It’s a wrap

A true summer staple, the midi skirt can be easily elevated from casual daywear to night out on the town – simply switch the tee-shirt for a delicate cami, tousle your locks and add a swipe of lip gloss. We love the cool, crisp navy and white of this embroidered white and navy wrap skirt designed and made in Greece. Oh, and it’s in the sale too… so we love it even more. Available from Two Ducks in St John’s, Woking.
