Styling a floral maxi skirt...

If there's one thing you can count on, it's the fact that summer will be a bit of a washout. Now I prefer gloomier weather as I am always too warm but I know that I am in the minority here! 😉 Maxi skirts will always be my summer clothing of choice and this floral skirt from Topshop is a fun addition to my wardrobe. I thought pairing it with a cropped jumper would be conceding to Autumn too early so I opted for this orange silk blouse instead. I don't want to wish my life away but I can't wait for the cooler months and I imagine this skirt will get a lot of wear layered up with some cosy tights and boots!

Top: French Connection, skirt: Topshop, tights: Accessorize, shoes: River Island
My hair does not do well with rain (hello frizz!) but this Bumble and Bumble styling creme has been helping me to stave off the worst of it. I have been using it for a while now but haven't posted about it much but can thoroughly recommend it if you have wavy, frizz-prone hair like me!


I wasn't sure what to do with the extra length of the blouse but I think knotting it like this looks pretty neat. Fifth Avenue is the latest addition to my Essie collection and it is a lovely coral red. I'm not very good at painting my own nails but I did feel pretty darned glam in this shade! 💅


The slits in this skirt come up pretty high (I had to resist the urge to pull an Angelina Jolie!) but these chunky block heels (hopefully!) helped to tone down the revealing nature. I may try it with a cream top and trainers next, how lush would these be?! 


How would you tone this skirt down? Are you counting down to Autumn like me?
