Almost every girl loves mermaids and the SS12 trend for all things underwater-fantasy is the perfect opportunity to channel your inner Ariel. I've been in love with this Topshop Premium Silk Shimmer Pleated Dip Hem Skirt since it first came to my attention but at £65 I chose not to buy it. Luckily for me it's now in the sale for £35 or £30 for petite and tall versions (I'm wearing petite), so I jumped at the chance! The skirt is 65% silk and 35% metallic fibre and so feels very luxurious as well as looking ultra girly and pretty. Here I've paired it with an equally feminine mint green sheer blouse bought years ago in Primark and some nude heels from Garage, but I also can't wait to wear it a black button-up or white crop tee and black leather biker jacket to toughen it up a little too!
