This week's Saturday Style Guide is brought to you on Sunday due to all the non stop celebrating that's been going on over here in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee bank holiday... and by celebrating I mean the deep extensive cleaning session we had in the flat last night... accompanied with Pimms of course! Did I mention that hubs and I bought a brand new hoover (that's British for vacuum cleaner) and memory foam mattress cover/pillow set?!? To say I am the happiest (and probably lamest) wife ever is an understatement! Yes, it's true... we are adults now... sigh!
So the weather here in London had somewhat decided to grant us with some sort of resemblance of a Summer a few weeks back... and by that I mean it was finally warm enough to wear a maxi... with leggings underneath! If there is one thing Ive learned in my time living here, it's to never trust the weather even when the sun is shining. As soon as the clouds come out or the day turns into early evening, it's cold again! This maxi is actually a dress that I decided to layer it with a chambray button down on top to use it as a skirt. Ive been seeing bloggers restyle their maxi dresses like this, thought "genius!" and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. You can see how I styled it before as a dress here. Add a detailed belt to cinch in the waist, a statement watch, and some wedge sandals... and viola, you have yourself a perfect breezy summer outfit... oh and let's not forget the tights ;)
