Hug me tight

I have been seeing midi skirts around for a very long time but to be honest, I am afraid to wear any kind of skirts or dresses in general because I am quite conscious about my bottom half. Plus I have a feeling that midi skirts “chop off” your legs considerably due to the awkward length, so I have just been sitting admiring those with amazing legs who can pull it off.

However, lately I have been trying to be more adventurous with my fashion choices, and between all the skirt lengths, I think I am most comfortable with midi, specifically the figure hugging midi skirt. I think it is the most flattering of all. I looked around for inspiration and of course, the first place (or rather person) I looked at is Miranda Kerr, one of my biggest style idols.

I love how she wears both plain and textured or printed midi skirts so elegantly and effortlessly. These will be my go-to pairings when I do my internship during the summer, very professional and stylish. A true no-brainer.

However, I don’t want to and don’t have that many occasions to be so dressed up, so I looked for more casual ways to pair the hugging midi skirt:

Above are two pairings that I definitely want to try to wear during my vacation. Very chic and casual.

I have already got myself a stretchy navy midi skirt from Boohoo. I figured it’s better to start with basic and simple pieces. Once I get comfortable with it, I will move on to more adventurous pieces.

Navy midi skirt from Boohoo. They also have an amazing selection of midi skirts in various colours and patterns. I actually regret that I didn’t get more colours. Still, I can’t wait to try pairings with this skirt.

Thanks for reading!

The grey sweatshirt

While looking for some muse for a new blog post, I came across this Outfit Inspiration from Elle with the main item being the grey sweat shirt (below).

I have a love/hate feeling when something I wear everyday like the grey sweatshirt suddenly becomes trendy. On one hand I am flattered, on the other hand I feel drowned out in the crowd when so many people are suddenly sporting the same outfit as me. Therefore I am all for details to differentiate an outfit.

For that reason, I love this grey sweater with pleather details on the neck and at the sides. I wear it very often, almost every week during the cold months. Today I paired it with a skirt and brogues instead of just a pair of jeans like I normally would.

The photos were taken in York. It was a chilly and windy day. So sorry for the wrinkly skirt but I am packing up my things to go back home for holiday next week so I don’ have many choices right now.

Have a nice day and see you!

Spring in Durham

Today was a beautiful sunny Saturday, so I went for a walking trail around Durham. I also wanted to bring my DIY pearl embellished denim jacket out for a run. Even though I was wearing a backpack with the straps constantly rubbing on the pearls, none dropped out and all seem to still be strongly attached to the jacket *thumbs up*.

We took a walk to the Cathedral, and then stopped for lunch at InShanghai. A buffet lunch was the perfect meal to have after a long walk. I chucked up a lot of their delicious salad.

After the meal we took a walk along the river. I’ve never walked this way before and it was such a beautiful spring path to stroll along on a beautiful Saturday like this one.

Hope you too are having a wonderful spring/summer.
