Wardrobe Wednesday Winter Staples

Nin has been focusing this month on wardrobe staples for winter. Mainly I've just been wearing whatever I like because, well because I want to find something fun in my wardrobe every day without thinking about rules too much.

This week I am wearing a denim skirt I made about 6 years ago. When I made it it finished just below my calf which as well as not being a great length on me also makes me look rather conservative and slightly like I may be part of a particular religious group (this is made even more so with my long hair).

This outfit works well for bike riding in the winter - although I am still wanting something like these gorgeous fingerless gloves. You can buy them on felt - best NZ crafty website.
Gorgeous assistant dressed himself. Photos - what can I say? Winter photography blues!

Skirt - made by me
Jacket - op shop hand me down
t-shirt - jay-jays about 4 years ago
Boots - bought in the UK
Tights bought in Turkey
Bad hair - naturally mine!

You look fab! Love the velvet jacket :) And I get it with the length and long hair... for me it was getting another car that didn't make me look like I was part of our local religous group and I will never wear a scarf around my head in this area for that exact reason! Whether its in fashion or not :)
