Jurassic Park.





Top - Primark
Skirt - Topshop
Belt - Vintage
Shoes (Creepers) - Ebay
Bag - Converse (Present)

So I actually wore this outfit on Monday when I traipsed around Leeds with my younger brother as he had a teacher training day. We needed to pick him up some new clothes as the boy is growing so damned fast I'm getting hand-me-downs from him! Wasn't a hugely successful shopping trip on my behalf but I did buy a delicious bath bomb and soap from Lush (oh how I love that place). 

When I was a kid I had two main historical interests: ancient Egypt and dinosaurs. Literally would spend all day reading books about dinosaurs and what not. Having said that, I remember hiding myself behind an arm chair at my neighbours house when we were watching Jurassic Park on video for the first time so I never actually saw the full film until years later. Nevertheless, Jurassic Park 1, 2 and 3 are now firm favourites. 

Anyway, point being, this top is awesome. I have worn this top to death and I only bought about 6 months ago. I will literally force it to go with everything, as you can see by my pairing it with a floral skirt. I got this skirt in the Topshop sale for a tenner or so but have only worn it on nights out as it has two slits up each side which you can't really see in the photos but nevermind. I thought that pairing it with a T-shirt and creepers (which you also can't see - bad photography skills) would tone the skirt down and make it a much more casual item. I want to start wearing this skirt casually a lot more so watch this space. 

Just want to say a huge thank you to anyone that's reading this blog and commenting/following. It's really rad, and you're rad. So thanks for being rad, haha. Do leave links to your blogs so I can check them out too and leave a cheeky comment! 




Because I think this song and video are fab.

  3. YESSS my brother and i were OBSESSED with dinosaurs. We'd decorate his whole room with dinosaur toys and posters- they were just so stinkin cool and kind of magical to our kid brains. And this kind of outfit is my favorite- tshirt + midi. It's elegant but casual all at the same time.

    And thank you for the compliment about my writing- that made my day amazing :D

    1. Ah you are very welcome! And dinosaurs were the best, hands down. I used to avoid midi skirts cos I'm short but they're fast becoming my favourite!
