fashion charity shops

what i wore – polka dot blouse & grey pencil skirt

if there’s two things i could say i wear the most, it’d be polka dots and pencil skirts. that sounds like some twee album name doesn’t it? i love polka dot (and any) blouses, but i have a difficult time finding ones that fit over my chest without being horrendously large around the waist. this one actually is, but because of the cut it creates an interesting shape, even so i still prefer to wear it with a belt. don’t i prefer everything with a belt, though?

i’ve had the pencil skirt for years but for whatever reason i’ve not worn it for quite some time. not sure why, as i love it, it’s very good quality (it was originally from jaeger) and because it’s slightly loose fit it’s very comfortable to wear.

top, belt and skirt – all charity shop

    I have the same problem with blouses generally. And I do love a belt. :)

      it’s annoying! i love blouses, but thanks to an ample bosom, they don’t quite love me.

    Wow, that looks like an awful lot of good something for, I guess, near to nothing!

    Love this – I am a big fan of a pencil skirt and chunky belt. You look amazing!

      thank you! gotta love pencil skirts. especially love this one as it’s still fitted, but has a nice looseness to it too.

    yay for outfit posts! you look lovely, and you can never go past a good pencil skirt, especially with red/orange-red lipstick! :) x

      pencil skirts and red lipstick just belong together, don’t they?
