The iconic red phone box is so quintessentially British…but I have a confession to make…I’m actually writing this in France. A Summer holiday at my Dad’s in Brittany is becoming a tradition, and this year (for a change) we have been very lucky with the weather. I am looking forward to a weekend in London when I get back though. I don’t get many opportunities to visit the capital for leisure so I like to make the most of it when I’m there. The plan is to visit the Tower of London, and maybe do a little shopping if I’m allowed!
The bold print calls for (no pun intended) a plain top, but as the neckline of this one is high I added a red beaded bib necklace.
Anyway, back to today’s outfit. I bought this midi skirt a few months ago from Chicwish, and since then I’ve seen it on quite a few other bloggers, as well as Lorraine Kelly, but I love it so I don’t care. That is the risk you run with something this distinctive. The bold print calls for (no pun intended) a plain top, but as the neckline of this one is high I added a red beaded bib necklace. A simple white, black and red colour scheme is one of my favourites and works well with this skirt. However, if you’re feeling brave I imagine a brightly coloured top would be an interesting alternative. Yellow or emerald green maybe? Food for thought next time I wear it!
What would you wear it with? Let me know in the comments!
