(Outfit Details: Jumper - Zara, Skirt - Primark, Hat - Primark)
First of all, can you believe that this skirt is from Primark?! I was browsing my local branch a few weeks ago, spotted it whilst on an escalator and ran over to it, only for my friend to also grab it the same time at me - yes, it really is that good. Although the photograph doesn't do it justice, it's most lovely pastel duck-egg colour and made of faux-leather. Now, as someone who is incredibly conscious of being pear-shaped, I tend to stay very clear of skirts which are figure-hugging as such. But I couldn't bring myself to put it back on the rail, and after trying on one which is actually a size smaller than my usual choice (I'm rather awkwardly a size 9), I knew it needed to be mine. I'm not going to lie, I definitely won't be wearing this skirt whilst eating my body weight in cake (a hobby of mine) but still, I just had to buy it.
And this jumper is something I found hidden away at the bottom of a pile in Zara's sale a little while ago. As I hadn't had the chance to visit the sale until a few weeks after it had started, I didn't really have my hopes up very high. However, whilst I was mooching around, the monochrome heart-print of this jumper caught my eye in an instant. I thought it had been mis-placed (as I hadn't seen any others), however, I was very surprised to see it marked down in the sale to only £9 - score! It is pretty cropped, but seeing as I wear mainly high-waisted skirts, I can see it fitting rather nicely in my wardrobe.
