I know I only posted about this skirt a few weeks ago but it's far to pretty to just leave hanging in the wardrobe right? I thought this time I'd show off how I wear it a bit more casually. If wearing a massive skirt actually counts as casual.. I wore this out for my birthday day out in London last Friday for my birthday - 26 SAY WHAT?! - for afternoon tea on a routemaster and a cracking breakfast at Caravan. It was the ideal skirt to conceal all that food I managed to scoff.

It's funny that the older I'm getting the younger I'm feeling. Is this just me? I'm not really that fussed about being 26 more the fact that I'm in shock I've reached this age. How on earth has 26 years whizzed past? I'm still as inappropriate and silly as ever and I hope this never changes. No one ever said grown ups had to be sensible. I just need to make sure I have a pair of flats in my bags when I'm wearing heels. Omph my back!

P.S can you seen my nan photobombing? She was getting bored...


  1. looking lovely, that skirt is fab. Love the bold print. I think I feel older, I like to stay in and bake now. Gemma from two years ago would be so disappointed, I'm like a granny xx

  2. Love this skirt, I just LOVE IT! What a babe, I just think this look is wonderful xx

  3. This skirt is gorgeous!

  4. What a beautiful skirt! And time sure seems to fly by as we get older. I remember being a kid wishing I was 18... then I hit 18 and I was like "what? when did this happen??? I want to be 13 again" lol
