The midi dress: a classic item that should definitely be a wardrobe staple in every female's closet. It creates an extremely flattering silhouette and is a classy, yet sexy option that proves appropriate for most events - it can be styled down or glammed up. I must own at least ten midi dresses! They're perfect for when you don't want to go short; and they're not too long, so you don't look as if you're bordering on senior citizen.

Another classic is the beret. You may remember the photo of the cute couple I snapped during London Fashion Week A/W13 (click > here <). I loved their style, so decided to go searching for mine, which was tucked away at the back of my soft accessories drawer.
I teamed this with a gold mirror belt (which seems to be all the rage at the moment), matching gold cuff bracelet, and, of course, my gold-heeled sandals from Zara. In keeping with the black and gold colour palette, I thought I'd opt for a neck scarf instead of a chain or necklace.
Seeing as the sun seems to be making surprise appearances recently, I decided to treat myself to some new sunglasses. Even though it's from the Sports Vintage range, these shades are nothing short of chic and go well with this look.
The ensemble as a whole looks sort of stereotypically French - which was not my intention - but I think it came together well.
Have you rocked a midi lately?
