Outfit of The Week || Denim Midi Skirt

Topshop, Mirror Selfie, How to wear a midi skirt, Selife, OOTD, SS18, Fashion,

When Savannah goes to nursery on a Friday I use that time as 'me time'. There is always stuff that needs doing like housework so that the house is clean and tidy enough for the weekend and there is never a time that the wash basket is empty however, in spite of all of that, I love making the most of the child free time and doing stuff I want to do.

There have been many times that I have just gone for a walk or read my book but my favourite thing to do is meet friends for coffee or lunch. Child free, grown up time. BLISS.

This is what I wore for a recent coffee date in town. It was a lovely spring day; not too hot or too cold and beautifully sunny. 

Both the top and skirt are from Topshop. The skirt is a recent purchase so still available but the top is old so I have found some similar items which you can shop on the links below. The shoes are also an old purchase from Warehouse which I still love to wear all these years later. They are getting a bit tatty now though sadly so I may need to look in investing in a new pair!

I think it is so important to have some time to yourself doing the stuff you love doing whatever that is. When Savannah goes to reception I will still keep Fridays as 'my' day. I will have the other four days a week to work and do the housework and weekends are for family time so it will be nice to have that time for myself. I plan on taking Savannah for a cake or milkshake after schools on a Friday too as a way of marking the start of our weekend.

What do you like to do when you're child free?

Outfit of the Week || Striped Drape Midi Dress

Topshop, OOTD, Midi Dress, ss18, Nicki Kinickie, WIWT, What im wearing, Lifestyle Blog,

I bought this dress online from Topshop at Christmas, in fact I ordered it Christmas day while chilling out in the evening with a belly of full of festive food. I had seen it previously and wanted to order it for our nephews christening in January.

This selfie is actually me trying it on to see how it looked for said occasion but because I have been wearing it again recently and I took away to Spain to wear for our main meal out on the Friday night I wanted to share it. (I didn't get a decent photo of me wearing it while away).

It looks great with boots (as I am obviously wearing it above) as well as court shoes, sandal shoes, mules and I am sure pumps would look great too. It isn't just versatile but comfy and flattering too (skims my body without clinging!). It is also loose and airy but still looks glam.

A winner in my book.

It is also STILL AVAILABLE. Hurrah!

Outfit of the Week: Sunday Lunch

OOTD, WIWT, Fbloggers, SS18, New Look, Warehouse, Nicki Kinickie

Recently my mum and step dad visited us to look after Savannah while we went out to a friends 30th birthday party. We had a lovely time being grown ups and catching up with friends over drinks, picking at food and partying.

The next day was just as lovely too as we went for Sunday dinner at a local pub. Eating yummy food and drinking delicious wine was the perfect way to finish off a brilliant weekend.

It was a gloriously sunny day which was lush and also meant I could wear a skirt and no jacket. Something of a novelty after endless rain and cold weather.

My outfit was quite simple and both of these items are old so no longer available however I have searched for similar items and left some links below of anyone likes the style. Both the skirt and top are New Look and the shoes (which are very old) are from Warehouse.

I love both of these items of clothing and continue to be massively into distressed denim. What do you think of this combo?
