Check Mate

Whoaaa last week of September already! During my college and uni days, September went by so slowly but working full time, the month seem to have flown by and left me behind. Not long till Halloween and before you know it Christmas will be here. As the colder months set in, I turn to my ultimate staple-the knitted jumpers to incorporate in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I love collecting them in various sizes, styles, colours and prints. I like to wear them lady-like midi skirts when the weather is not to cold to bare the legs and switch to jeans or just add tights when it gets colder. This one from Boohoo is my firm favourite a the moment as it not too chunky and the tartan print is bang on trend. I paired it with wet look midi skirt from Boohoo as well and finished it off with a pair of ankle boots. Your thoughts on the look?

  6. This is immaculate (as always) :D The sweater looks vintage, I love the patterns! You are totally rockin' that skirt. I have as of yet to get a pleather skirt. I keep waffling on it. I don't know if I would like a dumb poser in it or not. Haha. If I did get on though, I would choose a similar length as you did. The shorter ones tend to give off the wrong impression in my mind. Anyway, the skirt looks wonderful on you and it pairs beautifully with the sweater. Great boots, also! :P

  20. It's no wonder this skirt is your favourite, the length and cut are fabulous on you! My favourite part of September are the days when it's still warm enough to go in bare legs but you need a sweater at the same time. That's perfect weather to me :)
