A Thrifted Midi

Top - Miss Selfridge (Old)
Skirt - Charity Shop
Shoes - Converse
Sunglasses - Topshop
Belt - Primark

I have to say, this is definitely one of my most favourite outfits I've posted on the blog. I've wanted a floral midi skirt since the start of summer, but I couldn't really find one on the high street. Are midi skirts just not a thing this year? I dunno. Anyways, I found this beaut in a charity shop for £4 - bargain, I know. It's basically what I have been looking for, and I'm actually really looking forward to styling it up with a little black roll neck jumper in the Autumn, It had never crossed my mind to wear a midi skirt in the colder month, but I think with the darker colours in this one it could work quite well. I'm also enjoying the contrast between the skirt and the converse, I love mixing up different styles like that!
