Double Polka-Dots

Just a quick look using a skirt I bought in London a couple of weeks ago. Hilariously though, they've all sold out like mad because Kate Middleton bought herself one while out shopping just a few days ago! What can I say... she has good taste ;) Although no doubt she will wear it and look 100 times better than me but hey ho, such is life.

I'm so glad pencil skirts are back because in my opinion this is a trend that looks best on 'curvy' girls who have hips and bums! Although I'm not at all saying that they don't also look fabulous on skinnier girls, it's just that I believe traditionally pencil skirts are seen as something quite sexy and womanly. So yay! Lets all go eat pie.




f.y.i, I'd just washed my hair so the roots were still a bit damp, I don't usually wander the streets looking all damp and soggy.
Shirt & Skirt - both Topshop
Giant Velvet Dickie Bow (used in hair) - also Topshop!
