Thoroughly Modern Midi!

Minis will always have their place in a summer wardrobe and maxis are super for early and late summer days when temperatures may be cooler - but this summer is all about the midi. Whether straight and fitted or flared, they give a nod to 1950's glamour but with a modern edge. Dresses or skirts, midis are easy to dress up or down as the length oozes a sophistication which is harder to achieve with a mini. Topshop have some great examples of modern midi skirts at the moment with sheer panels and see through lace. Primark have a wide selection of easy to wear midi dresses in various colours and patterns if you don't want to invest too much money in the trend.

Joanna's outfit : Striped midi dress from Primark, red Converse available here, red leather satchel from Belfast's Continental Market, necklace (old) from River Island.

Camille's outfit : ASOS dress (old), purple wedges (old), vintage necklace (from my Granny), cameo earings from ASOS.

Look out for Camille in her Wimbledon White if you have the ASOS Fashion Up app.


  1. Primark might not be the most expensive shop but Camille and Joanna make their clothes look like a million dollars. They make the midi look summery stylish and refreshing.

  2. Do you do 'make-overs'? (from feeling blobby in Belfast)

  3. We've just started blogging, but watch this space - sounds like a fun idea!

  4. Loving these dresses and the blog :) Will check back often! x
