It's ok to "Take a break"...

I have decided to take a little break from my blog for a short while as I deal with some personal issues.

 I recently separated from my husband and am trying to figure a few things out so consequently I'm not feeling great at the moment which has lead to me not feeling very inspired or inspirational. I'm sure some of you will get this. I'm basically moping a bit, you know how it is! 

I don't usually divulge too much of my personal life on my blog as it is predominantly a fashion blog but I just felt I needed to speak and sometimes that's ok right?!  I may even remove this post afterwards as it's taken me a lot to write this; lots of "shall I? Shan't I?" but right now this is how I'm feeling so I'm putting it on you readers as, even though I don't know you personally, I like this little space I have to talk to people who don't know all about my 'real' life nor will judge me... plus you are all really lovely :) 

So yeh, that's my shit, we all have our own shit to deal with and this is my current shit. That and the lack of usage in my one hand and the discomfort it's causing is dragging me down even further. I JUST WANT TO USE BOTH OF MY HANDS SO I CAN APPLY MY FAKE TAN EVENLY!!!!! (First world problems). 

I know I only blog once a week at the moment anyway and I'm hoping when I come back I will be bringing more. I will still be boring you on Instagram no doubt ;)  I may even be back here in a couple of weeks but all I know is that I need to build myself back up a little before I continue to try and inspire. 

Thanks for reading and for your continued support. Be back soon! X

Follow up post- Gettin' Skirty

Firstly, Hello August! July has been ok and we've had some good weather but I'm ready for August and for my baby to turn 4-eeek! 

So a few posts ago I was talking about skirts (see post "Gettin' Skirty) and now, as promised, I'm bringing a little follow up of the skirts I've actually purchased. 

I bought this skirt in the New look sale along with this Pin stripe shirt which My Mom said "looks like a bloody pair of pyjamas" Yes Mom this is how we dress now ;). I can't seem to find online as I bought it in store so have found a similar one which I may also need! 

Get the look 

Top- New Look • Skirt- New Look • Shoes- New Look • Bag- Whistles at ASOS

Secondly, I had been searching for the perfect button down cotton skirt for a while and found this one also from New Look. I liked it but felt a little too "mumsy" in it at first but when I wore it with a white tee and a bit of tan and decided to keep it. Will also look great with a shirt tied at the waist and leather or denim jacket. 

Get the look 

Tshirt- Topshop • Skirt- New Look • Shoes- Next • Hat- H&M

Lastly, I like to add my sunnies to an outfit as an accessory whether I'm actually wearing them or if just resting them on my top (it's a 'thing' I have  especially if I can't find the right jewellery to go with a particular outfit, it breaks it up a little I feel :) 

Both- ASOS click here for top and here for bottom. 

Thanks for reading- hope you enjoyed the follow up. 

Have a great week! X
