I hadn’t worn a skirt or dress on the blog for ages, then I do it twice in one week.
Not only that but I’ve worn a dress as a skirt (basically by covering up the top half with a sweater) both times. It’s the easiest and quickest way to get the most out of your wardrobe… all too often I relegate dresses to summer storage and forget to think of them as skirts in the colder months. (Click here to see what the rest of the dress looks like.)
The coral cashmere sweater is an old favourite and it’s the perfect partner for hot pink – add black accessories (and a big ol’ punch of in-your-face polka dots) and you’ve got a signature Catherine look for autumn. The crystal drop earrings haven’t been worn nearly enough since I bought them earlier this year (I think I’m more afraid of the multi colours than I should be), so it was great to tie in the orangey-coral colour of the earrings to the sweater.
The weather has now definitely shifted into gloves and woolly scarves territory in the UK, so this may be one of the last posts this side of Christmas without a big coat – we shall see.
I’m actually looking forward to wearing my coats again – what about you? Are you a fan of throwing a statement coat over everything? Or do you make dresses into skirts with the simple addition of a sweater… do share, I’d love to know!
P.S. If you like this cashmere sweater you may like to see how else I’ve worn it: with boyfriend jeans / with smart suit trousers and a checked coat / with blue leopard print jeans / with a statement necklace and white mini skirt.
