What I Wore and What I Didn't.

So yesterday I told you about my Kryptonite skirt and today I have a couple of outfits I created with the skirt. One of them I wore and one of them I didn't. I actually intended on wearing the tshirt instead of the white shirt in the evening, because it seemed a little more laid back. I actually really love these outfits and am glad I didn't give up with this skirt, and also that I managed to get pictures of both outfits. Obviously, the photos of the tshirt and skirt are just going-out snaps from my housemate Beth's birthday- we went out for dinner and then for cocktails.

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen my beehive from Tuesday. It kinds dropped on Tuesday afternoon, but I redid it before we went out and it lasted until Wednesday night! I followed Carrie's tutorial and I think it's awesome. I got so many compliments on it- I'll have to do it more often!

I was talking on Twitter and to Sian the other day about how my style seems to have become quite formal all of a sudden. I call it "job interview chic". I feel like the white-shirt outfit really demonstrates this- I could definitely wear that for a job interview! My style seems to have become quite "dressy"- lots of shirts and blazers and "grown-up" skirts. I'm really enjoying my more "preppy" style- I feel like I almost never wear dresses now and I used to wear them all the time. It's a nice change. An evolution, maybe. The fact is, in a few months time I will be going getting a grown-up job so I need to get used to dressing up more!

  10. I SWEAR I wore like the exact same outfit today. Except I didn't wear a polka dot pencil skirt...I wore a plain black one. ANYWAY regardless, gorgeous SKIRT. So envious. I always wear my pencil skirt with my ankle boots too!

  11. You look amaze, like the preppy/rocky combo with the t-shirt.  I definitely prefer a preppy look.  I hate being under/overdressed for a place or occasion and preppy is perfect for everywhere x

  12. That's definitely an 'interview chic' outfit! It's adorable. I'm loving the top and the polka dot skirt. And those shoes just complete everything. 

    Good luck on your interview!

  16. That green polka dotted skirt looks awesome on you! I love it with the white blouse and perfect little blazer. I like to dress in business casual-ish looks like this too, but I try to mix in real casual outfits along with them because I know I'll be forced to be all business-y soon! Also, the beehive looks awesome!
