I can't believe my big sister has turned 30! I wore this outfit to the family party we had on Wednesday for her. We had a group of around 20 come over for food and drink and cheese. It was such a warm humid day I couldn't not wear something white and floaty.

I had been looking for a white pleated chiffon midi skirt for what felt like months. So when I came across this perfect one in Primark for about £14 there was no question that I'd buy it.
Listen up any Primark snobs out there, this skirt is so well made, so well fitting and of good quality material for such a great price, you cannot argue with that. Why spend £40 on a similar skirt (that may fall to pieces in minutes.)
I was terrified of spilling something down it and ruining it forever but thankfully I was careful. I also popped a short nude underskirt/slip on just in case of any underwear flashing. Also from Primark for £5.

This vest is a beautiful colour, I'm not quite sure how to describe it. I've never owned anything in this shade before and I'll be looking for more of this come Autumn. Take a look at my Autumn 2011 Wish List to see what else I'll be buying for the approaching season.

These 'straps-galore' leather sandals are Blowfish and super comfy. (Please ignore ugly toes ew ew) They are a beautiful bronze and as long as the sun is shining, they will be on my feet. My mum kindly bought them for me in the Amazon shoe sale for only £11.25 - bargain!

Again this Topshop ring which is an all time fave, and also wearing my sideways cross necklace. I did my nails in this leopard print yesterday, quite half-heartedly but I love the way they turned out and can't stop vainly admiring my handy-work. I'm thinking of doing a quick tutorial if anyone would like one?
