Annie Hall in a skirt
This is a landmark post for me, simply because I can't remember any outfit post ever without at least one ASOS item... I think I have an addiction. And I hope you get the Annie Hall comparison - it's the usual "post title that came to me when looking at the photos" scenario. And I did something that very, very rarely happens to me: I pulled a not-bought-recently item out of my wardrobe I'd not worn before. I know a lot of women have unworn clothes in their wardrobes, but I never do it. I'll buy something and then be wearing it the very next day - I don't just hang it in my wardrobe. To me that's like buying chocolate and not eating it straight away (who has that sort of willpower)??!
So I bought this blouse last year and didn't have a specific occasion for it, so it just went unworn, mostly because I found the billowyness hard to style. And then I Pinned this... and the idea of putting a waistcoat over the top seemed perfect - though it's got a touch of the pirate about it too ;)
Maybe I should have called the post Pirate Annie Hall. Too cryptic...?
P.S. Just realised the thumb ring is ASOS. My bad.
