Did I ever mention I love denim? And leopard print? Good. Because I do – especially together.
Which brings me to this outfit. I love a good denim pencil skirt. Unfortunately a good denim pencil skirt I don’t yet have – what I’ve got is very cheap ones, like this one. You can tell it’s cheap – look at all them creases! It rides up like no one’s business, too. But when I’m not grappling with keeping the hem down, it’s the ideal colour and shape for me, so it gets to be in some photos today.
As does this leopard print top, which isn’t a top – it’s actually a mini-dress. It was one that was gifted to me as it shrunk in the wash – and if there’s one thing petite girls can benefit from, it’s washing shrinkage. Honestly, this dress is such a perfect fit it makes me wonder if I should try to shrink everything I own… but we all know that would end in tears.
Anyway, dark denim and bold leopard print like this always makes me think of rockabilly style and this was a comfy, practical (for me) outfit I wore when walking about pretty Ely recently. Ely is actually a very small city because it has a cathedral, but that didn’t have quite the same ring for the title of this post! B and I love Ely and would happily live there, but it’s just too far for me to get to work every day. True story: we went on a ghost hunt to find Oliver Cromwell’s ghost in his old house there at the start of the year.
