Some Winter Boho Romance
This skirt is another item I haven't worn in a long time but hadn't gotten around to donating - mostly because I knew I still liked the skirt, I was just going through a style phase where I didn't want to wear it. I paired it with a softer blouse and the embroidered coat, lace up boots and a hooded scarf for some "winter romance" vibes and I'm pretty pleased with it. I feel like it winterized really well and now I'm going to have to try it with some of my other boots and newer coats!
This was for the Dark Romance style challange on Instagram under the hashtag #darkstylecoven and I love the outfit. I layer this dress quite a bit because I love the volume of the skirt and layer of the layers but I hadn't tried this skirt under it yet. The darpey coat returned because I felt the aysmmetetical here works well with bigger skirts and I had to wear my red cloak because ...it's a red cloak.
The Free People dress again, this time with a coat I wore it with this fall but my regular tall boots. I don't know why I had never thought to pair tall boots with it before, I like the lines of the dress better with tall boots and feel like most ankle boots look awkward but that might also be because the silhoutte of ankle boots feel a little boring and slightly dated now? Tall boots have been a pretty serious trend on all of the runway shows and the tall boots/midi dress 70s thing has been going pretty serious for a while so that's probably causeing the shift in how I veiw this dress.
Not a lot to say, just trying to wear things that have been sitting at the back of the closet and trying new things out.
