Playing with pastels...

Wednesday, June 02, 2010



























Top: Cocomenthe, Skirt courtesy of Matalan, waistbelt: ASOS, pumps: River Island,
Flower ring: Topshop, Apple necklace: Punkypins, Leather Clutch bag: M0851 NYC.

These photos were taken on bank holiday Monday, the weather was perfectly sunny and as Dave and I headed out to get some sushi I thought it was the right time to debut this skirt and without the need of leggings or tights made it even better.
This lovely floral printed tulip skirt was sent to me by my new sponsor Matalan, it slots in perfectly to my summer wardrobe, high waisted so I can just tuck any tee or vest into it and im good to go. Its easy and effortless two things I always look for in clothes.

Oh I also most forgot my sister Sophie finally comes home from Glasglow after finishing her degree for the summer this weekend. So expect lots of duo outfit posts and shenanigans in the coming weeks :)

  1. Lovely outfit again, at least the weather over there makes it possible to be dressed like this. IMO the belt gives this outfit an extra push.
