This skirt is one of those pieces that never seems to photograph very well, which is a real shame as it is really lovely in real life. With the loafers and the blouse I got a real school girl vibe from this, especially with the plait! I really liked this outfit and it was perfect for a lazy weekend not doing very much... Originally I was going to pair this with my tweedy blazer but it looked far too 'rah' so I thought my coat would be a safer option ;)

Without the coat I looked even younger but sometimes looking young is no bad thing right? I'll be glad of it when I'm 50!
I love a good brown belt!
After our Aussie tutorial I couldn't wait to try this hairstyle again and I added a bit more volume at the roots with my trusty Aussie hairspray...
I think these loafers worked much better with this outfit than the last one I paired them with, the chunkiness of the shoe gave me a bit of height without making my skirt look too short... I know I always seem to be going on about the length of my skirts and dresses but I hate that feeling of risk when you wear a short skirt. When you're as clumsy as I am, the risk of exposure and the subsequent loss of dignity is much higher...

My favourite sunglasses, still going strong almost a year later. This is something of a miracle as I always just chuck them into my bag, drop them on the floor or leave them in my pocket when I sit down so the fact that they are still intact is testament to Accessorize's engineering!
Would you dress like a schoolgirl? Do you like 'ugly shoes'?
