Gone to Italy, BRB...

As I have packed all of my favourite clothes into my suitcase ready for my holiday*, I had to  search through the remainder of my clothes to find something to wear this morning. I found this Motel t-shirt which I had in my goody bag at the Brum Blogger Meet and decided to pair it with my new pleather skirt. My sister wasn't impressed with the fact I "looked like a groupie" but I liked the slightly edgier look it gave to an otherwise plain outfit... I normally favour a girlier look but I was determined to overcome my fear of pleather! 

Top: c/o Motel, skirt: Topshop, shoes: New Look. 
Lil has a fantastic skirt that is very similar and I have always been jealous of how good she looked in it so when I saw this in Topshop I snapped it up. It's a size bigger than I would normally wear but it means I can wear it on my hips otherwise it would be indecently short! 


This has got to be the first time I have worn bright lipstick in a while too but this outfit was calling out for a little something extra and the swipe of red was it! 


The skirt looks fairly grey in this picture but it's definitely black in real life! I really like this outfit, it is so easy and comfy but the red lipstick and leather definitely made it look less slobby.  The skirt I am definitely going to get a lot of use out of this A/W, I imagine it will look equally good with jumpers, chunky tights and my new boots as it does with a simple tee. 

What unusual outfits have you worn recently? How do you break out of your comfort zone?

*I am getting so so excited for my holiday now but fear not, I have organised some guest posts and Frills 'n' Spills will be playing host to some amazing  bloggers over the next week, so keep your eyes peeled!

That skirt looks ace on you, I've seen loads of people with leather skirts recently and really want one! I bought a floral dress recently which is totally not what I'd usually wear but I actually really like it, maybe because it's different? xx

That skirt is lush, think with some cool tights in the winter and a rock tee or even a cute blouse to girlie it up a little. x
