Today's Outfit

A couple of days ago I ventured into my local Value Village, not for matters of work, but for some serious shopping. I came out with many loose summer tops, a suede jacket with a fur collar (completely out of season but I had to have it), and a loose boxy blazer. For today's outfit I threw on three of my new finds. The first being an airy flower print vest (very 50s house-wife on its own), a sheer linen shirt, and my new blazer. I seem to be growing a small collection of black blazers of all sorts. I have some of the close-fitted school-boy variety, some longer but fitted, and some very loose. This last blazer is wider in the shoulders but it isn't exaggerated at all.




And just for fun, a very disheveled looking me having a huh? moment.

I've been mucking around with a black blaxer lately, but in a completely different way. Man style just doesn't suit me I'm affraid!
I love your necklace, my friends and I used to make them in primary school.

I like the thin linen top paired with the pants. Feminine and yet menswear.

I actually didn't wear the paper clip necklace. Someone stuck their hands in the photo as a joke :)

Those pants you are wearing are amazing... loving higher waist and pleated front. Lovely.

I love the menswear feel to this outfit! And the pleats in those pants are perfect.
