What I'm Wearing: Orange You Glad?

I hope you all have been having a wonderful weekend. I know I did. I spent all of Friday and Saturday shopping with my mom and celebrated my friend Amanda's Birthday with girlfriends today. What a lovely weekend, indeed. Here is my first outfit post in a few days so I can show off some of my new clothing.

I saw this orange skirt hanging up high in H&M and knew instantly that I had to have it. The bonus was it had one of their gigantic orange stickers with a mark down price on it- yessss! A few racks over I found this adorable striped shirt and thought it would look great with the skirt. Turns out that I was right. This look is super comfortable paired with the leggings and warm enough for the chilly, windy weather today. The riding boots pair nicely with the look and kept me comfortable all day (especially since I am pretty sure I pulled a groin muscle shopping somehow).

    @EverydayMom- Thank you. Run -Don't walk back to H&M and get it. You won't regret it.

  17. Yes I would wear that outfit. I wouldn't of been brave enough to team the skirt with all the other colours because it stands out so much but looking at it on you, it looks fab and I would defo wear it :) x

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
