all i need now is a straw hat

hey everyone!
how you doing? :) hope you're all well, i'm feeling fabulous today! maybe because i came across something style-wise that i've never tried before and i love it! this being a maxi skirt ;) also, because i've recently discovered a new song by jamie t - called "if you got the money" which is one of my favourite summer songs now, listen to it here
so anyway all i did today was run errands with my dad and brother, then cook a curry which is almost done so i can't wait for that, yummmaaayum! :D also, last night i found out that the lovely kate from campervans and cake had awarded me the lovely blogger award so i'll write a little bit about that later! :)
--------------------
first, here's my new maxi which i think would look even better with a straw hat and some jeffrey campbell booties... you'll see what i mean! oh and a big thanks to janelle for being my photographer today :)

warning - picture heavy post
Photobucket
bodysuit - siobhan mckenzie
Photobucket
belt - topshop
Photobucket
maxi skirt - asos
Photobucket
wedges - office
Photobucket
yellow nail polish - barry m

yes... i am wearing a long skirt! it feels so crazy for me because as you've probably noticed i don't ever wear long skirts as they don't suit me... well. i think this one does :P
Photobucket
it's really soft and i love the pleats. it's a chiffon layer over a silky mini layer which i love because it's not a proper maxi, more half mini half maxi which is more me :)
Photobucket
as you can see it's light and breezy. i decided to get one from asos because they didn't have them in my size in topshop. it was £45 but the quality of the skirt is amazing.
Photobucket
i decided to wear my wedges with it to give my outfit some colour and also so that the skirt didn't trail along the floor, i also think it elongates me a bit more and makes me look more elegant.
Photobucket
elegance out the window :P i wore this great patterned bodysuit because as you know i'm a strong believer of something tight, something loose and i thought the colour and pattern on the bodysuit would give it a little more "me".
Photobucket
i wore the belt to break the outfit up a little and a skinny belt belongs on every outfit!
Photobucket
i realised that i'd paid £45 for a circle of fabric with a hole in it :P haha ah well! i love my new maxi skirt, what do you think? 
----------------------------------
now for the lovely blogger award
i've previously been given this award by another gorgeous blogger but it completely slipped my mind to write about it. so here are the rules i missed out on:
1. thank the person who gave it to you - thank you kate! everyone go and check out her lovely blog at campervans and cake.
2. write 7 random facts about myself
- i hate peanuts
- i did tap and ballet classes for 13 years
- my phone is a motorola flip out
- i have a pillow collection 
- i don't eat potato unless it's a chip 
- i love stand up comedy
- i'm asthmatic
3. nominate 15 other bloggers
i know it's a blogging tradition to nominate 15 bloggers, but i think it's a little more personal to only pick 4 or 5. so here are my 5 nominees for the lovely blog award (in no particular order):
well done girls! go and have a look at those 5 blogs, they're absolutely lovely! :)
4. let the people know you've given them an award
about to do that now!
--------------------------
so everyone, i hope you have a really great weekend! i'm looking forward to doing some baking tomorrow, and if you're lucky i'll show you something sweet soon! (very proud of that pun :P) haha speak shortly lovelies! :) ronan xxx

  11. Very cute outfit, I have been thinking about buying a skirt like this for absolutely ages but like you I didn't know if it would suit me, I am much more of a mini skirt kind of girl! You look absoloutely gorgeous in yours though, it makes me want one even more! But I don't want to spend loads of money on something I might only wear once or twice, oh life problems! ;). The bodysuit is gorgeous too!

  28. RONAN :D Your skirt look so nice and I'm suprised you don't have more maxi skirts since you're tall! That's why I don't have any... yet. Being 5'2" - YES I AM THAT SHORT! - means they're not easy to find for my petite frame. Ah well, I'll find one, one day. Sooo many lovely pictures in this post; i want all your pretty clothes! Well done on the blogger award, you deserve it m'lovely. HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE PEANUTS?! :) xx
