I’ve always found it difficult to define my style, and this outfit compared to the previous one demonstrates why. I’ve done a sartorial U-turn and gone from punk to pink, feisty to floaty, and loud to ladylike…is that too much alliteration? Anyway, I was in the mood for something softer and calmer…an outfit to put me in a relaxed frame of mind, so I pulled this Asos grey pleated maxi skirt out of the wardrobe and paired it with a blush pink jumper.
I love maxi skirts but I rarely have the occasion to wear them except on holiday because it’s usually either too cold, too wet or too windy.
I love maxi skirts but I rarely have the occasion to wear them except on holiday because it’s usually either too cold, too wet or too windy. I’ve had this skirt for a couple of years but hadn’t got around to wearing it. It’s not the easiest thing to iron, so that rules it out of my holiday wardrobe, but I do love the colour. I find soft grey a very soothing hue, particularly when teamed with pale pink. I last wore this jumper with jeans and a floral jacket, but as it’s quite a thin knit and has elbow-length sleeves it works well in Summer. The skirt has darker satin sections in it which create a little shine when the sun catches them.
Everything about this outfit is calming and peaceful: the silvery-grey hues of the skirt and bag, silver and pearl jewellery, the flower-embellished sunglasses – it’s impossible not to feel serene in this ensemble. While the world seems to be going crazy and everything appears to be in turmoil, the need to create a sense of calm is more important than ever. An outfit might not change much…but it’s a start.
Are you a style chameleon like me or do you tend to stick to the tried and tested? Let me know in the comments!
