blue

new skirt

new skirt



I haven't done an outfit post for a while and really it's because my outfits have been more practical than pretty lately. I've had so much uni work to do it's just been a case of grabbing whatever is nearest and suits the weather outside. May has so far been a wash out in England, but I hope it gets warmer so I can stop wearing my tights!

Anyway, today I decided I would stop moping about (dressing scruffily generally makes me feel worse, but I dress scruffy because I feel mopey..a viscious circle!). I received this lovely blue skirt from Topshop last friday and had not yet had the opportunity to wear it. Today I had to finish off my essay so I thought I would dress for the occassion. The skirt is from the Barbara Hulanicki range and was about the only thing I really liked it from it, to be honest. The rest of it is too 'hippy' for me really. This is wonderful though and I can see it will fit into my wardrobe perfectly. I love the button detailing, the high waist and the way it swishes when I walk.

new vintage necklace

I should have worn this necklace with it really! I bought this from the etsy shop Shabby Shack Shop and I adore it. The chain is a bit short but other than that I love it. It's perfect and elegant and also really shiny.

  2. Your whole outfit looks very pretty!

    I recognised the skirt immediately (oh topshop obsession, how you rule my life!) as it was my favourite piece in the Barbara Hulanicki collection too! Alas it wasn't in when I went there today :(

  32. "dressing scruffily generally makes me feel worse, but I dress scruffy because I feel mopey..a viscious circle!"
    In my head, i was saying "ah what a viscious circle!" before I read to the next line and saw we were thinking alike. I am far too familar with this circle. I wore sweats and a tank to school the other day because I knew I'd have to take a 5-hour test, but I felt so much ickier knowing I looked like crap!
    I LOVE this blue skirt on you. I hope England warms up so you can wear things like this more often!
