we were invited to a 40th birthday party. It was to be in a marquee on a lifestyle block. Now, what to wear....I didn't want to dress too casual, but given it is spring and the nights are still quite cold and the venue was a marquee, the last thing I wanted to be was cold. I was the nominated driver so warming myself up from the inside was not going to be the answer. Given it is spring, I also didn't want to turn up in all my winter woollies. I decided that this skirt and top combo was my answer (along with the wool jacket I put in the car just in case). The weather gods however were smiling on me and I really didn't need all of my layers.
The blouse I blogged about here. The skirt was made using NewLook 6345. This is the same pattern I used to make my pencil skirt here. This time however I added two pleats to the front and two pleats to the back. The fabric is a mystery camo green linen fabric remnant that my mother gave to me. I added slant pockets to the skirt and large belt tabs.
With the skirt and blouse combo I added my new grey leather boots and grey tights plus the beautiful glass necklace I won on The House That AM Built (see AM if you are lerking I put it to good use).
