Get Up Offa That Thing

Although the UK is having a heatwave, it doesn't seem like the North East got the memo. Don't get me wrong, its been warmer than usual, but I've seen hardly any rays of sunshine peeping through those clouds. I'm so jealous of all the bloggers I've seen bathed in beautiful sunlight, whilst I sit inside obsessively watching for some sunlight to appear through the clouds so I can take some quick outfit photos.

Today's outfit features this gorgeous Topshop skirt, which I've had my eye on for a while. The problem I have with high-waisted skirts, particularly A-Line skirts, is that I have a rather small waist, yet disproportionately large butt. To find a skirt that'd truly fit, I'd need a 4 around my waist but a 6-8 on my butt, and Topshop just doesn't make skirts like that. However, I am just sick and tired of seeing so many gorgeous skirts, trying them on, then putting them back all sad and teary eyed. So when I tried on this white cord button up skirt, I knew I just had to have it, and tuck in thicker tops, or wear something over the top to distract from the hand sized gap between my waist and my skirt.

So I paired this 70's inspired skirt with a thin knit jumper (as it ain't that hot up here yet), my new Office boots, and a chunky beaded bracelet.

It also seems that I just can't stop dancing whenever I am taking outfit photos, so I thought it would be appropriate to name this post after one of my favourite dancing tunes, "Get Up Offa That Thing".

I hope you are all having a lovely summer, and getting more of this heatwave than I am up North. Has it been sunny where you live? Let me know in the comments below so I can get all good and jealous about your tanning opportunities.
