Longer Lengths & Wardrobe Evolutions
This was an outfit I threw together for a family meal when I was back home. I’ve found recently that I’m getting older I’m getting more interested with playing with length in my outfits. A few years ago a short skirt was my statement go-to when dressing up, but I’m really loving embracing the longer lengths now!
Since originally throwing this outfit together, it has fast become a firm favourite dressy outfit. The uneven hem of the gorgeous Corvus Corone skirt gives it some slight Morticia vibes – though without it trailing on the floor as hers did (much more practical for everyday life!)
Have you guys found that your style/favoured pieces have changed as you’ve grown up? (I mean aside from the obvious post-blunder years transformation/glow up haha… I definitely had some shocking outfit about 10 years ago)
Layering the drapey cardigan over the ‘tattered’-looking skirt was an inspiration that came from the wonderful Alice. She’s my go-to inspiration for all things draped, layered & witchy!
Also these shots were my first time using my new camera – the colour profile needed some adjusting which I didn’t realise until afterwards so the colours ay seem a bit off here… But normal picture colour shall resume shortly!
Thanks so much for stopping by to read my ramblings, as always – it means so much to me! Take care and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week 🙂

Love your outfit! I also recently discovered that I am feeling fine with wearing also longer skirts. I used to really love mini skirts, but I am starting to feel “wrong” in them. It’s kind of weird 😀

This lace dress is so dreamy, and I seriously love the lip color you’re wearing! I’m gonna have to try Kat von D lip colors.
You look amazing, I love everything about this! Need that skirt in my life <3
Lovely post! I’ve found myself buying more and more loose cropped trousers now and less short skirts! I wore high-waisted a-line skirts all the time for years and years but I actually ended up selling all of them to fund my travels, so I need to stock up on them again as they are still a must in my wardrobe!
