Outfit

I wore this outfit to work on Thursday and it is definitely my favourite outfit at the moment. It was a chance to wear my pleated skirt that I made in sewing class for the first time and my new red trench coat. From the week that I started making this skirt I knew it would be one of my favourite items of clothing and I had been planning out what to wear with it in my mind for the couple of weeks until it was finished. I bought a red trench coat the other day to achieve this desired look. With the colder weather fast approaching I am trying to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe to counter balance stereotypical blacks and greys that are usually worn in winter. I love the vibrant blue and bright red together here.

beautiful skirt! it came out really pretty, i especially love the length of it. its so hard to find a nice, comfortable, mid-length skirt. although your starting to go into winter, your outfit reminds me of color-blocking. almost like your taking the spring trend into the winter. very nice!

What a cute work outfit! You made the skirt!? I'm jealous because my sewing maching is sitting helplessly in my closet begging for me to use it-I just can't find the time to fit it in. Also, that red trench is fierce. I love how you mixed your colors up!
