I didn’t have a velvet pleated skirt yet!
This is my fourth pleated skirt! But my first velvet one. As you probably have noticed, velvet is everywhere. I never loved it. I never even liked it. I always saw it as a dusty, old fashioned fabric. But when I was asked to choose something from Dresslily, I knew I wanted a new pleated skirt. And I wanted a metallic pleated skirt since last winter. So when I choose this one I didn’t even read were the skirt was made of and I thought it would be a polyester kind of material, and a bit metallic. When the parcel arrived I then saw that it was a velvet skirt. And even more to my surprise I thought it looked pretty cool!

Are we all used to the colder weather yet? Wearing socks, thights and leggings again? Sweaters and cardigans out of the closet? I hate the colder weather. I walk with bare legs as long as possible, with socks and boots that is. My bare foot days are over now. I so often think: brrrr, I wished I had put on some thights, but I hate those too! I always pull them as high as possible, which results in a ridiculous big belly. Gerben always says: just wear some stay-ups. Yeah, men! As if they are comfortable. But that’s probably not the intention either….
My outfit of the day
I also choose this cable sweater. I know now, with help from The Bad Buy Book series, that I should not wear off-white near my face. But white is good! And I love white and grey together. I am also looking for more v-neck sweaters. I find that much better than a round neck. And it allows this sweater to wear a blouse underneath. Sometimes I like that too. For today’s outfit I am wearing grey ankle boots with the skirt and for accesories I choose very pale pink earrings and a pearl brooche with a pearl bracelet. I know I will be wearing this velvet pleated skirt a lot this season!
