What I Wore | Floral Skirt & Children's Shoes

How do bloggers manage bad weather?! It's poured down with rain here for the past few days and I couldn't quite work out what I was meant to do... Dark, grainy indoor pictures? Stand in the rain and let my hair go frizzy? Pfft, I don't think so. There was a little gap of sunshine today (hurraaay!) so I dragged my sister outside in her pyjamas and forced her to photograph for me (that's what little sisters are for, right?)

This outfit is super simple but I like it anyway. I had my doubts about these little red Primark shoes for months but I found them  hibernating in the bottom of my wardrobe, brand-shining-new complete with tags and realised how adorable they are! Needless to say, wearing them out for the first time wasn't the greatest idea (my feet haven't recovered from the blisters, hence the socks in my last post). Still, it was worth it - they make me feel 5 years old again (definitely a good thing!).

With the shoes throwing me back to my childhood, I teamed this outfit with my little pink satchel (yet again - note to self: must stop including this in every post), fox ring and a floral scrunchie. I wore this H&M pleated skirt which I'm loving at the moment and this Topshop ribbed crop top. 

Skirt - H&M - £12.99
Top - Topshop - £8
Bag - Primark - £6
Shoes - Primark - £8
Scrunchie - StitchByLouB - £1.50
Ring - Pastel Clouds - £3.69

Outfit total: Approximately £40 (Not bad, hey?)

  1. I have that bag too and I also use it quite a lot,it's just such a nice colour that brightens up every outfit :)
    I also love the colour of those shoes! I know exactly how you feel with the blisters haha, I have the black and pink versions from earlier this year and they shredded the backs of my feet! Fortunately they get a lot comfier and are fine now :)
