I always say I don’t like velvet and forget about this grey velvet pleated skirt I have! It sometimes even looks like silver. But this is really the only velvet item I own.
We are already a few weeks into the new year. Most people have cleared their Christmas decorations. It was gone in our house on January 2nd. I always find it so weird to leave the tree standing after the holidays. And I am always glad when all the mess is gone, I like my interior very minimalistic. My girlfriend always leaves it for quite a while, don’t you Gerdi?
Grey velvet pleated skirt with black.
I think the first two months of the year are the most terrible ones. So boring, so cold, so unsociable. Holidays are still to far away to look forward to. And if things don’t go well, March is still like that, one long boring month. I want to go outside, barbeque, read a book in the sun, etc. I will have to be patient for a while. Not my strong point. And I also hate transition collections, so the first two months are for me the shop your wardrobe months! Which is a good thing of course. I also didn’t buy anything new in November. Learning proces.
I’m wearing one of my favorite pleated skirts on my blog today. A velvet grey pleated skirt. I’ve had it for years and I enjoy wearing it. First of all, it is of course wonderfully warm, and sometimes it looks like silver. And that while I don’t like silver at all.
How I like to wear a grey skirt.
I prefer to wear it with a white or off-white sweater, or of course with black. But grey can actually be combined with any color, even brown. The sweater has lantern sleeves. I love a simple sweater with no print or application, but then with a statement sleeve. The ankle boots are so cool, and so amazingly comfortable. But I also love to wear this skirt in early spring with white sneakers.
I have statement earrings in but they are really the lightest earrings I have. Which is very nice but nowadays also a must. When I wear heavy earrings my earlobes stretch so much. Terribly ugly and I’m also afraid they’ll just tear out one day. Is that even possible?
