A Flower Field in Winter - The Strange Midi Skirt Combination



When you are reading this I will be on my way to Germany, to visit my parents over the holidays. We are looking forward to lots of food and family time. You'll see some pictures on Instagram. And I'll see if I can get some fashionable guest appearances again.

Onto the outfit. This combination is, I admit it, weird. But I also think that, for some reason, it works. I was sceptic at first, but heck yeah, I like this look. Even more so after seeing the pictures.

You will recognize the flower print midi skirt, which I also wore here (with the same shirt actually). To accomodate for the colder temperatures I added the boots, a thrifted sweater and super cute beanie. It's not clear in these pictures, but it actually has two pon-pon (here is a very old pic from the beginnings of my Instagram adventure)

Do you like it? Let me know!

Quando starete leggendo questo post, io sarò già in strada verso la Germania, per visitare i miei genitori durante le festività. Già mi aspetto molto cibo e tempo ben speso in famiglia. Vedrete qualche fotografia su Instagram. Vedrò se potro avere ancora qualche special guest come modella.

Arriviamo all'outfit. Questa combinazione, lo ammetto, è strana, ma penso anche che per qualche strano motivo funzioni. Ero scettica inizialmente, ma accidenti, mi piace questo look! Dopo aver visto le fotografie mi piace ancora di più.

Riconoscerete la gonna a stampa floreale, che ho indossato qui (con la stessa maglia infatti). Per adattare il look alle temperature più fredde, ho aggiunto gli stivali scamosciati, un maglioncino e una carinissima cuffietta in lana. Non è chiarissimo dalle fotografie, ma ha due pon pon (qui c'è una vecchia foto, risalente all'inizio della mia avventura su Instagram).

Che ne dite? Vi piace?

Wenn Ihr diesen Artikel lest, bin ich auf dem Weg nach Deutschland, wo ich meine Familie ueber die Festtage besuche. Uns erwarten viel Essen und Familienzeit. Mit Sicherheit werdet Ihr davon ein paar Fotos auf Instagram sehen. Werde auch mal schauen ob ich wieder einen Gastauftritt organisieren kann.

Und nun zum Outfit. Diese Kombination ist, ich gebe es zu, etwas seltsam, aber ich finde aus irgendeinem Grund funktioniert sie. Am Anfang war ich skeptisch, aber ja, mir gefaellt dieser Look! Und noch mehr nachdem ich die Fotos gesehen habe.

Den Rock erkennt Ihr vielleicht wieder, den hatte ich hier zuletzt an (uebrigens mit der gleichen Bluse). Um das ganze wintergemaess zu stylen habe ich dazu Velourstiefel, einen Pullover (Second Hand) und meine supersuesse graue Muetze angezogen. Man sieht es auf diesen Bildern leider nicht, aber die Muetze hat zwei Pon-Pon (hier ist ein altes Foto von den Anfaengen meines Instagram-Abenteuers)

Was haltet Ihr davon? Gefaellt es Euch?

    Invece della solita serie di grigi e neri, un po' di colore in inverno aiuta molto l'umore :)))

  28. Bellissima la gonna e anche a me piace molto questo abbinamento, in particolare il gioco di contrapposizione tra diversi tessuti, il pesante del maglione e quello più lieve della gonna ! Molto bello =)

  38. Omgosh. I don't even know where to start, because I love it all. I even made a beanie with two pom-poms for a friend as a Christmas gift last week! I'm thinking of making one for myself now, because it's just cute and practical. I love the floral skirt mixed with a fluffy sweater. I think I may have to follow in your footsteps because I have a big floral skirt like this that I have been clueless on how to wear. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year, Alex :)
