Charcoal A-line skirt with different jackets

Last time I am posting an article with winter clothes. Thursday you will see Spring, but I need to show you this first.
When I posted my cream boots with lime-green jacket I got the suggestion to combine the boots with an A-line skirt. Which I just happened to have (…): the charcoal skirt which you have seen before with my fur jacket and with my yellow polka-dot cardigan.
So here are a couple of my try-outs. In my opinion it was a good advice.

This is the first time I ignored my “rule” never to mix brown with black. When you are raised with this dogma, it is hard to let it go. But I saw so many lovely combinations on other blogs, that I decided it was time to move on.

When you look at the photos and you think: “she looks a bit funny..” …you are right. I had spent 15 minutes on a suncouch that morning and I look puffy. It would have been better to take photos the next day which was no option as I had to go to work. To make things worse, I had a bad hair-day and the photos are somewhat green. Never mind boys and girls, it is the outfits you have to judge.
Let me know your favourite.

To begin with: brown velvet jacket with the charcoal skirt.

My favourite is the leopard waistcoat. Second the brown velvet jacket.
Which one is your favourite?

Oh .. and I have linked this article to a blog called Not dead yet style (love this name), to gather with other bloggers over 40. At the end of the article called Visible Monday.#92, you can see over a hundred women of 40+ who think blogging is fun.
Also linked my boots to the Shoe Shine Brigade of Bella (The Citizen Rosebud), another fun initiative in blogger land.

Fur jacket with charcoal skirt

Before I went to the hairdresser (…) I photographed this jacket with my charcoal coloured skirt.
It was cold outside, but the jacket is nice and warm. Which is why I only wear it when it is freezing cold. Especially because it is an indoor jacket.

Sometimes when I wear it and the heating is high up, you can see steam rising up from my neck. My head becomes red and flustered and I regret having the jacket on.

I used to combine it with a lovely faux fur brownish skirt. But that was a long skirt and it didn’t fit me anymore. (Would probably have fitted after I had my waist liposucked, but I already gave it away before I thought of that.)

As the jacket is quite an eye-catcher I chose to put black sturdy boots on and not the cream coloured boots which I also own.

Reveiling a bit of leg. Sorry guys.

Till tomorrow
