What I Wore: Swishy pleats and shiny sneaks

It’s Wednesday..

..so it’s what I wore

(Although technically, this is what I wore on Monday for a Patisserie Valerie date with my favourite bearded man.)

What I Wore Wednesday: Swishy pleats and shiny sneaks - Mostly Yummy Mummy Blog

Denim jacket – c/o Zalando, white linen tee – M&S, grey pleated skirt – La Redoute, silver Bussey sneakers – c/o Air & Grace, brooch – vintage, watch – Michael Kors

I love the whole skirts with sneakers look but I have to admit that this is the first time that I have been brave enough to try it for myself. And I think I like it. I totally fell for the midi this summer and I’m keen to see how I can carry the look into autumn and I think this skirt is a great way to try.

I’m probably too dumpy to get away with a skirt like this but I don’t actually care! It’s pleated and swishy and twirly and girly and I love it! The weather here is still remarkably good for September but I’m starting to feel a bit of a nip in the air and the addition of a denim jacket is always an easy way to eke out your summer wardrobe I find. I have been loving this amazing weather I must admit. Every day of sunshine feels like such a bonus that I’m really not in any hurry for the autumnal weather to arrive. I usually can’t wait for autumn with its promise of cashmere and boots and chunky knits but this year feels different somehow. I want to cling on to summer for as long as I can.

I think it’s fair to say though that the real star of the show here today is the Bussey sneakers from Air & Grace. Just look at them in all their shiny silver gorgeousness! Man I love these sneaks I think they are the coolest thing I have ever had on my feet! Months later they still have that new trainer feeling too thanks to the clever bouncy stuff in the soles, it really is like walking on clouds.

So that was me, what have you been wearing this week? Are you still keen to cling on to summer too?

    Such a gorgeous outfit. You totally rock it. If I try a skirt n sneakers combo I always feel I look like I’m a commuter wearing my comfy shoes for the journey to work before I change into heels at the office! xx
