Button up shirts and short skirts

Well, well, look who decided to blog! Anyway, I was so in love with the outfit from this post that I decided I needed more short skirts and button up shirts. So, I went out to look for some. Unfortunately, cute blouses are in abundance but not so cute skirts. I managed to find the two below at Savers and then have them taken up.

Oh, by the way! My hair is red now. It's faded quite a bit but I really like the faded colour. 

Included this photo so you can see the print on my blouse - little colourful sunglasses! So cute.

This is my favourite of the two outfits. I'm such a sucker for yellow and black! I feel like a bee. Or Batman.

I'm definitely going to hunt down some more tighter fitted mini skirts, now. I like having a go-to combination of items as much as I like experimenting and trying out something different.

Art art art

A Wacom tablet has been on my wishlist for ages, now, but I've always put off getting one, thinking it'd be too difficult for me to control. (I briefly tried one at art school & didn't like it at the time). Well, I finally took the plunge and got a small one, and it's actually inspired me to finish some drawings that have been sitting in my sketchbook for ages. I've been fairly happy with what I've produced so far, too.

If you want to stay updated with my art stuff, there are a few things you can do. You can follow me on Tumblr, but have to put up with lots of other things including random personal posts and much fangirling. You can follow me on Pinterest (or just my art board). Or you can just follow my Society6 store.

Hopefully I keep producing at a regular-ish rate. I do have years of sketchbooks gathering dusts I can turn to for inspiration, at least!

Pink and green

Just a quick outfit post, today, of something I wore last week. I went on a mini shopping spree and was excited to wear my new purchases out. Luckily, I had lunch with a friend planned, which was the perfect opportunity to wear them. I was more than pleasantly surprised to see just how well they worked together.

For once, the wind made for a good photo! I said on Instagram that I felt a bit like a teddy girl by way of the 80s. Or maybe a combination of the style of Andie Walsh and Duckie Dale, now that I think about it. I'm definitely wearing this together, again, anyway.

My hair turned out really well that day.

And the blouse & blazer on their own. I nearly bought a plain mustard blouse, instead of this one, but I'm so glad I changed my mind. This is something a bit different.
