Outfit of the Day: Burgundy Midi Skirt & Primark Jumper


Good lord, I look like a cankled idiot. OH WELL.

Apart from apparently developing cankles overnight, I’m excited to be heading out for some dinner and this is the outfit I chose to put on my body. I absolutely love high necked/turtle neck jumpers at the moment and this one is actually from Primark (isn’t everything I own?). It’s not the best fit (a little on the baggy side) but it is suuuper comfy and goes with pretty much everything. It’s slightly cropped in that just-above-the-belly-button-I’ve-time-traveled-to-1992 way, which is surprisingly nice. It’ll still be in stores now (I only bought it about a month ago!) and I think it was around the £8 mark. Or maybe £10.

My skirt is really really old, I bought it for my 21st birthday night out in the hope that a midi skirt would make my life less tragic. It must be a magic skirt, because I have a job and a house now! There’s not too much else to say about my wizard skirt, apart from the fact I love the colour and it’s a bit of a wardrobe staple.

I teamed my cankles top and skirt with a signature gold chain, weird mother of pearl ring and my favey favey new boots. Which are also Primark. C’est la vie.


And here is my little face. There seems to be panic in my eyes and I don’t know why, sob. I absolutely addoooreeeeeee this lipstick, which is Kate Moss for Rimmel shade 04. Other than that, I have my new Seventeen eyebrow kit (read about it here!) on my wonky eyebrows and some eyeliner and what not.

accessoriesWe can ignore my strange pale hands for the most part, although I do have my new suede nail varnish on. That doesn’t look anything like suede but it is a lovely metallic/matte colour anyway! And these badboy boots ARE MY FAVOURITE THINGS EVER. I’ve worn them pretty much constantly since I bought them at the weekend. They’re comfy, sturdy and have enough of a heel/detail to not look like lesbian boots. HURRAH.

What do you think of this outfit? Yay or nay?? (PLEASE NOT NAY).

      Thanks 🙂 I love burgundy, such a useful colour! I used to have bright red hair and used to be super sad I couldn’t wear burgundy without looking like a lunatic! xxxxx

    YEYYY for your outfit., with or without (non-existent) cankles! You work them gurrrrl.
    You look gorgeous! I saw those jumpers t’other day and sadly bypassed them…now regret my decision gawd damn it!

    Also need that skirt to solve all life issues, if it’s stolen off your washing line at any point soon, err…it wasn’t me.

      Aww thank you sexy lady! This has made my day, you wonderful human being! The jumpers are really lovely – just not quite as tight fitting as I’d like! Super super comfy though 🙂

      I definitely won’t suspect you… at all….
