The wrap skort has received a little update in my wardrobe recently, and surprise surprise it’s tartan! I wore my black and white skorts to death over the summer so they haven’t made it out of my wardrobe in a while, but I couldn’t resist this checked version from Hidden Fashion (another super bargain at £10.49).
I feel I’m getting a little predictable with my fluffy jumpers, but I have been wearing these short sleeved Primark numbers in the place of t-shirts all winter now and definitely won’t be stopping! I threw on my go-to coat at the moment, this amazing grey ASOS slouch coat, and my current favourite Topshop Argo boots. Finally I’m wearing some adorable sun and moon earrings from Pretty In Black* (pictured below), I’ve been wearing these a lot recently and they’re only £4! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
One more checked piece to add to my winter collection! Like my tartan trousers, this print is quite subtle and a nice alternative to the more common in-your-face red and black print, something which I much prefer. The dress is also a cute silhouette with capped sleeves and a slightly flared skirt, and is a bargain at £11.49. Here I belted it, wore it with adorable school-girly cut-out shoes from Primark, and my trusty leather biker jacket.
What good is a winter wardrobe which doesn’t feature a bit (or a lot) of tartan? I found these trousers in Primark a few weeks ago (in their formal section along with a matching blazer which I didn’t quite have the guts to buy to complete the tartan suit, although I am somewhat regretting that decision now!). I love the dark colours and lack of red, I think that avoiding red tartan trousers altogether is the easiest way of sidestepping looking like you’ve bought a “Punk” costume for Halloween (that’s not to say that some people can’t rock them though). These are very subtle and easy to wear, and the shape is really great too!
Here I paired them with a mesh paneled top from Choies, amazing new imitation suede and sheepskin biker jacket from H&M. The jacket was a bargain £30 because I used a 25% discount code from an H&M email (I would definitely recommend signing up to their mailing list!), but even at full price (£39.99) it is definitely affordable and makes a nice change from the usual leather biker.
Today was spent visiting family before Christmas and eating way too much! I wore my new Ralph Lauren cable knit jumper, a Christmas present from my lovely boyfriend, and my favourite American Apparel tartan print chiffon skirt which I actually got for about £10 on Secret Sales! I also wore my new Topshop Adonis boots which I got for less than half price on Next2Nowt.com and of course Primark Super Cosy tights.

Today my new tartan skater dress arrived which I ordered from Ebay last week, I love it! There are similar things available everywhere, I chose this one because firstly McQueen is out of my budget and secondly I prefer the tartan pattern with a yellow stripe running through it too rather than the more simple red and black designs you can buy. At £14.99 plus postage this was the cheapest I could find online, you can get it here.
For the day time I will dress this down with black tights and creepers or black ankle boots as well as a hoodie underneath my leather biker and a thick woolly scarf whilst it’s still cold!
