When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong?

You know when you tell a little kid not to do something they do it even more? Yeah. Well two of these items are new, despite being on a shopping ban. Yeah I haven't done too great at that. I tried and then I kinda failed. I definitely will give it another go- during my next 30 for 30 maybe (when will that be, Kendi?!). But yeah. Epic fail.

I was contemplating sending this skirt back, but I ended up falling in love with it. I just love midi skirts! I think it's a great way to incorporate my summery pastels without going overboard just because we're having some nice weather in February! I'm so glad the weather is nice though because it means I can get my collection of midis out- I find them really awkward to wear when it's colder because I don't have a short enough coat and they poke out of the bottom. However, it's been so nice lately I've been going coat-less. Be prepared to see this jacket a lot. With all these summery pastels around, it's perfect. I'm thinking of trying to wear midi skirts every day this week, but I'm not sure if I'll have a chance to photograph them everyday. I hate not having time to blog, and I swear it makes me shop more. I don't wear anything new if I'm not photographing my outfits, so I end up with loads of unworn items in my wardrobe! I can't wait to finish uni!

I've had a really great day today! I don't really know why, but I've just gotten so much done. I've finished my first draft of one of my dissertations- all 6000 words of it, I sorted loads of new things out with my blog and made some great connections, I went to see one of my teachers about another essay am feeling good about my topic and I had two hours of dancing tonight. Good day! I am so excited to finish uni. I'm stressed about all my essays and all the work I have to do, but I'm excited for the dance show and to get all my work finished. And I'm so excited for the summer. My SF interview is next week and I can't wait! I also have my date tomorrow night, #ldnlunch on Saturday, my friend Sarah's birthday and all my friends coming up on Saturday night and a full day of dance rehersals on Sunday. Busy Charlotte!

  1. I'm pretty much in love with your whole style in general! This outfit is simply amazing though. I'm starting to really love midi skirts too! Also, you pink leather jacket is perfect. I always wanted a pastel colored leather jacket!

  4. Oh I love this skirt! This whole outfit is cute. If I remember correctly, Kendi wrote once that she was not going to do the 30 for 30 any longer but if anyone else wants to do it they were welcome to. But I could be wrong! 

    XOXO, Lindsey

  5. Love the midi on you.  And the fact that its pleated!  I was searching for a good black midi for a while but never got around to finding the right one.

  6. I'm so glad you didn't send the skirt back because it's GORGEOUS! I love how you paired it with a cute pale pink top and jacket. Such a romantic combination!

  8. I agree - don't send back the pleated skirt, it's stylish and smart.  Having seen this outfit f2f yesterday, I was deeply impressed that you carried off the pale colours so well.  I think most of us with complexions on the fair side would have looked washed out.  What's the secret?! And there was me (one of the teachers mentioned in C's post from Monday) looking like I'd just stepped off a hiking trail...Enjoying the blog a lot!

  9. That skirt is so lovely! I am exactly like you- as soon as I'm not allowed to do something, I just want to do it more!

    Well done on finishing your first draft! I only started my dissertation 6 weeks before it was due in. I actually ended up with a really, really good mark but it was the most stressful time of my life!

  14. I'm the worst with shopping bans - if I outright ban myself, I have something new the next day, lol. But if I just try not to buy things, then I buy way less. I love this outfit. That skirt & jacket are gorgeous!
