The long and short of it…

Trench: £75, Oasis. Jumper: & Other Stories. Sunglasses: Asos (buy similar here). Leather skirt: £55, Asos . Bag: Topshop. Trainers: £66.99, Adidas at Office

There’s a reason they say opposites attract…a sparkly skirt with a tee, a long coat with a mini skirt – my new Asos mini skirt finally got its first outing this Bank holiday weekend with a longline duster trench. It’s a much easier way to go barelegged until it warms up a bit.

This Oasis coat is a great affordable version of my Gestuz duster coat – the khaki looks great with denim, I’ll be wearing mine later on in the season with skinny white jeans.

I’ve got a feeling my new leather mini skirt is going to become my new best friend – it will replace my old H&M leather skater skirt which feels a bit too ‘girly’ now. A leather mini needn’t look slutty – wear it with flats and an oversized knit and it can be everyday (and at £55, it’s one of the cheapest real leather ones I’ve found).

Oh, and I wear hoops now. That’s just my thing….I intend not to take them off until summer is over.

    1. Hi Amy – oh no, they were in my January Sales post – they sold out quite quickly I think – such a good buy – a few people emailed me about them too! I've been sleeping really well lately (touch wood!) – I've been exercising a lot more too which has helped clear my mind xx
