Tartan Takeover

WHAT I WORE
Until now I've managed to resist the pinafore trend, however when this beauty went into the New Look sale, it accidentally slipped into my basket - y'know - that old chestnut. It's rare that I go on New Look in their sales and actually find anything I like in my size so I guess you could call it fate. Plus, tartan and checks are set to be huge this AW13 so it's also an investment piece if you will. Is that enough excuses? Yes I think so...

This outfit reminds me a little of Cher in Clueless which is up there as being one of my favourite films ever. If you haven't seen it, I would have to respond with 'AS IF!' I love Cher's outfits and her electronic wardrobe even more. You'd have thought that by 2013 - more than a decade later that this would be readily available in Ikea and Argos stores nationwide.
If someone knows otherwise, please let me know...

The weather has turned dramatically, from a heatwave on Thursday to days of constant rain and temperatures dropping by more than 10 degrees - oh Summer in England. Hopefully we'll have a few more days or weeks of okay-ish weather before our Summer clothes and bare legs start to pack their bags and hibernate for the Winter.

I used to hate having bare legs, and whilst I'm still not 100% confident with the way they look, having a tan on them has slightly helped me overcoming my body fear. So it will definitely be strange covering them in 40 dernier tights come September. That, and getting back into the routine of putting them and within five minutes them laddering...ah memories!
