drops of jupiter






top: primark | skirt: new look | shoes: river island | necklace: topman

The skirt, top and necklace in this outfit combined cost less than the shoes, and the shoes were only £15, haha. Sale shopping at it's finest! I picked up this top for only £5 and love the scalloped detailing. The only annoying thing is that it's quite short and the material on the sleeves rolls up, but I suppose you can't complain at that price! The skirt is quite longer than I usually wear, even when I wear it high waisted, and at first I felt a bit granny-like but I really like the colour and pattern so I'm sure I'll get used to it.

This post is scheduled so hopefully it posts! Think of my slaving away in work until 6pm whilst everyone else is getting merry and counting down the hours until 2012! Speak to you all next year!

  17. I think I just got lucky! I never find anything in the sales either but did get a few things this time round! Haha, stalker alert! I find it crazy too! We were told our customers should be in a good mood with it being Christmas but if anything they were more pushy for better deals because it was Christmas!

  18. Love this outfit. I so very nearly bought this skirt recently, I wish I had now! I too was worried it would look too granny-ish, but it definitely doesn't on you.

  29. The shoes! Oh the shoes! How come I can never find things this nice in the sales?
    Hope work wasn't too dreadful, I think it's mad that people want to upgrade their phones on new years/christmas - I don't stalk you and your place of work by the way, I just twitter stalk!

    Love the necklace, and the boots practically have my mouth watering!
    I can't believe they were only £15.
