Spirit Animals.

DRESS (WORN AS SKIRT) FROM SNOOZER LOSER* | ANGORA MIX JUMPER FROM YUMI
TWEED COAT FROM H&M | LACE UP BOOTS FROM TOPSHOP

I've officially been stuck in Cornwall for too long (and the earliest the trains are going to be running again is Monday!), as it would appear that I'm reverting back to my old chunky knitwear and puffy midi skirts. I don't necessarily see this as a problem - in general people here are a little less 'polished' with their dressing than they are in the city, and that suits me just fine.

The print on the skirt of this Snoozer Loser dress is one of my favourites. It's a little weird and wonderful, and ideal for adding a quirky edge to layered winter looks. Since it's a fairly statement piece, I dressed it down with a chunky cream jumper, my tweed coat, thick black tights and little black boots. Cosy, cosy, cosy.

I also wanted to show you a lovely little sketch the fabulous Paige gave me as thanks for having her stay with me in London. I don't often frame things, however this was just too perfect. From left to right, it features me, Steph of Stephanie Dreams and Paige herself. Isn't it the sweetest? I can't wait to put it up in our flat next week.

  14. This is such a lovely skirt Megan, I love the print, you did very well making it from a dress too- clever girl, I'm AWFUL at anything like that.
    Do you wear anything under the skirt, to make the puffyness?
    I love this look, it's pretty and eye catching, but easy at the same time.

    I hope you enjoy your weekend at home xx

    1. Thank you, Steph! I actually didn't wear anything under this skirt, the fabric is a fairly stiff linen and there's a lot of it so it stands out well on it's own. However, I do get a lot of wear out of this petticoat - http://store.americanapparel.net/rsanl300.html - more often than not, if I am wearing a puffy skirt I'll have layered this underneath! xx
