I just spent an amazing weekend in Wellington (which is the capital city of New Zealand, for all of my overseas readers who don’t know much about the country I live in), where I got to celebrate plus size fashion, meet some great new people, catch up with old friends, eat delicious food, attend Wellington Fashion Week and photograph some gorgeous women for my Fat Girls Shouldn’t Wear Stripes project. More about that later though – first I wanted to share this outfit with you because I am so in love with this skirt!
So, we all know I’m not really friends with patterns, right. But then this skirt happened. It’s the Sweet Ride Print Skirt from their latest collection, and it’s divine! I love the colours, the print, the cut, the fabric … and the fact that it has pockets. That’s right, pockets.
It was pretty windy in Wellington (as per its reputation), so multiple layers were required. I left my hotel for breakfast wearing three layers and actually had to go back and put more on… Even though you can’t see most of them, here I’m wearing: a tank top, a tee, a cardigan, a coat, gloves, a scarf, a hat, super thick tights (I will have a post about tights/stockings coming up for you shortly), a skirt, socks and boots. Yep, all about the layers…
How do you layer up for cold weather?
