Sometimes on days when you have the perfect outfit to wear, it rains and can somewhat ruin your planned fashion moment. But, fortunately on these type of days I have learnt to go with the flow of things at all costs.
I have a tulle skirt that I've been wanting to wear for some time, and this was supposed to be the day to wear it, but then an unexpected wind chill rolled in. Afterward, heavy rain showers (that was not on the forecast) happened.
Suddenly, the notion of twirling in the wind on a winter’s day did not feel like a supreme idea, considering the climate. I was also feeling a bit unwell, so anything other than layered comfort wasn’t going to be on the wardrobe wearing agenda.
I am still patiently waiting to bring out that special skirt, which will likely happen for a girl’s night or date night. But, I decided to wear these faux leather trousers instead. It’s been a long time since I last wore them, and for the gloomy day that graced us all with its presence, a classic splash of a red, black, and white colour palette was the perfect pairing, in my opinion. It was simple and uncomplicated, style-wise.
And, even though this was my backup outfit, it turned out to be a rather better option in the long run for a happy hour meet up with a friend. After sifting through my accessories and notions trunk (which are thankfully re-categorised now), I added peacock feathers to my hat.
