Take me to a galaxy far, far away...

So yesterday I went on my final shopping trip in Norwich, this time with the boyf. He bought himself lots of lovely stuff, and I bought myself this cool outfit. We had a lovely day but I couldn't help feeling disappointed that Topshop didn't have the "Horror" black tee in, so I am hoping that when I get back to Northampton this weekend that they will, if not, I will try and wait for a free delivery on New Look also didn't have the dress in stock anymore that I showed you in my last wishlist post, however, I found one that will be even better, due to the fact that this one won't fall down and cause me any awkward moments.
I also had to once again go and replace my laptop, as the one I bought only a couple of weeks ago decided to start playing funny buggers with me, but the nice man at Staples fixed me up with a shiny new one. A better one... However, once I got home, I realised to my horror that I had left my Lord of the Rings DVD in the disk drive, so the next day I shamefully had to go back and ask for it back, to which all the staff started laughing at me and saying "Oh what if Frodo could see you now." It would have been less embarrassing picking up a porno DVD I swear.

Anywho. Enough rambling. On with the outfit!

Glasses - Primark, Tee - Topshop, Skirt - River Island, Bag - Ark, Boots - Melody Direct.

Now I featured this skirt in a wishlist post a couple of posts ago, and I am pleased to say that when I tried it on it did not disappoint. It was a little tighter than I thought it would be, (not so good for the spare tire around my middle) however, when teamed with a baggy shirt, such as this gorgeous textured Topshop tee, it is actually quite flattering.
Now you all know how much I love my Topshop tees, they are so comfy and flattering, so when I saw this one, I had to buy it. I really liked the unusual colour and texture of it, but as it looked slightly odd worn untucked from the skirt, yet not so flattering when tucked in, I thought I would take some inspiration from Lydia Millen, and tie it up at the side! Not sure I pull it off as well as her, but I thought it did a reasonable job of hiding said spare tire.
I should also mention, skirts of this style are not for the faint hearted. I realised when wearing it today that you need only take a couple of steps and the tiny piece of underskirt protecting one's modesty in the slit side is completely gone. It rides up ALOT. I found myself unattractively yanking it down every minute or so. Maybe it is something I will get used to.
Now for day time I will wear this skirt with chunky boots as above, but for something more dressy I will probably wear it with a blouse and my JCs. 

Tomorrow I am very happy to say that I am off shopping with my friend, the one who had a major operation just 2 weeks ago, well she has made a recovery much quicker than any of us expected, so we are off hunting for some boots for her, and some toothpaste for me. Woo exciting ; ) I would also expect that at some point we may end up in the pub for a few bevvies, as this is the last time I will see her before the big move back to uni on Saturday (YAY!!).

I will also continue the venture of packing, and I am taking all my old clothes round the corner to the nice lady who sells stuff for you in her shop to try and raise a few more pennies to start paying off my enormous debt from this summer, so everything in my shop page will hopefully be sold tomorrow.

What are you all up to, anything particularly nice? 

Cheerio, toodle pip!
