Outfit: What I Wore


Shirt: H&M
Skirt: H&M
Necklace: Topshop
Wedges: New Look

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I've been a busy bee lately! Nothing too exciting though, just been visiting my parents, going out with friends and volunteering, but it hasn't left very much time for blogging.

Anyway, I wore this outfit a couple of nights ago to consume way too much tequila and do what has now become known as the "crab dance". Quite glad there is no photographic evidence of that! The shirt is a recent purchase from H&M and this is the first time I've worn it. I like that it's a little bit sheer but not completely see-through, and the little lace panel on the back is a really nice detail. I think I'll probably get a lot of wear out of this shirt as it looks good dressed up tucked into a bodycon skirt, but would also look great with a a pair of skinny jeans for a more casual outfit.

Usually I don't do anything with my hair apart from leave it natural or straighten it. I'm 20 and I still haven't even mastered the art of using curling tongs! But I decided to have a go at backcombing my hair into a messy beehive type thing, and I quite like the results. I had to use like a million kirby grips though!

  1. lovely outfit, the colour really suits you and you look so elegant in the second picture (although baby i wouldn't say that if i'd seen your 'crab dance'!) -x-

  2. The lace part on the shirt is lovely ! My hair is really thick so I need to use tonnes of kirbygrips too. Quite often seem to lose one in my hair and find it when I'm washing it !

  5. Oh Gillian, you even manage to make a button down look incredibly gorgeous and elegant! Sounds like quite a blast of an evening..hehe. Your hair looks so so pretty like that. xx Marisa

  6. Love the shirt.. Love the whole outfit and that necklace is gorgeous :)



  7. I'm older than you and I still haven't mastered curling tongs. It is so hit and miss with me sometimes it looks good but most of the time it looks rather ordinary! I have to say whenever I visit your blog I think that your hair and make-up looks lovely.

  8. The crab dance sounds awesome! Love the lace detailing on that shirt


  9. Love the lace detailing on the back, so lovely! x

  10. The detailing on this is lovely, your hair looks fab and I have never quite mastered tongs etc either!

  11. Ah! That lace top is so lovely. I keep seeing it in H&M and meaning to buy it, but was worried it wouldn't look as nice on. You look great! Panda xo

  12. Oo nice shirt, looks like you'll get a lot of wear out of it. Personally I think you should do a tutorial of how to do the 'crab dance' haha x

  13. Haha the crab dance sounds so funny, I wanna see it! My friend does a dance that involves patting her hips a lot and we always do that when we get drunk around her hahah

  14. your hair looks great, I am hopeless at doing my hair. haha I love the sound of the crab dance, I have the chuckie dance which is named after my guinea pig it only comes out when I am really drunk.

  15. I love this outfit!

    the 'crab dance' sounds hilarious! me and my friends always end up doing this awful sway move after a couple of drinks haha

  16. This outfit is so lovely and you have such a nice figure :) xxx
