My week...

This last week I have realised I have been incredibly lazy, and I need to kick this habit! 
I've have had quite a good week though, as I received my results from my first semester at uni, which I did well at and I am very pleased with the results.
Seeing as on the deadline day I was rushing around like a crazy person! I managed to get the work in before the deadline, however I was a little nervous about the quality of work I had produced. However according to my results I did very well, I do want to push myself a bit more this semester. 

With modules called 'the fashion muse' and 'the fashion mix' it should be a really exciting term that I can really get my teeth into. I'm not 100% sure what these modules will actually consist of but I'm sure come next week I'll know exactly what I have to do. 

Through out this week I have been nipping into town and hanging out at the boyfriends house, so nothing too taxing. Whilst being in town I have been mooching around the shops to find some sensible buys, things I can have in my wardrobe for ages...

That's where my first maxi skirt comes into the equation. It is the perfect wardrobe staple, you can wear it in the winter with a pair of boots and a long sleeved top, tucked in so it shows off your waist. 
You can also take this skirt with you into the summer months, by wearing it with flip flops and a strapy top; also tucked in. If you are feeling daring, and you have a good stomach, you could also wear the skirt with a crop top. However at this moment in time I will not be wearing it with as I have the perfect tummy. 

Here's my outfit for today incorporating my brand new maxi skirt:
Top: New Look
Necklace: Topshop 
Skirt: New Look - £19.99
Belt: comes with skirt
Shoes: River Island

The necklace I bought ages ago from Topshop in their Freedom collection and I love it. I think the chain necklaces are the most versitle and they rock up an outfit as soon as you put it on.

The shoes maybe a year old but they still do the trick and you've got to have a bit of character somewhere right?

Overall this skirt is amazing, it hides all my sins, I can go out for a meal and not have to worry about buttons on my jeans popping off or feeling uncomfortable! It also makes my legs look a lot longer than they are, as I am only a mere 5 foot 3 inches tall. 
All in all I think this skirt is going to be in my wardrobe for a very long time! 
Every girl needs a maxi skirt in their wardrobe, there are so many around at the moment, all in different colours and patterns to take you from season to season. 
Have a great day x
