I got a new skirt! It doesn’t show that well in the photos, but it’s a metallic bronze.

First wear was for lunch with my mum.

I wore it with brown stompy boots. I treated them with metallic polish so that they also look bronze. Why have brown boots when you can have bronze?

The moto jacket is a lightweight cotton. It’s an FP jacket that I’ve had for years. It has that distressed effect that FP often goes for. I like it but brown was out of fashion for so long I often thought about editing it out. I think it may have found a friend at last with the skirt.

Underneath I wore a tank top from Topshop. I got about 10 of these in different colours. I plan to wear them as a cami in winter, but they are still nice enough and the right length to wear as stand-alone tops with my skirts in warmer weather. And cotton! This is a tan one that I dyed a reddish brown. It may look seasonally confused with the boots but it works for me because it’s very wet and very humid at the moment. I need the boots for the wet walk home and the tank top for the humidity. I get sticky fast.

I’ve been using my beloved Missoni umbrella a lot, and I thought it tied in nicely with this outfit. Unfortunately it’s not the shape it once was. Sad. My husband has fixed it 3 times.
