The Wrap Midi

The Wrap Midi 1 - OOTD featuring Topshop skirt

Well hello there! 

It feels like such a long time since I did a proper outfit post. I've wanted to share this look with you for a while, but it's been hard to find the time. Outfit posts are my favourite to do, but they also take the most preparation! As it is, I've had to settle for my back garden as a backdrop again, which isn't the most exciting, but needs must. Anyway, it's all about the clothes, right? And I really do love this look!

The Wrap Midi 2 - OOTD featuring Topshop skirt and River Island shoes

Over the past few months, I've had a few events to go to, and I was determined not to wear jeans to every single one of them! I've seen a few of these wrap midi skirts around recently, and fell in love with this one when I spotted it in Topshop. It doesn't seem to be available any more, but I've linked to a couple of similar options.

This is the sort of skirt I would have snapped up back in the days when I worked in an office and needed to look smart Monday to Friday. With a crisp white shirt and some nude courts, it would be the perfect corporate attire. I love the large eyelet detail and the asymmetrical hem created by the wrap element - it adds just enough interest, while still being a chic and very simple piece. The pockets are also a nice touch.

These days I work from home 99% of the time, but styled up slightly differently, this skirt formed the basis of the perfect outfit to wear to a blogging event. I had a fairly statement jacket in mind, so this simple top from Topshop was perfect. It's quite cropped, so ideally you want to pair it with a.) something high-waisted, or b.) Kendall Jenner's abs. Sadly, Kendall Jenner's abs are already taken (by Kendall), but as luck would have it, the skirt is pretty high-waisted!

On my feet, I opted for these cute little wedges from River Island. They've proved to be a very worthwhile purchase. They look great with so many different things, are comfortable to walk in - vital when you're roaming around central London all day - and I'm kind of obsessed with the lace-up detail at the back!

You might remember the jacket from this wishlist post. I loved it so much I just had to buy it! It's not the sort of thing you can just throw on with everything - not so much because of the colour, but because it's also very cropped. You either need something else cropped underneath it or else something reasonably oversized, so that the proportions don't look off. That said, I do really enjoy wearing it when I can, and I'm also seriously tempted by the baby pink version. How cute?!

I really enjoyed wearing this outfit on my last London trip. It was comfortable and practical, yet made a very welcome change from my usual uniform of "jeans and some sort of top"!
