Fashion | The pink velvet midi skirt

_DSC0459

Firstly one photo? Yes… one photo. When we took this photo it was just before it chucked down with rain and it was also freezing… I don’t believe my face does justice to how cold it was!

On the other side I’ve also been really struggling with blog photos of late. As we continue on our gym journey I’m really feeling and seeing a discrepancy between my body and how i feel inside, thats most likely a post for another day, but it does explain the lack of photos on this post.

I have been in love with midi skirts for a while now and while I have a gingham one for the summer months, when I saw this pink velvet number on sale in Anthropologie I knew it would be a worthwhile wardrobe investment for evening wear and the colder, winter months.

Although I wouldn’t say it photographs perfectly, in real life it is quite lovely! (Also I probably wouldn’t suggest the crazy thick jumper I’m pairing with it either – unless like me you were freezing, even under sherling!) For a night out a pair it with a thinner black top and blazer, this would streamline the look or for something more relaxed a simple white t shirt can never be forgotten! If I remember correctly I also got this on uber sale, reduced from £98.00 to only £29.99… bargain or what?

Budgeting for Anthro . . .

We fell in love with . . . Their incredible door knobs, Ryan Hoffmann Bowls and two placemats. and we will most likely go back for two of their large cappuccino mugs . . . and possibly their little umbrella ring pot for keeping things safe . . .

I am a lover of expensive and beautiful things for the home. I will spend more money on these pieces than my clothes without even a second glance and without supervision I will run rampant with our budget if we’re (Josh) is not careful.

Naturally then I would love Anthropologie. I first heard of the store via style blogs (for clothes) and truthfully I didn’t think much more of it until we needed bowls to complete our dinning set and I thought why not have a quick look . . . that won’t harm anyone right?

Well heres the thing . . . I ended up finding some gorgeous bowls in various patterns (my original want was for something Mediterranean) and I was happy to stretch the price as after all most of our dining set was inexpensive Ikea so why not right?

So on our weekend away we thought this was the time then, we set ourselves a little budget + extras and went to the London Branch up Regents Street.

We did not end up with the original bowls (although they are still online) but instead these beautiful ones by the artist Ryan Hoffmann. This may surprise you but they were actually found and liked by Josh! Who would have thought I had trained him so well hey?

Throw in some gorgeous door knobs for a chest of drawers project I have in mind for spring and two place mats for our bedroom and we were two very happy shoppers!

We go back to our regular fashion on Thursday with my weekend outfit and fun flats on friday so stay tuned!
