How I Style: The Full Skirt #2

This is my favourite of the two 'How I Style' posts this week - I just love all the colours together. 

Tan sandals go with almost anything - and my bag is just the right shade of red to pull the look together. 

My top is cropped, but just enough to show a little skin!

How I Style: The Full Skirt #1

On Monday I decided to give outdoor photography a go. I picked the wrong time of day, as the sun was far too  harsh, but I really like the outcome of my photographs! I'm going to start taking my outfit photographs outside as much as I can now. What do you think? Do you prefer these outdoor snaps?

Back to the outfit. You may have already seen this skirt in my last post, and in an Instagram post, too. As I explained in my last post, it's actually a smock dress which have poppers along the waistline so you can wear it both as a dress and as a crop top and skirt  combo. I love the bug print on this skirt so much, it's quickly become one of my favourite skirts!

In this outfit I decided to have a play with prints and clashed the bug print with a striped tee. The tee also has embroidered daises all over, which adds another feminine edge.

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #41

On Monday I was messing around with a smock dress I've had for a while, as the waistline has pop stud fastening so you wear it as a crop top and skirt combo, as well as a dress. When I unpopped the waistband though, it sat on my hips, which just wasn't flattering on me. On Monday I discovered it had buttons at each side seam so it will fit your waist. Since then it has quickly become one of my favourite skirts! 

I had this top which is almost an exact match for one of the colours in the skirt, and I think it looks perfect together.

Top 3 MAC Red Lipsticks

Red lipstick is a classic right? I remember when the only lipsticks I owned were one nudey colour and red. That was it. Hard to believe right? A million lipsticks later, and I have three reds that are my staple, go to's fo when I want a classic red lip. 

All of these lipsticks are from MAC, because they do a red lippie the best, in my opinion anyway...

Monday Wishlist #23

1. River Island Abstract Check Waterfall Jacket: I don't know why, but I have a thing for jackets. I have quite a collection already, but there's always room for a few more, right? I love the abstract check print, and the flash of yellow. A great jacket to throw over jeans and a tee to liven up your outfit. 

2. Topshop Petite Wrap Jersey Playsuit: This grey jersey playsuit would be a great wardrobe staple. Wear now with some sandals, or with opaque tights, boots and a leather jacket in the autumn. 

3. River Island Black Croc Zip Front Platform Shoes: These shoes are absolute beauties! I love how they are a cut out boot/sandal hybrid. The chunky heel and platform means they will be fairly comfortable, too. Need them in my life! 

4. New Look Black Ribbed Trim Sleeveless Dress: I like the idea of sports luxe, but don't really come across much sporty clothing that I actually like. This dress would be great to wear with a pair of white converse for a relaxed weekend look, and then simply sway out your converse for a pair of high heels and there's your Saturday night outfit sorted.

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #40

On Monday I fancied wearing my tan fedora, although I didn't end up wearing it out of the house. For some reason it just doesn't sit right on me. I think my hair needs to be longer to pull it off. We'll see in a few months! I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a textured vest top, my ripped boyfriend jeans and a pair of tan sandals. The perfect casual summer outfit.
