Going Places

Hello! Not had much to post recently as I've been busy packing for the big move which is going to be on Friday, very excited about this. I've also been trying to save money so I can buy lots of nice things for my new room so I've not been going out much, such a bore recently! I do have a Warpaint gig and hen night in Portsmouth this weekend which I'm looking forward to. I treated myself to a new outfit for both of these, it's been busy at the end of term in the library so I deserve it ;)


I have finished full time work for summer now and I will only been in for a few hours a week until September, hurrah! This is what I wore today for a shopping trip and for my lovely 3 hour shift in the library.

Skirt: Dorothy Perkins (£17 in the sale)
Cardigan and Top: Asda
Shoes: Peacocks
Hairband: Dorothy Perkins
Leggings: Evans

The outft is a little dull but I wanted a oppoutunity to wear my new skirt, do you have to put new things on straight away? I always do that. I think I might pair this skirt with some nice colourful blouses and t-shirts when the weather is a little better but the rain was torrential today so I opted for black.
My brother said that this skirt makes me look like I work in a travel agents in the 90s! I can kind of see his point especially if I had a little scarf tied around my neck.

I've got a feeling this will be my last post from my current house. Not sure when I will be able to post again or when I will have the internet so if you have any questions or want to chat you can email me - gemmasouthgate@hotmail.com or you can find me on twitter - @Gemma_DS

  14. I like the skirt! What's wrong with looking 90s anyway? It had all the best fashionistas like... blossom! oh and clarissa! I always wanted to look like her.
    Too many exclamations in that mini paragraph for my liking. I do like your outfit a lot though and I'm quite jealous of your long summer break

  16. Thanks ladies, moving is scary but fun. I should be busy packing but I'm sat on the sofa with Sookie reading blogs ooopsie!
    @Eloise- I loved Clarissa although I was a bit too young to understand who Nirvana and Pearl Jam were back then. Need to get it on dvd and relive the 90s again. Love a bit of Sabrina too...
