There's a lot of plans going down in Jodie Town at the moment which I cant wait to share, but at present I'm afraid you'll have to settle with a new blog post.

Pencil Skirt: Daisy Street
Crop Sweater: DIY (similar here)
Bag: River Island
Boots: River Island

I'm getting a taste for pencil skirts- maybe its a sign in maturing?

I like how they make my bum really stick out (and my hips), channelling my inner Beyonce. This one from Daiay Street is perfect. I love the mix of black (my comfortable colour) and the contrasting yellow. Its the perfect addition to an all black look. Ive been toying with the idea of buying HUNDREDS more pencil skirts :)

Its a striking skirt but I'll admit its a little hard to wear (tigers are an impossible print to get my head around), this one from ASOS or this from Topshop are two fantastic alternatives.

This skirt I had my eye on for AGES but never actually got round to buying. I liked it buy could never think of how I would wear it and was really worried about the fit. Countless times I've bought pencil skirts for them to be short. That was until Stephanie (from Stephanie Dreams) was selling it on Instagramm, I could trust Stephanie judgement on size (as shes lovely and tall) and I suddenly got a hit of inspiration.

I LOVE ebay, blog sales and things like that. I really take other bloggers judgement on quality (plus I get a sneak look at how they'll wear it).

I wore this outfit to a gig with friends so i wanted something light enough to keep cool in the venue, but -as all my friend other than me smoke- something that would keep me warm outside. Therefore my cropped sweater was perfect.

I'm really happy with how these turned out- I got the PERFECT level of natural and unnatural light really showing off this look. I don't think I will ever manage this level again anytime soon.
