fluffy knit crew jumper: topshop
black quilted skirt: topshop
white crop shirt: the whitepepper
croc slouchy holdall: topshop

the word challenges usually fills me with fear (mostly a fear of any form of physical exercise) but a high street one..? KAPOW yes please.

I'll be attending this years clothes show as a guest of echo falls; it's an event I always wanted to go to when I was younger (the benefit of going now I'm older.. well I can have myself a nice old glass of white in the echo falls wine bar hurrah!) the challenge was to find a high street outfit for the show with a budget of £75.. and the above pics are what I've put together! 

as always I was drawn to topshop like a magnet, I've been looking for a clean a-line skirt for winter layering and this quilted one fit the bill perfectly! the fluffy jumper was a foregone conclusion.. SOMEONE STOP ME! pastel baby blue and soft as a kitten I can't stop stroking myself because I'm virtually wearing a hug.

I've worn boots here today but I may switch for flats when I head to the clothes show as I'll be whizzing about taking pictures of all the goings on! I wanted to be presentable but comfortable and this skirt and jumper combo is just about the most comfortable thing that's ever graced my skin... puuuuuur.

now for a little extra fun I have a pair of tickets for the clothes show live to giveaway yippppee!! please enter via the rafflecopter giveaway below; I'll be announcing the winner this weekend!
