I bought a wrap skirt (somewhat impulsively) at a pop up store near my local supermarket. It’s a Fair Trade store that sells items made by women in Nepal. Apart from it being a good cause, I’ve always liked this style of skirt. I find them quite useful for casual or beach wear in Summer. It’s made from cotton and the colours appealed. Always chasing teal!

The top is also a wrap, and also cotton. It’s about 5 years old. Love this top. High neck wrap tops are so hard to find. This Summer I overdyed it to revive the colour. I tried to nudge it in the teal direction by including lots of green in the dye mix but it’s hard to change the colour of darker items. I may have shifted the undertone a little.

The necklace is vintage 1970s (a $12 bargain from Etsy). It has stones that read alternately teal and purple in the light.

I wore this outfit to lunch with my mother. The last one of 2021. It’s 2022 now where I am.

Happy new year! Here’s hoping that 2022 is a better year for everyone.
