Seeing as it’s now officially tights weather, it can get a little bit dark and dreary dressing in predominantly black outfits when you’d quite like to add a little brightness! Even though this outfit is quite bottom-heavy black, I’m hoping the fluffy cream jumper and pink bag offsets this enough without looking odd. I’ve always thought a little bow here or there works wonders, especially in wintertime! And when I was sent the most beautiful Kate Spade bow bangle to style, I couldn’t picture it looking as cute without a little pastel and pink thrown in! Who said winter was all about dark clothing? Plus, teamed with my bow front skirt and bow-adorned ballet flats, I was feeling quite proud (and a little bow-ed out), having brightened up an otherwise average black tights & skirt outfit!
I chose this outfit while out and about with my pal Kristabel, when we headed to the happiness-enducing event that is Cath Kidston‘s press day. It might seem like a world away from the oncoming snow and colder days (eek!), but it’s never a bad thing to daydream a little about summer outfits! Have a peek below if you’re in to safari animals, budgies on pyjamas, and flowers on bathing suits… How long have we got til Spring?! x
