How To Style: Red Maxi Skirt

I was in two minds about a coloured maxi. I liked the look of this red maxi skirt and this is how I have styled it today. I like the top (Miss Selfridge) and the maxi skirt (River Island) but I probably won’t be wearing them together again because it’s got the whole Maid Marion vibe going on here!!

I love River Island maxi skirts, and I also have it in black as seen in this post. I especially like this burgandy/cranberry one which is a key colour this A/W. Will be wearing this maxi dress with tights and these Miss Selfridge boots this winter, instead of those wedges.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll be travelling to London. We’re having ourselves a little road trip! We decided to drive down, it will take approximately five hours to get there. We’re going to do a few touristy and business things on Friday, the Look Show on Saturday and then go to the market on Sunday.

I will schedule a post for Friday but I’ve never done this before and I’ve heard it’s a bit glitchy. As I will be packing for out trip at some point tonight, tomorrow’s post will probably be a huge “What’s in my bag/wheelie case” sort of post!

I think one of the requirements on Saturday (The Look Show) is to tweet throughout the day for #LookShowWSC and keep people posted, which I will definitely do. Usually, I try not to tweet too much so not to annoy people and clog up their timeline with my updates. Anyway, please feel free to follow me if you want updates on the show this Saturday.

    Have an amazing time blogging the Look Show. I am so jealous because I entered and didn't make it, but you so deserve to be there. And I'm glad I found your blog as a result of entering!!

    I really love the way you lay out your photographs on your blog. It's really different! In fact I don't know how to do 2 photos side by side on blogger at all. I just like the way you do whole body and accessories and so forth and your pictures are really sharp. Plus you have cool clothes. πŸ™‚
