Oh hello to you all on this very grey and dreary Monday. I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but Liverpool is incredibly miserable today indeed. There were a few times I thought I was going to take off when these pictures were being taken because the wind was so strong. Nevertheless I persevered like the brave little soldier I am. I definitely did not regularly complain to my boyfriend about how cold I was or that I was certain I was getting a blister on my big toe. And my boyfriend definitely didn’t tell me to stop bringing it up every five minutes. Nope, that did not happen. I had a very large and sugary cup of tea when I got home to recover from the whole ordeal.
I’ve been a very busy bee today running around town trying to get things sorted for my blog, sorting out returns, taking pictures, and working on a new journalism related project. I’m very glad to be back home in the warmth with Tipping Point on in the background whilst I write this. I love a good quiz show, (number one fan of The Chase) so this a great way to wind down after a long long day. My day isn’t over yet though as I’m off to play some crazy golf this evening with some friends which I’m very excited about.
As fashion week has been doing the rounds around the world recently, with London Fashion Week going on as we speak, my eyes have been peeled for amazing outfit combos and style inspiration. I’ve wanted to try styling some oriental inspired clothing for a while now, and this shirt has been in my Asos basket for about 3 months now! It’s absolutely gorgeous and I keep thinking about it, but I honestly can’t justify it to myself at the moment. Yesterday I saw a picture on instagram posted by Megan Ellaby (major girl crush) of one of her outfits for fashion week and oh my word it was amazing. I immediately fell in love with the skirt, even just from the slither visible in the picture, and wasted no time in checking where it was from and finding it online. I was expecting it to be from somewhere really expensive which would have broken my heart, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find out it was from New Look! I ran to the New Look first thing this morning and snatched this black version up, which was the only one in the shop, and in my size (my size when I breathe in a bit and suck everything in). It was fate. As well as the blue and black versions, they also have the skirt in pink which is just lovely too.
I paired the skirt with this gorgeous sheer lilac top with ruffles on the sleeves, which very conveniently matches the exact shade of purple in this skirt. I was made up that everything was coming together so well. Obviously it’s way too cold to wear this top on its own, and also it’s see through, so a turtle neck was a must underneath. I love the look of layering turtle necks under things you wouldn’t normally at the moment, so I felt this was a great opportunity to style it. I finished the outfit off with some Primark micro fishnet tights, and my funky silver boots.
Time to scour the web some more for fashion week pics.
Until next time.
