Under African Skies

It's lovely to have pennies in my pocket but why is it that when you have got some dollar, you can't see anything to spend your money on. I turn into such a frugal little creature and can never seem to find anything I like and when I do, I have to question myself up to 10 times for a couple of days as it gathers dust in the online shop's basket. 
This weekend I have my boyfriend's uncle's 40th birthday to attend after work so I wanted to treat myself to something new. Feeling vibrant colours and through my appreciation of lady-like lengths and shapes I discovered this beautiful skirt on ASOS.
It is a part of their ASOS Africa range and I am just so damn excited for it to arrive. Always inspired by Natalie Joos, I know I needed to branch out and be a bit more adventurous with clashing prints and colours so I am still on the search for a suitable top half of the outfit. Any ideas?
I fear that I will end up with a simple, plain t-shirt up top but I don't feel discouraged by that having been inspired by this image from Lucy Laucht I discovered via Pinterest.
Pretty, pretty.

  2. Gorgeous skirt! I'm in the opposite predicament right now - I have no job and absolutely no money but want so many things! C'est la vie!
    Good luck with your hunt for a top! I'm sure you'll look stunning either way!

  3. This is exactly what I do whenever I have a reasonable amount of money! And then you end up buying something you actually never wear! Haha, love your style.

  18. That skirt is absolutely incredible, and yeah I'd say a basic tee is the best really! Or a cropped tshirt.
