Blooming Brilliant

floral skirt

I don’t usually go this girlie – full skirt plus heels

valentino red bag

floral skirt

Polo neck: Gap (similar).  Skirt: Asos.  Shoes: Steve Madden (try these or these).  Bag: Valentino (similars in red here, here and here).  Socks: Can’t remember but probably Topshop.   Note: Shopbop sale on: Code: SpringEvent

So figured I’d freeze the moment with a post now before I revert to boots. 
It took a graphic wood print to get my attention.  Normally a midi has to have something special going for me to cave e.g. it’s leather – it’s a kilt – something.   In this case – it’s the print.
Took these pics right before going out for dinner in the city and added the All Saints jacket

    This is definitely something different for you. I love how you’ve managed to style it and still make it your own. You don’t seem way too far out of your element. I really like this look.

    That skirt looks great “girlie”, but I’d love to see how else you’d style it!
