Crushing on A Crushed Velvet Midi Skirt (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Do you remember me mentioning last week that i put an outfit on recently that my husband hated with a passion (he was funny about it, hes not a total knob ?) an outfit i put on so i therefore changed in to the tartan dress? Well this is in fact the outfit the outfit that he detested so. So much to the point he actually asked me “do you even know what you look like” and proceeded to take a photo on his phone to show me (Just a note here, my husband Salvatore, isn’t horrible i promise, lol! We are incredibly close and honest with each other and talk constantly, we’re a very chatty, conversational couple who shares everything and so his passing of comment on this outfit wasn’t him being horrible it was just banter that had us both rolling around the floor laughing… just thought i’d better clear that up before you all started thinking he was an ogre haha!)

I said to him that i bet him it would photograph well and that the lovely ladies of Instagram would love it.. He disagreed. 

Man oh man do i wish i’d put money on it.

Turns out it is my most liked photo to date.

With 659 likes to date i took absolute great pleasure in calling him out on it.

We both laughed so much at it and he agreed, that maybe i do actually know what i’m doing.

Oh it felt good to be right, haha!

But it does once again go to show that whats another mans trash is another mans treasure of an outfit.

This outfit for me is just amazing. Its comfy, its on trend and i felt fabulous in it, even after the banter from the husband.

So what do you think? 
Was he right or are you in my camp of ‘love this outfit’?

    I bloody love this outfit! You look amazing, it's funny seeing what men do and don't like. Funny to laugh about though!
    I also recognised those boots straight away because I've been eyeing them up in M&S and you might have convinced me…

    I think it's a super cute look, and I love the way you styled this pleated skirt. I always have a hard time with pleats.

    How could anyone NOT love this outfit? It's absolutely gorgeous and I'd certainly wear it – I have the bag so that's a start πŸ˜‰ Men are funny, they just don't get it sometimes, my husband's the same but I don't really care, if I like it I'll wear it!

    Beautiful! The colours are gorgeous. It's funny how our partners can have very different tastes at times. I just showed this post to my husband, he thinks you look nice! Xx

    You, as always, look amazing in this outfit.
    Originally I would of been in your husbands camp but you totally pull it off… your confidence, your smile, and just the fact that you can put an outfit together! You just have it.

    Keep up the good work. Let’s get another impressive outfit on Instagram and beat those likes. οΏ½οΏ½

    How can he say that! I think it s a fantastic outfit! Would love to wear it like that!

    Rachel, it really is quite fabulous and I can understand why it is your most liked on IG! I also can understand from a man's perspective why he questioned it! My husband often questions some of my outfits that turn out to be absolute hits as well! I think the men want a little more sexy and the women appreciate the quality of the clothing, the lushness, the colors, and the cutesie! aspect Not saying you are lacking sex appeal though…because I find this outfit incredible on so many levels! From a woman's perspective though. And those booties are freaking fantastic! You have completely nailed this look and I have never doubted that you know very well what you are doing when it comes to fashion!

    Sorry Salvatore, you are a lovely chap and all but you are wrong here-your wife looks FABULOUS! I adore the whole look and it suits your personality too, and gorgeous dark hair. You look stunning. What did he say when you told him how many people liked it?! x

    This is such a cute velvet skirt! The color of it looks so nice paired with your baby blue sweater. This is such a gorgeous look for the cold weather.
    Thank you for linking up this week!
