#OOTDFridays Number 28

I've been absent for a little while. Rather than boring you with an endless list of excuses I'm just going to continue form where I left off. And go!

I went with a modern-retro look today. This beautiful cobalt blue textured a-line skirt is as bold in colour as it is in shape and looks like it just came out of the sixties. Unfortunately I haven't captured it very well on my camera; self-portraiture is very difficult on a DLSR! Partnering the skirt with this equally as bold over-sized polka dot shirt adds a more modern twist to such an iconic pattern and is ridiculously comfortable. Add a bowler hat, a pair of ankle boots brings the outfit together and completes the look.

Currently it's the Easter holidays and I have less than two days left to the end of lent. I'm not particularly religious but when I realised how dependent I was on chocolate, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to cut back. It's been hard, I'm not going to lie. At particularly low times, I would just dream of Nutella. Yes, I have completely lost it. Although, I nearly ate some last week at a friends birthday meal. I ordered the sticky toffee pudding thinking it was the safe bet, but they had grate chocolate all over the plate and so resulted to wiping it away with a napkin. How embarrassing but you can't deny that I am dedicated!

Shirt and Hat: Miss Guided | Skirt: River Island | Bracelet: Gift from a friend
Boots: New Look
Thought the black and white would add to the retro appeal.
As always, I'd love your opinions so please don't shy away from sharing them in the comments below. I better get on with coursework/revision. Holidays just aren't holidays anymore.
