A New Skirt OOTD

Hi all,

Sorry I’ve missed a couple of posts, I haven’t been feeling too well recently and have had a few days off work. Anyway last week I managed to rustle up myself a new skirt out of some gorgeous fabric I found so I thought I would show it off in an OOTD post!

The fabric is a gorgeous wool blend with a diamondish pattern in pinks, blues and purples! It really reminds me of a wet city in the evening too, as if you were looking into a puddle seeing the reflection of the buildings and cars and people all around.

I did my eye makeup to match and I used both my Urban Decay and Smashbox palettes, both of which I’ve previously reviewed on here.

I’m also wearing my new lipstick which is Blue Velvet by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I had the shade Redrum and I adored the shade and formula, it’s now completely empty now. I felt like something different so I went with this beautiful bright blue. I think it’s a really wearable shade, particularly on me, it’s not too bright and I already wear a lot of blue.

I took my photos at work today as there isn’t any sunlight left by the time I get home anymore. I’ve also reviewed the sweater I am wearing here, this is still an all time favourite and I hope to get at least one more colour of it for winter this year.

I actually made this skirt so that I could wear the pattern two ways. The above pictures show the colours going vertically, and below horizontally.

It isn’t a hug difference but I really liked how both ways looked so I wanted the option! Also I still get a pocket whichever way I wear it which is handy.

I was rushing out of the house and I decided I wanted a bit of jewellery so I chose this amazing Jubly-Umph necklace. I bought it last year I think and it is ‘The Teardrop Lighthouse’ a limited edition necklace which I am so glad I bought. I really love lighthouses and this is such a sturdy but delicate looking piece.

I love putting large circular pockets on my skirts! I find patch pockets much more convenient and it adds a point of difference.

I’m wearing my recently reviewed Columbine stockings in the shade Misty. Also apologies for the thread on my leg, had I known I would have removed it! Also I love heeled boots with some fur cuffs as the weather gets colder, I’ve gone through this is my 2nd or 3rd pair and it’s just a style I am obsessed with. This pair is getting a little tattered though so I need to start looking for some more.

Sorry it wasn’t too exciting today. I’ll try to get something up for Thursday otherwise it might just end up being next Monday. I really like this skirt and this outfit, it was perfect for a snug day as it was quite chilly finally! As an added bonus I’ll leave you with a picture of my foundations! It is May the Month of Lingerie so follow my on Instagram for daily lingerie pictures for this month. I’ll try to do a big compilation post at the end of the month too!
