Turn up the lights in here baby...



Top: H&M
Skirt: ASOS
Belt: ASOS
Shoes: Jessica Simpson

I have wanted a pleated maxi skirt for ages and when I saw this one on ASOS I knew I had to have it, however, I wasn't quite prepared for just how orange it would be and I am not sure whether I should keep it or not?  I know that its ridiculously popular - it sold out in about 30 seconds flat and this colour isn't even listed on the website anymore (but if you like the style you can still get it in black here) - but I'm not sure if its very 'me'.  Mind you, since colour blocking is the new trend (how far I can get involved in this since my wardrobe is completely black I don't know...) maybe I should hang on to it!  I decided to parade about in with my Jessica Simpson Dany platforms which are not actually that uncomfortable considering I am practically walking around with tower blocks on my feet.

In other news I am so dreadfully ill.  I still have an absolute mountain of work to do but I can't even seem to look at a page for more than a minute without the spaces between the words becoming swirly patterns.  Urgh I hate it! I am never ill! I'm not letting it stop me blogging, though I am not loving the pictures that are resulting from my germ filled cloud, especially that last one - I look horrific, but I thought that its always helpful to see what something looks like front on.

Should I keep the orange skirt? Also has anyone by any chance seen a nude pleated maxi skirt? I quite fancy purchasing one!

Hi Emily, thanks for your comment on my post.
Congratulations on having a job lined up for after uni! I think when it comes down to it, it's the person not the uni. A name can only get you so far.

Hope you don't feel too ill, you've managed to look great in your photos anyhow! I think you can totally pull that skirt off. It looks great. I just wish we had the weather to match it. xx
