I am normally a massive Mulberry fan and have been for years now, but this London Fashion Week i was totally disappointed - partly because there was no show, just a preview, this is usually a fantastic event that reminds me why i love the brand. Secondly i was not loving the new addition to the handbag family - for me the bags are what make the brand and i wait eagerly each fashion week to see the latest addition but this year underwhelmed was my only feeling when i saw the Cara bag's.

Always loved the longer length skirts - but was never quite sure how to style one but since the midi is everywhere at the moment and is a key piece for any wardrobe this season i thought it was about time i find out how. Pinterest is a wash with so many new midi skirt outfits, and i have been so inspired i have ordered a fabulous black textured one from H&M (hate waiting for it to be delivered!), and i am excited to style it up.
Whether it is working a monochrome look or being bold with colour and print, the midi skirt lends itself to many an occasion - perfect for the office or a party dependent on your accessories. Layering up with a leather jacket, blazer or statement knit over a striped or slogan tee, these outfits below all have 1 thing in common, simple styling. Of all the looks below i think my favourite has to be the cream tulle styled with a grey shrunken blazer, and belt, although i do feel a statement necklace would have completed the look.
Many moons ago before i entered the world of buying, i worked in my local M&S store and during this time the sub brand Limited Collection was launched. Due to the size of the Northampton store we were not lucky enough to have this new range however the odd piece would appear through returns or during sale periods and i loved to see these younger, more fashionable pieces. Nowadays the range has gone from strength to strength with some truly beautiful pieces at reasonable prices. You can imagine my surprise when today i popped into my local store to pick up some birthday cards and i was met by a new look store with none other than a dedicated area just for Limited Collection! The store looked fresh with the new season collection and i took practically everything to the changing room, i was just so impressed with the variety and style. Particularly loving the lips print dress, very Lulu Guinness print in a flattering shape - not your usual M&S piece.

One of my 2014 resolutions was to try and spend less but wear more. I have so many great pieces in my wardrobe that i never wear or always wear in a certain way - i wanted to mix it up and create some new combinations, especially as i am trying to embrace new styles and especially mixing prints. Any new pieces i do buy need to be items i truly love. One thing i realised when going through my wardrobe - i own a lot of Topshop pieces especially dresses, think i may own enough to have shares in the brand, but what can i say - if the dress fits buy it in every colour! Below are my current favourite looks:
