Shirt: Topshop//Skirt: H n M//Bag: Primark//Shoes: New Look



I know, I know, I am on some sort of shopping ban but I saw this skirt in H n M and couldn't let it pass- I've been on the lookout for something like it for ages- (p)leather, not too long, not too short... so I'm happy (bank account less so).

We nearly got the flat sorted this weekend (finally) although we can't find all the screws and things for the bed, so we're still just sleeping on a mattress. And we don't have phone/internet/TV yet, or a functional cooker.. We spent all yesterday trying to put a little (but heavy!) shelf unit thing on the wall, and after about a million hours, we gave up and it now sits on the floor. A combination of dodgy walls, bad DIY and short tempers mean it was better that way. We do have several dents in our prized floor.

Here's the stairs now though :)

  1. Ohhh your house is really coming along nicely! Haha I take it that you and D had some Ikea furniture assembling fun? Some days I just want to put up all of my furniture for sale and replace it all with Ikea goodies...ohhh Ikea...<3

    Also, I'm glad to see a new post from you, I couldn't help but wonder how you were all going with the riots and everything. I've been watching the news and reading the papers and it looks so scary...

  4. I really like your stairs, you did such a great job in painting them - how did you manage to get it so straight - If I did it it would be all wonky as I'm not the most artistic!

    I love your outfit, your skirt is lovely and it goes really well with your top. I was going to get that bag from Primark!

  16. Oh my gosh, it's absolutely charming!!! The stairs are gorgeous...and despite what you said about the outside, I think it looks incredibly cute with the little blue door. The inside looks like it's really coming along beautifully as well. As for your outfit...the skirt is perfection on you. I don't think I could have passed it up either:) Best wishes while you settle in!!
