The weekend was a rather relaxed affair – Friday night I saw My Week With Marilyn at the cinema (it was an excellent portrayal of Monroe by Michelle Williams) and on Saturday I saw the exhibition of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewels and clothes at Christies and finally took a glimpse of the massive sparkling Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Centre here in NYC.
Sunday was for pilates, brunching and blogging. I wore one of my birthday gifts, this maxi skirt from Reiss (sadly no longer available but check out the Danielle maxi and Jessica pleat maxi as close alternatives. The Jessica skirt is the same style as the green skirt I’m wearing here, with the lace effect print of the dress in my last post – howzat Blog Reader!).
It is a beautiful pleated skirt, a bold green colour unlike anything I have in my wardrobe that perfectly feeds my addiction for maxi lengths this winter. Being a new colour for me, I found it quite difficult to know what to pair it with (any suggestions welcome in the comments below, Blog Reader!) but I wore it with my white tee from Eighteenth and my Izabela shoes from Nine West (I’m not usually a fan of the mid-heel, but this seemed a good choice for a casually chic brunch.)
