Hope you all had a good weekend.
Remember when I said I was going to take a few outfit posts? I’ve been the worst at blogging this year but trust me I want to make it a regular thing (2014 resolutions, anyone?).
Anyway, I’m sure you’re all familiar with the tartan/plaid/checked/grid trend that’s been all over the place this season. Even though I don’t really post about fashion trends on the catwalks or on the high street on any of my social media accounts -okay, maybe Pinterest, which is highly addictive!- but I’ve been seeing lots of fashion bloggers and Instagram photos everywhere of this trend. So I decided why not give it a try? And besides, I highly doubt I have any red item of clothing in my wardrobe- very surprising for someone like me who loves prints and colours by the way. (Note: I say red ‘cause I prefer to wear this trend in red.)
I’ve lately got into online shopping (don’t know why I didn’t get to it earlier!) and came across this tartan skirt on Missguided. The site was having a free delivery promo so I thought what the heck, I’m buying it! It was kind of a blind buy, because I have large hips and I usually prefer to try clothes on before I buy them…. but yeah. I went out on a limb and bought it. It came a few days later and it fit quite well. I instantly knew it had to put this outfit on the blog! Hope you like!
I know the outfit is not very winter appropriate especially for my legs but you could wear tights (maybe a leather jacket?) and a black coat for added layers and you’re good to go! Perfect for going on a date, drinks with friends, dinner, etc. It would be nice for a night out as well, but maybe paired with a crop top or cami? (Outfit inspiration… Lol.)
