If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, or following me on Twitter, you’ll know since the turn of the year I have been on the hunt for the perfect black tulle skirt. Well a few weeks back, I found it. And of is she perfect! I have the wonderful people at Sammydress to thank for it. They emailed offering me the chance to become one of their I-Try Program and to kick it all off I got to choose something to review from a select range of item. As soon as I saw this beautiful black tulle skirt, I knew it was the one for me. And today I’m sharing with you how I styled it on Wednesday.
Denim Jacket (last summer), Primark
On Wednesdays We Wear Pink T-Shirt £20, Miss Jojangles
Black Tulle Skirt* £5.83, Sammydress
White Frill Socks £2.50, Primark
Red T-Bar Shoes* £25, Boohoo
Firstly, please ignore my legs. They didn’t enjoy their first wax of the summer and ended up looking like a plucked chicken’s bum. ANYWAY, moving on..
I’m going to start with my skirt, because I love it, and I’d really like to get it in cream too just for a bit of variation, and why the hell not? It’s a total bargain at £5.83! I’m really loving midi skirts like this at the moment as they are much more practical when chasing a toddler around than my usual above the knee (read “mini”) choice. Sammydress has so many gorgeous pieces on it, all with amazing prices. The quality is great and even though my beautiful skirt was shipped from abroad it came incredibly fast and is of great quality. The elastic waist is great for me as it means I can wear it with a cute t-shirt tucked in, like I have above.
My t-shirt was made by one of my favourite bloggers, Jojo! I am actually in love with Jojo’s handwriting, it’s so beautiful so when I saw she was selling her “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink” top on Etsy, I had to have it. I love anything unique and I can 100% guarentee no one here will have this t-shirt because they’re not cool enough to find Miss Jojangles, or use Etsy for that matter! Really hope I get to meet the lovely Jojo at our Lincoln meet up!
As I mentioned a couple of weeks back, I was one of the winners for #ExperienceEverything with Boohoo. I won £100 store credit and these shoes were one of the items I bought. I’d had my eye on them since my birthday and I was so excited to purchase them. They are adorable and so comfortable too. I can see them getting a lot of wear over the summer.
Both my frill socks and denim jacket are pretty old. I love wearing socks and shoes if i’m not wearing tights as I get really cold feet, plus it makes me feel like a kid again.. hardly something I should be striving for at twenty six with a kid of my own, bit it is the little things. I’m so glad to be able to wear denim jackets again, they’re so easy to throw on and can be used both day and night.
Have you experienced the joy of lusting over an item of clothing for so long then finally getting your hands on it? Wonderful, isn’t it?
