Winter Florals

I really love florals, so I've been on the look out for a floral dress or skirt that will work well with winter wear. I found this floral rose patterned skirt from the Red Cross charity shop a few weeks ago for a bargain £1.50!


Its by 'Per Una' which is a Marks & Spencer range and the features I love are the asymetrical hem and the chiffon type fabric. I decided to toughen up my look with my black biker jacket, boots and studded belt.


Will you be in florals this winter?

I found something of my Mom's other day. Actually, my grandmother had given it to her. It had been in the drawer..for I don't know how long..it was a very long skirt that I could possibly make 2 out of..it seems..but I cut a good bit off of it and hymned it..it has sort of paisley feel..but red. If that makes sense. Its a great winter weight. And well, we've been getting some cold stuff this week. Even if its suppose to be mild the coming week.

Happy Halloween!

The skirt looks great with the biker boots and jacket. I love florals and will be wearing them to brighten up the dark days to come.

I need your boots for my plaid skirts (you see I added a vest with the second outfit!).

The asymmetrical hemline...I used to avoid them - but it looks great on you. And I wouldn't have thought to add the biker jacket. I'm learning SO much.

Not sure what florals I can dig up for winter....will have to see.

Enjoy YOUR weekend, too!

Lovely outfit. I like the way you softened it with the skirt (or as you say toughened up with the leather jacket and boots). I think it works very well together.

I like the contrast of the florals with the jacket, and the belt is such a great detail.
I'll try to incorporate some florals...

Have a nice weekend

I'm hoping to wear my tan boots (uggs, but not the real ones) with the skirt I hemmed. I wore my cool tights last night and my other boots..made for jumping and running and being silly in. Really, it was much a do about Halloween that meant..nothing really other than being silly. Hope you had a great Halloween.
