Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! I have been so excited to share this outfit with you… when the skirt arrived, it was love at first sight! I just adore wearing something fabulously feminine, it’s so much fun. What I love is how easy the skirt has been to wear, pairing it with a simple top, tee or a crisp white blouse gives you a ‘wow’ outfit in moments. I’ve always been a fan of mixing casual and glam, so a piece like this most certainly isn’t reserved for special occasions only.

The ridiculously amazing part?  This gorgeous midi skirt is currently on sale at Sheinside for $16.67 (and they have other colors too!). I have to tell you, I feel like every woman needs a skirt like this – I don’t know how I got through so many years without one! I’ve also partnered with Sheinside today to offer one lucky Style Elixir reader the chance to win a $100 Sheinside Gift Card – and it’s open to entries worldwide (just use the Rafflecopter widget below).

Meet Our Head Stylist…

 I am delighted to introduce you to our Head Stylist, Catherine from Not Dressed As Lamb. I have to tell you, Catherine is one of the nicest people I’ve met through blogging – she is so warm and friendly, I know you’ll adore her as much as I do! Oh and her style is just as incredible…

STYLE Q&A WITH CATHERINE:

How would you describe your style?  I describe it as eclectic, but erring on the side of ‘preppy with a twist’. I’ll swing wildly from dresses and heels one day to masculine chic the next!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I love the coloured trainers (sneakers) that are around right now – the Nike Air Max and New Balance ones, for example. I’ve just received a pair of orange and navy New Balance ones that I can’t wait to style this spring.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started the blog three years ago on my 39th birthday – it was initially only intended as a one year project to see if I could improve my style as I approached my 40th. Like most bloggers I’d been following style blogs for a while and got really inspired. My favourite things have always been photography and fashion (I did a photography degree and originally wanted to become a fashion photographer), and when I was younger I always loved creative writing – a fashion blog seemed a natural thing to start to combine my two loves, and encourage me to pick up writing again. The one year project has turned into full time blogging which I couldn’t be happier about!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  I’ve recently discovered the best contouring product ever: Ilamasqua’s ‘Hollow’ pigment cream, which is just the right slightly greyish brown colour rather than orangey bronze. And I’ve always used YSL Touche Eclat concealer and L’Oréal Elnett hairspray – there’s no other hairspray I’d dream of using.

What is your best beauty trick?  For perfectly curled lashes, never use those metal ones – I find they just kink the lashes awkwardly rather than curl them. I use heated ones (or plastic ones if the batteries have gone) – and the trick is to separate your eyelid away from your bottom lashes by very gently pulling the skin below your eyebrow up. You can then get right to the base of the lashes without pinching the eyelid (painful!) or catching the bottom lashes in the curlers. Then move the curler out and curl the tips of the lashes as well – you’ve then got perfectly curled lashes.

Tell us something not many people know about you? I’m teaching myself (slowly) to play the bongos. I can’t bear bubble baths (the bubbles touching my skin creep me out). I’ve never seen a single Harry Potter film or episode of Downton Abbey – and I don’t feel deprived at all!
