Outfit Post: Swan

Please ignore my squinty face in the above photographs. Apparently my face cannot cope with late October sunshine. Anyway, this post is really all about this magnificent skirt. I lusted after pretty much all the swan print items in Topshop when they first came out but I was on a spending ban at the time. Then, on the first day of the Topshop sale, I had  a voucher to spend (courtesy of The Solider) and I happened upon this beauty. It was the only one in my size and we all know that when that happens it's basically FATE and it's the law that you must buy said item. And I'm not one to argue with either fate or the law.

The best thing about this skirt though? Besides the SWANS? It has pockets. Yes. POCKETS. It is the holy grail of skirts.

I have to admit that when the whole wedge trainer thing first appeared, I was sceptical. Very sceptical. But then time passed and I was broken down by picture after picture of the beautiful Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers (although the £390 price tag was ever so slightly out of my price range.) So when Zalando offered me an item for review I headed straight for the high-top section and picked out these Xti beauties. I have no regrets. They're comfortable, make my legs look longer (never a bad thing) and go with pretty much everything. Love.
