Green and Grey for Winter


Another winter outfit and a 50's style jacket, that is such a classic piece!


Deana Peplum Jacket, Stripe Top and Green Underbust Pencil Skirt - Collectif
Cosmic Kitty Brooch - c/o Erstwilder
Eclipse Earrings - c/o Revere Folie
Stockings - eBay
Shoes - Wittner

This is another outfit that I purchased at the end of last winter. I bought the top and skirt at a local retro store, I was pretty excited at the time as they were stocking some Collectif pieces and I bought the jacket on sale from the Collectif website.... And here they are! I like this jacket with a traditional black wiggle but I thought why not wear it with this awesome green one!? My little Erstwilder space cat adds a nice bit of colour to the outfit too I think. 

I have been decorating a bit more around the house, it is definitely feeling more cosy. There is still plenty to do, it doesn't end but it has been fun shopping for homewares (which I love) and setting up things that I bought ages ago just because I couldn't help myself.

I can't believe how warm it has been, it makes me excited for summer outfits and swimming at the beach but there are still plenty of winter looks that I want to wear. 

This Sunday is the Fifties Fair and I am so exited! I set up my sewing table this week and yesterday I spent a few hours repairing the dress I am wearing to the event. I can't wait to share my outfit and photos here on the blog, there will be photos on my Instagram during the day so keep an eye out if you follow me.

Have a great weekend!

  2. I've never given those pencil skirts a second look on the Collectif website, but seeing one on you I really like it! It'd probably be all out of proportion on me, but I feel more willing to give one a go now... I have this jumper too from the last sale and I've honestly gotten so much wear out of it. I love the material and the cut :) x

  4. Gorgeous look! That jacket is the perfect piece for fall - I love the shape, with the fur collar and the peplum. So flattering and feminine. You're really making me jones for some colder weather here in the northern hemisphere!

  5. This is one of the looks that is just a joy to wear in winter, I love a little jacket with faux fur teamed with a pencil skirt. It's so classic and just works wonderfully. It looks smashing on you! I'm sure I'll be wearing something similar in a few months time. x

  8. I love these shades of green - so gorgeous. Your skirt is just perfect - is there a more classic look than a pencil skirt, seams and t-bars? Kx
