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!

    Love love love that skirt – don't think I could ever fall out of love with florals! Really like the white bag too, looks lovely and summery. I've got plenty black and brown bags, but no white ones! x

    Oh your skirt is so pretty! And I love the peter pan collar on your shirt too. I'd have been terrified to wake up with my hand not working- hope you get over your tendonitis soon! xx

    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

    This outfit is adorable and so fresh and spring-y. Even though it's summer. I love your white blouse. It's a perfect staple piece. The floral skirt is super cute too.

    OMG I love those beige sandals. I've got a similar pair from a seller called alisonsman on Asos Marketplace, but with different detailing on the straps. You should definitely check it out there.The pictures are beautiful by the way.

    LOVE this outfit! Especially the big floppy hat! I was going to get one (from another brand) but I thought I might have a little think as it's going into winter soon haha. Maybe it will work in winter, what do you think? 😉
