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

    Nothing like some fine weather to bring out the beauties! Oh look, there's one now! Pretty and so cool, as usual.

      Thank you Amanda, so much! Though I'm not anyone's mama (that to me is a grandma – I'm not even a mum!) But I know what you mean, heehee x

    Gorgeous! This seems different from what you usually wear, which is oddly refreshing! But I do love pretty much everything you wear ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you, lovely Courtney! Funnily enough, this look is pretty much all I wear in the summer… maybe I just don't photograph these outfits as much x

    The polka dots are so pretty!! I'm quite excited about the warm weather here (rare in the Bay Area) and take every opportunity to wear something summery as well and I can't wait to see your next summery look!

      I went to SanFran a couple of years ago, Meghan (in July so it was properly summertime) – I know how it gets chilly! But I convinced you get more sunshine than we do in the UK!!! Thank you my lovely xoxo

      Hmm I'd forgotten I had the headband Barbara – I like rediscovering things I haven't worn in a while! Thank you xx

    You always look amazing. You look more Sophie-like (Howl's Moving Castle) then usual in that first photo!
