Outfit: Skeletons

Jumper: H&M
Skirt: H&M
Boots: Ebay
Neklace: Topshop

I’m off to the pub soon for dinner and a couple of cheeky pints with my friend, so I thought I’d give this jumper an outing for the first time. I bought it before Christmas but never got round to wearing it as I’ve pretty much lived in pyjamas for the last month or so! But now I’m back at uni I actually have to get dressed a few times a week haha. It’s kind of hard to tell from the photos, but the jumper has tiny sequins sewn all over it. I think this outfit is good pub attire – not too dressy but a little bit nicer than daytime clothes. I hate feeling underdressed/overdressed when I’m out so I always try to plan ahead. I love when you go to the pub for just one or two drinks and end up, 4 hours later, doing tequila shots in a club because you have absolutely no self control – this is why you cannot wear hoodies to the pub!

These shoes are fast becoming one of my favourite pairs. They’re great because they’re not too high so are easy to walk in but they still look a bit more dressed up than normal boots. I was a bit sceptical about ordering cheap shoes off one of those Ebay wholesalers (I don’t think that’s even the right word, but you know what I mean!) but these have turned out to be really comfy and so far there are no signs of them falling apart.

This is one of my favourite necklaces but I don’t wear it that often as the skeleton’s little arms and legs often get caught on things! Very annoying, but very pretty. I’m not really the biggest fan of Topshop clothes as I think they’re overpriced and not that great quality, but I love their jewellery. I try to stock up as much as possible in the sales as there’s usually great bargains in the jewellery department.

Do you like getting dressed up for dinner or the pub, or prefer to keep it casual?

    I love this outfit. You also have one of the most photogenic and pretty faces I've seen.

    I do get dressed up, or at least cleaned up, to go out with girls. I'm casual all day at work; why not play it up a bit on a night out?

  • EilidhPie says:

    Love the outfit – the jumper looks cosy as well as stylish. I know what you mean about getting dressed up for the pub – j make an effort even for the cinema now after the showing we were going to see sold out & we ended up on a night out – I was wearing an old tshirt, my bf's check shirt & converse and had day old hair, with no dry shampoo on me! Disatser! Safe to say I avoided the camera that night!

  • Lowri says:

    I'm actually in love with your necklace! It's amazing and you have beautiful skin πŸ™‚

    Brilliant pub outfit. The shoes are gorgeous too. Your make-up is always so flawless, jealous…

  • Nice outfit. Love the jumper and necklace.

  • Cute outfit and I love how you do your makeup, your skin looks absolutely gorgeous. I love skeletons, I have a somewhat similar necklace that I very rarely wear – I don't know why I don't wear it more often. I usually like to dress up to go out to eat and if I do go to a bar/club I almost always try and dress up – which is probably why I very rarely go to bars/clubs haha. We don't have many pubs in the states πŸ™ There have been a time or two where I've gone to a restaurant in some VERY casual looks, like wearing my slippers with my jeans casual haha.


  • Viv says:

    Love that shade of lipstick, and that sweater is pretty as well. that necklace is too cute, it's a shame you can't like connect the arms to the rest of him so it's less jingly and catching on things.

  • I can't believe you got these boots from eBay. When I seen the outfit photOs I thought they'd be from office or something! Love them πŸ™‚
    I love to keep it casual but then spice things up with a nice wedge or heel πŸ™‚ xx
