I might be a little late to the party but here's my entry to Boohoo #globalstyler campaign, representing my home on Essex (UK) showing off my amazing and favourite skirt from Boohoo the box pleated leather look skater skirt. I'm not lying I love this skirt as I've worn it here, here, here, here and about 50 million other times!! I'm exaggerating but I really love this skirt.
Below is my Boohoo style but why not enter yourself for a chance to win an amazing trip fir two to the fashion destination of your choice!! I'm INCREDIBLY lucky as I've been to a lot of places (as my parents always choose experience over buying us "stuff") which includes Tunisia, Egypt, Corfu, Cyprus, Turkey, Cuba, Spain, Portugal, and France to name a few but my favourite was visiting New York- and I would LOVE to go back!

My one tip- write your "home" in felt tip or something as I wrote mine in biro and it can't be seen!
I went for a monotone look but oh so me. Of course I HAD to pair my skirt with a crop top (otherwise you might miss my rolls!!) In this case it's a t-shirt from one of my boyfriends bands knotted into a crop top. Paired with my new white faux leather jacket I searched high and low for (after 8 failed eBay attempts and 3 store returns) and showing off my DIY the studded socks.
Jacket: River Island
Tee: one of my boyfriends bands (at present he is in 3)
Creepers: Camden Market (similar here)
Lipstick: Wine- Rimmel
Boohoo do an amazing selection of skater skirts but it's their leather ones that catch my heart- favorites being my version here but also the second here and third here.
You're probably wondering where I wore this look- to my local fashion capital London!
I love London, especially London Fashion Week and Camden but I decided to go somewhere different this trip and Chris took me on an adventure to London I've never seen before.
First off was Leicester Square to walk to Trafalgar Square (stopping off at the M&M store) for tea and scones which were bigger than my fist in the Crypt under St Martin's in the Field. It was fantastic!! Go there! Really it's fantastic sitting in the corner of the Crypt (our obvious choice) even the floor is cool.
We didn't buy any M&Ms we just went to look.
Then we went to the Natural History Museum. I've never been before BUT I HAD having such an amazing time looking at the dinosaurs we barely saw anything :-( guess that's next month's date ;-) I'm not joking there was a lot if couples in the blue route (cue constant jokes from me and Chris). it was really informative and sort of told you information while asking questions sort of "this is what evidence shows but this might be right as we have evidence for this as well". Are dinosaurs cold blooded or warm blooded? Is this what their skin was like? Plus it was all free (although we gave a massive donation).
Apparently the NHM was built as a museum- its massive!
He lights up and roars with donations.
These little guys where on all the arches from floor to celling.
The arms of this dinosaur is the only part they've found- scientists don't know what the rest of the dinosaur looks like.
My hot date
the T-rex moves, it got a bit creepy after a while.
Me and Chris ;-)
I wasn't the only one enjoying it.
My spirit animal.
Then we walked home via Knightsbridge window shopping (this cool dude awaited us), down Southbank that's amazing I the dark and home for noodles.
There is so much to do in London if you enter defiantly consider it as the destination :-)
