With the sun on my back, its a nice day.

I've discovered that dip hem skirts are brilliant in windy weather. They swish and float about in a Florence-esque way without the constant worry about showing the world your knickers. Unfortunately, my fringe doesn't seem to agree with the wind in the same way... waste of blooming time getting it trimmed the other day judging by today's pictures! 

Anyway... I've been trying to get as much wear out of my Hearts and Bows skirt as possible so it was the lucky skirt of choice on the momentous occasion when I got my legs out for the first time in FOREVER yesterday, so it became friends with my converse and experienced life as part of my casual wardrobe. I bought some new ankle socks in Topshop the other day which I think are possibly the cutest things ever. I do feel slightly like I should be wearing a pink gingham dress and heading back to primary school but I can deal with that. 

Top: H&M, skirt: Hearts and Bows at Ark, Jacket: Topshop, Socks: Topshop, shoes: Converse, Necklaces: Joy/Dorothy Perkins, Sunglasses: Topshop

I'm off to be nosy at the mini festival that's being assembled just across from my balcony. Apparently its a festival for Sky employees. According to google, The Cribs are playing at one of their events somewhere in the country. If its Leeds they're playing I think I'll cry; I'm going to visit one of my besties in Coventry tomorrow so I'll miss a free gig from the comfort of my balcony. Wahhh.

  2. Wind is not my hair's friend...nor usually my skirt's

  3. Ahhh love your outfit! I pretty much wore exactly the same outfit yesterday myself converse and denim jacket too! I wore my black maxi skirt though and I certainly felt like a wooshy woman Florence struting down the street. How sad. And fringes grow back in about 5 mins. Mine always does. It's so unfair.
