Summer is finally getting it's act together with the superb, sunny weather we've been experiencing here in Sydney recently. So far, I am pleased to say I've had my fair share of lazy afternoons, chilled drinks and sultry summer nights which I hope continues until the season is out. Most of those chilled drinks have been a selection of thirst quenchers - rounds of vodka orange, fresh coconut juice and large glasses of fizzy lemonade. When food and fashion meet, it can at times look like a Katy Perry latex ensemble, though this Lemonade Mini Skirt from Beginning Boutique is right on the money! Cute, little lemons are printed all over this pleated number,  I really should of set up my own homemade lemonade stand as a prop for this blog post. Now that would be just brilliant wouldn't it? hehe Teamed up with a feminine lace top and pewter accents - this look is light and playful for summer and can carry onto winter styled with a pair of black stockings, ankle boots and a chunky knit. It also comes in a green version called Love Them Apples - apples, lemons... whatever you fancy, I'm sure there's a suitable drink or dish out there to 'accessorise' the skirt with. A nasty food stain doesn't count though! ;P

Cheers to another week of good weather! Hope you've all had a great weekend.

I've got a special giveaway launching tomorrow so be on the look out!
