Leather Skirt

Top - Topshop, Skirt - H&M, Shoes - H&M, Necklace - Primark

I finally managed to get my hands on a pleated leather skirt without paying ridiculous amounts! This is thanks to my homegirl K-Fed, aka Katy from Caught up in Cake. She saw this skirt in the H&M sale and tweeted about it, then she kindly bought it for me and posted it! How nice is that?! Genuine lovely human being :)

So thanks to Katy, this skirt is now mineeee :) and I love it. I like the look of the lace and leather together, but the top is slightly too short to wear with it I think, it keeps pinging out as you can see in the second picture! Annoying but oh well, I'll just have to buy some more things to go with it.

Sorry I subjected you to my white pastey legs, they haven't really seen the light of day much yet this year. They're also covered in cuts and bruises from a night out - I'm not quite sure what happened there.

I found a dress for the summer ball tonight - it's from Topshop and I love it :) I'm sure some pictures of tonight will appear on here at some point. I just hope it stops raining! 

How would you wear this skirt? Hope you all have a lovely weekend :)

  2. I love hoiw you're wereing this! I struggle to make short skirts look beautiful but casual but you've nailed it!
    For night out I would probably were the skirt with long sleeved shirts, propably sheer, so I could were it on a night out with some heels without feeling like I'm showing off a bit too much skin.
    Can't wait to see your dress for tonight

  4. I've wanted one of these skirts for ages, I hate everybody who managed to get one of the primark ones (joke!)! I'd probably team it with a cream chiffon blouse tucked in :)

    1. Thank you :)
      Yeah this top is just a slightly awkward length, it would just look so much better if I could tuck it in!
      Yayyy, it's my favourite ever necklace :) x
