Summer Dressing With A Tank & Maxi Skirt

Summer dressing is finally possible in the UK with the warm weather we're having at last! This is one of my favourite silhouettes: a simple tank and a maxi skirt. I also get to pile on the arm candy without worrying about all the bracelets catching on gloves and sleeves (what a relief), and every year I get out my favourite strappy wedges that I've had for I-don't-know-how-long. Because of their neutral colour and surprising comfort (amazingly I can wear these out shopping), they have lasted me years and I live in hope that they will never go out of style.

We're set to have the warm weather continue in the UK for the short term at least, so I should have more summery outfits on the way - hurrah! Also on its way is a fabulous international giveaway of a designer handbag and purse worth nearly £200... look for that next weekend!

Happy weekend my lovelies and thanks for all the love <3
