open sesame, we've places to go

top - Amazon, skirt - urban outfitters, sandals - Boohoo, sunglasses - Primark, necklace - Forever 21

I love this skirt I picked up in Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago in the sale for 12 euros, yes you have read that correctly, 12 euros. I'd had my eye on it for a while but couldn't justify the original price of 72 euros but I was ecstatic when I came across it reduced and in my size! I'm not usually a fan of pencil shaped skirts and in particular longer skirts as I get quite self conscious that my legs look really short as I'm not the tallest of people however this one fits the bill perfectly. Even though I'd had my eye on it a while, it's one of those items that I'd look at and think wow, I'd love to wear that and never actually buy it for myself so I'm glad I actually went for it this time and took a step out my comfort zone with the length and shape of this piece. I love finding things that I wouldn't usually wear and giving them a try, I always end up surprising myself! I teamed it with an Arctic Monkeys tee, hence the title of this blog post, a royal blue statement necklace and these gorgeous pewter coloured sandals from Boohoo. They're super comfortable and I love the spilled oil colour of these shoes, I'd definitely recommend them. 

Have you surprised yourself with any purchases you wouldn't usually buy recently?
