letting the skirt do the talking

Hello, and Happy Monday.
I am having the worst possible day *screams*
so I do hope everyone else is having a somewhat better start to the week.

Thankfully I took photos before my mood turned sour,
my outfit today contains the most black I have worn in quite some time, but with a skirt this patterned, I thought it needed to speak for itself.

I did wear a tuxedo jacket (also black) when I went out,
oddly its not all that cold right now, or at least, I’m not…so I was pretty comfortable.
(Normally I’m the one with her winter coat on from September 1st)





What’s everyone up to this week?
A quiet one for me, rounding off with a Halloween get together with friends on Saturday night.

  1. Ooh, I think this may be one of the first times I have ever seen you with your hair down – it’s lovely. Especially adoring the second picture – love the movement. I’ve got a full week myself – studying, homework, blogging, deadlines…then Halloween! Oh, I still have no clue what I’m going as. Are you dressing up? 🙂

  2. That’s a lovely skirt. Not too bad here just lots of work.

  3. you look beatiful, dear! I love your hair and that skirt is awesome. I wish I had your figure 🙂
    I hope you feel better soon. xxx

  4. The photo of you twirling is so happy! Really, one of my favourite outfits of yours so far.
    I can’t believe you’re in a bad mood now… Cheer up, I did. I had my car window broken last night after fashion week, AND the burglar step with muddy shoes all over the seats AND the rain come in. But what is done, is done.
    Hope you cheer up beautiful!

  5. work work work as always for my week. But im loving that skirt very gypsy-esq very cute on you.

  6. Your skirt is lovely and yes it does speak for itself:)

  7. I hope your day gets better and doesn’t have an impact on your whole week – you deserve to be happy all the time 🙂

    Love this outfit, especially the skirt, it’s magical!

    We have ‘reading week’ at university this week, so no lectures for the next five days – unfortunately I have lots and lots of essays and reading to do…nightmare! But I’m also going to take this week to just really enjoy myself – it’s my birthday on Halloween, so I deserve to have a week of doing the things that I want to do!


  8. I love your skirt! You look so pretty in it and the shape really suits your fab figure! XXX

  9. Lovely outfit, hope you cheer up soon! Bad moods suck!

    My week is again going to be very busy busy busy. And stressful.
    I like the close up pic of yours. I’m guessing you’re quite (too) short to be a model. Otherwise you’d be on Jak&Jil like…like all the time.
