Jumper: H&M//Skirt: Monki//Shoes: Topshop//Ring: H&M

I happened upon this skirt some time ago in Monki and couldn't leave it behind- the print just called out to me.. but once home I'm having difficulty styling it for the cold weather, and this was the only plainish jumper I could think to pair it with.

My three day weekend went by too fast yet again, but I did enjoy a decent burger at Meat Liquor, watched three of four films (including Blue Valentine for the first time- totally didn't realise how depressing it was going to be. Thank goodness Mrs Doubtfire was on for some light relief after), did lots of food shopping and had an amazing roast yesterday, thanks to Michel Roux Jr for a tasty recipe. I love that man.

  1. I watched Blue Valentine the other week - mainly for the GOD that is Ryan Gosling - I enjoyed it, but also found it so depressing!
    Gorgeous skirt, the print is lovely. I always find things like that difficult to style, you've done a good job. I need to get more plain tops etc in my wardrobe, too many printed skirts etc and not enough to pair them with! xx

  2. Oh the title of this post - my very favourite film! :-)

    The pattern on the skirt is gorgeous, would look lovely with something dainty and broderie angalise up top in the summer

  5. I haven't seen Blue Valentine and I'm now I'm not sure if I want to... depressing films and I don't get along well. I love your skirt, the print is amazing.

  7. yeah blue valentine is such a whimsical name, gives no indication to how awful you will feel after you watch it - it's so heartbreaking!
    love this skirt and adore that ring. I have never been to a monki store but like their online shop, is the quality of clothes ok?

  13. All my favorite colors are in that skirt! What a gorgeous print and you've perfectly styled it for winter I'd say! I'm glad you mentioned Blue Valentine - the hubs and I almost watch it on Netflix the other week - but then found something else and glad we did. I'm really not a fan of depressing movies like that.

  43. Haha I felt the same after watching Blue Valentine! I should have guessed it'd be a downer when I saw the title though haha. Michelle Williams was just amazing in it though wasn't she? Pretty skirt! xxx
