This week’s Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was to wear as much that was made as close to where we live as possible.
Sure, it would have been extremely easy for me to wear a completely me-made outfit. But where’s the challenge in that? So I wore things made as close to Wellington as possible, that weren’t me-made. As a result, this blouse got it’s second-ever wearing in public.
Not that you can see some of the details very clearly – it’s pouring with rain, and night, hence the inside photos. But the shoes are purple wedges with ankle straps, the tights are black floral designed mesh, and there’s a green petticoat under that skirt.
Like all the floral? Floral skirt, floral blouse, floral tights. I’m a walking watercolour garden today.
