Stepping Out In Separates With Marks and Spencer

Y'all know I am usually very much a dresses kinda girl. But lately I am really enjoying separates. I like the mix and match quality, and I absolutely cannot resist a pleated skirt at the moment. So when I was recently asked to pick some pieces from Marks and Spencer, I decided to add some separates into the mix. I am also obsessing about luxe fabrics, and I love the juxtaposition of the faux leather with the satin. 

Graphic Print Blouse - M&S Collection (similar here)

I went for this beautiful forest green faux leather pleated skirt. I already have something really similar in black but I felt the colour gave it a seasonal update and I'm always a sucker for green.  I also think that if you're going for a good quality faux leather then it's going to give you loads of wear, so i wouldn't bother investing in leather for something that's trend led. I'd leave the investment for a staple piece like a leather biker jacket or similar.  I am wearing a size 24, as I always size up in skirts and it fits perfectly, sitting over the knee on my 5'8/9 frame. 

I chose a long sleeve satin shirt in mustard with a green graphic print (it is sold out online, but you can find similar here, and I also recently saw they still had stock in my local M&S Croydon, so it's worth having a look in store if you love it as much as I do). Satin is one of those things that can look a bit cheap if it's too shiny, too thin, or done wrong, but this shirt is done so right. It is such a sophisticated look, and is the perfect piece to take from the office to drinks afterwards. I think all I'd do is add some bigger earrings and undo a button! 

I decided to accessorise with leopard print, because a) I always love it, b) it's so hot right now, an c) as far as I am concerned it's a neutral that goes with everything. I paired the look with a leopard clutch I bought last year, and some gorgeous leopard heels from Evans that are as stylish as they are comfy!
