our future is far..

another item i was after on my last trip to primark was the beach scene print dress which seems to have been an instant hit on all of the blogs i have noticed it on..until i went to the store i wasn't aware there was a skirt version as well..sometimes i'm not sure about skirts, i tend to favour dresses, as i then don;t have the issue of how on earth to dress them, don't have to find a top that goes with the colour, in a shape to complement the shape of the skirt etc..i wasn't all that happy with the way this outfit turned out..the skirt itself is a fine shape, i just get really self-conscious with my own shape when it comes to wearing skirts..
i went with another primark item, this sequinned top which has probably been sitting in my wardrobe unworn for a year or so now, as i;ve had no idea what to wear that with either..
i purchased the topshop yellowy tights recently with a giftcard, and was quite pleased with them, they are a cotton mix, so thick but not as warm as wool ones..also, in the end i didn't wear the shoe boots pictured, but a flat pair of blue suede pixie boots, which came from the new look sale, as i wasn't convinced about the tights with heels, not sure why..
i like the pattern of the skirt, not so sure about the fit of it though..think it's another on the 'sell on' list this week..


  1. I really like the shape of it on you. I know you were saying about feeling self conscious in it, but I reckon a tucked in top and a little cardi would look great with it and be really flattering. Not that the tshirt looks bad cos it doesn't, but it looks a bit big on you!

  2. I really like that skirt. Is the waist quite nipped in? Maybe a more fitted top or a top tucked in? x

  3. Ohh I didn't know there was a skirt version. I saw the dress but thought it was overpriced for a one season wonder (from Primark). Gosh I am getting cheap. LOVE the skirt, especially with those fab tights x

  4. I didn't know this came in a skirt. It's lovely. I like how you have teamed it but I know what you are saying. Dresses are so easy cos you can just throw them on with little thought. x
