I've decided to include shoe shots in my outfit posts from now on, I don't actually know why I never included them before. I think when I first started doing photographs I was worried I looked too short and stumpy so cut off the photos at the ankle but now I'm embracing my shortness! I also think that without the shoes it's quite hard to imagine the outfit as a whole so this is how it's gonna be done from now on. These are a few of my new purchases from the weekend - I bought this marl grey jumper and tweed skirt from Topshop. I picked them both up separately then tried them on together and realised they looked good as an outfit together. I never usually wear skirts, I'm more of a leggings or dress girl but I actually really like this look and may consider buying more smart skirts in the future. I paired this with my old leather/ mongolian fur gilet which never fails to give my outfits that extra glam factor. However, I was absolutely freezing today so sometimes I wish I chose insulation over glam!
I've been pretty ill over the past few days - I think it's just a combination of not getting enough sleep and working all the time so an early night is on the cards for me. A weekend at home will definitely help to rejuvenate my help, it's nothing a bit of good old home cooking can't cure!
