skater girl

I’m having a bit of a love-fest for all things skater at the moment and this Tall Skater Dress from New Look isn’t helping. At Β£12.99 it was too much of a bargain to resist, and like the skirt I picked up a couple of weeks ago the added bit of length stops me flashing my knickers to all and sundry.
I always feel quite girly in skater style skirts and dresses, I love the way they nip in at the waist and then flare out, they seem to cover a multitude of sins and go with just about everything. I wore mine with some Betsy Johnson floral tights and those trusty boots that are only a week old but already a firm favourite. For a bit of glitz I added my sparkly rabbit necklace from Wolf & Moon…I’m finally remembering to actually put jewellery on!

How is it already Thursday? WHERE is my week off going? It’s been lovely, if not somewhat limited but some down time with Mum has been very much appreciated. Another low key day today, I need to rest that foot of mine ready to hit Cabot Circus tomorrow for some serious shopping! I might take the tinsel off the crutches though (oh yes, I went there) and reserve that for the work Christmas party and Blogger meet up next weekend; although there is an outside chance I might not need them by then- fingers crossed pleased!

How is your week going? I’m in the mood to blast some festive tunes, what’s your favourite?

Loving the tinsel work on the crutches too, how much longer are you on them for? Is the foot getting any better? x

  17. You look lovely, skater skirts/dresses are by far the most flattering style to absolutely anyone, there is no shape that cannot pull it off, I’m on the hunt for my third skater skirt somebody stop me

  18. Ooh I’ll need to look out for that dress for my daughter, she’ll love it! It is such a classic pretty shape and you look lovely in it. I always forget to put jewellery on too, I’ve got loads of junk jewellery but wear the same bits day in day out. xx

  19. Utterly love it! Looks beautiful on you xoxo

  20. Its a lovely colour and I like the length of the sleeves, it gives you a great silhouette. I can say though that, sadly, I’m definitely too old for a skater dress πŸ™
    I’ve been playing Chrisas tunes, March of the Cavalry by Jona somebody is my all time favourite, it reminds me of my Dad πŸ™‚
    Have fun shopping and on your blogger meet x

  21. That dress looks amazing on you and I really love the tights with it. Interested to hear that skater style dresses are good for most body shapes, I had always assumed they wouldn’t suit me but perhaps I ought to give them a try.
