For most of the year, I’m a jeans and tee kinda gal. So when summer rolls around and we find ourselves in the midst of a heatwave, I swap out my straight leg jeans for a jean denim skirt. I much prefer denim skirts over shorts as I find that the latter rather unflattering on my legs, whereas skirts are a lot more forgiving on the thighs.
Whenever looking for a denim skirt, I always look for the jean style. That is, the small triangle at the bottom of the skirt. The frayed edges along the bottom are also a small detail I also look for in both my jeans and skirts.
While denim skirts are often favored for casual days out at the weekend, when paired with a smarter top, they instantly work great for evening drinks or occasion alike. Paired with some classic white mules and cat eye sunglasses, the outfit instantly gets the chic factor. I love the bell sleeves and tie details on the top, they add flare (no pun) to the outfit and look great in movement. Only thing is, they aren’t great dinner companions and you have to constantly be on the lookout for them dipping into your food or coffee!
The majority of last week was been spent indoors, behind my laptop. Brainstorming and tapping away on my keyboard with new ideas and writing articles. As much as the weather has been an absolute scorcher, I’m not one for sitting in the sun! I much prefer being sat in the shade or somewhere cool so, alas, I haven’t managed to get a tan. I’ve also been loving watching the football! I never thought the words ‘love’ and ‘football’ would ever appear in the same sentence for me, as much as I enjoy watching the sport on occasion. But I’ve got hit with world cup fever! (p.s. it’s coming home…)
Come say hi over on Instagram for more outfits and to see what I’m getting up to!
