I won’t be posting more than once a week as there is still so much to do in my new abode. However, despite a forecast of heavy rain, we’ve decided to stop the unpacking and sorting today and go out to a film. We need to start behaving as though we’re living in the city of Brighton! And getting the vibe!
And just so you can see Brighton as I see it. Here’s a pic of some street art that I noticed only last week.
I’ve started putting pics on Instagram (see the tiny icon for it on the sidebar) but unlike most fashion bloggers, I don’t put a lot of me posing in a variety of outfits. I decided to be different! My blurb says that I love fashion but aim to do street photography. And most of the pics are of Brighton graffiti – plus other stuff! Do click on that icon and have a look.
Anyway, the weather here in the UK varies a lot. One moment it’s steaming hot (we’re get humid, uncomfortable heat here) the next it’s cool and raining. For instance, a couple of weeks ago I went out in cool cloudy weather in my jeans, an hour later the clouds cleared, the sun came out and I was unbearably hot.
So I popped into a charity shop and bought this.
The thing is that skirt was cool for that moment, but I’m never quite sure about this length.
And moreover, I think the way the skirt is cut below the waist (like a dirndl) adds inches to my hips so, despite the lovely colour, I haven’t worn it again.
However, there is one long skirt in my wardrobe I simply adore. I bought it in Tobago on a stall near the port for, I think, 18 or 20US$ and then wore it a lot on the cruise.
And note the top. I love wearing this skirt with that particular top.
I often see posts in the fashion blogosphere on whether prints should be mixed or matched. Well, here’s an example of prints that are very different, yet go together well. And, you know my advice when getting advice, just wear what you want, I think.
And the long skirt? In this instance, I love the length, the coolness of the fine thin cotton and just adore the vibrant tie-dye print. I wear it a lot. It was worth the price, every dollar of it!
That’s all for this week.
