The midi skirt for the skeptic











Top - c/o Urban Outfitters (here)
Skirt - c/o Whistles (coming soon as part of the pre-fall collection)
Bag - Celine
Shoes - Whistles (available at ASOS here)

I always admired a full midi skirt and envied those that could pull it off incredibly (*cough* Arabella *cough*) and I definitely never thought i'd see myself in one - EVER. I'm one of those girls that tends to go for the tomboy-twist.
The lovely designers at Whistles gave me this skirt, along with a few other pieces as a gift and I think they got me completely right. From my office attire it wasn't hard to see I loved to try new things but I also had a masculine edge (which is a pretty ongoing tone throughout each Whistles collection anyway), so I was super excited and flattered when I received this as a gift and I couldn't wait to style it up, and what more perfect to pair it with than the Whistles Lena slip-ons? 
Before I started at Whistles, I did lots of product research so it would be easier for me to find my feet during my first weeks, and I immediately fell in love with these pony skin trainers, and ever since have been completely lusting for them and confessing my admiration to the shoe designer in a hope any samples would come up. Unfortunately they didn't, but they did miraculously get brought back to site for one day only as part of the sale and I tell you now, it was fate.
