Mum on the Run – Day 1: Spring work wear – a striped skirt and wedges

The weather forecast is fairly good this week and so I am going to do five days of spring work wear. 

There are a lot of stripes around this season and so I have gone for a pink, cream and brown skirt with stripes of varying widths.  I have put it with a mink coloured silk cowl neck top and a pinky camisole layered underneath.  I am also using my pink bag and have worn some Jigsaw wedges.

The silhouette of this outfit is heading towards the 1950’s – great for pear shaped ladies as the cowl neck adds volume to the bust, the fitted skirt and top define the waist and the volume in the skirt disguises wider hips. A belt would add further definition at the waist if desired. The wedges could be swapped for a peep toe shoe which would give it more of a 1950’s feel.
