Metallic Pleats: Dressing down the Midi Skirt

There has been an abundance of metallic pleated midi skirts online and on the high street at the moment.

I love how feminine a midi skirt makes me feel and would normally dress it up with high heels and a fitted top. Pairing with high heels instantly takes the midi skirt to glam, and this kind of look would be perfect for a night out, girly meal, special event or date night.

Alternatively dressing down the midi skirt is also a great option. Adding a t-shirt and trainers naturally gives a low key dressed down feel perfect for casual lunches, cinema dates and girly shopping days.

  This casual option of wearing the midi skirt is great for people who prefer not to wear heels on a daily basis and tend to gravitative towards easy to wear simple casual styles and who doesn't love trainer days? !

When the slip dress made a comeback on the s/s16 catwalks of Givenchy, Burberry and Celine back in late 2015 it was obvious it was going to be a huge hit with ladies wanting to channel their inner 90's rock chic.

The cami dress over a tee trend proved hugely popular earlier this summer, being worn by many celebs alike such as Rihanna, Kate Moss and Thandi Newton.

I decided to switch it up a little as you've all seen hundreds of pics over the summer and at festivals  of absolutely everyone wearing a slip dress over a tee.

You will already know by now that I am a jumpsuit girl and I just loved this when I saw it.

 It has delicate lace detailing to the front and adjustable straps. I paired it with this Givenchy-esq t-shirt which was a total steal.

I really love the casual vibe, but also the versatility to allow me to dress it down with a tee and trainers or wear alone with heels when I choose.

So I normally shoot and plan blog posts way in advance, normally around 10 days prior to posting .

But I suddenly remembered I did not post about my recent holidays.

A couple of days after the football season finished Paul and I jetted to Dubai.

As I was on holiday and suppose to be relaxing and enjoying quality time with Paul I didn't take my camera on holiday, so only had my iPhone to take pictures.

I absolutely love Dubai, I have visited 11 times to date and it has to be one of my favourite places in the world.

More recently I have been visiting Dubai with just the children during the school holidays when Paul has work commitments and is not able to travel, so it was nice to enjoy it with Paul for 5 nights before returning back a few weeks later with the children for a week.

We went with the view that we would chill out and not do much ..... how very wrong were we!!! especially when half of the football league tend to holiday there at the same time.. So lots of drinking and partying was the reality! 

We stayed at the Westin this time along with a few other couples.

My favourite places to visit are;

Pai Thai Restaurant at the Dar Masyaf Hotel , Madinat Jumeirah  
Zero Gravity Beach Club
Dubai Fountains 
Nasimi Beach at the Atlantis Hotel
Burj Khalifa
Burj al Arab
Brunch -
fantastic everywhere.

We also visited a few clubs but like many clubs outside of the UK smoking is still allowed, so this was a blast from the past the next morning when I remembered the disgusting stale smoke smell lingering in my hair.
