Well hello there.
It seems like an age since my last post. This week has been pretty manic for me, and quite frankly I have had bigger fish to fry than worrying about blogging. I am still internet-less and will be for the next week or so, but I am not going to fret and simply embrace this little blogging hiatus. 


I have however manage to seize a brief tryst with the online world to bring you this outfit post. I bought this skirt several weeks ago now but this has been the first opportunity I've had to wear it. It all felt very French chic when teamed with my breton stripe top and white blazer. A fellow blogger, Kelly, also purchased this skirt the same time as me and I am really looking forward to seeing how she styles it as I am a true fan of her blog and outfits. My wedges are possibly one of my most beloved shoes I own - a discounted purchase when I use to work at Faith Shoes back in the day, about 8 years ago! My scarf was another wonderful vintage find from London's Brick Lane, and is serving more than just an aesthetic purpose here - perfectly concealing 7 weeks worth of horrible roots. My hair is really a state at the moment but I have been so consumed recently, I haven't had time to address the mess. My first job tomorrow is to book a hair appointment and pronto! Although I don't think I will be going red again - you can have too much of a good thing and I fancy something a little less high maintenance!


I hope you have all been well. 
A quick hello and thank you to all my new and old readers. Thank for sticking around and I promise I will be back blogging with a flourish as soon as circumstances allow...

Kelly Jones said...

Oh, you look so amazing! My skirt is slightly different, it doesnt have that lush shiny bit around the waist, although I wish it did now...lol damnit! I have a thick striped top with 3/4 sleeves that I might try mine with after seeing this! Other than that, I've only worn it with this sheer yellow blouse, I did take pics but wasn't happy with them LOL so I'll have to try harder especially now I've got a mention on your lovely blog! Thank you gorgeous :) xo.

You girls are so lucky with your H&M finds! I bet if I would like to buy this skirt (and I think I want to ;) ), I'll have to go through the whole saga like the last time. Not looking forward to it. ;)
