Green And Pink Party Skirt: Making A Statement In The Snow

what-lizzy-loves-green and pink skirt-snow

I first wore this green and pink party skirt last spring and I called the blog post The Happiest Skirt In The World. Almost one year on, I still feel the same. I absolutely love it. The gorgeous colour combination, the beautiful print and the exquisite folds make it look and feel like a piece of wearable art. It cannot fail to make a statement. It’s the perfect party skirt and as it happens, both times I wore it were for 50th birthday parties.

This time it was my friend Sally’s birthday and the party was last weekend. as you can see, we still had a lot of snow here in Skipton, courtesy of The Beast From The East. However, I knew it would make the perfect backdrop. I’d been without my camera for almost three weeks, so I was desperate to get outside to photograph some outfits. There was no way the sub-zero temperatures were going to stop me!

A neat fitting top works best with such a voluminous skirt. This black scalloped tee has just the right amount of detail and is long enough to stay tucked in.

Green And Pink Party Skirt With Faux Fur Jacket

We were lucky enough to get a lift both to and from the party so I knew I didn’t need to wear a heavy coat. This faux fur cropped jacket seemed perfect. The cropped length gave a 1950s look to the silhouette, (a style era I adore).

Green And Pink Party Skirt: Statement Accessories

A skirt this dramatic needs equally strong accessories. I added a stunning multi-coloured butterfly to further increase the glamour stakes. This brooch is available from my own boutique,£9.

These green tassel earrings seemed to me to be perfect too. They’re the ones I got from Monks Cross Shopping Park when I did my Mother’s Day gift guide.

The shoes are a few seasons old from Boden. The bows caught my eye in the first place; they lend themselves to parties.

And Finally…

My skirt was from Coast last year and is called Attatea. I searched online and can’t find anywhere that still stocks this design, but you might find one on Ebay? The shoes and bag are also from previous seasons so are out of stock. The jacket, jewellery and my makeup are all current though, so I’ve put links to everything below.

And…although I’m a tough Northern girl who will do everything to get a good set of photographs, I did need my “big coat” and snow boots to walk to and from the park. Ian was his usual patient self when he took them and despite his fingers turning blue, we both think the end result was worth it. It’s not often we get snow like this and not often I wear such a fabulous skirt. We needed to make the most!
