Skirt: Topshop//Top and necklace: Forever 21//Shoes: UO//Rings: Forever 21 and Topshop

Slightly awkward photos- you know how sometimes they nearly all come out terrible, or for some reason all your poses look stiff, today I had both.

So I've waved D off for the stag weekend (his sister's getting married next month), which will involve in no particular order clay pigeon shooting, lots of Jagermeister, dirt biking, Hooters and Megabuses.
I bought this suede skirt because it was £10 in the Topshop sale, and I think I can see why. When I hiccuped, the top popper undid itself, when I bent down, the bottom two did.. where is my modesty?

This is what happens when the doorbell rings...

  1. Lovely outfit! I've seen so many bloggers with this skirt, and it makes me wish I'd bought it cos I was considering buying it but I didn't in the end! However, your comment about the poppers coming undone has made me feel a little better about not buying it :P

  2. Lovely outfit but that top is gorgeous, it's so sweet and dreamy! I was really impressed with Forever 21 when I got down to London - top's like these really explain why!

  22. Such a pretty outfit! I felt like buying that skirt too but the length wasn't the length I'd normally wear. I wouldn't expect Forever 21 to dream up a necklace like that.. Seems I'll be needing a trip up to London sometime soon..

  23. Great outfit, that skirt is lovely :) xx

  25. oh i love your lace top!!!! it is so pretty and the colour of your skirt is lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh! This is one of my favourite outfits of yours dearest! I especially love the top, but anything lacy automatically draws me in, one of my girly tendencies I suppose. Your letter is being written today, and then off it goes to make it's way to you, terribly terribly excited!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your cat is so cute :-)! I really love your skirt, but I am scared to wear a skirt with buttons down the front for exactly the reasons you described, I'm quite absent minded too so I probably wont notice that my skirt buttons were unpopping. Love your top too, it's so cute :-).

  40. I love that skirt, I just cant stand button up skirts like that, they NEVER stay buttoned on me. Also, your shoes are adorable!! And so is your kitty :)

  41. Hello :) I love the name and header of your blog, very cute. I was also going to buy this exact skirt in the Topshop sale! I decided on a denim 70's skirt instead, after reading your description of the buttons I'm glad I did! Cute shirt and necklace too :)

  42. I laughed aloud at your cat. What a cutie! You look lovely in this outfit, shame about the unstable skirt, perhaps you could walk upright for the whole day...
    I also just realised the tiny tiny wishbone on your necklace, what a great find!

    P.S Just noticed my blog listed on your blogroll and I'm so chuffed I kind of can't stop grinning like an idiot :) :)! Thanks so much rachel, i'm honoured :'-)
