You know when you buy something and feel like you HAVE to wear it straight away? Or when people buy you lovely things and you want to wear them all at once? This is kinda one of those outfits. The skirt is a new favourite and the watch hasn’t left my wrist since it arrived just after Christmas. I’m starting to get a little bit bored and wanted a change from my Michael Kors, so I opted for Daniel Wellington since their watches are such a nice, classic shape. I love how thin and light it is. Hopefully it’ll give my wrists a break from the bruises caused by the clunky MK bashing against them.
So let me tell you about the skirt. First of all you should know, New Look isn’t a shop I usually tend to venture into. For one thing, the sheer scale of product in most of their stores puts me off. I don’t want to be overwhelmed when I’m shopping. Yeah, I like to rake as much as the next person, but in general I never find anything appealing in there so I tend not to bother even trying. That was until Ella posted a photo on her instagram of a gorgeous floral tapestry dress. I assumed it was vintage but thought it was worth tweeting her to find out where it was from. New Look was the last place I expected her to say! Turns out I wasn’t the only person who wanted to snap one up, and it was already sold out online by the time I checked. Then a few days after Christmas, I was feeling brave and decided to ventue into New Look to see if I could find it. I managed to get my hands on the dress as well as stumble upon this skirt, made from the same fabric! Definitely my favourite festive sale finds. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with a skirt for £6, can you? Now I can’t help but wonder how many other New Look treasures I’ve missed out on!
