Bouclé & Big Ben

Wearing: Next tweed mini skirt, H&M black jumper, Jones leather brogues

I’ve never not liked something made from bouclé. My default, throw-it-on outfit is an ASOS tweed dress – even though I bought it last winter I still wear at least fortnightly – so when the existence of this perfect, perfect skirt came to my attention I traipsed round 4 stores to find it in my size. Love never was easy was it?

I couldn’t resist pairing it with some form of pearls but my favourite brogues add the necessary androgynous touch and salt-sprayed hair stops the whole look from being too groomed. I might like bouclé but I’ll never be the Park Avenue princess type! Saying that I also got the matching jacket and I’m exciting about wearing my first little skirt suit – maybe I’m becoming a polished girly-girl after all?!

    I love that skirt! looks like it would go with everything. I usually associate boucle with posh chanel suits but that skirt could blend into any style
