OOTD- Mellow Yellow

Right, below is an outfit that I will deem experimental. I literally got out of bed and picked 2/3 things from my wardrobe and put them together. Now I was pretty pleased with the result, but when I entered the living room the bf uttered 'you look very 80s clubbing. Like Shirley from Eastenders'. Now, if you happen to know who that character is, you know that that is not a compliment!

Well, let me know what you think- Shirley or something else.

*Skirt-Motel
*Plain grey tee-H&M

Lifewise, I'm currently in Nottingham at the moment for the Easter weekend. Today we went to Nottingham caves and Nottingham Castle, both of which were interesting and beautiful, but I'll spare you the details for now. Across the road from the castle was a little abandoned 'Mediaeval' cottage for sale (I say Mediaeval, it was moved from it's original location and rebuilt in this one, so...loses it's originality a bit?) and I wanted to buy it and open a little rustic tea and cake shop. Judging from the business the little old pub along the road gets, it could be rather lucrative!
