We’ve been experiencing beautiful and hot summer days which is a great occasion to spend the weekends in gardens and parks. One of my favourites in London is Kew Garden and I really cannot praise it enough. Especially right now. Just look at the featured picture, the amount of flowers is f*ckin’ insane. Not to mention they smell sooooo goood! Therapy for both body and soul.
I wore my new Mango skirt the first time and although it’s not a dress, it’s close enough for me. The crepe cotton fabric is great for this hot weather, ginghams and ruffles are trendy, black and whites are always classic, plus it has long waist and midi length. My only regret is that it hasn’t got pockets which is really a pet peeve of mine, I know, but if this minor issue depended on me, everything would come with pockets. Period.
I really don’t get why I’ve ditched skirts thus far though. Ok, I have to admit it’s not easy to find the right one when you’re a jeans and tee kind of girl, but it turned out not impossible. Anyway, since practicality comes first these days, a midi skirt (or dress) is the best solution for warm summer days. Not to mention I can give some break to my beloved vintage jeans (cannot wait to wear them again though, lol).
But it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t toughen up this nice skirt look a bit, so I paired it with my favourite vintage graphic tee and semi old Vagabond mules. Also, nowadays I feel lost without some red, so I got my red Balenciaga City bag with my NATO strap Daniel Wellington watch, which, by the way, also has some blue in it.
And while this styling wasn’t my first choice, I’m kind of satisfied with it, and not just because it turned out nice and comfortable, but because it means more styling options than I had in mind. And options are amazing, aren’t they?
