Casual Sunday

Jumper: Vintage, Skirt: Vintage, Boots: Ebay

Here's a couple happy (yes, this is my happy face ha ha ha) snaps we took on an overcast Sunday. Sunday is always such a bittersweet day; you're never expected to get out of your pyjamas but you know work is starting again the next day. I really wanted to show off my new earrings. This is just one pair of the magpies haul I've been collecting for the last couple weeks! I am so in love (obsessed even) with the glam, paste jewellery trend. It adds some fun to a casual outfit and it's always great to play dress up. Expect to see many more Elizabeth Taylor inspired jewellery in the coming weeks!
I always get lots of compliments on the striped jumper. It is great material that hangs perfectly (depsite being an overszied shirt not a jumper ha ha ha) and the colours are very flattering, especially since you can't go wrong with a breton stripe.
Now for the skirt, yes, it's love. I picked this up in the UK and it's true and perfect vintage, and once again is a style that's come around again. Scalloping is back and this suede skirt is one of my favourite colours and it's very flattering (hello waist!) My only worry in the world while wearing this skirt is should one side somehow get caught, the snap buttons down the front would give way and leave me very embarrassed. But it's something I'm willing to risk!
And yes, those boots again. They're just too good not to wear!

Matching Prints

Blazer and Skirt:Vintage, Shirt:Princess Polly, Boots:Ebay

I've been dying to do a post with this matching suit before I even had a blog! It's so fantastic, the print is subtle but together it's got some serious flair (I think!) However, it was originally a maxi skirt, can you imagine that with the blazer (yikes)? I could see a future where it looked amazing though. I decided to have a go at altering a pleated skirt myself and it turned out to be pretty simple with hand sewing. I love that the blazer is almost the same length as the skirt, I think that's such a chic look! Anyone can wear matching prints! It's so simple to pull off and age is no barrier! The collared shirt is one of my wardrobe staples from Princess Polly. Clean, simple and the collar detail adds some Texan flavour!
Also, some of you may have noticed I finally cut my hair (emphasis on the finally)! It was sad to see the ombre go but it was necessary. I also got a Keritan treatment and woah! My hair feels like silk, it was exactly what it needed after being neglected for 2 years. I can definately recommend it!
