Stripes meet Messrs Dolce and Gabanna

Now as you can see i had a Dolce moment this season - i loved it and it was my go to for the summer.  
This skirt has had a few outings day and night and is surprisingly very versatile not to mention timeless.

Now i am going to wax lyrical about the joys of blogging!! 

 I would have thought the hat and top were too too much, matchy matchy but they work - 
i would not have tried this before - so very chuffed on that score.  I also would have sworn i looked 
silly with hat and glasses and there you go i dont!  
I try new things because i see so many others pushing their style boundaries and because my own confidence and 'eye' have grown.  

As for crossing the road - I can see why the bloggy uber girls do it (and i have now copied it!) - 
soo easy to get a shot.  Must have looked like a right twit crisscrossing one road, flowers in hand,
but hey being a twit is not an entirely new experience for me!  

Weekends nearly here girls and all you fashion boys xx

  13. I LOVE your outfit! So chic and honestly one of the best blogger looks I've seen. I guess it helps when you're wearing actual designer clothes instead of versions of them. There's nothing like the cut of the real thing. And those flowers really make the whole thing fabulous!

I love everything about it—the skirt, the hat, the stripe top, the phenomenal shoes....the flowers. And always the icing on the fabulous fashion cupcake....the Frankster. Just dreamy!
