FYI: I like this outfit so much I will probably repeat it this week. No, scrap that. I will definitely be repeating.
A few weeks ago someone left a comment on my blog asking if I was sponsored by ASOS. At that point I realized that I should probably calm down in my ordering frequency and stop buying so much from one place.
So I consciously resisted in the hope of adding a bit more variety in what I wear. What I have concluded in that time is that I can only ignore the “New In” section for so long and so here we are, with another haul of goodies.
To clarify I am not sponsored by ASOS - I am addicted to ASOS and the new skirt and belt acquisitions featured below have only acted to reaffirm this.
I find that midis, especially those with volume, can be dangerous territory. If the waistband isn’t cinched in properly and if the fabric begins to flare at your hips you can look very expansive (i.e., frumpy) very quickly. Thankfully this one is elasticated at the waist so you can choose where you want it to sit.
I plopped a metallic belt over the top because that was also new and I feel a compulsion to wear new things immediately. I love how it looks and I say this because the aesthetics of an elasticated waistband scream to be disguised. It ties with a chain at the back, which is handy because it can expand, or contract depending on where you wear it on your body/how big your dinner was.
This outfit would probably look significantly better with heels but these Steve Madden leopard flats are a daily must for me right now. After an initial abuse-of-the-Achilles they are now nicely worn in and feel like slippers J
Top: Topshop – Link!
Skirt: ASOS – Link! (PS. The fabric of this is so nice - enough weight to flow nicely and zero creasing)
Belt: ASOS – Link!
Flats: Steve Madden – Link!
The background is so boring – my sandy terrace AGAIN – but at the moment I am either in meetings or at home and asking clients/Roger and Rose to photograph my new skirt is not an option. I might rope Laura Carlson in for a photo session tomorrow though – I plan on wearing the other part of my ASOS order and I am excited for it :)
