Ive been very naughty these last two days and been off sick. Truthfully my legs were getting worse, and 10 days without sleep eventually my parents forced me to my GP. The bites are infected but I've finally got relief from the itching although they still sting like mad. My legs were swollen and an angry red colour (which made me feel my days of bare legs were behind me) but they've gone down a LOT. They're more pink now and my ankle actually looks like an ankle.

The reason I've been naughty is usually I would have gone into work and struggled against exhaustion but I didn't, mostly because I needed to get some sleep/peace/relax but partly because I've been treated like dirt at work recently and i wanted them to miss me- I'll find out tomorrow if they have.

To try to feel better about my legs I bought something I've been after FOREVER- the perfect black skater skirt.

Skirt: Topshop
Sheer crop top: Fashion Union
Lip gloss: Rebel by MAC

I've been searching for the perfect black skater skirt everywhere- and I know they're EVERYWHERE but I wanted the perfect style. I was tempted by this one from Internacionale (as I love my grey one) and this one from Boohoo (again I love my leather look skirt in the same style). In the end I picked this one from Topshop because its high waisted- and I can't resist something high waisted.

I wore this Saturday evening for bridesmaid duties (cue "name place sign" bingo- my older sister decided my boyfriend had the best name) and is just a really comfortable outfit. Especially paired with no jewellery what so ever (a very rare thing) the only accessory is my crown and lashings of lip gloss. Last month I had never tried gloss now I can't get enough of it.

Thank you everyone for the awesome feed back on my "how I wear" posts- I've actually got another slightly different how I wear coming soon and loads if other posts :) plus what do you think of the settings for my latest few posts? I've moved rooms (much bigger) so now I have a cool white wall for rainy days.

  1. Love this look, that skater skirt really is perfect! And I think your setting for this is lovely, I wish I had a white wall for mine!


  2. I know what you mean about finding the perfect skirt. I'm still hunting! This one is lovely though, I adore it on you with your crop top :)
    Hope your legs get better! Sounds painful and like you could use a day off anyhow

  3. I love your skater skirt. I feel like that's such a flattering silhouette in a skirt! And what happened to your legs? Sounds a lot like a demon is trying to infiltrate your body, but your GP probably knows better (I clearly watch too many horror movies LOL).


  4. I love the skirt, you are so sexy girl!!!
