Pink Monochrome

My Mum bought me this skirt while I was still committed to my shopping ban (ahem). When I saw it on ASOS I just fell in love, but it turns out it's yet another Kryptonite piece! It's a really unusual shade of light coral so it's not bright enough to colour block with bright colours, but not pastel enough to wear with mint green or light blue. I decided to try it with this nude top (minus the sequin collar, which I took off) and yet again, my nude jacket. I apologise for the fact that this top is quite see-through. O hai bright pink bra! Oh and if you recognise these boots, it's because they're the same as my black Tesco ankle boots. I just love 'em.

Wow, can anyone else not believe it's March? March is going to be the craziest month. I turned my calendar over today (to a new panda, yay!) and almost every day has something on it- eek! The dance show is in 2 weeks and I'm super excited about it but I have a lot of work to do! A couple of my dances need a lot of practice before the show! I also have just 3 more weeks of uni left so I have my ACS dissertation to finish, a draft of my English to do and work on my Reading and Popular Culture essay! But I do have a lot to look forward too- #ldnlunch on Saturday (are you going? Let me know!) which if you haven't seen it on twitter, is a big blogger meet-up in London this weekend, then I'm straight back to Birmingham for my bestie Sarah's birthday and seeing all my best friends who are coming up especially, then I have my interview about San Francisco next week and my birthday in four weeks! Eeek! I can't wait to turn 22, and I'm going to see the pandas in Edinburgh for it! Best birthday ever!

And finally, just a big thank you to you all for being amazing. I have so much fun chatting to other bloggers about everything from getting enough protein as a pescatarian to what to wear to what to wear for my date (which went really well by the way!). You guys are the reason I keep doing this, even when I've just danced for 3 hours and I have a 9am class in the morning. Blogging is the reason I have to do a 12 hour day on campus tomorrow so I can spend Saturday meeting other bloggers. It's the reason I run my iPhone battery down from reading blogs every.single.day. But I wouldn't change it for the world, so thank you. I also apologise if things are a little quiet around here for the next few weeks. Like I've said, I've got loads of work to do, and certainly the week of the dance show I won't have time to update, but hopefully once term is over, and definitely after my exams in May, I'm all yours again. Thank you for always being amazing.

  2. This tulip skirt is so cute! I have been looking for the right one to add to my wardrobe and just can't settle on one! I recently discovered River Island but shipping it to the states (Texas) is pricey! They have the most darling stuff- so jealous you have easy access to it over there!

  4. This top is SO so pretty, I love the sweet pattern of it. And it looks so gorgeous with this skirt, I really do love this look. So wonderful together, and I actually think this top would look awesome with mint and blue! Have fun meeting up with the bloggers :)

  7. The skirt is a really pretty colour, but I can see why it would be awkward to style. How have they styled it on the site? It might give you an idea of what colours might work with it. I'm guessing you want something more interesting than resorting to white/black/grey with it. 
    Thanks for so being so nice on Twitter, by the way. I promise I'm not usually one of those 'I AM SAD. GIVE ME ATTENTION!" tweeters. I'm so new to the blogging community, and it is quite scary trying to get in, as so many of the bloggers I like best all know each other (or seem to). It's a big like being at school and wanting to play with the 'big girls'. Anyway, my point is, it's nice when 'the big girls' are nice. I appreciated it.
