After a weekend of resting I was hoping to be feeling better and back to normal. Unfortunately I’m still housebound and just about ready to start climbing the walls. I’ve read the paper, read my book, watched more Gossip Girl and thrown myself into some writing. Trying to rest is definitely hard work. I’m just not used to sitting still for so long. I’ve spent the last few days in PJs, (which sounds great but trust me, the novelty is wearing off), so I thought it might make me feel a bit better to get dressed today. And because my brother was home from college this afternoon, managed to talk him into taking some outfit photos for me. Since I’m not feeling great, I opted for a few of my most recent favourites to cheer me up: my new gingham skirt and a fluffy jumper. Hey, if I’m spending practically all day in bed, hugging a hot water bottle then I need to feel nice and cosy, right?
After I posted the photo of this gingham Topshop skirt since I posted about it on instagram and in my last blog post. It seems like most places are sold out in smaller sizes but my dad actually got mine from the petite section (so maybe they’re still in stock in some stores?) It’s not a section I’d normally get things from because I always just assume the skirts would be too short but I’m 5’4″ and I’d say this is the pretty much the perfect length! Although it’s not had a proper (outdoors) outing yet, I can see myself living in this for the next few weeks.. Although as it’s wool and I’m allergic, I’ll be a bit more limited when the warmer weather comes and I don’t have tights on to stop by legs being irritated by the fabric!
