Styling A Utility Skirt and an Animal Print Top!

September 30, 2019

Animal Print is All That…

There has been a massive resurgence of animal prints, in every colour, everywhere you look!!

As a woman who has always dabbled in retro fashion – see here A bit of retro dressing on the side I’ve worn it to a lesser or greater degree my whole life, so I’m glad that it can be easily sourced as a trend.

I’ve paired this little t-shirt with a bone coloured utility style skirt, which is a favourite for a weekend look for me, instead of jeans.

Keeping It Tame..

I wanted the printed t-shirt – and the detailed, cropped, denim, military jacket to do the talking in this outfit so tamed the look down with the simple skirt, black sandals and hair in a single plait down the side.

I was also feeling a bit tired, so wasn’t really up for fiddling with the hair!!

Fab, Fun Finish!

It’s still cool enough here to need a jacket so I took the opportunity to give this one another airing.

I love that it’s cropped and well-shaped into the waist and that it can be so versatile, as when I wore it here for a dressed up date night with my tulle skirt Tulle skirt style

The jeans belt, along with the sunnies and the necklace, all of which I’ve also had for years, were welcome additions to the outfit.

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web for this new month!

    Love the cropped military jacket! I have a jacket in a different color but I do like the military style. I love that blouse! I never tire with animal prints. The black belt looks great with this look too!
    thanks for linking!
