I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Night Flowers Look
This dark floral skirt, is a total shameless mainstream knockoff of the actual skirt that inspired it by Ted Baker called the Grettia. At the time when the skirt came out, I wanted to buy the Ted Baker skirt… but my cheapness got the better of me, so when I saw the Simons version of it (it’s close but not exact), I bought it and then… wanted the Ted Baker version instead. LOL!
Note to self: Buy what you want, not cheap substitutes.
I threw on a pinstriped, navy blue blazer, because the navy blue is in the skirt and picks up colours in there nicely, plus keeps me warm while looking polished.
I used a silk pink dress from Equipment that is a gorgeous shirt dress, tucked into my skirt so that it is used as a simple, silk top, and then I decided to top it off with a vintage silk magenta obi belt nicked from my mother’s closet (with her permission).
The pink in the dress (used as a top), goes with the pink in the skirt, and the obi belt also picks up in those colours as well, highlighting them rather than letting them fade a bit into the background if I had worn a more green or navy blue top with this (as I have done in the past).
Unexpectedly, I decided on olive green suede heels to go with the very light hints of green in the skirt. It seems to go well with the magenta pink, this olive green, and I like it. But I’d normally wear black or dark brown heels with this.
The entire outfit makes me think of flowers blooming in the night.
