furgundy.



midi skirt - topshop, furry headband & top - h&m, leather jacket - topshop, boots - asos


something tells me that this length of skirt isn't very easy to pull off, or particularly popular? but i saw it and fell in love with the colour and the pleats and, surprisingly, the length. i'd seen other bloggers wearing midi skirts and they looked great, but i knew it wasn't something i'd be able to wear very well. i still wanted to try though. and, despite the length making me look even shorter and stumpier than i do anyway, i really enjoyed wearing it! it's so girly and i couldn't stop swishing it about. as soon as i saw it, i had pictured it with stripes. i actually quite like the outfit, even though i think it would look better on someone a lot taller than myself.

i'm off to london tomorrow to see the national at the O2 in brixton, is anyone a fan and/or seeing them tomorrow? i'm excited, and i hope to sneak in some christmas shopping too, and of course some shopping for myself.

  2. You're right, this length of skirt is difficult to pull off, but you wear it so well! Can't believe you're just wearing your aviator in this freezing weather though! Brave girl!

  3. So in love with your fur headband! It should be very pleasant to wear it during this season because of the low temperatures^^

    i love the red skirt, it looks nice in the pictures. i'm also a short ass at 5'5 - oh how i wish i were tall - so i know what you mean about feeling like clothes don't look as good on you.

  19. Such a pretty skirt! And the length looks really nice on you! I tried a midi skirt once and it went all the way down to my ankles because I'm so short, haha!
