I cannot believe that mean girls has been out for ten years! It feels like yesterday I was watching it for the first time with my best friend at the time, laughing at all the one liners then quoting them back at school. Man do I feel old right now! To commemorate the 10 year anniversary being on a Wednesday, I thought I’d blog about my pinkest of outfits! I’d definitely get to sit with the plastics with this outfit, or even be Queen Bee. Regina George eat your heart out.
So this is my outfit! I HAVE shown this outfit before in my blog about National Conference, but I wanted to really give a detailed review about the skirt and jumper. I’ll start with the jumper. I never thought I would like it as it is a really “different” fit, however I really love it. It’s cropped which is great for tiny girls like me, but oversized so is super comfortable. I really love layering this jumper with different printed and coloured skirts because it looks so smart but still really feminine.
Here’s a snap of me layering my jumper with a cute shirt I picked up from Primark for a tenner! I could even wear this shirt with the PVC skirt which I plan to do! The jumper is made of super soft and high quality wool which has washed well and has kept its shape and vibrant colour perfectly. The colour is so much brighter than I expected, however I really love it. It really gives a lovely POP to anything I wear it with. The neckline is nice and low which makes it so wearable with shirts and the sleeves are a nice 3/4 length on me! I personally hate long sleeves as they’re always far too long for me and end up covering my hands.
The skirt I sized up to a 24 and wished I’d gone to a 26, but then I feel I’d of lost the fitted look on the legs. Dont get me wrong, it was still very wearable, however sitting down was slightly interesting! The colour is absolutely stunning, a real pastel pink which is so in right now and so wearable. I wore this to a conference and got so many compliments, however I could dress it up and wear it on a night out too. I love that its cut to sit high waisted, making it more flattering and the elasticated waist gives it a little bit of flexibility. This piece is definitely a statement piece and will get you noticed, and for the price is definitely worth it as i’ve seen them much more expensive!
I would definitely recommend both of them, as well as other items on Simply Be. I used to think they were quite “mumsy” and too old for me, but they’ve definitely changed their attitude and are bringing out some amazing looks.
