Hold the ketchup

I’ll just take the mustard thank you.  Still love this skirt which I got on sale a while back and although I can’t find any similar for you right now I know there are bound to be plenty come 6 months time as apparently curry yellow is coming back (curry does have a habit of repeating no?).

Thanks so much to Chris for sharing these shots he snapped of me after my blogger talk at uni last week.  Even though I’ve taken sooo many photos for the blog over the last 18 months it still feels pretty awkward when anyone other than the husband shoots me.  Also there’s the issue of what you do with your spare hand when Mr K’s not there.  But as is evidenced in these shots you can see I got round it with – a fun pony tail grab, a double handed bag grab and, my favourite, some finger snapping.  Smooth.  Anyway, in spite of me, the shots turned out great.  I was going for fashion blogger slash professional(ish) because I was at the uni.  I hope you like the look.

    I just don’t have the confidence to stand in front of a camera, my toes curl thinking about it.
    I love the cheeriness of mustard in winter, we need all the pick me ups we can find.

      I’ll second that – it’s like a little bit of sunshine swishing round my legs 🙂

    You look stunning! Love your mustard skirt 🙂 I know exactly what you mean, I am so used to AF shooting me and having Oliver- our dog- around.

    Beautiful skirt! I really like your studded boots too 🙂

    Lovely poses in the photos as well, you didn’t have to worry 🙂 I do the same pose every day as I wouldn’t know what else to do otherwise, haha!

      thank you – even though the sun is shining it’s still mighty cold so the more layers the better!

      It’s a favourite of mine because of the colour and it moves really well too

    Loving the mustard skirt – thought I’d found a egm yesterday, saw some See by Chloe trousers in TK Maxx in this colour….but alas..too small *sniff*. Love this look!

      Oh no such a shame – worth going back to check again anoter day though. When I got my Chloe coat from there they didn’t have my size the first time and when I went back a week later another one in my size had miraculously appeared!
