Style | The Maxi Skirt …

I was looking through my wardrobe the other day and noted there are several staples that I am missing.

A black maxi skirt for one; something I can just throw on.  Black would be ideal as it goes with most things, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be black. I have loads of jumpers and pretty little tops that are crying out to be worn with something other than my jeans.

I’m not feeling my jeans at the moment and its not because I ate too much over Christmas either. As regular readers will be aware I did a sponsored ‘No cake, chocolate or mince pies’ for the whole duration of December. I swear I’m the only person who actually lost weight over the Christmas holidays and is officially sick of the sight of bananas…. I  raised £500 for The Eve Appeal. Win win.

So back to Maxi skirts I’ve been having a quick ganzy , in-between drinking copious amounts of coffee and trying to make sense of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ .

Introducing … Izabel London

“I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,

From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,

I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,

But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl,

It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child,

It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while

She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand…

I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.” Maggie Stiefvater

Hasn’t it been a glorious week… and about blooming time I hear you all cry! I love it when the sun makes an appearance, it generally makes for a happier place.

Rather than grunt as people walk past you, they actually smile. Big toothy, happy with the world  smiles.

To be able to leave the house without your jacket on and feel the warmth on your skin rather than wetness and the cold is fabulous. Hello Vitamin D !!

To sit in the garden and have breakfast alfresco is maybe one of my favourite things to do.

Coffee alfresco

Cocktails alfresco … you get my drift!

The little things.

Regular readers of the blog will know I adore a cheeky little neck scarf.

So that’s how Tracey met ‘Jungle Silk Scarf’ it’s everything I look for in a scarf. A bright, colourful little square of silk beauty.

“One Is Never Over-Dressed OR Understated With A Little Black Dress” Karl Lagerfeld

I didn’t plan on buying anything, honestly I didn’t. I’ve been in a fashion rut just a lately.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve put a little weight on recently and I feel like everything looks blahhh on me or it’s the weather.

Maybe it’s a combination of both.

Anyway I’m on a diet, I’ve started a new fitness regime that involves lots of walking and it’s getting warmer.

Oh and I bought a little black dress from River Island. Continue reading
