Little White Box Pleated Skirt

White is certainly my go-to color, and I just love how this box pleated skirt fits me. The ways to style a skirt like this are endless, and the circle shape is so playful and sweet. The reason a box pleated skirt works so well is the defined waistline and the soft pleating which give the outfit an easy and feminine feel.

A white skirt is a great summer staple that could be styled with flats or heels, bold prints, colorful tops or a bright white-on-white ensemble. You can choose between a mini or midi skirt – or even have one of each  – depending on which is more comfortable and works best for your body type. Caged heels will add a nice edge to a girly outfit, and combined with a skater mini skirt make your legs appear super long and slim. I completed this look with a pair of bold sunglasses which are one of my most favorite summer pieces.

I’m not sure if you’ll agree but I always find different hair lengths and style suited to different outfits. Since summer clothes consist of a lot of maxi co-ord sets, tropical playsuits and cute mini skirts I might leave my hair in this land of in-between for now so I can have more style options available to me. What do you think, long or short?

Life Lately

Fresh Flowers

Things have been both busy and exciting these days, so I thought I’d share with you all some of my Instagram posts and what I’ve been up to lately.

Kohls, Throw, Coffee Art

This photo was re-grammed by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s page on Instagram, which was so exciting! I seriously love this throw, it’s so cozy. I made a heart stencil out of paper for the coffee art.


A statement necklace and a hat are sure to add a wow factor to an outfit. I got so many compliments on this top which I got from Zara last year, and lo and behold I find an extact match on Choies, here.


I love getting creative and learning new things, and although calligraphy is tough I’m hoping that with practice I will get better. I would love to attend an actual live class and I think I’d learn much faster, but since there aren’t available to me right now I got this starter kit from Laura Hooper Calligraphy.

Brunch Date

One thing to always put me in a good mood is a brunch date with my honey and a really good cup of coffee!

What have you been up to these days? Xo
