I made more pumpkin spice cookies this weekend, fall may be over but I still love me some pumpkin spice cookies! Today I have rather a pumpkin spice colored ensemble to show you too, even if the flowers on this skirt are a bit more springy.
The burgundy and pastel floral pairing is actually quite difficult to style strangely, and I don't end up wearing this skirt very often despite the fact that I really love the print. This past weekend I paired it with a Vivien of Holloway slash neck top in a wonderful cinnamon brown color. I really like these tops so far but I do have a few grumbles about them: the fabric, though nice and on the thicker side, shows the seam lines of lingerie like a thin t-shirt would (which is no good for vintage style bra wearers like myself as the cups usually have a horizontal seam that shows right through even with a cami layered in between), and for tucking them in there is a bit more fabric through the waist that gets bunched to the back in favor of a smooth front. The ease through the waist does mean these tops look great untucked for a more 60's vibe, but I nearly always wear any top tucked into skirts. The slash neck is great for showing off brooches, but I had to sew the neckline closed about an inch more on either side so that it would cover my bra straps. All in all I'd say they are really nice but not perfect, and will be really great for travel days or other times when I want to keep my vintage style but be extra comfortable.
I feel like I am so behind on many of my creative projects, but I also feel like I am always saying that! Hopefully I can finish up the skirt I am in the middle of making and can show off the lovely fabric you all soon <3
