You Know How I Feel

Another sunny day, another simple light outfit. As it was my birthday yesterday I had a family BBQ on Sunday afternoon/evening which I really enjoyed. There was chicken and burgers and my family never have proper BBQ's so I was quite pleased they put one on for my birthday. I drank fruity ciders and had yummy cheesecake too so I'm still full today! I took these photos in the garden so you don't get bored of my bedroom wall. I had my mum take this photos and she was really good, surprisingly! Telling me how to pose and being patient (for once in her life). Yesterday I went out for dinner just with my parents and I have an outfit to show you from that later on this week too. 

This midi skirt is a firm favourite in my summer wardrobe. It's so comfy, and floaty and of course simple. The length is on trend and I much prefer midi length to maxi length. It looks a bit cooler and vintage. The navy blue means it's safe to wear on the bottom, safe from spillages as I am a mucky pup. I paired it with this stripy top. I love the green and red colours and it goes lovely with the navy colour of the skirt. I also think stripes are a classic. So, I might invest in a breton style top to go with this skirt too. 
Going for the pastel colours on my nails in form of this mint green. I love how it pops out against the darker tones of the outfit. I don't usually wear this many colours in one outfit, but I quite like how they all blend together.

Hope everyone has had a lovely start to the week. I have a lot of catching up to do in the blog world with all the sun, birthday celebrations and cider drinking I've been doing recently.
