Monday : 1, Emily : 0.
What a great start to the week... So far today my computer has crashed four five times. I'm not sure if it is just feeling the Monday vibe (like most of us) or if this is going to be it's new, permanent state of being! Whatever it is, it's certainly made me realise just how much I rely on my computer on a day to day basis. I probably spend more time on my computer than I do doing anything else which is a little bit of a scary thought! 
In order to get this post up, I have had to resort to handwriting it out and hoping my computer will stay on long enough for me to quickly type it in when it's done.*
Oh and did I mention my husband just rang to say I left my car keys in his car.. better make that 2-nil, Monday!
 
Anyway moving on, without pointing out the fact that I am wearing another midi skirt, (did anybody notice?!) I would just like to say that this sequin skirt was an absolute steal from Dotti (and is now even more of a bargain at just $9.95!) It's a really great fit and it is covered in sequins, what more could you possibly want from a skirt?! 

I hope everyone's Monday is going a little better than mine!


*it did!

Another day another midi skirt... Obsessed much?!

I may have accidentally purchased this skirt in another colour. Oopsy.
In my defense though, the pink version was on sale and like I said before, I had been searching for the perfect full midi skirt for a while! If you are on to a good thing...

I generally wear a midi skirt with a cropped, fitted top but this time I styled it a little bit differently. (You know, to make it seem like a different skirt!)
 I kind of like the oversized, slouchy feel of this outfit. Although it is easy to look swamped when wearing baggy items together, I feel like by adding heels and slightly tucking the jumper in, it gives it less of a bulky look.

What do you think? How do you wear your midi skirt?

Reason number 3476 why I hate Winter: The Flu. 
A sore throat that never goes away, a nose that drips constantly, a sick child that coughs so much she vomits (all through the night!) Yep, Winter is officially flu season and it is very much alive in this household. I have been through a whole box of tissues today alone and my nose is still running.. Urghh! 

In an attempt to fight through the sickness haze and 'look on the bright side', I have had a think about some of the things I actually like about Winter. (I got stuck at three.) Coming in at the top of my rather dismal list though, is the coat. 
I try to stick to a classic style when it comes to coats, as there are only limited occasions to wear them through out the year (in this particular climate, anyway!) So, a coat that can last through multiple Winters is a must. I snapped this ASOS coat up on sale a few weeks ago and am quite happy about it! It's great fit and perfect neutral colour means it will definitely be around to see me through the next few Winters, at least!  

Now if you'll excuse me I must head out for some more tissues...

The Edit: The Birkenstock


I need help. Well, more specifically, I need your help. 
I am completely undecided on how I feel about the shoe of the moment, the Birkenstock.

On one hand I think they are hideous, I mean my Mum has been wearing them for years (no offence Mum!) and I certainly didn't have an urge to rush out and buy a pair then. But, on the other hand, I see them styled with such perfection that it is hard not to go Birk crazy and get those babies on my feet in them ASAP. (Oh the power of the fashion industry!)

So, over to you, whats your opinion on the humble slide and more importantly, do I need a pair?!


Just in case it's a unanimous yes, here are some of my top picks:

Matchy match style is taking over, and to say I'm obsessed would be an understatement. 

 I feel like I'm not alone here either... Matching sets and coordinated fashions are everywhere at the moment. It has even gone beyond simply matching your own outfit, having a twin or sister to match your outfit to, is even better!
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?!) there is only one of me, and I have tried matching outfits with my two year old daughter but it's not quite the same (not to mention the weird looks we get!) 

So I had to settle for matching my skirt to my top in this polka dot ensemble by Atmos and Here. Not a bad compromise, I suppose!

Now if only I had a twin..

Last Friday I attended the opening night of Alex Maciver's latest exhibition, PERF at the Melody Smith Gallery in Carlisle.

On the night, the artist teamed up with local designers, Citizens of Arcane, in a collaboration between art and fashion. Models paraded through the gallery wearing designs by Citizens of Arcane before heading to a separate room where Maciver was waiting to transform the garments in a live display of his creativity.

I'm certainly no art expert, (I like pretty pictures!) but I quite enjoyed the art work and loved the unique collaboration with fashion on the night. The focus on performance with a little bit of mystery thrown in made for an enjoyable evening. 
The exhibition runs until July 26th. For more information check out the Melody Smith Facebook page.

Well done once again to Kelly and the team at Coveted Events for a unique and entertaining event.
