Only Once August - The Final Days

Monday, September 03, 2012


Day 30. Back to work after five days off, it's always a struggle but when it's cold and windy it's even harder to get motivated (I'm wearing boots and a scarf in August for goodness sake!).

I chose this skirt as I've only worn it once before but looking at these pictures I'm not sure that I like it. I mean, I like it but I'm not sure it suits me.

It's neither a maxi or a midi but somewhere in-between, without heels it makes me look oddly proportioned.

It looked much better with heeled boots (here) so maybe it will have to be a winter skirt? I'm just not sure… what do you reckon?



Day 31. The last day. I wanted to go out with a bang and wear something utterly spectacular (no idea what that would have been) but the printroom called for my attention once again and I was back in jeans and a t-shirt.

I think that I'm going to unofficially continue this challenge. There are skirts that I didn't get the chance to wear thanks to a mixture of work and weather. Can you all please cross your fingers for a few more days of sunshine before it leaves us for months - appreciate it.

Love

  1. Oooh, what a wonderful cheerful skirt! I love it! I know what you mean about inbetween lenghts, I have a few like that! I like your inspiration Monday outfit, great one! I am not totally enamoured with my interpretation of this week!
    I have been trying to wear things I've only worn once but not really managed to post as been on holiday!

    1. It is rather cheerful isn't it? It's probably what attracted me to it in the first place.
      I've really enjoyed wearing all the things I rarely wear, it's like having a new wardrobe without the expense - what's not to like about that?

  2. I see what you mean about the skirt. How about shortening it or adding something at the hem to make it longer (lance or fringing?).
    The spending started Saturday morning for me on a blog sale :)

  3. I love the print on the skirt - would it be worth taking it up to a more comfortable length?

    1. Definitely worth a try. The more I look at it, the more I dislike the length!

  4. I love the first outfit. The print on it is gorgeous. the length seems fin though.

    1. Thank you :)
      It's all I have in my wardrobe zoo, unless leopard print counts?

  5. I love the skirt too. It doesn't look like it would be too hard to make it knee length and then perhaps you could turn the excess into a cushion cover or something?

    1. I'd have to use it for something definitely, it'd be too pretty to waste. Oh, I have such a huge pile of things to alter or mend!

  6. just an idea, but could you wear the skirt as a dress? with a belt and a cardi, maybe? the pattern is so cute!

  7. I adore this skirt - where is it from? I want one! :)

    I agree that it looks loads better with your tan heeled boots. I think it's the tan as well as the heel that makes it work - the black looks a little harsh against the pretty colours.
