Basically...

Tuesday, 16 August 2011


Ooo, it's me in some Basics! Can you believe this skirt was only £2.99?? Ah, gotta love H&M! This is just one of the ways I'll be styling it! Got lots more outfits in mind with this little beauty, i'm going to bore you with it. You know me, once I like something I wear it till it finishes! :D

Just a thank you for your wonderful responses to my last post! Love you guys!

I shall bid you adieu with a quote I found this evening that has inspired me...

"Be brave, be bold and have faith in your abilities. Never be afraid to try new things, whatever other people might say." 
~ Donatella Versace

Skirt : H&M
Tee : H&M
Tights : H&M

J'aime said...

Ahh, love H&M it is naturally my first resort, whenever shopping! I got that skirt too, grabbed it up as soon as i saw the price - although it is easily rip-able (if thats a word) there is me, trying to pull my skirt down, let splutzzz, it rips :| you probably handle it with more care :) but anywho, first time on your blog, and I really love it! can't wait to see more x
