Breaking the Pattern

So I've kind of found my comfort zone with knee length skirts and tops. Mix it up with a print, maybe even clash it with another one. Add flats and a necklace: done! And then I come across something that kind of doesn't fit that pattern. This green Warehouse skirt is probably a tad too long on me (not hard, as I'm only 5'1" tall) - especially as I no longer wear heels and can't rely on them to give me those extra inches. I'm cheating a bit on the pic below as I'm a little bit on my tippy toes but I still think it works! Oh: and I'm pattern-free for a change!

Warehouse midi skirt, Topshop top, Stella & Dot necklace
What do you do if you have a midi skirt that you don't wear often enough because you find the length really challenging? You buy another one and try harder.  (Sorry, couldn't resist the colour. Silly, really...)
Top: Topshop
Skirt: Warehouse
Shoes: Zara
Necklace: Stella & Dot

Boden print pencil skirt and LaRedoute denim shirt
So I said before how a new season always seems to surprise me as I suddenly have to figure out my new uniform. I just can't do with deciding for ages what to wear in the morning and need to be able to throw things together quickly. Well, the colder mornings are here now and I remembered that I have a denim shirt - that goes with *everything*! Sorted! 
Denim Shirt: LaRedoute
Skirt: Boden
Shoes & necklace: Zara

Boden Mia Tunic, Marks and Spencer Boots
This dress must be one of the most easy to wear pieces I have in my wardrobe. Goes with lots of shoes and boots, add a necklace - finished. That's how I like getting dressed: no faffing about!
Tunic Dress: Boden
Boots: Marks & Spencer
Necklace: Stella & Dot

Boden print pencil skirt, &OtherStories top, Warehouse necklace
Short sleeves?! Might be the last of the summer outfits. (OK, so I cheated and wore a cardigan over it for most of the day...)
T-shirt: &OtherStories
Skirt: Boden
Shoes: Zara 
Necklace: Warehouse

Oh, and just in case you think I wore that skirt twice last week: I think it was a leftover from the week before then.
