Firstly, my soap and glory giveaway ends in a number of hours, so make sure you ENTER IT HERE!
Wow it's early this morning! Since I'm driving into university from home this week, I am having to wake up super early to make sure I can get there in time and avoid the bulk of the rush hour traffic, but it's completely worth it to have those lovely home comforts for a while! I actually can't believe how nice the weather is already this morning, and it isn't even 7am! It makes such a difference waking up and leaving the house in the light. Fingers crossed this weather marks the start of Spring. Today, I've got another OOTD post for you (told you I keep my promises!) I bought this skirt a few weeks ago, and I have had so much wear out of it! I am such a huge fan of quilted fabrics, and as soon as I saw this skirt I knew I had to try it on!
In the top picture, this skirt is teamed with a simple plain black vest from Next (of which my wardrobe is full), they really are such a staple item that you can wear with so many different outfits that if you don't have some I really suggest you go and stock up! They only cost £4.50 and come in every colour you can imagine. The second picture shows the skirt with my lovely faithful Topshop blouse. Unfortunately, I bought this blouse a few seasons ago, so it is no longer in stock, but Topshop have some absolutely lovely blouses and shirts in store now, so I'm sure it won't be difficult to find a replacement and recreate this look.I love wearing this blouse and skirt together, as the burnt orange/ brown in the shirt really compliments the orange detailing within the skirt.
Sometimes it can be hard to know how to dress this time of year, as Spring is approaching and the weather is nice, but there is still a breeze and a cold chill in the air... and in Manchester it certainly is not warm enough to walk round in short sleeves and no tights just yet! Therefore, adding the blouse and tights is a perfect way to make this Summery look slightly more appropriate for this time of year, and as it (hopefully) continues to warm up, the blouse can be swapped for a string vest or a crop top and the tights can be removed!
