MinkPink Maxi Magic








Vest Top - H&M
Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Sandals - Primark
Ring/Bracelet - Topshop (old)
Belt - Urban Outfitters Vintage

I have recently got back from a short holiday in Italy, visiting such beautiful places as Florence and Sienna and eating far too much pizza! But I have to say the weather has been way more impressive in London, Without a clue as to how hot the weather has actually been I unwisely went out in jeans to go shopping. This ended up being a big mistake because as the heatwave hit it's peak (30 degrees) I had the urge to loose the layers quickly and with debit card in hand I hit Urban Outfitters in search of skirt sanctuary. And unfortunately for my bank balance they didn't disappoint.

This beautiful floral MinkPink maxi-skirt, with what I like to think has Geisha inspired slits down the sides is just stunning, it's perfect for relaxing in the park or teamed with high heeled sandals (such as above) could be worn for drinks out with the girls/fella. It also allows for a nice breeze, perfect for an unexpected British heatwave.

What is your favourite go to piece for the great British sunshine?

MIDI PERFECTION






Top - H&M
Skirt - Miss Selfridge
Boots - Topshop Sale, similar here
Necklace - Topshop, similar here

I dressed quite optimistically today, it seemed that the moment I went off to get changed this morning it was sunny and then the second I stepped outside the sun disappeared and the heavens opened (oh the woes of a blogger). But thankfully I managed to get these pictures taken before I got drenched.

I guess I am a bit behind the trend on midi skirts but I have always been a bit scared that they would never suit me and I have to say when I put it on it took me a good hour to adjust. But now I love it and wished I had got on the band wagon sooner.

Was anyone a bit scared of this trend? Or am I just slightly odd!?

Little Red Riding Hood



Jacket - Ted Baked (old), Dress - AllSaints, Shoes - New Look

No your not on the wrong blog, I am in fact wearing something that isn't black and it might be even more of a shock to learn that this very colourful red number came from AllSaints who are normally famous for their grey and black collections.

I have been working for a while now and thought it was about time I treated myself to something nice, so I headed to AllSaints which is one of my favourite (wish I had more money so I could buy everything) shops. There were so many beautiful dresses but this one really seemed to make my pale skin and dark hair pop.

I just need to find the right occasion to wear it, although I think I could get away with it with some black biker boots and my leather jacket.

Hope you have all had a fab weekend :)
