Date Outfit

Hi everyone. I mentioned yesterday I was excited as I was waiting to hear back from an internship with Look magazine.. and today I heard. I got it! It was so strange they didn't give me an interview or anything, they literally said they'd take me on for 4 weeks in August, and sent me the details! I was so amazingly happy when I found out as I think this is going to be a fantastic experience for me to learn what it's like working in the fashion segment of a magazine, will look amazing on my CV, and hopefully open many doors to some future jobs! It's Monday - Friday 9-5 in London, so it's going to be tiring and time consuming, but I really can't wait! I'm already thinking about first day outfits to make a good impression, but I have a good few months to prepare! eeee :)

Having went shopping the other day, I've put together my outfit for valentines! I'm going for a meal in the evening with my boyfriend and wanted something dressy but smart to wear. 

Top - Topshop
Necklace, skirt and bag - Primark
Shoes - H&M

I wanted to be comfortable but look good (obviously!) and this skirt would hide my food baby of the 4 course meal we're having!

I've wanted a cropped top for a while now, and black is always a good colour to match with lighter skirts. I really like the style of this one, and with my student discount it was a bargain £7.20! 

As soon as I saw this necklace I was in love, and for £2.50 I snapped it up. It looks exactly like something found in urban outfitters! Unfortunately after taking these photos the chain just snapped, I had hardly touched it (primark quality again for you I guess!) so I'm going to have to go get it exchanged tomorrow which is a shame.

I came across this skirt a couple of days ago in the sale in primark, and it was a measly £3! However the size 10, once I got it home, was too big, and I was gutted. For £3 I was somehow going to pin and sew it to take it in so it was more fitting. I popped in again later in the week, and they had loads more sizes out, and I managed to grab a size 8, which fits perfectly! 

Hopefully this outfit will see me well through the meal, and I think both these pieces will mix and match into my wardrobe quite nicely for a few months to come!


  1. Congrats on getting the internship at Look Magazine, im incredibly jealous! This Valentines Day outfit is gorgeous, i love how you've not put the usual red piece into your outfit either, it's very sophisticated! Shame that the skirt doesn't fit, hopefully you'll be able to pin it to fit! xx

  2. Love your skirt!
