Dressed in raindrops, owls and stripes
Blazer: Dorothy Perkins (old, dyed), Scarf: ASOS, Striped top: Primark, Raindrops tee: Diesel, Jeans: Miss Sixty, Hat: F+F, Boots: Dune, Earrings: F+F, Watch: Red Herring: Black ring: Unknown
A few things I either haven't worn before or for a long time: the neck scarf, Diesel t-shirt, and owl earrings.
I bought the dinky scarf from ASOS the other week (super cheap) but I just couldn't work out how it stayed in place - it isn't knotted - I was looking for a hidden clip or fastener. It's actually has a 'pull through closure' which took me an age to work out (or rather, I had to re-read the item blurb online in desperation). So glad I realised this before I sent it back as unsuitable...! The last time I wore the Diesel t-shirt was on holiday in San Francisco (see the post here): I dislike ironing intensely, but this top really has to be ironed. So that's how long it took me to iron it (sooo bad). And I've not worn the owl earrings before (I bought them probably last Spring) as somehow I just couldn't get them to work with an outfit, even though I really love them.
So I'm glad a few rediscovered/new items have spruced up this outfit - I do love the colours and all the pattern which did feel so warm and snuggly in this weather...?
Hope everyone had a great weekend :)
P.S. Please don't forget if you have a minute to vote for me on Refinery29's Next Big Style Blogger contest online (see yesterday's post for all the details) - thank you so much, I'd really appreciate it!
