Bright Cold

Skirt: Courtesy of Warehouse. Sweatshirt: TopShop. 
Boots: Jeffery Campbell 'Lita'.

I love this faux leather trimmed skirt so much that even when they didn't have it my size I took it anyway. I bought it 4 sizes too big and took it to a tailor. 

The boy and I have began to think about our wedding. It's a tough process because I'm not really a wedding girl.... You know how some girls grow up knowing what their dress will look like and which flowers they want? I'm the opposite. If I wasn't so scared of my mum I would elope.  When I mentioned to her that I was thinking about doing that she stared at me long and hard and said "that's not very nice" and then gave me a side eye. Let the planning begin! (Oh God.)

i love the jumper with the skirt. it's a cool look.

great combo... this sudden onset of freakishly cold weather has sent me into a frenzy each morning over what to wear! I'm so excited to be back in London in a couple of weeks and I can probably shed a layer or two!
I'm not big into weddings either, I'd rather spend that money on some amazing travels.. but if I ever did have a wedding it would be more of a party for family and friends and celebration, good wine, good food and beautiful outfits galore! you seem similar, I'm sure your day will be fabulous and unique just like you and your dress sense!

i feel the same way about weddings -- when they're intricately planned they seem so corny/dull :X but I suppose you must satisfy your mum :x hmmm

ahhhh i love the blue lita's! i need them!!!! looks awesome! im not a wedding girl at all, took me 9 years to come around to a engagement and the thought of planning a wedding scares the crap out of me. I havent even looked at a wedding magazine and i got engaged on new years day. I'd elope but my mum would hunt me down and kill me!

I love today's simply classy outfit, though I always get inspired by what you wear!

Congrats on your engagement! :) (I know what you mean about not being a wedding girl per se...at least you can still make it low-key.)

Asanda said...

Hi Ashley, Im going to order my hair extensions but I'm struggling to decide on the shade organic (darker brown) or shade espresso (a bit lighter brown)My hair is a similar colour to yours I was wondering what colour do you have?

Appreciate the advice. Thankyou.

I truly love this look. The only look that inspired me blog about. I'm never the one to like to wear skirts and this look altered that. I'm aiming for this look on Christmas.
