Festive dressing in multi coloured silk

First I bought the skirt. Then I remembered, it was near my face that I need all these bright colours. Therefore, a skirt was not such a good idea. Solved it by buying a matching jacket (…… If I keep solving problems like this, the bank will soon own my wardrobe.)

It is really better to wear them separately, but when there is a party, they work quite well together as a party suit. Do you agree? Or do you think it is too much?
If you agree on the party suit I have another question: can I wear this at Christmas? Or is it too much like summer?

I tried the skirt with two different tops: a black jacket and a red/raspberry coloured shirt.
The black jacket balances the red better in my opinion. With the shirt there is too much red going on.
I added the long green necklace1) as counterbalance for the red and 2) to give the outfit a bit of a modern look. Because, although it is a recent buy, the style looks a bit outdated. Don’t you think? Nice and feminine, but not modern.

 

And last one…. the failure. The skirt came with a separate sash and I decided to put the shirt over the skirt and the sash around my waist…. Oohhh what a mistake.

Notice the different shoes I am wearing: black closed shoes (leather), red closed, red open (both suède).

PS I now know how to keep my photographs the same size in my blog. But it means I cannot crop them as much as I used to do. Before I just cropped them until there was nothing on either side that bothered me. Have to watch the background of my photos more in future.
