midi me

Sunday, 24 April 2011


stripey crop top: Topshop (last year)
black maxi (worn as midi): George at Asda
black heeled desert boots: Marks & Spencer
dusty purple crystal ring: H&M

That is most definitely the shortest list of items I've ever made - there's something quite special about a simple outfit, isn't there? My mum bought me this maxi skirt a few weeks ago for a measly few pounds in the sale and this is the first time I've actually worn it. Seriously floaty and flattering, it looked lovely as a maxi but with inspiration from numerous bloggers who look oh-so-fancy in their midi skirts, I decided to hoick up my skirt by rolling down the waistband. Who'd have thunk it? Rosie doing a little DIY. If you can even call it that! As MJ from Dreaming Spires said here: it definitely saves you money.

Forgetting it's Easter Sunday (Lord hath mercy!) has slightly scuppered my plans so I will now proceed to eat way too much chocolate and throw up. Bliss! Happy Easter, everybody.

  1. That's a gorgeous skirt, I think it looks good as a midi but I imagine it'd look amazing as a maxi thanks to the material :)

  16. Looks lovely on you, I'm far too short and cankled for a midi! I think I'd look like a buxom 60's housewife, and so not in a Madmen way!
