sequinned picnic


 Asos skirt, Emerson white top, gifted boater hat, Betts shoes

This skirt is easily the most beautiful item of clothing I have ever owned. It's entirely made of sequins, beads and tulle (aka. a dream skirt!) and not something you would think was under $30, but it was (yippee!). Anyway, for this outfit which I plan on wearing on the picnic we are going on later this week, I wanted the skirt to stand out as much as possible, so this pretty white top was perfect. I hadn't worn this little boater in a while either. If you've been a long time reader of Avenue M, you might remember it from my first ever outfit posts (it was my favourite accessory, ever!). It was quite a regular occurrence!

Anyway, I wanted to share something really exciting with you all! I was recently accepted as a Teen Vogue Fashion Click blogger. I've wanted to be a part of the program since I first started reading Bonnie's blog and now my dream has come true! ♥

It was an absolute scorcher today and I felt like I was going to melt into the ground whilst these pictures were being taken, but I'm happy with them nonetheless and like how golden those trees are in the background. I think they complement the green in the skirt well!
P.S: Mariana (such a lovely girl!) interviewed me here, I'd love it if you went and followed her blog and check it out :) And, the amazing people at Independent Fashion bloggers featured me in their last Links a la Mode along with a few other bloggers. Definitely have a squizz at that one too, I loved reading all the articles &hearts

Have a great day!

Yes, that skirt is certainly an eye-catcher! Perfect compliment to a stunner like you. I love that you styled it simply with a darling hat and white top to really let the skirt shine. You're making me long for summer (it was -10 degrees where I live today!). Have a lovely day!
