If you saw my post about my weekend in London with the Over40Collective, (my best blogging friends), you might have noticed that I wore a grey tulle skirt for our photoshoot. I’d wanted a tulle skirt for quite some time but I needed to think how to style it before I invested. I wanted it to look grown-up and elegant and not like I had raided a little girl’s dressing up box. It needed to be a true midi length and not a skirt that fell just below the knee, because I’m tall and I love wearing heels heels which means some skirts sometimes don’t reach quite as far as they should, which can make an outfit look disproportionate.
Grey is one of my favourite colours and one which is easy to team with a myriad of other colours so I’m looking forward to styling in differently over the coming weeks and actually, I might dress it down slightly too. On this occasion though, I opted for all of the sparkle with a gunmetal sequinned top and my champagne glitter shoes, (my beloved Jimmy Choo Tahitis), and a grey wrap bracelet from my online boutique, LizzyO. The grey has actually sold out, but it is available in a soft tan which is just as pretty.
I’d like to thank Catherine, Not Dressed as Lamb, who took these photographs for me. It was lovely to work with her in this way and because she has a degree in photography and of course has had thousands of pictures taken in her own outfits, she understands every aspect of getting an image to look right and it was brilliant benefitting from her professional direction.
