Otherwise known as the return of the mini (remember that movie?). I didn’t want to admit it at first but the mini is back – I am a true shorts devotee and initially my reverting to the mini seemed wrong. As usual, I changed my mind. It’s a woman’s prerogative after all.
Dangerously verging into streetwalker territory (especially considering my heel choice…) but saved by sticking to ‘the rules’. Balance the short skirt with a chunky knit, long sleeve loose shirt, baggy tank with oversize scarf, etc… you get the idea. This stripe textured lemon knit from Next is a welcome addition to my closet not least because it’s already cuffed.
Things have been getting a lot simpler round this way the last week or two don’t you think? Perhaps I’m influenced by the clean lines of all the AW collections springing up all over the net. Don’t fret though, next week I’ll make a concerted effort to layer on some crazy!
Have a great weekend everyone – may the sun shine and make your world turn technicolour like it did this day (is it just me or does the background look kinda super chirpy, all kinds of bright, full of wonder FAKE?!)
You look amazing, I love the boots!
thanks lisanne – my old faithful m&s boots from last winter fell apart on me (after much wear and abuse) and I found this brand new pair on ebay for about £6 – best part was, at the time I got the original pair I was stuck between them and these ones!x
Very sweet look. Love the sunshine yellow!
couldn’t agree more about yellow – the colour of summer!x
Love the pop of yellow in the jumper, perfect for summer time – which is on the way, any minute now… xxx
I know right?! Any minute… it was here that one day this week (never to be seen again).x
Minis and boots go so well together but I guess at my age, no (LOL!) But you pulled off this outfit fabulously!
My latest blog post here:
I know what you mean, I think this is why I was so unsure to begin with – I hadn’t worn minis since my uni days a decade ago! I think w/ the rules if you want to, why not!x
I love your sweater!
thank you very much! couldn’t have come at a better time – it’s 11 degrees today… brrr.x
These pictures are great, I love that color yellow on you!
Cool heels! I love how you paired it with a summer outfit..
they are my favs, I pair them with everything, ha!x
you have the best taste in shoes!
oh thank you! I think if I had more money I would have a larger collection and they would be even better!x

Love your style and blog so much!! Really adore the colour of this sweater…so pretty and unique. Your dog is sooo adorable too :*)
thanks ally – I’ve worn it loads already!
Oh my god, you are so stunning you could never look like a streetwalker! That being said, I get the “rules” you’re going by, and it makes sense to pair somethign so “Scandalous” with something a little more demure.
Really love the way that the yellow looks with the leather skirt – a staple I totally need to add to my closet. Funny you say that about your outfits getting simpler, because I feel like mine are too! Maybe it’s the heat? Don’t know, but lately the simpler ensembles are taking the forefront.
LOVE your dog!! Ahh…dream dog – so perfect. Great blog.
maybe it is the weather, who knows! Although it’s been far from summery here…
I love your outfit!!! New post: “Glamour Chocolate gives you Asos discount codes”. Follow each other on Bloglovin and Twitter?
