Ballerina Bitch





T-Shirt, Primark
Skirt, Zara
Jersey Blazer, ASOS
Tights, Primark
Boots, (not quite seen), Topshop
Ring, Topshop
Necklace, Can't remember...


I bought this skirt from Zara well over a year ago, and for some reason, I don't wear it as much as I should. But this is how I pulled it all together for a Saturday hospital appointment, dropping my parents at the station (they're off to Glasgow for an overnight stay, to celebrate their 15th Wedding Anniversary) and dropping into the supermarket for a bit of a nosey. I really like the kind of toughened up ballerina vibe of the flared skirt and the pale pink with a tougher edge of my spikey ring and and favourite boots, bored of them yet? Tough.



Oooo Oooo I'm also wearing my MUA Lipstick, which has become a bit of a favourite (I posted about it HERE). It lives in my small make-up bag, in my handbag, and gets thrown on many a day. It's still love, just as much as when I purchased it, which is pretty damn good for a single English Pound. I'm now lusting after the Heaven and Earth palette as I'm starting to experiment a bit more with my eye make-up.

I also picked up a sweet pair of shoes in ASDA whilst out and about, with a view to the trip to Nigeria I'm doing in July, and a cream dress I've ordered from ASOS. Looking forward to showing off both. If anyone is interested in the trip I'm doing, shout and I'll post a bit more about it, although as it gets a bit nearer, I probably won't be able to stop myself anyway!

This weekend will largely be spent writing more of my research project, the draft of which is due very soon and prepping for the final round of the mooting competition final, which is a week on Monday. A couple of weeks ago, I was accused of being a cheat, behind my back, wrongly, by our opponents in the first round of this competition, and whilst my friends have been quick to affirm that it's a load of bollocks, I feel like I still have something to prove. I hope our final round opponents are ready for my partner Lauren and I when we really have our game faces on.

I have family in Ghana so i imagine it would be similar to Nigeria, be careful as the roads are quite dusty and kinda spoil ur clothes, it's an odd orangey dust as well so yeah i wouldn't take anything expensive :) xx

I've had ASDA flats before, they've been great, although they don't seem to get the same publicity as Tescos et al, they have some awesome clothing too, I saw a couple of great workwear dresses and some lovely spring knitwear today! YAY for supermarket clothing! *ahem* cheapskate much *ahem*

Chloe said...

Thanks Winnie, the necklace is an old fave and I'm really enjoying the skirt today.

Chloe said...

Thanks for the heads up on the dust. I'm not sure I really own anything that expensive... I think cheapskate should be my middle name, but that doesn't mean I don't love my items though, so I shall be careful what I take. Have you visited you family in Ghana before? My school used to do a trip to Ghana every year as they had links with a school there, it always seems like a really interesting place to visit.

Cute outfit, especially the boots! I'm loving my MUA lipsticks at the moment- you can't really go wrong at £1 xx

Chloe said...

Thank you. They really are great for £1.

you look nice, Chloe! The skirt is lovely! I just read your comment in re: contact lenses. I wear contacts when i'm on a night out but recently, i've just kept my glasses on and not bothered with contacts at all. The type i've got really dries my eyes out after an hour or two, so I end up blinking like a crazy woman for the rest of the time! :( Does yours dry out really quickly? xxxx

Chloe said...

Thank you, I really enjoyed wearing this look, definitely one to keep going with.

Thank you. I love these Primark tees, just a shame they don't have that extra length in them. If they did, I'd have every colour going!
