Where did the weekend go? I think I had one of those weekends where you plan so much into your days that the weekend is gone in the blink of on eye. Needless to say I am already counting down the days till I get to see my bed again next weekend.

However, in between the Shoreditch camper van partying and the sunny hours spent in Brighton, I did manage to take a few blog pictures. I picked up these floral beauties from Topshop, they are so comfy and lightweight that they are perfect for the summer heat. I then paired it with my crochet top because to be honest, who doesn't love crochet? Then to top it all off the piece de resistance, my bargain Primark heeled sandals. The perfect outfit for a chilled Sunday afternoon...

MinkPink Maxi Magic

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?

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!?
