London Calling | Midi Skirt and Statement Necklace

July 22, 2016

London Calling Chicwish midi skirt Miss KG red shoes

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!

  15. Perfect outfit, absolutely perfect. From the tassles on the shirt to those lovely heels. Didn’t you sink into the grass with them? I also start moa ing to Ron when he wants to photograph me with heels on soft grounds haha.
    Have a lovely time in France and London.

      Thanks Greetje! Yes heels sinking into the grass is real bugbear of mine…but it’s the price we pay for fashion I suppose! I usually do my photos in the garden to avoid being stared at in public by people wondering what the hell I’m posing for 🙂
