I have had this skirt since autumn. I saw it online and added it to my virtual basket, it sold out before i had committed to purchasing (i sometimes deliberate when i internet shop and leave items in my basket for days, sometimes weeks on end, anyone else do this?) and as soon as it was sold out and i could no longer have it i wanted it even more.. of course.
So when i walked in to my local New Look branch, one of my favourite shopping haunts ( its also the home of the local Starbucks upstairs!) it was there in my size just begging to be bought finally. Delighted i went ahead and my made my purchase.
Fast forward 4 months and it was still sat on the hanger, in my wardrobe, brand new and unworn.
Its times like this that make me realise why i do the #100daysnospend!
As much as my style has gone a little darkside of late, with the spring/summer ’15 brochures and catalogues coming through my door and inbox i can’t help but look towards a few pastels.
The skirt is the perfect little pastel pick me up i need without having to go shopping, as it was already in possesion. Happy Days.
Funny, all last summer i just could not get in to pastels, it sometimes take me a little longer to catch on to a trend or how to figure out how to make it work with me. Adding black in seemed to be my answer i guess!
Have you ever been late to a trend that you ended up really liking?
