Dancing On My Own


Blouse - Topshop / Vest - American Apparel / Skirt - So In Fashion* / Shoes - Barratts*
Necklace - Me & Zena / Bracelet - The Bohemian Collective

I've had a pretty nice weekend of relaxation after a fairly stressful week. I spent most of yesterday sitting around drinking iced tea and playing outside with Chloe. I've been enjoying the sun a bit too much as my shoulders are still incredibly sunburnt! I always wear SPF50+ on my face but I tend to neglect my body a bit. This top probably wasn't the best choice to protect my shoulders but it was far too hot to wear anything with sleeves. I got it from Topshop a couple of months ago and it's one of my favourite pieces to wear at the minute. The floral embroidery is too cute. I actually bought it when I got my black corduroy pinafore as I saw one of the mannequins wearing this shirt with it. I felt a bit weird copying a whole outfit off a mannequin but I just liked the combo so much haha.

I really love my new denim skater skirt from So In Fashion. I have a few of the American Apparel circle skirts as they're just amazing but of course being from AA, they were pretty expensive. This skirt is almost exactly the same as their denim circle skirt but at less than half the price! At first I wasn't convinced by all these American Apparel dupes that have been brought out by other brands recently (disco pants anyone?) but the cheaper copies are just too good to resist. The skirt is a bit on the short side though so if you're any taller than me you might want to stick to wearing it with tights! I think it's perfect for wearing on these precious few sunny days.
