Let's take the long and winding road home

Top: Internacionale. Skirt: c/o SheInside. Boots: So You Shoes. Belt: Zara.

Whenever I go to the bottom of my garden (actually that's a lie, it's at the side) I always pretend I am a little fairy that lives in a mushroom house. I think it's what these kinda skirts do to me. Although this is the first skirt I've ever had that is like this.
These skirts have always taken my fancy. I love a good (now how can I put this without sounding gross..?!) floater! They make me want to run about in a big field like Cathy from Wuthering Heights. If that's what she does.. I'm saying this as though I know. But I really don't, it just seems like she would be that kind of person.
So as I don't have a big field in view at this present moment in time, I'm going to swift around Littlebum's parents garden.
And if they ask what I'm doing? I'll pretend I'm sweeping up the leaves with my trail.

  18. My first thoughts 'This skirt is divine!' and honestly.. I think that's the first time the word 'divine' has even entered my head... EVER. But I LOVE it the colour especially.
    Also in reply to your comment, the boy and I are moving to Surrey :)

    1. haha divine.. what a word, sounds like something someone would use to describe wine. or maybe i'm saying that because it rhymes with divine. who knows. ANYWAYZ! exciting you're off to Surrey, it'll be heaps of fun for you :)

  50. Being able to 'float' around is exactly what I like about these skirts too... Not sure how well it'd go down if I started running around Leeds city centre in one just to make the back of the dress go all swooshy!
