Fashion | A Winter’s Tartan

I bought this tartan skirt on a whim back in December. I was browsing through my local New Look and was determined to find a new outfit that I could wear to work. On the premise of hitting the gym hard again after Christmas, I wanted a new look (see what I did there) to show off the efforts I was making at bootcamp and boxercise classes. As soon as I saw this tartan skirt, it was a sure thing that I was going to be buying it. Of course, with a nice new skirt, you have to buy a nice new top. This  simple yet gorgeous grey ribbed cropped top was a lovely find to pair the outfit together. It was a look that I wasn’t used to and that wouldn’t have normally be in my comfort zone, but it was definitely a nice change. 

During the Boxing Day sales, I also completely fell in love with these  heeled Chelsea boots on a search on ASOS. I was in the market for a pair of heeled boots and at a bargain price of £22, I couldn’t say no to these. They arrived 2 weeks later (poor service ASOS) and I am still absolutely in love with them. I manage to pair them with most outfits for everyday and work, but I think they really suit this outfit! It’s a perfect outfit for a wintery walk with a Barbour style coat or for a casual day at work. I love matching this outfit with my MAC Amorous lipstick, which is a deep purpley-burgandy and  with some smokey brown and gold eyes! 

How would you style this skirt?
