this is just the beginning




skirt: topshop
shirt: romwe*
shoes: office
rings: H&M and JWLRY

I've had this skirt yonks and I've shamelessly never worn it. That's what you get when you buy stuff your not sure about! Its a bit tummy heavy so I did have to save it for a relatively flat stomach day, considering I likefood this is way to few and far between! The shirt is a black version of the pink one I posted about last week. This ones a bit better quality though which Im happy with! Not wearing nails today as I'm possibly getting acrylic glitter tips at some point this week but cant decide if I want to go there again, My nails are already battered from years of acrylic abuse!

And onto a little announcement, I've finally confirmed everything and I'm moving to London on the 20th January! Taken me long enough huh! I'm moving south west. I was going to be going on Friday but I've had to push it back a bit, even though Im actually in London pretty much all week! So expect blogging to be a bit hit a miss over the next week or two while I sort my affairs out! Means I'm going to be around for IMATS and Fashion Week properly this time! So excited!

  7. Yay, congratulations on the move! You must be really excited.
    I love the colour of the skirt, it looks great with the black and white. I really want to get acrylic nails again too but I don't think I can handle the upkeep and the awful state your nails are in when you finally get them removed.

  63. You should defs wear high-waisted/figure hugging things more often! I see you wear a-line shaped/things that are looser on the bottom often but you've got a fab bod so you've no reason to not wear fitted things a bit more. And it makes you look tallerrr. X
