(Sunglasses: Taylor Morris London, Top: Zara (super cheap alternative here), Skirt: C/O Marks and Spencer, Shoes: Next, Bag: Forever 21, Bangles: Oliver Bonas, Astrid and Miyu & Silver Service)

There's something about being on holiday that makes getting dressed up in the evening that little bit more exciting. Lose your inhibitions! Be a bit brave! These people don't know you're not a sartorial maverick on your home shores! So, naturally, on one of the warmest evenings of our mini break, I took out the skirt for a spin, and although I was certainly not lacking in the heat department (and hey, this gal could always do with a little extra height), was pretty bloody happy with the outcome- holiday dressing kudos, wardrobe!

So, let's talk about the skirt. THE SKIRT. The skirt that sent Marks and Sparks into a Chung-related link clicking frenzy (come on, if Alexa wore it you know it's a good 'un) as well the day their chocolate shortbread and Percy Pigs weren't top of my M&S shopping list. But can you blame me? It's certainly a statement piece, but I'm sure with a black polo, crisp white shirt or oversized knit in winter it'll be just as wearable come the chillier months. There's a reason it was a sell out after all, right?


and here's what I wore...

  15. Wowee what a fashion forward skirt from M&S! I absolutely love this top, and its definitely fitting to your holiday destination with its Spanishy vibe. The handbag is very Chloe-esque too. Think I've turned into the heart-eyed emoji over this outfit... haha :) x

  23. You look gorgeous. To me it's the other way around, when I'm on vacation I can't be bothered to dress up and to do my hair and makeup. I just want to relax and not bother about whether my makeup's melting off my face ha! xx

  46. THE SKIRT! This is so strange I literally just mentioned it in the post I'm working on today - you're right about Alexa, I managed to secure the gingham dress she wore last year in my size on ebay, my excitement was rather overboard :P

    Looking gorgeous as ever, I don't think you've ever posted an outfit I haven't loved! I just wish i were tall enough to wear skirts like this.
