Two weeks ago I hit a mini shopping milestone – I bought my first piece of clothing online. Aside from groceries, I don’t really shop online. As far as clothes, shoes and accessories go, I prefer to see them, try them on, prance around the changing room in them and feel them against my skin before parting with my cash.
However, after seeing Amy’s take on this Warehouse skirt, and finding out it was in the sale after spotting it in her original post, I knew I had to bite the bullet and buy it. I’ve been looking for a leather skirt for ages and while this one is a little more plastic, than leather, it’s proved a satisfying way to dip in to the trend and shop online, too.
I wore it yesterday when Mr Ship-Shape and I ventured out of the house to go for a roast dinner at The White Bear on St Michael’s Hill (yum!), despite the snow. Yes, the snow – there, I mentioned it.
I’m fully aware there are probably a million posts of bloggers looking cute as a button frolicking with their friends/dogs/babies in the snow floating around on the web right now, but this weather is my nemesis. I have the balance and coordination of a newborn deer on a good day, which means snow, ice and I are not good friends. At least Bambi makes skidding around all day look cute…
I paired the skirt with a jumper I found at Kendal Calling festival this summer, some chunky pearls I found at Amy’s clothes swap and some earmuffs that my sister-in-law bought for me this Christmas – perfect for keeping off the chill without ruining my fringe!
