No words can describe how cold I was in this outfit last night, since when did the evenings get so cold?! I always refuse to take a jacket with me on a night out whether it's freezing or snowing so I guess that's my own fault! I bought this nude crop top from an American Apparel concession in Selfridges, I love anything nude and tend to wear crop tops with skirts on a night out so this was right up my street. I was on the hunt for a new leather-look skirt recently, I have my pleated Primark pleather skirt but the pleats make it stick out and sometimes you can feel a bit like a tent! I came across this one in River Island a few weeks ago but the sizing was really strange, I'm usually a size 10 but had to buy a size 6 as they were so large so don't order online as this needs to be tried on first. I couldn't be bothered trekking around in massive heels all night so stuck to my classic Topshop boots with frilly socks combination, never lets me down! 

I've mentioned previously that I'm moving to London on Sunday to begin my 9 months internship with French Connection. I'm living with a friend but it's going to be difficult to do outfit posts often as I'll be leaving the house early and nobody will around to take my photos. I'm in the process of purchasing a new camera/ tripod so I can do this myself without having to hassle a friend but it depends if the camera comes before I leave, fingers crossed!

    The nude top makes your tan look amazing, very jealous!
    I hate the idea of wearing heels all the time atm,
    definitely going to invest in some boots like these :)
