Well, finally I wore my stripy H&M skirt seen in my last post (and previously here on my blog) to my fabulous friends 40th. It was still touch and go, I still thought it was borderline a little short due to how much it puffed out but I got over it and really enjoyed wearing it!

I changed my mind last minute and decided to wear my Zara tank top instead of the grey Cos tee. This was another sale purchase, £35.99 down to £10 and is 55% silk, 45% cotton, I adore it! So much so I went back online this morning to order another but they have all sold out. So if you see any in store, I fully recommend it.
I also changed my mind on the shoes (I am very impulsive when it comes to dressing on the actual day - unlike anything else in my life!). I opted for my black suede Zara shoes as they just felt a tad more 'evening' and glam. I was planning on my vintage pink Chanel clutch but as I went dark with the shoes, I chose my old faithful black Miu Miu clutch.
I am slightly addicted to my Topshop flower necklace at the moment (another post where I am wearing it coming soon). I was bought for me by my lovely (uber stylish) friend Jo years ago. I tend to wear it loads then give it a break then dig it out again. Well I've well and truly dug it out again recently. It's just one of those necklaces that seems to go with everything, the tones and shades in it blend with my outfits and bring it all together. I need another please Jo Jo!
Considering how much I don't wear skirts, I really loved wearing this one. It felt very fun and girly for a change, especially with a high heel. I had my Essie Lollipop nail polish on to add a bright pop of colour to my nails and kept the rest of my jewellery simple.
And finally, just because I am never happy with my photo shots of my outfit, one just before I went to bed as wanted to really show the volume of the skirt. I am so happy I kept it. It's always a good idea to push yourself out of your comfort zone from time to time!
