It's all about the midi

You can't beat a skirt in the summertime can you? And heaven forbid you'd ever avoid a floral number!  Florals go hand in hand with summer with often many references rolling into autumn too.  I couldn't resist this gorgeous skirt when I spotted it in London when I was heading for afternoon tea at One Aldwych it had to be mine! 
I was rather skeptical about midi length skirts as if you're short, (like me) it can feel as if you look stumpy - however I think this totally proves that theory wrong!
I've played it a bit safe with a simple black vest as the skirt is rather dramatic with print, it keeps the whole look quite effortless.  If you invest in a midi length skirt  and add a plain tshirt or vest, then just tuck it into the top of the skirt to create a smaller waist.  We are love looking smaller!
The necklace I've added is pink in colour simply to stop the look being just black and yellow.  Personally I think adding a bold necklace of some sort to such a plain top, will really bring the look to life and ultimately seperate you from playing it too safe but without looking ridiculous.

    1. Thanks for your reply Vicky :) xx

  2. That's a beautiful skirt! And I love all the accessories! That's my concern with midi skirts, too. I'm on the short side so midi skirts would make me look even shorter. I think it's great that you chose to wear pointed shoes. Even though they're flat, the pointed tips elongate your frame! Gorgeous!
