Two Old Gems

 Top | Topshop
Jacket | Boohoo
Skirt | Miss Selfridge
Belt | Primark
Earrings | Primark

 I thought it was about time I had another rummage through my drawers to pick out an old gem that I had so cruelly forgotten about (I did this a few months ago here!) In fact, I found two things I'd completely forgotten about. This a) tells me I need an ebay clear out, as my wardrobe is definitely not being used to it's full potential and b) means I need to get out of the habit of just wearing my new-clothes-outfits and to make sure I mix the old in with the new.

Old gem numero uno: this top. Purchased a good 3 years ago from Topshop in the sale for a tenner. I think it dresses down old gem number two perfectly.
Old gem number two: the skirt. I actually bought this probably about 5 years ago... yep, verrry old. But I love the bright purple shade of it - although, it's a tad on the short side! But nothing opaque tights can't resolve.

These tights are just a little bit snazzy too - they have socks attached at the foot, perfect for boot-lovers people like me who wear them all year round -  it makes the experience of wearing tights at this time of year a whole lot cosier. I bought them a while ago now, so I'm hoping that Primark are still selling them! As I'm keen to grab some more!

I hope this post entices some of you to snoop through your wardrobes for a long-forgotten treasure. I don't know about you, but I find it quite magical coming across something that still has potential and that I've not worn in ages!

  8. I absolutely love that skirt! I'm all for flashy colours in the winter time, it's already so shitty and miserable outside - clothes should cheer us up, especially now :)
