The Unexpected Matching Combo For Spring


A matchy-matchy set is always a winner for the summer-time, but I found the perfect -unexpected- matching set in my wardrobe for spring. I’ve had both this skirt and jacket for quite a while but I bought them separately, on different shopping trips and I never really thought about the fact that I’d picked out matching pieces. The other day when I was planning outfits for my blog shoots, it occurred to me that these two would make a really cute set, and because the jacket has a shearling lining it’s ideal for the cool but sunny spring days.

Both pieces are from Topshop and I highly recommend both. I love Topshop for skirts because they really cater for smaller sizes. I’ve found that some shops like Select – even though they’ve started to do a size 6 now – make their skirts and dresses quite big. This skirt, however, is the perfect fit and I believe, just like the jacket, it comes in a ┬ávariety of denim washes. Apparently I’m drawn to the washed black look…
