Derby shoes

I always wear high heels but have recently seen many derby shoes on fashion  magazines. 
They had been matched to skirts and created beautiful outfits.
I decided for  trying.

Max Mara

I found this pair and immediately decided they had to be mine ... 

I matched them to my  asymmetric  skirt and a blue sweater with bows for a modern look.

In my opinion my modern look needed a contrasting background ...  So I chose an old and tiny shop where they sell antique pictures.
Taking photos for the blog is a notable matter, after all!! 

No necklace today but a silk scarf

( I found the old shop so cute and took many photos of it )

I didn't wear a necklace because I had chosen very big earrings. 
By the way ... these ones are a present that I gave to  myself. The reason? 
I felt happy!  Isn't it the best reason for a gift??
( I always have a good reason...sometimes I surprise by myself!  )

My other jewelry and dark red nail polish

here I am with my grey coat and Armani bag.

Tempereatures are rising Spring ( at last ) behind the corner?? 
Let's hope ...

A gift

I hardly miss the occasion to celebrate, and last Saturday wanted to find a little gift for my beloved Mr.

The perfect occasion for a walk in  the city and brighten a very cloudy and gloomy day ...

Ice Iceberg 

I was wearing brown fishnet tights  ( which, in my opinion,  go nicely with everything in winter!)

Woollen grey hat  ( the best  solution against frizz hair!!! ) and a yellow bandana matching my skirt...

I can't tell you how much I walked, but at the end I found the  scent, the one I would have loved to smell on him ...

In the evening I gave the present, received one and enjoyed a lovely time. 
Have you noticed?  To give is at least as pleasant as to receive...

I never forget to celebrate ... it fills my heart with joy! 

Happy Valentine's day ...

Talking about long skirts

Long skirts are not easy to style  for me.
Not only because  in winter they overpass the coats, 

But also because at a certain age you risk to have a too old style .

In my opinion short jumpsuits often work with long skirts and add a modern touch to the ensemble. 
( As well as a pair of  mid-leg brown boots)

As I wanted a classic look but  not  too classic, I tried a blue top with silver-coloured  polka dots 

and  a lovely bow at the back !

( crystal jewelry )

And here, the look with the skirt overpassing my coat.
An assistant at my favourite shop said that short coats are made for being overpassed ...
In any case, either you like it or not,  please, note how my outfit perfectly  matches  my dog's!! 

I swear,  it wasn't my intention...    :-)

Any other ideas about how to style a long skirt??
