Wardrobe Wednesday: Warm enough for a skirt!

The challenge was set last week for no denim and no black. My wardrobe in summer is a lot more colourful and less denim dependent so when the sun came out on Friday (and stayed out for several days) I delved into the back of my wardrobe to my summer skirts with great excitement.

I love long, floaty skirts, that are cool, colourful and shade my legs from the harsh New Zealand sun. I love walking along the beach bare-foot with my skirt billowing around my legs like a sail. I love hoisting up my skirt to feel the splash of the surf on my ankles.

I ditched my Ugg boots and dusted off my jandals. My poor little tootsies haven’t seen the light of day in months and I gave my nails a lick of colour to make them jandal worthy.

I strung my wrists with beads and bangles, which Alice grabbed, clawed and chewed so much that I had to take them off and only put them back on when she had a nap!

This photograph was taken at the weekend, by my hubbie, but I’ve worn a skirt for five day’s in a row now! On Sunday I wore a black, short-sleeved top with my orange skirt and a bright pink scarf to match the pink trim at the bottom of the skirt. Hubbie remarked, ‘You look nice!’ – well there you have it – Wardrobe Wednesday is definitely worth it!

I came across the beautiful orange skirt in a shop in Picton. It’s originally from Nepal. The purple top is a much worn present from hubbie – an Icebreaker top. Underneath I’m wearing a black top from ‘Baby Star’ which is awesome for breastfeeding (got holes cut out where my bra is – so I can lift up my purple top to feed without tummy exposure – bravo!).

And to finish up I’m sharing this gorgeous hat that Charlotte decorated. She got it from the Warehouse and used fabric pens to decorate.
