Ode to a Tan

Zara tie-waist skirt (similar) | Topshop cropped jumper & leather jacket | Paul's Boutique bag | Missguided leopard heels (sold out, similar)

I'm not normally one to put myself out there like this, but here goes... Dear tan, please never, ever leave me; I need you. There, I said it. I actually think I might be a little bit of a tanaholic, which I admitted to Rob late one night and he just kind of looked at me with a knowing yet sympathetic look on his face. It would appear my bargain finding skills aren't the only thing that leave me akin to David Dickinson.

Anyway, before this turns into a full blown therapy session, I should probably go on and talk a little bit about what I'm wearing. I picked up this skirt in the Zara sale just before I left for my holiday, having searched high and low for something that had the illusion of sleeves wrapped round the waist but wasn't too... mannish. I should have known good old Zara would come up trumps. Generally I've been wearing it with slouchy t-shirts, but since me and Rob were heading out I thought I'd dress it up a bit with this cropped jumper from Topshop. What? No... I didn't even realise that I'd be accentuating my tanned belly by doing that.
