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.

these are a few of my favourite things

cardigan, dress worn as top, shorts - topshop, boots - asos

i'm wearing 3 of my very favourite things in this outfit, and you've seen them all before so i'm afraid it's nothing new. but sometimes, when i get stuck in a fashion rut, the easiest thing to do is just grab your favourite things and go.

also trying out red lipstick here, i'm not really one for overdoing it with make-up, particularly lipstick as i'm just not sure it suits me! i do think it goes quite well with this outfit though.

new lengths.

coat - zara, jumper - topshop, skirt - vintage, boots - asos

i'm pretty sure this outfit isn't very much in keeping with my usual style (whatever that actually is...), and i think it's kinda out of proportion, what with the skirt length and coat length.. something just doesn't quite 'go'. or is that just me?

either way, i'd been wanting to wear this skirt for ages, but was despairing over what to wear it with! it's such an awkward length to style. in the end i went for this plain jumper, but decided to keep my new (amazing, navy and velvet..) coat on for the photos, as it was SO COLD. the typical english weather we get over here is well and truly setting in.

striped dress - vintage, cardigan - topshop, boots - asos

this is a pretty simple outfit (and infact a pretty cold one, too). seem to have added another obsession to my list.. burgundy. it's such an autumnul colour and i can't wear enough of it! realised i hadn't worn this striped dress in the longest time, so decided to give it an outing. i love how the stripes are vertical rather than horizontal (isn't that supposed to be slimming? or is it the other way around?).

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend, i'm going to spend mine hunting for christmas presents and making my own christmas cards! i really love this time of year!

jacket and dress - topshop, boots - asos

knew i had to take these photos against the red background, because my outfit is ridiculously black and white! i love this lace dress, it has its own peterpan collar but i decided to add my own black velvet collar to it instead. it was probably a little too cold for this outfit, i should really have worn a coat, but i hate neglecting my favourite clothes just because of the stupid weather!

i did an interview with the lovely phoebe from phoebedoes, check it out here!

rain, rain, go away

cardigan - thrifted, blouse & shorts & boots - topshop

polka dots again, but i will not apologise! they're too good not to wear in every single outfit. i don't have much to say about this outfit - there isn't really anything exciting about it at all!

i might have some pretty exciting news to tell you soon, that seems too good to be true. but if it isn't, i might need some help from you guys!

the return of the stripe

hat and cardigan - h&m, blouse and shorts - topshop, boots - asos

sorry for my blogging absence, but i just haven't been able to take any outfit photos.

this blouse is such a lovely colour, but it's pretty sheer and low cut, something i'm not used to! and i felt the need to wear this cardigan again, as i've been neglecting stripes lately. i used to wear stripes a lot but lately, as you know, they've been rejected in favour of lots and lots of polka dots. but i thought it was time to bring some stripes back into my life.

i'm having a bit of a shopping lull lately, i can't seem to find anything i like enough to buy. i'm hunting for a fairisle/christmas jumper and a great pair of wedges but i just can't find any!
