Styling a denim midi skirt in autumn fashion bloggerSummer clothes have been stored away, and I'm now in the process of gleefully reuniting with my chunky jumpers and cashmere cardigans.  Yay!  I'll admit, when the temperature drops I find myself wishing it was acceptable to step outdoors in furry microwaveable slippers (please tell me this isn't just a Brit thing?), however a few recently added 'hero pieces' to my wardrobe are preventing me from inflicting such a cruel sight upon the world.  Right now, I'm all about this denim midi skirt designed by Donna Ida for Jaeger, the perfect foundation for a ton of different looks this season...
