What a glorious week last week was. The temperatures rose, the sun was shining, and I found myself with sore cheeks by the end of it from smiling with happiness so much. Life is so good when the sun is out, and boy did I need some sunshine. April and still experiencing winter conditions is a bit much for me. Long may this sunshine continue, but we all know we cannot rely on the british weather. It’s chops and changes it’s mind too much, and in actual fact. This weeks temperatures are due to halve themselves. Oh dear.
With this in mind, it got me thinking about easy transitional dressing. Where it can be too hot for jeans but equally a bit cold for a sleeveless dress. The Midi Skirt has become a staple in my wardrobe recently, and I would go as far as to say it is the most important investment for the spring / summer weather transition. And even then, it still holds its weight throughout summer and early autumn. A bit like clinging onto the sunshine for dear life, refusing to give in to colder weather when the sun is still trying it’s best to get through. The midi skirt is your go to.
This week I have bought and tried two new skirts, one of which has taken me way out of my comfort zone and the other, a cheap and cheerful number that has paid for itself in compliments after one wear. I had to share, as well as some other options currently on my wishlist. They are easy to wear, lightweight, affordable, and from Asos so you can order up to 10pm and still get next day delivery. See my favourites below.
The ‘cheap and cheerful’ one…
A simple khaki midi skirt with pleats which can be worn a multitude of ways. Worn here with Steve Madden Tan Leather Strap Sandals, White Racer Back Best from Next and a handmade satchel I picked up at a market in Mallorca. Later that day I switched it up with a Cream Silk Racer Top and some Nude Block Heels from ALDO. This skirt paid for itself in compliments.
The ‘out of my comfort zone’ red polka dot skirt
This beauty, was an absolute gamble. TOTALLY out of my comfort zone. Teamed with a simple cropped white tshirt from H&M and White Vans. The perfect daytime look for a bbq or Sunday lunch. I think I’d wear this with a white off the shoulder top and nude sandals for an evening look. Simple but still enough of the wow factor.
The ‘I Feel Pretty’ Pleated Skirt
This skirt caught my eye because of its colour. I really quite like a simple pink or nude item of clothing as it allows you to play about with colour for the rest of your outfit / accessories. This one would be a great one to wear with converse or vans. And equally can be dressed up with some nude heels and a black backless top.
The ‘Dress Me Up Or Dress Me Down’ Ruffle Skirt
Pink florals had a bit of a moment last summer and I have a feeling they are not going anywhere this season too. Carrying on with the pink / nude theme, this skirt adds a bit of wow with its print and needs only a simple white t-shirt and trainers to complete the look. It could be styled so many ways for the evening. In fact, if you wore it wisely, you could go from day to night by only changing your shoes. How’s that for simple dressing,
The ‘Easy To Wear Print’ Asymmetric Midi Skirt
I really love the cut of this skirt, a nice asymmetrical hem and side slit, giving the legs a bit of a flashing every now and again. I love the styling on the model, slogan tea and white plimsoles. This would be pretty much how I would style this outfit for daytime, teamed perhaps with a raffia clutch (I have my eye on a kit from Wool and the Gang where you make your own!!) and a denim jacket for ultimate laid back day time dressing.
So there you have it, my top five skirts for daytime dressing wearing trainers. A simple yet really eye catching outfit style that adds a bit of an edge to your daytime outfit.
