I bought this skirt from Boden just before Christmas, when their sale started, along with these pretty Alice sandals. {Actually, it seems to have been reduced even further now on Boden's site, so now might be the time to snap it up!}

It arrived a little before Christmas eve, and in a fit of tidiness, I popped this away in it's new home in the skirt section of my wardrobe....and promptly forgot about it, until I saw She and Hem's recent post where Jo was wearing the dress version.

I liked this colourway best, and obviously the cute squirrel print is a winner with me. I decided to pick out the red in the print with this cardigan, the boots and the striped print of my top. I added some glittery tights, which I managed to ruin just as soon as I put them on. I seem to only have to touch a pair of tights lately to ruin them.

I'm not sure quite how long these boots have been stacked away in the wardrobe room waiting to be worn, but I know it's more than a year. I snapped them up for a few quid via eBay after *that* sell-out Zara pair was having it's day. And put them away and promptly forgot about them. (Anyone else sensing a theme here?) Quite like them, though. They're really comfy and I'm quite taken with the stud and buckle detail.

That said, I've had quite a few flat shoes days lately so I'm about ready to get back into the killer heels for some more important meetings this week.

  2. Oh no, the dress is sold out in my size, must keep stalking it. I prefer the colours in your skirt, but don't think I'd wear it as often as a dress. How did this wee squirrel cuteness get past me?!!

  8. I have a rule that if I don't wear all my unworn items by the end of 2015, I have to give them away in Jan 2016. My KG Mary Jane's must be worn this year!!
    Your spending ban will definitely help with any more unworn items you may have.
    Love this skirt - it's too cute!

    1. I think I'm definitely going to wear my way through things and if I don't, I'll be getting rid. Ruthless 2015!
