I just realised that last week was a bit of a "how to wear spring/summer items when it turns cold" week. The Boden skirt was from SS16 and it's a light material with light coloured lining - I was just about to pack it away with the rest of my spring/summer wardrobe. The Versace dress is also a SS item: a very fine knit, probably more designed for milder days and bare legs. And the black dress is actually a sleeveless piece, also SS16.
I have a seemingly endless supply of black long-sleeve tops and opaque tights, so it's really just a matter of layering them with whatever I fancy in the morning. What do you think: yay or nay?
I thought this skirt would have to go into hibernation as I wasn't sure it would go with black tights and winter jumpers, but I think it kinda works...

Remember how I said that I still have clothes on my wardrobe I don't ever wear? Well, I'm trying to force myself to either wear them or let them go and this dress is one of those items. I think I've had it since 2011 (so pre- little M) and only ever wore it once. Bit booby for the office, even with another top underneath but just about OK. Might be able to justify keeping it.
Not sure whether this dress doesn't need any accessories but I was running late and couldn't figure out what to put with it in a rush.
