Skirt: River Island
Nails: Orly - Holla (hands) and Essie Tart Deco (toes)
The issue with early birthday present shopping is that I see things I want and I don't want to wait a month for them! Along with a couple of other bits and pieces, I nabbed this skirt form River Island. Its high waisted (on me anyway) with a split on the left hand side and has a mini skirt underneath to cater for your dignity. The thing I love most about it is the colour, River Island have this skirt in a fair few colours and textures, most being autumnal shades with 0 shimmer. This baby is grey, with a slight lilac undertone and a shimmery effect that will either seal the deal for you or make you run a mile.
For me it was definitely a "love at first sight" purchase, made better by the price, £24 is an absolute steal! The non shimmery shades are even better at £22 and I spotted them on a few of my favourite bloggers recently, so I'm sure I was subconsciously on the hunt for one. I know summer is pretty much over (Reading Festival always marks the end for me) but I decided I could justify buying this skirt at the end of August as I'm going to the south of France in two weeks and this skirt will also look amazing on a night out with some black heels - so it will definitely be well loved! I wore this skirt yesterday with sandals, a leather jacket and plain vest top as the weather was surprisingly good and I needed to have my ankles bare as I was getting tattooed (post coming soon)!
P.S I've changed my blog layout slightly, let me know what you think! :)
