About Me

My photo
I am 21, I live in London, I love clothes and I'm a bit of a slave to fashion. My friends know of my addiction to the latest trends and often ask me for my advice which I am more than happy to give(!) I also have a secret habit of styling people that I see on my travels, reinventing an improved style for them in my mind! I've been following a few fashion blogs but haven't really found what i've been looking for, so i've decided to create my own to share my ideas of style with anyone who is interested! I am a working girl on a tight budget (a healthy size 10) and clothes have to come at a price I can afford. I am hoping to show that it is possible to keep up with the trends with buys from the high street. So, I will be posting things that I would want to see in a blog. I hope you like it! I'd appreciate constructive comments. xx

Mid-Summer Maxi

One of the most wanted items this season is the maxi skirt, the perfect wear this summer, light and breezy you can barely feel it on your skin! There are millions to choose from in different styles and colours. Although the maxi skirt has been an ongoing trend for the past couple of seasons now - this season its all about vibrant colours - you will definitely stand out from the crowd if you get creative with colour. 

To get straight to the top of this seasons fashion trend go for a sheer maxi, you do not necessarily have to show off your underwear if it is out of your comfort zone, there are semi sheer fabrics available that leave a bit more to the imagination haha. A lot of the sheer maxis have an inbuilt smaller skirt underneath but if not simply add one yourself. Team with a blouse or vest top/tshirt for summer but for the more breezy nights pair with an oversized sweater. I would go for wedge shoes - they seem to look good with anything but particularly maxi skirts.

They are utterly romantic and feminine regardless of the occasion - wear them at the beach, in the park, at festivals or cocktail parties.
