Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam

shirt and boots - UO; skirt - H&M; ring - Topshop
I wore this outfit to a friend's birthday party at the weekend - with my lace up boots because it was in a field and so quite muddy (I really need to clean them now!) The skirt is from H&M via eBay, and it's the only piece of clothing I've ever bought off eBay because I find it quite hard to buy things that fit me and so I'm always quite nervous to bid when I see shirts labelled as '6-8 but will fit a 10'. But I'm probably being stupid, because this skirt is perfect!

Have you heard the album 'Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam' by Ghostpoet? It was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize earlier this year, when it was still unreleased-that's how good it is. It didn't win, but that doesn't make the music any less touching and heartfelt, fusing rap and electro in a sort of 'post-dubstep' Jamie xx/Mount Kimbie style extravaganza that's weirdly reminiscent of Flawless in some places. Have a listen-it's been my soundtrack to finishing my personal statement. I'm about ready to send it off....

  12. Stylish combo. I always loved to wear some fancy skirt with a simple top or shirt.

    And the boots are great.
