What I Wore : Xmas Drinks with Friends



This time of year sees the Welshman and me busy with parties and get togethers and functions – unfortunately not usually together.  On Saturday night, we had a fab night with friends – great food, great conversation, great quantities of alcohol … you know the drill.

What I wore for Xmas drinks with friends was this fabulous Country Road maxi skirt in orange and beige, which I’ve teamed with a Country Road seam free tank in raspberry.  I just love red and orange tones together.  I’ve added a Leona Edmiston belt to define my waist.  Elastic waistbands are not kind to anyone, but especially unpleasant on ladies with tummies.

I’ve popped a little Sportsgirl jacket in peachy beige with fluttery sleeves and studded shoulder panels over the top.  I’m debuting a fabulous statement faux coral necklace in red and gold that I purchased from one of my favourite shops, Bella Emporio.  It’s been waiting for the perfect outfit and a special occasion.



Just love the orangey red and gold combination – so powerful.  Appeals to my inner Leo.  I’ve nicknamed it my Warrior Woman piece.




I’m carrying my tan leather Miu Miu tote.  Sometimes a girl just needs more stuff than you can squeeze into a clutch.  In the interests of comfort, I’m wearing my favourite Seed Femme tan leather wedge platform sandals.  A wedge heel or a flat is essential to balance the floatiness of a full maxi skirt.  Also an excellent OH&S safety precaution – I tried high heels and kept spiking the hem of the skirt, and dacking myself.  Not a good look!


Do you like to wear red and orange together?  Any issues with public dacking you’d care to share?  Or is that just me?

    I’ve never worn orange and red together but I’m not really a fan of red, looks great on you! I love fuschia and orange together 🙂 I love how the jacket looks like it is part of the beige sections on the skirt, i thought originally the jacket was down to the ground! Great look 🙂ReplyCancel

    Love that skirt! I thought that the cream side panels were actually part of your jacket, thinking it’s a longline jacket. And yeah, I think those two colours worked well because you broke them up with the black belt and the cream jacket.ReplyCancel
