I've decided to start a new feature on this blog, which is pretty exciting to me. Normally I simply post the outfits that I have been wearing lately, but I've decided that now when I get a new item - or rediscover something I love - I'm going to show you guys three different ways of wearing it, or just three ways I'd wear it! With the English weather being so mixed at the moment, it can only help to discover new ways to warm up or cool down a favourite piece...

Three of a kind #1 - Floral Maxi Skirt (Charity Shop)

Outfit 1 - Slinky Dress

Sheer Shirt - H&M
Shoes - Topshop
Bangle - Topshop
Hat - Accessorize
Lips - Mac

It didn't occur to me earlier in the week that I could actually wear this skirt as a dress - luckily for me, the skirt fit very well over my chest and fitted nicely. If this doesn't work for you, you can always tighten it round the back with a handy safety pin - it's a great way to get more wear out of an item, and try some new things with it. Paired with a loose, sheer white shirt, I felt the outfit was simple but had a chic, sexy edge. The undone shirt adds a bit of casual-ness to the outfit, as does the hat, should you want it! Particularly for these chilly months where it's not quite warm enough to go bare armed in a flowery dress (: I absolutely love the heels I put with the number, I don't feel like they go with very much but maybe I just need to be more daring! I felt they gave the piece a bit more of modern edge, and brought the slinky floral number right back to fashion with the clashing/pairing (whatever works for you!) of different patterns.

Outfit 2 - Warmer Wear

Tshirt - New Look
Jacket - Topshop
Necklaces - Accessorize
Hat - Topshop

This is an outfit I wore earlier in the week, when it decided to snow on me. Luckily I had my warm winter hat with me, which once I put on I found actually looked quite cool with the skirt and jacket. This way of wearing the skirt is definitely a lot edgier, but the florals still give it a girly spin. The denim jacket is perfect for the mixed weather we've been having as well, just be careful to cover up that midriff if you get stuck in the snow like I did! Although you can't see the shoes very well, I just wore my mucky black boots. I actually thought this added to the edgy-ness of the outfit, but if you're a bit cleaner (and less paint-y) than I am, any black shoes will go well with the skirt to again, give it a bit more of a modern twist. I'm still definitely feeling chunky black boots and shoes as we move into SS13, and pairing them with a girly skirt makes for a very cooooool look.

Outfit 3 - Sweet Summer 

Lace Shirt - H&M
Lace Tshirt - Topshop
Floral Headband - Handmade using H&M hair accessories
Sunglasses - Accessorize
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

This is something I sort of wish I could wear all the time - it combines my favourites of lace, creams, flowers, and pastels (sort of). If you wanted to jazz it up a bit you could wear coloured lace, but I felt with the bright flowers on the skirt this may have been too much. Layering lace always has such a beautiful finish I find, and gives the simple tops the illusion of high end designer! (personally speaking!) I initially thought perhaps all the creams may have been a bit boring, but with printed sunglasses and shiny shoes it will be a hard one to miss this Summer! This is most certainly a very girly way to wear the outfit, but if you're anything like me you'll love showing off your girly side. As you all know of my new found love for Crown and Glory, I'd definitely recommend purchasing one of their cream/pale headbands or hair bows to go with it.
