The silly thing is I then spend most of my life living in jeans and so my beautiful dresses and skirts sit in the wardrobe waiting for a special occasion. This is really rather silly of me so I've decided to make more of an effort to wear more of my wardrobe.
My birthday fell in the category of "special occasion" which meant that abiding by my own Chloe logic it was a day I could reach for a skirt.
leather style skater skirt was a present I got for Christmas. I'd been hunting for the perfect piece of "leather" for my wardrobe for ages. I loved the trend but it was hard finding something that was flattering to my figure as leather is very unforgiving. I eventually found this flared skirt in New Look and it was a perfect flattering fit.
Next was deciding how to style it! I knew I wanted to wear it with something soft and fluffy but it took me a good few months to find something that was just right. I stumbled across this gorgeous pink cropped jumper in the Topshop sale in Fenwicks a few weeks ago and it was exactly what I'd been looking for.
Cropped jumpers are something that I've always avoided before, thinking that they'd look terrible on me and emphasise my bum and tum which are areas I don't particularly want people to notice. I now have a new found love for them though because they are perfect to wear with the right skirt.
This jumper is pretty short so obviously now that I'm over 30 and therefore have become slightly sensible I did wear it with a pink vest top underneath just to ensure that I didn't expose my midriff to all of Newcastle and also to keep me nice and warm.
As I mentioned in my previous post I spent a lot of my birthday loving all thing mint green after painting my nails a lovely shade of Tiffany and putting on my statement necklace I bought in a haul last year.
I finished my birthday outfit with a pair of boots I bought in Primark back in the Winter. I adore the little gold features.
This outfit was definitely something new for me, it was my first time wearing leather and a cropped jumper, but I really loved it, I will definitely be wearing this again soon.
