I have caved.....

I bought this today. I got my first pay packet from my temp job on friday and although I am on a shopping ban (imposed by my boyfriend and kind of by me) I was in a crappy mood today and just thought I have to go and have a poke around the shops. I hadn't been near any in weeks and weeks! H&M have this lovely 50's style floral skirt with a elastic waist, it had 2 different tops to go with, it really was rather pretty but I couldn't afford to buy both parts so I let it be. Maybe in a few weeks....

Anyway back to my skirt. This photo really does not do it justice. It's a really stiff fabric, fitting high waist and poofs out in a skater skirt style. I've been looking for a good navy skirt for ages. I think I may have finally found it. I'm planning on wearing it with an 1940's cream blouse I got from a vintage fair a while back. I need to try the combo together, if it's not right I may have to forsake the skirt but I'm hoping it will be a great match. The skirt seems really long in the Topshop image but it's quite short on me. I'll feel confident in tights with it but a little scared if I go bare legged!

I have to say there is a little guilt that I bought brand new but I find vintage skirts quite tricky to find so the high street has to come to my rescue....
