Red and Green

express HIGH WAIST FULL MIDI SKIRT in red

The weekend before last M‘s niece was celebrating her third birthday so we headed over to M‘s brother’s flat to wish her a happy bday. It was still nice enough outside that I didn’t have to be all bundled up (this week it has gotten so so cold!) and I had an excuse to wear my new red skirt. It’s from Express and I absolutely love it.

As for the shoes, we walked there (and if I recall correctly, we were running a bit late) so I needed something in which I could keep up. These Mel flats are one of my favorites because they really go with everything!

I also quite like that it is slightly cropped and thus complements high waisted clothing, like my new skirt. It’s a shame that it is too cold now for I would have loved to be able to continue to wear both the skirt and the jacket.
