How to style: The statement skirt.

Last weekend it felt like summer was finally here, so after a few days filled with food, friends and sunshine I took the opportunity to put together this look and photograph it. After hoping every evening that it wouldn't be too cold, too wet or windy (#workingbloggerproblems) I leapt at the chance to finally doing an outfit post. I’m not one to make much of a statement with my outfits. I tend to wear what I like rather than wear what’s hot on the catwalk, that doesn't mean that I don’t love all of the fashion weeks because I really do. I’m really passionate about the industry but I just don’t feel like I’ve got the body shape for boho midi skirts, nude body suits and culottes, and I’m ok with that. However two weeks ago I spotted this skirt in H&M and knew right away I had to try it on, I thought it was such a versatile piece that I could wear to work or with some tasselled ankle boots at a festival. Despite its neutral colour palette it's not exactly the most demure of skirts, with the bold strips of fabric, tassels and silver thread running through, but sometimes you've just got to go for it. It’s been a while since I bought anything from H&M and I was seriously impressed. As a teenager I used to love going in and finding as many diamond/spotty prints as possible, If you've not guessed I was a bit of an emo. I loved their recent Coachella collaboration and I very nearly picked up the maxi dress from the collection but unfortunately it was just a little bit too long. So with a new found love for H&M, I picked up a few other pieces to add to my bursting wardrobe and happily hopped on a bus home.

  3. I LOVE how you've style this skirt. I often struggle with patterned skirts since I struggle to match with it.

    1. Me too, I think you can really go wrong with a plain t-shirt or vest!
