Outfit of the Day ~ Tartan + Thigh Highs.

Tartan skirt ~ gifted
Cross t-shirt ~ Topshop
Thigh high socks ~ Primark
Planet necklace ~ ASOS
Treble clef bracelet ~ gift
Dark blue lipstick ~ Illamasqua in Disciple
Black and white creepers ~ New Look
Unicorn Dog ~ came with house

Yay an outfit! Unfortunately inside, and if you're the boyfriend then you know I'm really particular about where I take photos indoors, I hate any kind of mess in the pictures, so I was kind of a nightmare that day but it was way too windy to go outside and I had a free day so I was determined to do an outfit. Plus the day before I had had my hair cut and I wanted some kind of photographic evidence of it - as always took advance of the £10 cut for being a model for the trainees. I still don't like the mess in these photos and the fact the light isn't consistent but hopefully you'll forgive me for it!
I'm pretty fond of this outfit although I swapped out the socks with tights when I went out - I don't think my legs are toned enough to be sporting them, plus I'm just not confident enough anyway. But I'm starting to play squash with the boyfriend once and week (in two weeks time) so hopefully that'll help solidify some wobbly bits. The skirt was from my gran, originally it was a lot longer but she shortened it for me and now I can't stop wearing it! As is often the case I realise only now that my under eye dots aren't symmetrical...I probably shouldn't draw attention to it but I just have. So there!
January has been pretty busy for me, what with exams and then straight into the start of uni. It's been good though, there was of course the snow which was awesome; the boyfriend and I went sledging with his parents and the dog (who you can see pictured! I call her my unicorn dog and she is lovely and ditzy) and that was so much fun! I also saw Pitch Perfect and Les Miserable this month - both good films but obviously Les Mis was stunning, I think everyone is genetically predisposed to cry at that film, it is amazing.
And I think that's all! I've got a haul post coming up as well as the bi-weekly makeup tag which this week's theme is Mermaid (yay!)
I hope you enjoyed your January!
