SWAP in action ...




I apologise for the poor mirror photograph, but I got a little excited as this is the first time I've worn two of my SWAP items together! I've worn a few tops with other bottoms from my wardrobe and the denim skirt I've worn with almost everything else in my wardrobe, but I've never put two things together before. I absolutely love the skirt and I'm pleased I ditched the A line and swapped it for this one. The fabric is gorgeous to wear, particularly as I lined it with cotton batiste, instead of bemsilk or something like that. The only thing is that this ''spring tweed" may be suitable for spring in some parts of the world, but for autumn in the subtropics, it's way too hot! On top of that, the top is linen and I won't be making anything in linen for warm weather wear ever again! It's beautiful fabric, but I've had sweat running down my back all day. And that's in a fully air-conditioned building. Nonetheless, I still love this outfit.

It looks soooo cute. Wear it in HIGHLY air conditioned locations and in the cooler times in the evening.
