Prolong the Summer Series- Maxi Skirt Saver

26 Aug

If you read the last blog you would have read the start of the ‘Prolong the Summer Series’. This campaign is my basic attempt at persuading people to not just fall back into routine at the end of August just because autumn is coming. When in fact this is our last chance to go summer crazy. 

The Maxi Skirt Saver- 

Well, despite what I just said I also think people should save their money because when autumn does get here you’re going to need to buy a whole new wardrobe. My advice for this time of the year, is to wear what you already have, basically stop buying summer clothes. However, with the Maxi Skirt it can be a summery outfit but what is even better you can also wear it in autumn. Can’t see how? Let me show you how.

This gorgeous maxi skirt found on the ASOS website is brilliant. White is the perfect colour for summer, because it is so light and if it is sunny then the sun reflects, which gives off the most incredible glowing effect. A natural tan would take this to another level. Although I advise you to not buy any new clothes, this skirt is currently £20 on ASOS.com

To get the autumn look pair the skirt with much darker colours.  Or you could choice a darker coloured skirt and pair it with lighter colours; like white, for summer.

The Pleated Maxi Skirt is from Missguided.co.uk and is currently being sold for £21.99.

This Maxi Skirt Saver idea is a really good way to save money but also have an outfit for both summer and autumn. I love these skirts because they don’t necessarily need to be for tall people, with a pair of heels anyone could wear it, and it immediately elongates you and makes you look taller. Also, those of you like me, who are a little busty; this flowy skirt idea balances out your shape.

Keep with the summer guys 🙂

Prolong the Summer Series- Aztec Galore

24 Aug

As we can seethe summer is slowly drawing to a close. Those long, hot summer days that we cherish so much are disappearing.  At this point most people start to fall back into their usual routine; work, eat and sleep. But, with me, I feel like at this time of the year it’s about prolonging the summer. Making the most of it.

By this I mean rush it. Go to and throw a party every day. Wear every single summer outfit you have in your wardrobe. Wear sunglasses when it’s not that sunny – just because you can.

You may be wondering, why this is so important I decided to blog about it. Well, it’s because I spend my entire year listening to people bitch about the weather and their enormously heavy work load. Then i watch in amazement when it comes to summer and they don’t take full advantage of it. Particularly, with their wardrobe; I know some of you out there have still been wearing tights with your shorts. Seriously, all it takes is a bit of ‘Veet’! But before I get carried away…

Today’s outfit from the ‘Prolong the Summer Series’ is called Aztec Galore.

How does Aztec, prolong the summer? With, those bright colours and fun patterns. Aztec screams fun summer freedom. So wear it to a beach or festival. Aztec shorts and tops are where it is at this summer. Everyone is doing the festival look, as it is incredibly fun and filled with musical influences.

My shorts were from New Look, and were paired with a loose plain black top, I chose this top because I didn’t want to overdo the outfit and I wanted to make sure the shorts popped out. Add big sunglasses and a heavy cardigan for the perfect outfit.

Although, New Look is probably cheaper you can get this from Top Shop. Topshop Oversized Crochet Cardigan, Aztec Print Shorts, Rope And Metal Sandals, Fringe Bag And Round Sunglasses

Fashion is Freedom.
