Tartan and Creepers.





Crop Top - H&M
Skirt - Supré (In New Zealand)
Cardigan - Charity Shop
Creepers - eBay
Bag - Vintage

Hello lovelies. I sneaked a few days away from blogging in order to recover from my lengthy travels and finally wash off the smell of gross coaches and trains. After 26 hours of traveling in the space of a week I reckon I deserved a bath, and a long one at that. I've been busy sorting things out for my move to France and finally paid the deposit on my apartment which is exciting. I am still having to pinch myself that I've got a place after being let down so many times. The search was long and hard, let me tell ya. The only thing I have to worry about now is getting along with my French housemates using my shameful grasp of the language. I predict a lot of arm waving and pointing.

Here's an outfit that I sported to catch up with my friends at the pub plus my denim jacket because, oh my, it suddenly got so bloody cold up north. I was shaking so much my teeth were chattering. I guess winter really is coming. 

Weather aside, I am absolutely in love with this skirt but never gets as much wear as it deserves. I saw it whilst I was gallivanting across New Zealand last summer and thought it was THE perfect school girl skirt without looking too Britney Spears-esque. It also has pockets which just makes it perfect in my eyes. I can never say no to a good pocket. 

My blog would not be worthy of its name if I was not seen sporting a crop top every so often, and this little black number - from H&M - is worming its way to becoming my favourite. This crop top just fits like a dream and I am so tempted to pick up the other colours before I move to France, but I'm afraid my suitcase just downright refuses to carry anymore. Sigh.  

On a side note, I managed to sit down and film (yes that's right - film) a little haul video for you guys of what I picked up whilst in Devon and what-not. Once I get my head around editing I will be sure to upload that and share it with you wonderful wonderful people. 

As always, thank you so much for reading, commenting and even following my baby blog. 


Because a friend recommended it and I just cannot get enough.

  2. That skirt is fantastic, and I am loving the almost-opaque black tights. I'm a huge fan of opaque black tights in general.

  6. That skirt is a lovely shape and it looks lovely on you :) I really need to invest in more crop tops like this, I have so many high waisted bottoms but my wardrobe is a bit lacking in them right now!
