Why won't you come over here? We've got a city to love

Black off the shoulder jersey top - Asos
White full diamond jacquard midi skirt - Topshop
White and black patterned heeled sandals - Primark (similar)
Red studded lips clutch - Lulu Guinness

Completely impractical but a completely necessary purchase. This white skirt stood out to me as I pursued my lunchtime browse on the New In section on the Topshop website. Lethal I tell you, lethal! Topshop seem to be on fire with their midi skirt selection at the moment. I find the rest of the shop a bit hit and miss most of the time. I feel like my style has grown up a lot more and I don't really fancy wearing skirts that barely cover my bottom or tops with wacky logos on. These shoes were yet another thing I found hidden away in my wardrobe for around a year with the tags still on. I'm working on my spending habits...

Hello Lulu Guinness! My fab blogger friends clubbed together to treat me to this clutch for my birthday. Aren't they just the best? I've lusted over a lips clutch for such a long time and am so please to finally have one to call my own. It's such a beauty! I'm feeling like a very lucky girl to have such thoughtful friends.


  1. That is so sweet of your blogger friends! Such a pretty clutch Sophie! I haven't tried the midi skirt trend yet, but I definitely want to. You are rocking the sexy off the shoulder blouse and midi skirt! Love it girl!

  2. I just adore that skirt, and I'm looking for something very similar but perhaps in a colour rather than white (I'm a bit clumsy, I am not sure it would stay white!!). It's indeed very classy and grown up, and you look amazing in it! Love the bag too, lucky girl x

  3. This outfit is stunning, you look absolutely amazing! I adore that skirt, you truly are the Queen of the midi skirt!xo

  4. Awww so pretty! Really elegant.
    Beautiful skirt and love the off the shoulder top.


  5. Oooh the skirt is gorgeous and I love how you styled it! You look beautiful!

  6. So I definetly bought a midi skirt the other week after seeing you in them. I don't look as fab as you but one can only try. And my eyes are shining at the perfect little bag! xx

  7. Gorgeous outfit. How lovely to receive the clutch - what darling friends you have!

  11. Hi Sophie. First of all I love your name. I considered naming our daughter that but my husband preferred Vivian more so we compromised. I am Ada and I found your blog somewhere via the comments. I am glad I stopped by because I loved the name.

    This Outfit is super duper cute. Girly, classy, a little retro, 100% glam. I love it. I want a big circle white skirt now to re-create this myself.

    I now welcome you to stop by my blog and hopefully support me by following. Have a Great Weekend, Ada. =)

  12. Love this whole outfit - so chic! :) x

  13. Adore this outfit Sophie!!

  14. Oh my that skirt is dreamy. And Lulu Guiness oooh you lucky thing! Have wanted one of those clutches for ages :) XX
