I'm a Barbie Girl... #OOTD

Well I had really rubbish day at uni the other day and I thought to cheer myself up I'd do a lil retail therapy! I ended up going to Boots, Topshop, Primark, Schu and Miss.Selfridges... Ok it wasn't a 'lil bit' more of, a lot. But it was justified and needed!

One of the things I got out shopping was something I've been admiring since my friend sent me a link stating "THIS IS SO YOU!" and this was the Miss.Selfridges Barbie Girl skirt! Which is part of the I ♥ Barbie collection!
I fell in love with this skirt ever since my eyes fell upon it - but I was in the most awkward place - the middle of the lakes; meaning no Miss.Selfridges that would actually stock this as apparently it was only "city-stocked" (boo) so the moment I hit city soil I went on the outlook and BOOM, It was mine!

So on the miserable day I had to leave the house, I decided to brighten up my mood by brightening up my black shirt and navy blazer! I decided to use these dark colours to really make the skirt stand out - and honestly the fact I paired it with my new teal/turquoise converse was simply a happy accident! I topped the outfit off with my new vintage bag and a few pieces of simple yet statement jewellery (Including the new Sphere of Life - where I have a blog to come!)

I LOVE the print of this skirt, the comic look is very 'in' at the moment as I've been seeing it everywhere! But the print it bright, makes a statement and really does make me feel happy, young and girly in it and to state the obvious it's Barbie print, and Barbie was really one of my childhood faveys - I litterally had HUNDREDS of them and have one or two on a shelf these days! - See, I'm secretly a girly girl at heart!

I'd love to partner it next with a cream or white lacy top or shirt or a cute peplum to make it a bit more formal for a night out...

To be honest I'm loving all the pieces from the new Barbie collection and I'm having trouble choosing which to get next - probably (DEFINITELY) the Bralet and the Dress - they're AH-MAZING! So if you want the skirt you can get it HERE or go in stores (but only city stores - meh!) It really brings me back to the 90's and the days I loved my Barbie clothes!

So I'm sorry I've been AWOL from the blogsphere at the moment, but I feel ultimately swamped by rehearsals, uni, work, articles - pretty much everything - but I shall not slip again!

So tell me what you think of this look and the famous Barbie Skirt!

I'm a Barbie Girl in a Barbie world!
