Top, Topshop; Bodycon Skirt, H&M; Tights, Miss Selfridge; Nails, Eyeko Rain Polish.

I had so much trouble with shooting this outfit! The majority of my photographs came out with me looking a bit pregnant, and my hands/arms were all over the shop for some reason! But about 50 photos later, here we are, and excuse my ridiculous facial expression in one of the photos hahaha (: This is the top that I wrote about in my last post, which received surprisingly mixed reviews! I wore it yesterday while babysitting and it is oh-so-comfortable yet quite chic at the same time I think.

The top is from my beloved Topshop, at a bargainous £16, and I'm definitely going back to see if it comes in other colours. I would really recommend purchasing in a size or two smaller though, because although clingy on the arms, it is quite baggy! Paired with my black bodycon skirt and a pair of patterned tights as per usual ;) I also have a leopard print clip in my hair, which hasn't shot well at all! Sad sad times, I blame the strange lighting in my room today!

If you have any post requests or questions for me in general, please send me them over Formspring or by email! I'm working on a blogging feature that I had suggested to me in my giveaway, but would love more requests so that the blog targets what you all really want to see. And finally: a big hello and thank you to the new followers! I've had a huge influx of new readers recently, and am so grateful to you all for linking to my blog etc.
