Weekend Tartan Challenge

Last weekend I set myself a challenge to wear one tartan piece every day starting from Friday. As it's one of my favourite trends this season I didn't find it too difficult and may try it again soon with a different print or colour, such as leopard print or pink. I kicked off my tartan weekender on Friday night with a red kilt from Forever 21 which cost around £16. I wore it with a top from Zara (£29.99) and a chain necklace from Topshop. I'm kicking myself for not asking one of my friends to take a full length picture of me but when champagne is involved all logic seems to go out of the window!

Saturday was mostly spent recovering from the aforementioned champagne abuse so I needed a comfortable outfit for lazing around at my boyfriend's house. Step forward this tartan stretch cotton dress from (around £20)

I stayed round my boyfriends on Saturday night and shock, horror forgot my mascara! Therefore, I am mascara free in the picture below but it wasn't quite as bad as I thought and I didn't scare small children. Anyway, the skirt is from New Look and I think it cost about £17 (I really need to keep track of prices) The top is last years Primark and is a real pain to iron hence the creases! This skirt reminds me of some school uniforms, so quite a fitting look for September and for a day I can pretend that it hasn't been ten years since I left school. (Shh, don't tell anyone!)
