Polka Dot Maxi and Knotted Shirt

It’s the weekend at last – I hope you all have some great plans! In the UK we’ve been having some great (i.e. sunny) weather at the weekends for about four weeks in a row now, with the rain continuing during the weekdays… it never happens like that normally! It certainly makes outfit photographing a LOT easier. 

Although I don’t expect this milder weather to last much longer, I was able to wear just my summer [holiday] boyfriend shirt and a maxi the day these were taken. And thank you, ASOS, for reducing the polka dot maxi I’d had my eye on for so long – I do love an ASOS bargain. Or three, or four πŸ˜‰

    I love this outfit – it looks cute and comfy. My husband thinks we're style twins, because every time he sees me looking at one of your outfits, he says, "That looks like something you would wear."

    I love the monogrammed necklace – I've been wanting one of those for ages. Since I'm mildly afraid to take the plunge on spending that much money on jewelry, I'd love to know if you think the quality is worth it? It seems like a piece I'd be able to wear for the rest of my life.

    Beautiful pictures….love the way your skirt flows at the bottom!!

  18. 21 October 2012 / 9:14 pm

    That last picture of your is beautiful! Is that the new hair color or still the old? Either way – gorgeous!

      It's sort of neither, F – I merely touch up the roots to as close as possible to the colour my hairdresser does it for me. It's so grey I have to do it about every three to four weeks, boo :((

      But I think this was taken about a week after the last trip to the salon perhaps…? And thank you as always for your lovely compliments xo

    Loving your skirt!!! Where is your enviable arm candy??? x x x

    Lovely maxi skirt! It must be the next most comfortable thing to wear after the maxi dress! The shoes are gorgeous, and hopefully seen again soon!

    • 23 October 2012 / 10:28 pm

      Yes it's their first outing since last winter, I'd almost forgotten about them! They will be seen again! xo

    Beautiful shoes – I love how the wine colour and substantial shape ground the outfit. I too am holding on to summery-transitional-gear in anticipation of being deathly done with my winter garb come spring! You are gorgeous in this silhouette.

    Oh, Catherine… you are just soooo lovely, Lady! Adore the skirt and all the sparkly accessories!!! ~Sarah
