Yes, it’s true, I am THAT pale. I basically glow when i’m out in the sun. Add to the fact i’ve been sick, and yeah. White as a ghost. I don’t know what’s up with my health, neither does my Doctor. I slept pretty much 38 hours straight last weekend. I didn’t know that was possible. I’ve been getting migraines, ear aches and my vision has been pretty horrid. Eh. It’s a lot better then last weekend, but I still don’t feel ‘right’.
Anyway, I posted on facebook the other week that Misguided had a few things on sale for $10 & I snapped up 2 things. The first item was this skirt. The funny thing is, I scrolled over this item so many times, not realising it was a waist tie skirt! I thought it was just how they styled the outfit!
I remember seeing Fashion Hayley wearing something similar and loving it, so I decided to get this one. I don’t often wear pencil skirts cause of the VBO, I need to be in the right mood to rock my belly, but this totally helps camouflage it!
This was my first time ordering from Misguided, and I certainly will again. 2 items, plus shipping, set me back $24 & took just under 2 weeks to arrive. Though I do know one of my readers ordered after me, and got her shipment around 4 days before mine! I don’t mind waiting, and it only costs $5 if you want to upgrade to express shipping.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love Peter Pan. I went by the online alias of Natatree Darling for years, Darling, after the Darlings in Peter Pan. It’s a story that means a lot to me, so when Black Milk released some Peter Pan designs, I knew I needed to snap one up.
I decided to try the shooter dress, as it was a style I’d never tried before. I love it, though I do find it a bit hard to style. It’s not a style I would normally wear, but after some playing around, I came up with this outfit. It’s fun to try new styles now and then, things a bit out of your comfort zone.
It’s a bit too short for me to wear as a dress, so I paired it with a short pleather skirt. Also, it’s Melbourne, and cold, so layers help keep me warmer. Now I really need to add the Peter Pan leggings to my collection.
Of course, I wore my crocodile earrings! Tick tock!

Who is your favourite character in Peter Pan?
I’ve been really slacking when it comes to getting dressed since I moved to Melbourne, even more so once the cold hit. It’s all about warmth and comfort. To be honest, while I’ve been warm and comfy, it didn’t feel like me. I missed wearing skirts! So the other day, I made a decision to take a little bit more time and to dress how I wanted to. Still warm and comfy, but put a bit more effort into it.
I had to go out to the shops today, I seriously have around 10 loads of washing to do & had ran out of detergant. Gosh, it was such a lovely day, and I took full advantage of it. Sure, it’s still winter, but it was 16c and the sun was shining. It was nice enough that I could wear a skirt (without stockings) and sandals!
Sure, for the walk to the bus stop (I don’t drive), I wore a cropped cardigan over the top, but I was warm, comfortable and felt like me again! I also don’t often wear my hair up if I’m leaving the house, I’ve never liked the way I’ve looked with my hair up, but it’s in need of a wash! Luckily I have an array of bows to help hide that!
Also, I should mention, that top is actually a bodycon dress! I love using it as a layering piece. That skirt is at least 6 years old now too! I just love it. Sorry about the garden, I loathe with a passion those strap leaves that fall from the palm. They shed in the hundreds!
