Outfit Post- Pencil Skirt and Kitty Shoes

Hey there and welcome to today's post!

This is a short little post showing an outfit from the weekend that I really liked. I was going through my wardrobe to see what I had that I hadn't worn in a while and I found this skirt. I got it in a charity shop about a year ago and I've never worn it so I took it for its maiden voyage on a coffee quest!

My hair needed a trim so I pinned it all up and adorned it with this simple black flower which suited the style of the skirt quite well and gave the overall look a pin-up vibe. It's also been a long time since I wore my kitty shoes out for the day so I took them along for the walk! Makeup was simple and overall I liked how the outfit came together. It is different to what I normally wear which made it more fun!

The pattern on the skirt is this leopard print which I don't normally wear but I love the fact that the skirt is all one colour, Makes it easier to wear I think. 

My trusty cameo skeleton lady! This is one of 4 necklaces that are in constant rotation in my collection, it just adds a fun flair to outfits! 

These shoes have seen better days but I love them so much! I bought these the day I handed my Masters thesis in. I was exhausted and almost dizzy walking into the shop after a stressful week but I emerged with the coolest cats in town! 

I couldn't get a good photo of my makeup! My eyeliner went on pretty evenly and very quickly which is always a good sign for the day ahead. My lip colour is pulling a pinky shade here but it was darker, more of a plum! 

I have been using Dr. Organics skin care in the Dead Sea Minerals Range and I have to say it's really been doing good things for my skin. It has been Clearing it up and helping it look more even. I am also freckled from a summer of fun in the sun. I actually quite like the sunshine despite the whole goth thing but I was forgetful and didn't use sunscreen all the time this year so I picked up some colour. It should fade out over the Winter. I'm not overly pushed on having a ghostly pallor but I do like the pale look so I'll just remember the sunscreen and see what happens! 

Does anyone else enjoy the sunshine or do you hide in the shade all summer?

Thanks for reading,

@Laura it's funny I always think my hair looks crap then I look at photos and I'm like oh, it looks grand. Just me being silly and a perfectionist! Oh I'd def recommend keeping an eye out. They are so perfect and so well made. They have lasted so long :)
