One Style/Two Outfits (Part 1: Night)


It was a quiet, but very hot and sunny Friday evening.
I was going for curry.
Mmmmm.
Curry.

I had delved into the depths of my wardrobe, and picked out one of my faves from last year.
A pretty, yellow, not neon but not pastel either, yellow maxi skirt, with a double side split ohhh yes.
And a black crop top.
I'm not going to lie to you, the crop top is new this year, but it was £2 at Primark and therefore totes does naaaat break my £30 a month budget.

I like maxi skirts you see.
They're pretty, girly, and versatile, but can be a fierce style statement.
And right now, I can't stop wearing them!

For day and night I am lovinggggg a good old maxi!
I've even been layering up maxi dresses with tops to create a maxi skirt.
That is until it got to 30 degrees and too hot for any layers at all - even underwear, ahem.

Don't worry peeps, I didn't go all starkers on you, I'm cool with most social acceptability rules and don't fancy the idea of jail.

You know what else is good about maxi skirts?
Or, well...this maxi skirt at least.

It covers up inevitable food babies!
CAN I GET A WOOP WOOP?!

A yes, a good amount of flowy, waist high material means that even when wearing a crop top, the majority of  your mid-riff is covered up, and therefore that evening I saluted my own brilliance in outfit choice.
See as much as these pre-meal photo's show a fair bit of belly, it's nothing a good hitch higher up can't solve.
Told you it was versatile ;)

There I was, armed with a cheap as chips crop top, one of my favourite skirts of all time, and, (of course) my famous shoesies <3
I was almost ready to go...

(I'm aware I look slightly radioactive in some of these pictures - it's a cross between having an actual English sun tan yey, and #iPhoneProblems
Sadly, no editing could fix said problems)









What I wore:

Maxi Skirt: Boohoo (last year)
Crop Top: Primark £2

Before leaving the house I had only two things to do:
1. Take some painkillers for the ridiculousness that were my swollen tonsils.
2. Get my mum, and most avid reader on picture taking duties YEY!!

Sounds good, yes?
Hmm...
See, there was a slight problem.
Having a pretty nasty feeling set of tonsils wasn't going to stop my amazing curry eating capabilities, but eating it it did require a lot of extra effort.
And...to re-focus my energy on the top half of my body.

My bottom half was free to go rogue and rebel against my clothes...

Something sounds ominously familiar about the side split I mentioned up there...
But what could it be?



OH MY GOD
Look who's back?

OH YES ANGE, YOU KNOW I CAN ROCK 'THE LEG' TWICE.

Angelina's ass-kicking time.
She only only did it the once.
My leg was just...in demand shall we say.
;)
Fighting it's way back out of my clothes.
Like some sort of fame hungry beast, it enjoyed it's moment in the limelight of my previous blog post, that it has been nigh on impossible to re-clothe since!
I mean jeez, keeping it under wraps has been more than trying; getting jeans on meant a one sided sulk, while my forever under-wraps left leg pointed and laughed at the demise of the right.

I was tired, I was grumpy, and my leg was being a pain in the erm...hip joint.

As soon as the right leg got wind of my maxi-with-split-wearing plan, it jumped at the chance to get right back on this here blog.

And I have literally lost control!

:O

But, but...wait.
It gets worse.
This skirt has got two, yes TWO side splits...
Is that not, asking for trouble?
I have two legs, and there are two side splits...

What if...?
:|
Uh-ohhh.

Yes, people, it happenned...
You won't believe it.



Double split = DOUBLE LEG MOMENT OH YES BABYYY!

I've created two monsters.
And will never get clothes on my bottom half again.

I'll be forever half naked.
I imagine myself running through Huddersfield town centre in the snow, frantically chasing my own legs around with a blanket, (not entirely sure how I'd manage to run but whatev's) in order to regain some decency and dignity.

:|

Oh god.
I'll see you on the news.
