I've slightly cheated in my post description title... this isn't really my actual school sweater [I much prefer the word sweater now, but at school it was a jumper]; it's an old 70s Marks and Spencer one I bought from eBay a couple of weeks ago. For all intents and purposes it's the same, but ours didn't have any pattern on them. To be honest I'm amazed I've bought something even vaguely resembling my old school uniform (I always swore I'd never wear bottle green in my life again) - another little thrifted gem added to my retro collection.
And the wide-legged trousers are the actual ones I wore on my wedding day six years ago (so Bianca Jagger of me!). They've been such a great winter staple (see them worn on the blog here, and here), who'd have thought I'd still be wearing years later what I wore to get married?! As they were in the sale at the time, the pay-per-wear on these babies must be a lot lower than the average ppw on most wedding dresses I reckon...!
On Thursday (first day of spring, yay) I'll be posting my round up of my favourite winter outfits - so glad warmer days are finally on their way :))
P.S. A huge thanks to all who commented on my last post - I was really overwhelmed by all the support from everyone. I wasn't fishing for compliments at all (hard to make that sound honest, but I do mean it), it was merely an excuse to get my feelings off my chest about thoughtlessness and showcase some great fellow bloggers to counteract the negativity. It goes to prove once again what a great little community we have going on :)))))
