The inspiration Calendar called for a bright colour with white and I knew straight away what I was wearing today!

In the flesh this skirt is very bright and shiny - I LOVE it! I saw it one night when trawling eBay but it was mid calf length! I kept my eye on it and bid and got it for the great price of £1.80 (it is from Topshop). When it arrived I tried it on and it fit perfectly but the length hit me at the wrong place. I called my local dress maker and took it to her and she worked her magic, taking 3 inches off the length and making it just perfect!

Once it was altered I decided that it would be the perfect item to wear to the wedding rehearsal dinner in the Bahamas so I started to look for accessories - I already knew that a simple white vest top would be a beautiful simple look!
I spied these shoes in a local boutique window and gave in a few days later. Jelly shoes with added bling - never thought I would wear Jelly shoes again!!
I finished the look with turquoise accessories and it looked great!

However, for today I wanted to stick with just the 2 colours and I am really happy with how it has turned out! Now if the sun would just stay out from behind those clouds!!

Today's outfit is:

Silver satin skirt - Topshop via eBay
White wrap t-shirt - BlendShe @ i am.....
White half sleeve cardigan - Vila @ i am.....
Jelly shoes - Holster
Silver jewellery - Tiffany
Necklaces - Guess & Plume

Holy cow, I never would have thought those adorable shoes were jellies. I remember those as a kid, Is there a piece attaching the silver dot that is on your toes? Simple outfits can be the best sometimes. Great Choice.

OMG such a great ensemble. The skirt is to die for (what a DEAL!), and those are jelly shoes??? Oh goodness, too cute!
Love it BG!

Wow, I'd never know that it was altered. It fits and hits you in all of the right places. I love the white and grey/silver scheme.

thank you all for commenting!

The jelly shoes, it turns out, are not so good for walking home in! Ended up with sore feet!

B - the jewel on my big toe is on a clear loop that the big toe goes through!
