Today I was able to have a lie in prior to going to sixth form (thank God) and so I was able to take a little extra time deciding what to wear in the morning. As December is now upon us - although still early December - I thought it would be deeemed acceptable to opt for a slightly festive vibe and drag out my christmassy tartan skirt!
I love this skirt so much, when I first bought it, a year ago now, I had little confidence in how to dress, so I had only worn it once... in the comfort of my own home... only in front of my family. However, now I have found my own sense of style and am more daring when deciding what to wear, I have decided I am going to wear this skirt multiple times in the run up to Christmas as it is just so comfortable and it would be a waste not to wear it!
I paired the skirt with a dark grey round neck jumper and collared shirt. The jumper has two silver buttons on either shoulder which added a slight military feel and the collared shirt just gave the outfit a slightly more smart and professional feel. Finally I added some opaque tights and my favourite boots which created a grungy touch to contrast with the feminine skirt.
Although I got a few references to the Britney Spears 'Hit me baby' video because of the slight school girl look, all in all I received quite a few compliments on the outfit and so I will definitely wear it again as Christmas dawns upon us!
