Swinging yellow skirt with a blue jacket

Yellow skirt with blue jacketStill keeping my promise to show you more skirts and dresses. I wanted to pair this yellow skirt with a blue jacket. A jacket that wasn’t too long, not too short (belly showing), fitted, not too warm, not too cold. Can you believe my luck when I found this versatile jacket in the sale? The skirt was a holiday find in Spain last year. You already saw my reports on that holiday here and here. The skirt was really inexpensive and a bit of a risk. With its dangling strips it reminded me of a Hawaiian skirt. I wasn’t sure whether it would look dead common or quirky. The combination with the classic jacket fixes that. It creates a juxtaposition (I love that word.) View Post

A long black circle skirt by Max Mara

long black circle skirt by Max Mara with yellow jumper (Zara), red suede shoes and a black belt also by Max MaraThis long black circle skirt by Max Mara is not easy to style. At least not for me. I tried it before (here with a green leather jacket) and I did not really like it that much. Perhaps because the colours were too somber together? Anyway, I hung the skirt in my closet. Together with the matching jacket. When I bought this skirt suit two years ago at the Max Mara outlet I combined it with a lime yellow shirt (as seen here). I thought it was a terrific 1940/1950 style. My husband Ron thinks the suit looks like I am dressed for a funeral. Hence this cheerful yellow jumper from Zara. At the end of this post you will see another combination. No… don’t jump right to the bottom… I am not putting effort into writing this post for you to skip it. Right, you are back. View Post
