Masculine Meets Feminine: A Bow Tie & A Girly Skirt

Just a quick scheduled post today – we’re spending a weekend in Cornwall at a luxury hotel after I won a competition for a free night at The Llawnroc Hotel in Gorran Haven… I’m so excited! 

This is an outfit from a couple of weeks ago incorporating my bright chiffon shirt from Asos (sold out, sadly) and a big bow neck tie – it’s a little hard to see as my hair covers most of it. I like the contrast of masculine and feminine as I am generally a wearer of trousers, but then a skirt feels like a bit of a ‘day out’ for my legs so it’s a special treat for them 😉

Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend!

    That top is soooo retro looking and I love it! I think the floppy bow tie is a nice touch. I will need to try that soon. 🙂 Congrats on winning the competition! I saw a few of your photos on Twitter and it looks like fun! Hope you had a great weekend! <3

      I've not thought it before, but yes it does look quite vintage (probably why I like it)! Thanks Mimi! x

    Very pretty blouse. And you do look good in skirts so your legs can have more days out.
