Skirt - Primark
Top* - Mint Velvet
Belt - Vintage
Scarf - McQueen
Boots - eBay
Lips - Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Grandest Grape 

Yesterday I treated myself to a day off work which meant I could indulge in a rare lie in before heading to London to attend a few events in the evening. I wore my new velvet tee from Mint Velvet which is incredibly luxe and begs to be stroked, tucked in to the charcoal grey version of that infamous Primark pleated skirt. I am not sure whether I actually like this skirt on me or not to be honest, I find it makes me look a little...wide but I couldn't not buy it when I saw it in store. I fished my McQueen scarf out from hibernation after a long absence which left me contemplating the purchase of a new colour for AW, ideally the dark purple/red one I think. And I continue (and will continue for some time) to swoon over my new eBay boots which have barely left my feet since I got them! They really are perfect, so so comfy and even clink a little when you walk...just like a real cowboy! :)

I hope you have all had great weeks and are looking forward to the weekend - I know I am.

I love this! The rich colour of the top against the silver of the skirt is gorgeous <3

I feel that with the black version, the pleats don't quite sit right. They flare out and make me look bigger than I am too! I just bought the River Island black pleather skater skirt which is much more flattering, but then again not such a gorgeous colour x

You look amazing and your outfit is making me excited for Christmas with the red velvet and shimmery skirt!

I really want a skater skirt but I'm not convinced it will suit my body shape, on the other hand it could be the answer to all my fashion problems.
