A Little Bit Of Fashion, A Whole Lot Of Awkward - Take Two



After sharing some 'real life' with you late last week it seems only appropriate that we delve straight back into something superficial. So here, this is about as surface level as it gets. Here's me wearing a fruit salad shirt and way too tight skirt. It's the second of my awkward 'what I wore posts. You can see the first one here.





Shirt by Gorman
Skirt from Sportsgirl
Shoes by Sole Society

  1. I, of course, think you look quite fetching. And that story broke my heart. What a struggle, but you were obviously worth every minute of it. Yes to stripy skirts forever!

  9. Everytime I see that Gorman print I think of you - and as there was a Gorman garage sale around the corner from my house last week, and I went to the Gorman clearance outlet yesterday, and I live in hipster-central Melbourne, I think of you a lot.

    But those shoes. Oh my.

  14. Oh the skirt is stunning Em, you have totally inspired me to go out and buy one! I've been eyeing all the tight coloured stripy ones for a while and umming and arring, but it looks awesome on. The fruit salad shirt is wild, love it! You're gorgeous, not one bit awkward xo
