OOTD: topshop polkadot blouse and new look paperbag skirt


Polkadot Blouse - Topshop
Paperbag Skirt - New Look
Nails - Models Own Pink Punch, Barry M White, Collection 2000 Black Liquid Eyeliner

I never usually like really 'cutesie' outfits but this one has really taken my fancy this week, just for casual days of going to uni for a couple of hours. 
The peter pan collar, polkadots, round buttons and flowy skirt make me feel a bit like a ragdoll or something! The blouse is a really old favourite of mine that I always go to when I'm not sure what to wear, and I remember absolutely buzzing seeing a photo of Daisy Lowe, one of my absolute fave style icons wearing the same top. Why does it always make me so happy to see celebs wearing things I own?! So sad.

Digging out old clothes and trying to make the best of them is something I have found myself doing a lot over the past couple of months. I literally have no money to my name, when I've paid my rent this month I think I'll be left with about thirty quid to tide me over the crimbo holidays which could be interesting... It really annoys me because I absolutely LOVE buying christmas presents for my friends and family, and usually put so much thought into them but this year there is really not much point. I'd consider selling my organs but I'm so unfit I doubt anyone would want them for free to be honest.

Heading into Camden town with my best friends from home who've come to visit for the weekend! Should be a lovely day filled with pining over quirky clothes, wishing I was rich, and eating my sorrows away in the food quarter.
