The Pink Biker

I'm wearing this Matalan organza-panel skirt so much at the moment that I'm attempting to "ration" posts featuring it! However, I couldn't resist teaming it with my lush new pink biker jacket, also a SS14 Matalan marvel, for a flirty '50s feel, with a little scoop of mint courtesy of one half of my pastel Missguided co-ords to complete the Pink Lady/ice cream sundae effect... appropriately, I actually happened to be attending a production of Grease!

Nicole x Missguided: The Fishnet Bodysuit

You've seen my Nicole x Missguided white faux leather crop top several times now, so I figured it was about time I showed you my other acquisitions from the range, starting with this monochrome fishnet body - the perfect SS14 spin on sports luxe, dressed up with a panelled pencil and killer heels, or down with high-waisted trackies and trainers... It has a thong back, which I thought was a little odd at first, but turns out to be a rather ingenious way of minimising the VPL issues usually inherent to bodysuits! This long-sleeved monochrome version is currently sold out, but you can still grab it in black, or in a sleeveless racerback style.

Lace vs. Metal: Battle of the £10 Pencil Skirts

Jane Norman was my Mecca throughout my bodycon-dominated uni years, but had gone a little off-radar following its post-administration decline in store numbers. However, since spying the perfect stripy pencil skirt on a recent foray into the wilds of Croydon, I decided to check out its other offerings online. Turned out it was still bodycon paradise, with, even better, tons of its signature midi skirts on sale for peanuts! I snapped up a zip-backed white lace pencil along with a stretch metallic version for £10 each. I'm afraid they seem to have sold out online now, but I'd definitely recommend checking out their other bargains, and peeking in-store if you're lucky enough to have one nearby...

One word of warning, though, if you happen to be more Kardashian than Knightley of derrière... after these pictures were taken, the metallic skirt split across the horizontal back seam whilst I was enjoying a civilised night out at the theatre... thankfully I had added a longline blazer to the above ensemble!

Girl Meets Boy: 2 Ways to Wear a Floral Shirt

I picked this George at ASDA floral shirt up on a whim recently, since, although I had next to no idea as to how I would actually wear it, I couldn't resist the charms of its pretty porcelain-style print... Fast-forward a few weeks and it's already one of my most-worn items of the season! Last week, I happened to throw it on two days running - flipping between a ladylike vintage vibe (ably assisted by my new mesh-panel midi), and a more androgynous, "suited" style (accompanied by co-ordinating cobalt strides) - so I thought I'd show you the results...
