KHAKI SILK SKIRT AND STRAPPY SANDALS

Hello dear friends, hope you are all well.

KHAKI SILK SKIRT AND STRAPPY SANDALS
Before I will tell you about the outfit of the day, I want to share with you a short story about it.  Quite some time ago, I received a regular monthly wedding anniversary gift from my husband in the form of a knitted jumper in richly saturated yellow colour that I didn't particularly like.  However, as the saying goes, you don't look a gift horse in the mouth, I thanked my husband for the gift.  As I was just about to try it on, when upon checking the composition of the fabric, I discovered that it contains mohair.  To say that I am allergic to mohair is to say nothing.  Just talking about it makes my skin itch and turn a scarlet red which was a "blessing in disquise" because now I had a legit reason to return the gift without upsetting my dear husband.  Turned out, it was that simple.  Unfortunately,  Bec and Bridge,the shop that he bought it from, does not give the money back  but the sale assistant was happy to do an exchange for something I like.

As I glanced around the racks, I came to realise that it wouldn't be easy to find a replacement.  Not that the clothes were bad but they were designed for far younger customers who are blessed with amazing figures and would not be ashamed to show off their midriff.  I chose a few items to try on but every time I put it on, I didn't like it on me at all.

Luckily for me, the shop is located in a massive shopping centre where I do my grocery shopping and which hosts my gym, so it became a part of my routine to make a detour there and look for a replacement. This practice went on and on for months.  I was feeling quite exhausted from this forced shopping experience but couldn't give up $250 and kept coming back.  Then, during the after-Christmas shopping, I went there on a whim and saw a skirt that I liked.  I wasn't particularly looking for another silk slip skirt, besides it was cheaper than the original purchase price but it was the best I could find so I took it to the register together with my credit note.  The shop assistant checked it on her computer and told me that today was a last day that I was able to use and as of tomorrow it would  expire!!!  I couldn't believe my luck.  She was very kind and even extended the date on the balance for another 6 months.

I like wearing it with the high neck sleeveless top in black which I bought last year from Victoria and Woods.  I always was attracted to this style but what also appealed to me that the print is quite delicate, the shape of the flamingo birds is lightly outlined so the print does not look too busy when worn with other prints. The collar is not solid and could be tied into an elegant bow which cascades down over the long key-hole opening at the back..

This classic skirt is made from wash silk, cut on the bias for and has an elasticated waistband for a flattering fit.

The shoes are new too.  I couldn't walk past these elevated multi-strap slides from Country Road with quite an unusual geometric heel shape.  The heel is not overly high which makes the shoes very comfortable yet stylish enough to wear on a special occasion.

  8. I love the skirt! And the top has a lovely back detail Anna. One of the bonuses of having short hair is being able to sho off more detail. Love it xx
