Inspire me

Red sheer utility shirt: Dorothy Perkins
White and Black striped pleated midi skirt: c/o F&F
White block heeled courts: c/o F&F

A email popped in my inbox a week or so ago asking me if I'd like to take part in the Inspire Me feature named "How you're wearing". When I read the challenge was focusing on midi skirts and prints, I was sold. It sounded like it was made for me no?

I opted for the gorgeous pleated midi skirt and had a little left over on my voucher so I managed to get these heels as well when I put some money towards them. Yes you have seen them before in black! They are so comfy and I wish they did them in a rainbow of colours. I don't think you can go wrong with a monochrome outfit as it always looks so classy. The best thing is you can add any colour you want to jazz it up a bit. I chose a red shirt as I love these three colours together. I have to admit this is one of my favourite recent outfits! I may flirt with trousers every now and again but I really do feel myself in a midi skirt. I feel like they just sum me up down to a tee!

I've been reading so much about pleated midi skirts being a staple for spring so was very pleased to be able to get my grubby little hands on this one. It's a perfect length and with an elasticated waist it's great to tuck a top in to - the pleats hang beautifully.

How would you have styled the midi skirt?
