Evening peaches! I am excited to share with you this delicious “fall” inspired outfit and three fabulous ways to wear it. When I am performing, sometimes I have limited space for extra outfits in my luggage so I do my absolute best to condense and capsulate the pieces I bring with me.
Although autumn screams ambers, browns and flicks of gold – when I saw this delicious combination on Aspire Style – I knew it was the ideal outfit to pack in my weekend bag and wear multiple times. This grey tulle skirt by “Little Mistress” c/o Aspire Style has all the wow factor yet practicality. Paired with this mustard cardigan (no top underneath) and neatly tucked into the skirt creates a more glamorous look and looks great with an evening bag. Team with a colour coordinating pair of heels from Ruby Shoo (available here) and I am ready to go.
What I absolutely adore about this outfit is just how comfortable it really is! The tulle skirt has a soft under slip to avoid any scratches to your legs. Because of the t bar ankle strap and sturdy heel, these sixties inspired heels kept me dancing all night. The skirt travels really well and just needed a “shake” when I took it out of my weekend bag – absolutely ideal if don’t have time to iron! Outfit number two is a more casual look for relaxing in, seeing friends or maybe for a nice little lunch somewhere. Adding a pair of comfy converse, a white tank top and vintage headscarf takes this glam outfit to a more casual but still very pretty little get up. The mustard cardigan is soft as well as bright and really adds a playful “pop” to the outfit.
Whether you work in a more corporate place or even just at home, this outfit fits the bill. I added a pair of navy blue tights and a matching navy blue top underneath and hair neatly in a non-fussy bun – ready to get down and focused on work. If you plan to wear this to the office – why not wear a pair of flats for the day and pop the matching heels in your bag for drinks after work.
Just because the leaves on the path outside are all shades of autumn doesn’t mean that you can’t mix it up a bit. I will be wearing this tulle skirt all the way through to the party season and cannot wait to pair with a cropped top and a bit of bling!
Recently I have been performing all weekend every weekend both as a solo artist and with the band I am part of – The Northernettes. It has been a challenge to find balance but a delightful adventure at the same time. One of my close friends has also reminded me that without balance, we struggle to maintain grace. Life is full of events, memories and occasions and what we attend, achieve and make room for ultimately determines whom we are and the paths we will later take.
‘ I hope I can be the autumn leaf who looked at the sky and lived. And when it was time to leave, gracefully it knew life was a gift ‘ – Dodinsky
