A Spring-like outfit for a Good Friday spent doing not much of anything, really: Terry and I jumped in the car and had a drive around, stopping off wherever we felt like it and just generally enjoying the sunshine.
I, of course, enjoyed the sunshine while wearing 5″ heels:
These were from New Look last year, and as some of you may remember, I liked them so much I also bought them in black and navy. This pale pink colour is the perfect shade for Spring, though, and is pale enough to be almost “nude” on me, so it works with pretty much everything.
The skirt, meanwhile, is one of many, many midi-length skirts/dresses I’ve bought this year. I’m so happy this length is currently back in fashion – I know a lot of people find midis frumpy, but I think they’re the perfect length to wear with very high heels. I’m not averse to the odd mini skirt, either (Although I did get very sick of them being the only hem length available for so long. I’m only 5″4, but the dresses in most stores barely skim my knickers…), but if I’m wearing a shorter skirt I’ll normally wear a lower heel with it: midis allow me to break out the 5″ stilettos without fear of looking like I’m going clubbing, rather than, say, prancing around on a country road:
I love a skirt with pockets:
I think this one looks like I’m about to get into a gunfight:
I was in the process of falling backwards into a ditch here, hence the odd, reaching hand…
And after that, we went and bought wine and cupcakes. Because you’re actually not allowed to have a fashion blog unless you mention cupcakes on it at least once a week: true fact.
Thanks to Terry for taking the photos!
