OOTD: The First Sign of Spring

How many times have I said that I'll get round to doing an OOTD? For once I've actually gone through with it. I can't believe it either.

Anyway, Spring is finally here in England, and the snow has gone! I'm not usually one to like sunshine (autumn is my favourite season) but even I'm glad that I no longer have to wear a coat everywhere. I have realised that my summer wardrobe is seriously limited. I find that I buy more winter clothes because they're a lot more appealing to me, whereas summer clothes...aren't as much. I always get asked what I wear in summer, and the truth is, my wardrobe doesn't change. I've been stupid enough to go out in a corset in 30 degree heat before.

I've been trying to force myself out of my comfort zone recently to try and improve my confidence. One of the first steps of this was to buy a skirt. I live in jeans and I sometimes venture into shorts in really hot weather, but never skirts. I'm only 4'11 and I really dislike my legs because I'm so short, so I am determined to get used to seeing them. I ordered this skirt on Ebay, without realising that it was Lycra. I was expecting it to be cotton, but I actually quite like it, which is odd because I never would have even tried it on if I'd seen in it in store. The top is an old gypsy top of mine, which is supposed to be off the shoulder but it just hangs on me. Maybe because I've had it for five years or so, maybe more. I really ought to buy a new one because I wear it all the time, and having to wear the sleeves up really doesn't look right! I also feel like I should apologise for the state of my face...all my make-up melted off and I'd just walked in from uni. I'd planned to take the pictures before I left but I ran out of time. I'm also the least photogenic person in the entire world.

I have no idea what I'm doing with my arm here. In regards to the way that I stand  I recommend you read this post.
Skirt - Ebay
Corset - Also The Gothic Shop
Tights and Socks - Peacocks
Boots - Schuh (Dr. Martens Darcie Boots)
Bag - Restyle's Red Rose Cameo Bag from The Gothic Shop
Lipstick - Glamour 101 by Lime Crime
Necklace - Alchemy Gothic's Emerald Venom from GlitterGoth


I don't know if I'll post this sort of thing very often. To be completely honest, I don't wear anything interesting and I don't put any effort into my outfits whatsoever, unless I'm going somewhere important. I'm very lazy when it comes to clothes. I'd love to be one of those people who manages to put an outfit together every morning, but I'm not. I throw on a clean pair of jeans and any random top, and that's it. That's part of the reason why I wear black so much. It goes with everything and I don't have to sit and think about whether or not this matches that and so on. I think my sister ended up with all the fashion sense in my family!

What do you wear in spring? Would you like to see more posts like this?

Disclosure: I bought everything in this post myself, expect for the top which was a birthday present (five years ago!) and the shoes which my parents bought me for my prom, which was four years ago. You can't say I don't get my money's worth out of things...

  2. Aww, I think you and your outfit looks really pretty! Also, I don't think your legs look short at all, they look really good in the skirt :) I'd like to see more OOTD posts if you decide to do more.

    1. Thank you! I'll hopefully do more in the future, it's whether or not I wear anything worthy of a post, haha! I'm so lazy when it comes to what I wear. I think I feel self concious about my legs because my sister is so tall and I see her wearing skirts all the time and I can't help but compare my legs to hers...it's something I need to work on I guess!

  4. That looks like a really cute club outfit. You look really in proportion so don't give it a second thought, you look really polished and pretty.Personally I don't wear skirts often as I'm too tall and the places that cater for tall people have really boring corp style clothing. I am jealous :)

    1. Thank you! It seems very hard to find clothes is you are either short or tall. Longer skirts make my legs look nearly non-existent. I agree, it work really well as a club/gig outfit!

  5. Holy moly you look amazing. I love the outfit.

    1. Thank you! At the moment I use Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation by Max Factor mixed in with a pure white to lighten it. I like the Max Factor one on its own but mixed with the Stargazer white it doesn't seem to last more than a couple of hours! I'm on the hunt for a new one that lasts longer and is light enough for me!

  7. I think you look fantastic! I like wearing long skirts these days. :)
    One of my co-workers has mild CP. We actually have quite a few people at my workplace with disabilities. I admire your courage and find it inspiring.

    1. Thank you! I wish I could wear long skirts! I always worry that I'd look really short in them, but they're so pretty!

      Thank you! To me it's just one of those things. It could be a lot worse so I'm grateful that it is what it is.

  10. You gorgeous, gorgeous creature! You have a lot more confidence than me it seems! XD Don't worry about your height, you have wonderful legs! You should give a pencil skirt a go, I bet they would look amazing on you! :D xxx

    1. Thank you! It me a very long time to post one of these, haha! I love pencil skirts, I've been trying to find one that's a good length! It'd be really nice to wear to uni or more formal events.

  11. Are you kidding? your face is so beautiful (that sounded absolutely weird, but you look so gorgeous! I mean, your skin looks so perfect O.o) - and that lippie looks really good on you :D I'm a very basic jeans and t-shirt girl, maybe shorts in the summer, but I don't vary my outfits much. Fist bump for being short! (I'm only 5' 1"!) so I definitely feel for you. Skirts can be a challenge, because I either look like I have massive hips or I don't have a torso! xx

    1. Thank you! My skin is most definitely not perfect, haha! My outfits don't vary at all, unless I'm going somewhere and I feel like I need to put effort into it. Exactly! Plus petite clothing all seems to be really unappealing. :/ With skirts I usually look like I have no legs!

    ABOUT TIME THERE WAS SOMEONE SMALLER THAN ME >;D

    1. Thank you! Hahaha how tall are you? I always said I'd be happy if I got to 5ft, so I stopped at 4'11 and a half! D:

    2. THE HALF BEING VERY IMPORTANT

    1. Thank you so much! The tights and socks happened because I thought the tights looked too 'busy' on their own. My skin is far from perfect, I wish it was though!
