White Out

Got another outfit post for you today =) I promise I will do more interesting photos, maybe once I get home because I’ll have places outside to do them then. Here I have the graveyard, but nowhere to put my camera (and I don’t have a tripod) plus everyone walks their dogs in there and people look out over it so I’m too scared to do it!! Maybe one day I will, I’ll steal my dad’s “Gorilla Pod” haha!

Stripy Cardigan: Vero Moda (in Austria)
Sheer Polka Dot Top: Primark
Brown Belt: Zara
Denim Skirt: Chilli Pepper (I’ve had it for yearssss!!)
Black Tights: M&S
Grey Knee High Socks: Urban Outfitters
Brown Boots: Barratts
I look a bit flustered haha, also my hair is messed up because I’d just been wearing a hat outside!! This denim skirt, my goodness, I’ve had it since I was 13, that’s 7 years ago now!! And I used to wear it a lot too! Like everyday! It was my “party skirt” when I was 13 or 14, so I used to wear it to school discos and young farmers’ parties (which took place in fields!). Now it’s become more of a slouchy everyday skirt, but it’s still a staple of my wardrobe, even though I don’t wear it as much now. I did buy another denim skirt once, but it just can’t live up to this beauty.
These boots are my boots from last winter, I really like them and they still have a lot of grip (very useful in the snow, especially if you’re me!), but the inside heel lining has torn on both and the next layer rubs really badly so it gives me blisters, hence why I’m wearing socks under them. They actually rubbed so badly last year they made holes in 3 pairs of socks! I know I should have returned them but I’m too lazy, and I would have had no shoes to walk there in!!
I finalllllyyyy managed to post my parcels today (Clothes Swap girls, your clothes are on their way!!). And I sent off my shoes I sold on eBay. I was sad to part with all that money though =( The shoes actually cost more to send than I listed for them so that was annoying =( But I knew the Clothes Swap ones would be expensive since I was sending them internationally, and I wanted them tracked because I don’t want my clothes lost!
I managed to return my library books too, and pick up a book I had reserved weeks ago at the library, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, which I am very excited about reading. I actually started it on the bus!!
Oh and I am very excited because I knew that the first British Forever 21 had just opened in Birmingham recently, which is about a 3 hour train journey (or maybe more) from here, but I was planning on going sometime, but then I realised, of course that meant it had a UK website now so shipping will not cost a thousand pounds or whatever it is, sooooo I’m right now planning my order on there, yaaaayyyy!! It’s free shipping over £50, and I’m up to £64.50 so far. I know I shouldn’t be spending money, but I’ve never had this opportunity before!! I’m ordering a few Christmas presents too so it’s not that bad!

    I too like to wear M&S tights. I find them to be good quality, fit and wear well and are reasonably priced.
