We Like to Watch You Laughing

Jumper - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Bag - UO
Shoes - UO
Jewellery - Topshop

Finally got my hands on the H&M pleather, full circle skirt - thank goodness! If I can’t find something I want I tend to crave it more and then ruthlessly hunt it out. I’ve decided that I want to go for a more grungy/punky look (yeah, yeah I know, I’m a total loser.) Anyway, this skirt will hopefully be a key piece to me achieving this look, along with other black things!?

Had a bit of a mixed bag weekend. I was walking home on Friday, crossed at the kamikaze zebra crossing by my flat where I almost got run over by a bike, stepped out the way and was knocked by a car! I politely stood up, told the boy it was “a fucking zebra crossing” then basically hurried away before anyone came over! Nothing that a cup of coffee and a good sleep didn’t cure though. On Saturday night my friend was having a house party that turned into us all getting a bit too drunk and doing the obligatory, screaming, laughing and dancing. My friend loves “raving!” “I don’t want to talk, I want to rave!” is her favourite saying. This means that in between the million dance songs you have to be sneaky to get in any other form of music played! I wore an elephant hat the entire night – very fetching! Yesterday was not so productive but I did manage to consume a lot of Japanese food and watched Lost in Translation.

My dad gets into London this evening and I am far too excited to see him. I am unashamedly the biggest daddy’s girl in the world.


  1. Yess you got the skirt! I love this outfit, all the black looks great, those shoes, yes please! I hate zebra crossings too, cyclists never bloody stop, nor do they stop at red lights... hope you're ok now! And we should definitely meet up for a coffee, somewhere around London xx

  2. you look so good in all black! i often feel so gothic but it really suits you and you look super chic

  3. Love this look! The skirt is uh-mazing.
    And oh my! An adventurous weekend for you then - hope the driver was embarrassed, jeez!

  7. That skirt is wonderful! I've seen it on a few people and I always thought it was so feminine. You look good in black too! Some people on the road are idiots, I have no idea how they even passed when they're speeding down the road blasting out their gangsta tunes.

    Yeah I'm dreading working full time, hopefully I'll slip into something I really like.. hopefully. I have a dream of sort of living in London but the prices give me mini heart attacks!

    Can't believe you're going to see Damon Albarn! Lucky girl! I still think he's not a bad looker for his age ha!

  8. The skirt was well hunting down it looks amazing on you and I can imagine you will get lots of wear from it xoxo

  9. This suits you SO well! I'm speechless, it's made for you x

  10. London drivers are TERRIBLE about zebra crossings. There's one just down from my house and it's a constant struggle to ever get over it without running.

    Love the skirt though! Especially with the jumper. It looks so perfect for autumn.

    Have fun with your dad!
