I can honestly say I laughed the entire way through this impromptu shoot with my lovely friend D. I’m not the most comfortable poser at the best of times, but when she had me climbing up buildings into random windows and chilling in a garden bed I had to laugh. A lot. Plus my friend L happened to be standing behind the camera too and she found the entire concept of prancing around in the sunshine hilarious. Cue more laughter.
Now that we’ve hit Autumn it’s the perfect time of year to rock a midi skirt. It’s been a little bit chilly (dare I say) in Perth this past week with a few rainstorms and cloudy days, so a midi is the perfect skirt to keep the chill off your legs, but still be easy breezy enough if the weather changes. I fell in love with this Boohoo midi when I found it online late last year. The vintage-esque print sold me, and I loved the pleated, floaty look.
The skirt basically carries the entire outfit so a simple black singlet and a pop of red lipstick completed my look. You may remember this Target singlet from a previous post – it’s become a go-to for all of those moments when I require something plain enough to balance with a louder piece, but not too plain that it cannot hold its own. It’s comfortable and stretchy and can be paired with almost anything. The perfect staple.
My Mum always swore that matte lipstick was the only lipstick a lady needed, but being the cheeky lass I am, I didn’t believe her. The shinier the better I thought, until now. I’m newly converted to the amazingness of a good matte lip. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a huge fan of a glossier look lip, but I’ve found myself living in a few different matte lippies as of late. Should have listened to you sooner Ma, sorry!
Are you a midi skirt fan? Why/why not?
