Hey everyone! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Hope you're all feeling suitably loved-up/single-and-fab! I'm currently spending V-Day playing video games with my brother, mourning the absence of my boyfriend who is currently in Berlin for a film festival! ): Tub of Ben & Jerry's for one!
In order to distract myself from my forever-alonedness, I decided to drop in with a new outfit post. Ever since I received this shirt (a Christmas present from my auntie) and this skirt (a gift from Persunmall), I've been dying to wear both of them. Little did I know that I'd actually end up wearing the two together, and being fairly pleased with the result! As magazines and catwalk shows have been telling us consistently over the past few months, the monochrome trend is here to stay for the spring and summer seasons. Being a huge fan of black all year round, I've been making a special effort, as the days get brighter and the weather gets warmer, to take a warmer-toned approach to monochrome - with navy and ivory (as you may remember from my last outfit post). Here, I'm opting for navy again, with my new grid-print skirt from Persunmall. As many of you are probably aware already, I'm a little addicted to A-line skirts, and the shape of this circle skirt is just so flattering, and really swishy! The material is thick enough so as not to crease every time you sit down, yet isn't so heavy that the pleats are weighed down. It's just perfect!
I had been eyeing up this Dahlia shirt for months before I got it, and I have to say that it was well with the wait! Being slightly wary of the cold-shoulder trend due to my relatively broad shoulders, I wasn't sure if this blouse would suit me at all, but I fell in love with it as soon as I put it on. Its gorgeous crochet collar means that it even looks great under jumpers (which is great news for me, considering we're having freak storm weather in Ireland at the minute)!
That's all from me for now! Hope you like my outfit. Let me know what you think - I love reading all your comments! (:
Lots of Love,
