Pale Legs with Weird Knees


skater skirt peplum peplum peter pan colar

Top: c/o Fashion Union
Skirt: Boohoo
Shoes: Soyoushoes


Apologies for the yellowy photos, the weather is awful and grey so I had to use the weird bulbs from my living room. This seems to have highlighted the fact that my legs are incredibly pale/stumpy. Oh well. Anyway this top was sent to me from Fashion Union, it's actually peplum but I've hidden the little frills as they make my belly look a bit round - I love it tucked in though and this boohoo skirt is becoming my most overworn item of the moment, so tempted to buy it in an array of colours and make a technicolour skirt wardrobe like a Joseph in drag.
Anyway today has been a bit of a non day, I took Thomas to work at 6am then came home and fell asleep until 12:30 pm, what a lazy Linda. Then I had a jaunt into town where I tried to buy some shampoo and my card declined in boots, cringe, I had that horrible moment when you know the shop assistant (who was in this case younger than I) was feeling sorry for me and patronisingly said "Do you not want them then". Golly. Rather than trying to redeem myself by explaining that I have a silly habit of swapping money between accounts I just blushed and scuttled out of the shop empty handed.

So yeah that's my day, Thomas is going to cook me some nice chicken and halloumi tonight and we're going to settle down like a pair of oldies and watch ant and dec. Oh and I snapped him doing a bit of flaring earlier and here's the result.

  5. the concentration on his face! haha, I would be so SHIT at flaring, When things get a certain distance from my eyes they go blurry and I look like a seal clapping the air to catch things which normally end of on the floor. There's nowt wrong with your knees either.

  13. Eloise you do not have stumpy legs at all! Looking fiiiiit, especially with those amazing heels! Non-days are what weekends are made for, the most exciting thing me and Liam have done today is fetch my dog from the kennels, where he got dog hairs ALL OVER my new car. Le sigh. ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  15. Flaring? I'm not quite sure what it is. You look lovely anyway! I think it would be odd not to have pale knees with this awful weather we've been having! xo

  30. The new representatives work in a mixture of divisions, and some do regulatory work for Guggenheim, Kiley said. He indicated foundation speculations to oblige the expanded number of workers as a sign the organization was submitted both to contracting for the long haul and staying in Topeka. check cashing places in fresno

  31. The credit must be paid off in a solitary part. On the off chance that the borrower is not created to pay title credits toward the term's end, then there's occasionally a decision choice. He or she can "move over" the change, which unites taking out another vehicle title credit in light of your vehicle's title.Check Cashing San-diego
