Wood, Denim & Orla Kiely Clarks shoes

You know those outfits that you feel great wearing? That’s exactly how I felt about this. Just don’t look at my roots! I hate that the hairdresser talked me into highlights when I wanted balayage. I love uneven root growth and my hair seems to grow at an even pace – causing a dead straight line of rootage. I am going to have to wait until its a bit longer before breaking it up.

I love nothing more than a midi skirt, loose top and chunky heels. Denim button through skirts are all the rage this Spring/Summer, but the ones mostly on the market were the super short mini ones. I loved the Stella McCartney a-line denim midi and sometimes it’s nice to blow your clothing budget on one special thing. However, £320 on a denim skirt…hell to the no! Even if I was rich I wouldn’t. After I hunted and hunted I almost gave up hope. Then an M&S marketing email appeared in my inbox. Strangely I opened it as I never usually look at newsletters, but it was like fate! It is longer than the Stella McCartney one, but I think I actually prefer the longer length.

The brand is based in the US and delivery took about 7 working days. I wasn’t asked to pay any custom fees. What I also thought was handy is that they can size the watch for you. There is a button next to the ‘add to cart selection’. I have super skinny wrists so every single watch I have needs to have about 8 links taken out.

I was so excited when Clarks offered me a sample from the new SS15 Orla Kiely for Clarks line. It took me a while to choose, but I gravitated towards the navy Beryl. The chunkyness of them felt very 70s which we all know is the big trend of the season. I also really love these pink flats. The best thing of all was the fact these shoes fit me perfectly! Clarks do half sizes and I usually have trouble with a 4 being too tight and a 5 which is too loose.

I am going to have to be good with my spending at the moment. We are buying a house and we put in a final offer for one we really like and Just waiting for the vendors to get back to us. I have been bartering on price in between editing this post. If they say no it’s back to the search. Fingers and toes crossed though as it is a super duper cute house and I could so see myself living there.

    Ohh God, I’ve been looking for a similar kind of skirt for ages and haven’t found one as yet. Totally agree with you on the point that most of them are the mini ones, if any. You look beautiful Kylie, the kimono top looks adorable with the skirt!
