Yesterday afternoon I went for a lovely meal at Zizzi's with the girls and it was still 25 degrees when I left my house! I never have a clue what to wear in this weather so I opted for my new maxi skirt which I picked up from Primark yesterday. It was one of those situations where you see someone carrying it around the shop and then go on a manic hunt to find it. As you can imagine, Primark is not the easiest shop to search for something in! They only had one left in a size 8 and a size 12 and to be hones there wasn't much difference between them. I went for the size 8 as it felt like a better fit but Primark can be so up and down with their sizings. I've worn it with one of my American Apparel knitted bralettes which I own in an array of colours! I love these crops because they have a really tight fit and the straps can be altered at the back which is useful. 

I've kept my jewellery quite simple as I thought the skirt was a bit of a statement on it's own. Although for some reason you may have noticed that I've become obsessed with hoop earrings at the moment? I have no idea why but I keep wearing them every day and actually really like them! I think they look great in the Summer, although you do have to watch what you pair them with to avoid going down the 'chavvy' road. I think as long as you steer away from wearing them with an overload of other jewellery,  hoodies or trainers you will be safe!
