Maxi is the summer staple this year, but isn't that the case every year? Now, I'm not one to shy away from the maxi, as in my previous post I have already dipped into the pool of maxi and there's no dening the benefits of an item of clothing that can hide a multitude of sins but the time is coming to move to a new length. A new length! Yes, thats right, a new length, one that sits mid-calf - not for the cankle brigade I'm afraid, but for the more delicate of ankles this length is fabulous. Chic, elegant and no chance of tripping up. Feel like Audrey Hepburn skipping along.

H&M Fashion Against Aids

Let me tell you, I don't need an excuse to partake in a spot of shopping at the best of times but when proceeds from the purchase are donated to charity, there's no stopping me. Hence my love of H&M. H&M has always been my favourite shopping haven - its cheap, caters to many levels of fashion and has the little super trendy section that, in my opinion, far outways anything Topshop do.So, when I popped in there the other day and found their Fashion Against Aids collection I was over the moon. With a quarter of the very reasonable prices going to charity, the edgy designs seemed too
good to be true. Oh well, there's not point fighting my addication, so I opted for a very Rock and Roll(Kate Moss would love it - although I'm not sure if that's a good thing anymore) style fringe top & a fab maxi dress-perfect with my mumsy shoes.

There is something about mumsy shoes that I love, to pull off a good mumsy shoe and avoid frumpton town you'll either need to be wearing something short, tight or low cut, preferably while in a drunken stuper.

These Clarks sandals are perfect for mum chic. As are the H&M espradrilles below - wear with tight leather.
