I have come to love flared skirts this year, it’s something I never thought would look good on my generous hips but I stand corrected!

A leotard is perfect to cinch the waist in as a contrast to the skirt’s style. Accordion skirt has a cute ring to it doesn’t it?

I love that the skirt has beautiful fluid motion to its swishes, and I thought that the strappy heels that I wore for Diwali would go perfectly with this look. I added the belt as the finishing touch to the look.

I love this new bag that I’ve acquired and I have brought it to work all week! Green is one of my particular favourite colours πŸ™‚

I have my grandmother to thank for telling me years ago that the colour red always looked amazing on me. I have used that piece of advice ever since – be it red lipstick, red glasses, a red top/bottom, or a red accessory – you’ll see that colour on me pretty often!

Here are a few more pics taken that evening, it was a beautiful sunset πŸ™‚

I hope that you challenge yourself to take a risk with your wardrobe – even if it’s just one article of clothing – buy something that you wouldn’t normally pick. And hey, if you make mistakes along the way..it’s okay!! Just remember that your curves, big or small, are beautiful and they become you πŸ™‚

Much love,

    1. thanks H!! 😘
      Yes totally agree on the soothing nature of the color green! That’s probably why I like some shades of blue as well πŸ™‚

    1. heehee! ASOS has plenty of pretty swishy skirts but I think Mod Cloth is the best in that department. The colours and patterns are So cute πŸ˜€
