Wardrobe Diaries: Petals and Peplum

I love umbrella skirts so when I saw this lovely number at Asos I knew I had to have it. The skirt has a layer of tulle underneath so you know it won't loose it's puffiness. As soon as I teamed it with this mint peplum knit I felt like Odette from Swan Lake. There's something about full skirts and high heels that makes me want to twirl and twirl. These photos were taken at my favourite time of the day, where the streets are bathed in a golden glow and the fading light creates a soft dreamscape of the day. And while the rest of the city was busying themselves with dinner plans, I went out and danced in the twilight.
