Skirt* Motel Vintage / Blouse River Island / Hat Miss Selfridge / Sunglasses ASOS / Sandals River Island / Bag F&F Clothing (Tesco)

Gah! I got my ol' knobbly knees out for you lot! (Sorry!).

I thought I was falling out of love with floral print, but my new skirt arrived through the post last week and I couldn't wait to wear it! I don't think there's going to many more glorious days of sunshine left so I'm trying to get the most out of my summer wardrobe. In fact it has been really grey for the past week, it has been a miserable August! I'm sure you've all woken up to a beautiful sunny morning, put a dress and a pair of sandals on (pfft, leave the jacket at home! We're tough up north!) only to come home looking like a drowned rat because the weather took a turn for the worse just before rush hour!

So - anyway! About the outfit! The skirt is from Motel Vintage, the sister label of MotelRocks, and it sits quite low of the waist for me, therefore falls to knee-length, so have lifted it slightly and held it in place with a belt. Everything else you've seen a million times before so won't go in to it again, but I'm still loving my bag from F&F Clothing. Would love to know how would you wear this skirt? What else would you wear with it? I need some style ideas!

  12. Love the link in to Friends haha, I hope you're hand is better soon though, that must be a real pain for doing things. You look wonderful as always Sarah, you always look so effortlessly put together. I adore this hat on you, your curly hair and pretty Summery outfit. I'd love to know how you curl your hair into big curls like that. I think you've styled the skirt perfectly! I went Summery today with my sandals and a light kimono, luckily I didn't get caught when the rain poured but it was close! I didn't have any issues when I clicked play :) I love the look and feel of your video, I think you've already improved so much from the last one I watched :) the colour in this is so vintage-y! The woodlands is so picturesque, I'm a sucker for a forest! xx
