Leopard and Knit

I was feeling pretty ill last night and this outfit came to me while I was unable to sleep. I wasn't sure if it would work but I really, really love it. I think it definitely need to the scarf to break it up though. I absolutely love this skirt. If you haven't heard the story, it used to be a dress that my housemate Lauren wore to dress as Snooki for Halloween last year and she gave it to me because she didn't want it. I hated the top bit and it wouldn't really tuck properly into a skirt, so I had it tailored to be a skirt! I also rolled it up a few times here to make it a little shorter. I felt like I was back in school uniform- rolling up my skirt to make it shorter! I am still absolutely loving cosy jumpers and woolly tights. While I think everyone else is sick of winter, I've written a post going up this week on why I love winter fashion!

I finally handed my essays in today- yay! I'm so glad to have gotten them out of the way. I also finished some work for class on Friday so I have all the rest of the week now to work on my dissertations and get my reading done. I also have about a million grad schemes to apply for. But things are sorting themselves out. Finally.

Oh and I installed Disqus. I thought it would be easier to keep on top of my comments because I like being able to reply to your questions. Please let me know if you really, really hate it!

Well, I might go do some reading. And/or curl my hair. Probably the latter.

Have a wonderful day guys!

  3. Ooo I love this, I have a jumper similar to this and I was thinking about wearing it with a flowy skirt but thought maybe it would all look to baggy, but you've convinced me! I'll have to definitely give it a go. Well done on all the work you've been doing, it's such a relief to just hand stuff in and forget about it :)

  4. I just found a leopard printed skirt this morning, and was trying to figure out how to style it! I love how you paired it with a sweater.

  5. I like the look of a sweater that is longer in the back than the front. Especially when the sweater is cropped like yours, looks lovely!

  7. I love the mustard colour with the leopard print skirt!!! I had never thought to combine those two. The scarf is great too, definitely breaks everything up.

  10. Love this color combo on you! I roll some of my skirts up too. There are a couple that should probably just go into the 'alterations' pile since I roll them up every time I go out.

  11. I love Disqus! Yay! It makes everything so much easier. Also, I have to say that everything about this outfit is great, especially the way the sweater fits. I roll my skirts still too, its so necessary for us ladies who have "diminutive stature" ;)

  14. Wow. I absolutely adore this outfit! The shades in the leopard are seamlessly incorporated in the rest of your outfit, and you make animal print look so casually chic. :D Love it.
