Look of the Day: Just Another Full Midi Skirt

Full printed midi skirt
Today's post will be very brief as I'm recovering from a nasty cold and the spells of dizziness make it hard for me to stare at the computer screen for longer periods of time. 

Anyway...as you can see, today I'm wearing another full midi skirt. I bet you must be getting fed up of seeing them on my blog.

This particular skirt first debuted on My Daily Wear last year. I admit that I after showing it off on the blog, I hanged it in my wardrobe and completely forgot about its existence. Oops.

Joe Browns Matching Blazer and Full Skirt

Joe Browns Matching Blazer and Full Skirt
Happy Monday! I hope your week started on a great note. Today I'm really excited to show you a matching set that I got from Joe Browns a few weeks ago (if you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen a sneak peak of this outfit)

I know what you're thinking right now...She is wearing another full skirt. Well, what can I say? I just love this style of skirts as they are so flattering and sophisticated. I know some of you are a bit shy to experiment with full skirts so today I decided to share with you simple tips on how you can wear this feminine silhouette. Let's start...

1. If your skirt features a bold print, pair it with a solid colour (for example here).
2. Don't be afraid to mix textures (for example, today I paired my skirt with a ruffle shirt). 
3. If you're petite, try wearing a skater skirt instead. It is equally feminine.
4. You can wear a full skirt even if you prefer to dress in a casual way. Simply, pair yours with a tee, tank top or a denim jacket (for example here). 
5. If you want to create a sexy but demure look, wear a full skirt with a cropped top.

Are you wearing full skirts? How are you styling yours?

Look of the Day: Frills

lavender frilled jumper
Don't you love it when something you've been lusting over for ages goes on sale? That happened to me last month while I was browsing the H&M website. 

After adding the yellow skirt that I showed you here to the basket, I decided to check their sales section. To be honest I didn't have much hope that I would find anything there but I decided to give it a go anyway. As soon as I landed on the page, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a jumper I added to my top secret Pinterest board and featured in the February wish list post, was reduced from £35 to £10.49. 

With frills around the neckline and sleeves, this ribbed jumper is really soft to the touch. I have so many ideas about how to style it but today I decided take a fairly minimalistic approach and team it with slim fit trousers, lavender heels and my new Primark bag. 

What do you think of today's look? I look forward to reading your comments.

My Little Garden Box

My Little Garden Box
Happy Monday! I hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend and didn't miss me too much over the past few days. I took an unplanned break from blogging as I wanted to focus more energy on my new website which is slowly coming together. The big launch is planned for 29th May so save the date and feel free to connect with Her Hive on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. You can also join our mailing list for updates and self-care tips. 
My Little Garden Box

Today I'm really excited to do another unboxing post as April edition of My Little Box landed on my doorstep the other day. With a 'Garden' theme, the box was jammed with goodies which are right up my street. So without a further ado, here is what I got last month. 
My Little Garden Box

As I have a sensitive and acne-prone skin, beauty products from subscription boxes are usually a hit and miss for me. However, this month I can't complain as I received exactly what I needed. Among the products there were a Vitamin Shot Face Scrub and Easy Morning moisturiser (both from My Little Beauty) and a Restoring Body Lotion from Mixa. I've never come across Mixa before but as soon as I started using the lotion I've noticed that it has done wonders for my skin. It's really nourishing and fast absorbing so I don't have to wait ages for it to absorb before getting dressed.

When it comes to lifestyle products, My Little Garden Box included a really pretty scarf which you can wear in multiple ways. As I can't pull off the neck scarf look, I've decided to put it on my work bag instead. Inside the box, I also found a water bottle fruit infuser which reminded me that I need to drink more water, magnetic shopping list pad, a seasonal fresh produce calendar, and a sample of Ape Crunchy Coconut Bites that are delicious and great for satisfying sugar cravings.
