Khaki A line Skirt and a Side of Awkwardness

 Is it ok to profess love for your own outfit? I mean, I'm British, so we don't tend to wax lyrical about oneself, it's like when someone compliments you, the natural reaction is 'oh this old thing, oh it's nothing'.
Well, stepping out of my very utterly British ways i'm going out on a limb to say I really like my outfit.
Yep, i just really like this combination.

Speaking of being a completely awkward Brit i have further terrible proof.
Yesterday i went on a rare date with Salvatore (that's the hubby btw), to the cinema.
We got our tickets and headed over for the obligatory nachos.
The young lad behind the counter served me, handed my nachos and said 'Enjoy your film'
To which I responded 'Thanks, you too!'
I mean c'mon...!  What an absolute plonker. I looked like i was on day relsease and my poor husband just scooted me on as if he were my poor carer.
I am honestly so socially awkward I actually embarrass myself.
The poor lad had the courtesy to laugh, but i nearly dropped my nachos as i was in stitches at my own stupid ways.

So if we ever meet, which would be epic by the way, be prepared for a socially awkward but kind hearted complete an utter plonker.


Anyway back to the khaki obsession. Its at the point where i loved this skirt so much that, even though it is completely sold out in my size, i bought the next size up.
Stupid? Yehhh.
But, it sits a little lower now which is mostly better and besides, i can always get it taken in..somehow.
I also managed to pull out my fluffy black gilet from hibernation too, which honestly, i forgot how much i loved.
Its perfect for this mild weather we've been having, and for those days when you're just in the car or popping to the shops, like me yesterday.
Paired together and i just felt like i'd hit the outfit jackpot for the day
Pat on the back for my awkward self.

  4. Oh, I do love this outfit <3 I think it's the skirt that absolutely makes it, or maybe it's the textures. I'm very socially awkward do, which doesn't bode well working as a supply teacher! But, oh well, at least we can laugh it off! xx

    1. Indeed, laughing it off is the only thing i can do. I nearly dropped my nachos i was laughing so hard. See when you're the strong silent type like salvatore, you don't get these problems. My overly polite way gets makes me look like a complete numpty half the time. Should take a leaf out of his book i reckon, haha (but i cant i just like talking too much lol!)XXX

  9. I think it's totally awesome to like one's own outfit. I dare say we profess this love more often. This is a great outfit, it looks sensational on you, and loving oneself creates confidence which is actually our very best accessory. These are my humble opinions anyway.

    Sometimes going up a size the perfect amount of slouchy slouch which I think you've got here. Super look! Super outfit. Super YOU!

    Thanks for linking up to my Style Story Rachel!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

  10. The color of this skirt is so awesome. It looks fantastic on you! I really love the earrings you're wearing here too. It's completely a-okay to love your own outfit!

    Also I've definitely done the same thing at the movie theatre before so don't feel too bad!
