Grey Skater Dress Layered 2 Different Ways & Weekday Wear Linkup!

This little grey dress is one I frequently pass over for more 'interesting' pieces in my wardrobe at home, but I packed it as I know it goes with everything! I'm wearing it below with my striped duster but some very different outfits - spring in Scotland brought a couple of warmer days in the middle of all the freezing weather!

What I wore:

grey skater dress converse striped duster royal mile red phone boxes Edinburgh may spring | awayfromblue

striped duster with leggings grey skater dress Louis Vuitton speedy converse spring edinburgh cherry blossom

JacketKmart striped maxi cardigan
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was actually a really warm day! Not warm enough for me to go completely bare-armed (this grey skater dress has short sleeves), but warm enough to not need a scarf or thick jacket. I actually began to wonder if I made a mistake packing just scarves and no statement necklaces in my travel wardrobe! I settled with statement earrings instead, I thought the gold was a nice detail against the plain grey dress.

Casual and comfortable for a day exploring Edinburgh - walking up and down the Royal Mile, buying some souvineers, and then visiting Greyfriar's Bobby and Greyfriar's Kirkyard. It's where JK Rowling got a lot of names for Harry Potter - Tom Riddle is buried there. I got to get some photos under the cherry blossom trees I was so admiring, and felt like a proper blogger after doing so (especially as we had to stand in a line to wait for our turn under the trees!).

What I Packed: International Flight With Kids




Sharing what I packed inside the Trunki suitcases for the boys on our international flights from Australia to Europe.




What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat and Kmart striped maxi cardigan underneath
Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris
DressAsos grey skater dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've layered this striped duster under my trench coat! With the grey skater dress being short sleeved, I didn't realise how cold my arms would get even under my winter trench coat! And extra layer was needed so this striped duster was worn again, but with a big cosy scarf, completely lined trench coat and ankle boots!

I wore this out for brunch the morning of the wedding.

How You Can Wear It:

A skater dress is a wardrobe staple - and it works in any weather! It's easy to wear simply on it's own, or by adding extra colour and print with other layers like coats, dusters and scarves.

  29. I love the look of a skater dress, but for some reason don't own many. It really is such a pretty silhouette too.

    Also, I had no idea that was where J.K. Rowling got the ideas for her names. How interesting. I thought she just made them up.
