It's good to step out of your comfort zone and do things that absolutely terrify you, right?! 'Cause posting this outfit makes me more than a little scared but I wanted to show you guys my vintage skirt and make a point about stuff. Yeah, I'm being super eloquent today! Before we scroll, can we just appreciate that I absolutely froze my tits off trying to get these photographs?! Thanks!
Whilst I've completely failed when it comes to this outfit, I really really love this skirt. You know when you put on a piece of clothing and it just feels right?! It's a perfect fit and I've got a feeling it'll be part of my go-to outfit for S/S. Looking back on these photographs, I now realise that the skirt actually makes me look a lot shorter, which is quite endearing, really. I thought this outfit was a bit of a femme overload so I paired it with my beloved black chucks which are a little bit of a staple for me. I'll more than likely bring this outfit back come summer so I'll make sure I get it right for then. For now, you'll just have to deal with it ;)

The thing that scares me the most about sharing these photographs is my hair loss. Before my bowel conveniently burst, I was on a drug treatment that completely messed up my skin. After a few drip infusions, I ended up with open sores on my scalp that basically took my hair with them. At the time, I was pretty cut up about it but then I thought, 'Who gives a shit?!'. Lots of people lose their hair due to much worse circumstances, and, at the end of the day, I'm not my hair. I am a person. Just because I don't fit the bullshit magazine aesthetic doesn't mean I shouldn't post these photographs. Here I am in my beaten up unfinished outfit glory! I survived major surgery last year, and I overcame a bit of a weight battle, and I now stand here wearing pink finally at a healthy weight. That's something to celebrate! Who knows, maybe come summer I'll be in a crop top with my scar on show....but probably not! As you can see, my hair is growing at the back now so I'm currently sporting little baby ringlets that my Mum thinks are cute but I find a bit of a nuisance! The overgrown toddler look is totally in, right?!
