In the midi hour

Ah, I think I have found the perfect midi skirt! Midi skirts are one of my favourite items to wear, makes me feel all ladylike and elegant. :) I sometimes wish I was living in the 1940-50s when it was fashion and mandatory for women to wear skirt and dresses with a decent length. :) Not sexy you say? Well I beg to differ, its sexy in a more subtle way ( which I prefer anyway). ;)

Full and twirly, just my cup of tea! :) Ive dressed it down rather casually this time around, but I cant wait to play with it some more, endless ways of styling it I believe. :)

And it has pockets, yay! :) So where can you get this beauty you might ask. Its from H&M actually, I encountered it on the sale online, never seen it in the stores. And did I mention, its perfect to hide any post pregnancy baby bump and similar lumps. ;) Full score in my book! :)

This week Im on vacation or should I rather say staycation. :) Im off work for three weeks as my little girl is starting nusery/kindergarden. Today was her first day and it went rather badly. Lots of tears and she didnt feel at home at all with the other children and staff. :( Hopefully she will come around by the end of my vacation, it takes time to adjust from spending the days at home to the hustle and bustle at the nursery. Its really good for her to get out and spend some time with other children I believe. I didnt attend nursery when I grew up as there werent any and I was terrified of the other kids when I started preschool. In the end my shyness led me to be bullied by the other children, a fate I certainly dont wish for my little girl.

Cardigan from B-Young
Tank top from H&M

Summer in the name of maxis

Another maxi who would have thought? ;) Its been one HOT summer beating all previous records. Never ever have we had so many days with 30 C, its like living in southern Europe I imagine. :) Even worse cause we are not used to this heat up north and swealtering away. :) Surely this weather calls for a maxi! :)

This maxi is from Boden (surprise!), the summer collection 2013. I bought it last year when I was heavily pregnant so this is the first time Im wearing it. Instant love!

Well I reckon my collection of Boden maxis will continue to grow, they are just perfect in every way. :) Im wearing a UK 8L and the length is super! :) A maxi is the perfect summer wear I think. :)

What Im wearing:

Maxi dress from Boden (SS 2013)
Sandals from Fly London

I  have to tell you my little pumpkin just turned 1 year  two weeks ago. :) I still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Funny that. ;)

Love you to the moon and back little sunshine! :) <3 <3 <3

Bodenista - maxi dress

Surprise, surprise, another Boden review coming up. :) This beauty (meaning the maxi dress) is called the Maya maxi dress and totally lovable. I wore it for the first time this weekend in very hot weather (30 C) and I felt like I had nothing on, talking of comfortable or what? :)

This is my second maxi dress from Boden and Im really pleased with it. :) Im wearing an UK size 8L (long) and its just the perfect length on me being 5"7. I chose to wear it with a tank top for modesty reasons, its quite low cut as you can see.

Its a bargain to be had, 60 % off these days. :) And it goes without saying that I luuve the colours and pattern, again. ;) hehehehee. No Im not on Bodens payroll or anything, I just cant shut up about how wonderful the Boden clothes are. :)
