Outfit Post...The Floral Skirt that looks far more Expensive than under £40


Style Theory: I wrote about my obsession with the jumper, skirt and trainer look here and today I found the perfect skirt. I will wear it now with tees, sweaters and trainers or my favourite new red Zara sock boots, in the winter I will team it with dark red knee high boots and black polonecks. 

The skirt caught my eye as I was dashing into M&S today on a mission to find a prawn sandwich in between looking at bi-fold doors and portable hobs (the glamour!) I had to divert to the changing rooms to try it on and loved it on immediately, it definitely looks far more expensive than it's £39.50 price tag...
Cashmere Jumper - Scout Cashmere
Skirt - M&S 
Boots - Zara
The skirt is fab, it is described online as a midi but on me (5ft3) it is definitely more of a maxi but hangs beautifully. I bought a 10 but I think I could have sized down to an 8 as it does come up slightly on the large side and has the added bonus of an elasticated waistband.. I love the print, it looks so much better in real life than online..promise!
M&S £39.50
The skirt has a a very dark navy navy base so I will mix it with blacks and dark reds in the winter.
Topshop £18
I also bought this tee to go with the skirt, the perfect piece to dress it down,  love the idea of wearing it with red adidas gazelles... the perfect dress down look..
Asos £75
Or these darker red Gazelles..
Office £79.99
They will add the finishing touch to a dress...as seen on The Fashion Guitar below..perfection (the skirt is D&G, stunning but completely out of my price range!!..I'll take the M&S one!)

The skirt obsession will no doubt continue, as will my need to buy those Adidas Gazelles!!

As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments. Also just to let you know I now have a new schedule for blog posts, I will publish every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, so you know when to pop back...so looking forward to my next 'school year' of blogging, I always take a little break to be with the kids over summer but by the end of August I have so many exciting new ideas building up in my head, I feel refreshed, and ready to get going with the Autumn/Winter 17 trends and great high street buys..thanks for sticking with me and reading, I appreciate it so so much, here's to a fun rest of 2017, Fran xxx
