The Wardrobe Edit

Last Sunday, I dedicated the day to taking a proverbial scythe to my wardrobe. I ‘cut out’ a whopping 50 items, leaving behind an edit of ‘transitional piece’s that were what I was feeling were ‘now’, darling. Lets not dwell on the fact that there are now the same amount of items left, hmm. Oh and that those removed may have been taken and hung in my brothers wardrobe on the day that he left for uni… I’m not a bad sister, honest.

Though my wardrobe practically floats now that I’ve relieved it of so much weight, it also looks more monochrome than in its previous summery guise. This ASOS midi skirt just made the cut so now I’ve tasked myself with styling it into my autumn outfits until the #NoTightsClub gets banished by sub-zero temperatures for good.

How to Wear a Midi Skirt – Summer to Autumn

Here’s how I wore it on the last day of summer and below is how I’ve been re-appropriating it for October. For a girl who lives in mini skirts and leggings, the midi was a rather daring move, but don’t be afraid – try it instead of a skater and you’ll thank me when the wind blows! Choose from my favourite handful of ASOS Midis in the sale so that you can keep the summer in your wardrobe that bit longer too!

So, are you ready to don a midi skirt and swoosh about in the autumn leaves pretending you’re in a Disney film too?

    Love your style m’dear!! Those first snaps really made me miss the sunshine!! I’m really not looking forward to the long, cold winter months. This midi skirt is wonderful though and I love how you’ve made it Autumn-ified!
