Dotty science geek (chic)

This was an outfit from a couple of weekends ago I never got round to posting – perfect timing to do this while it’s still essentially Christmas! Hope you’re all having a happy holiday!

I surprised Mr. Summers with an evening out at a show and this is what I wore: probably the geekiest show I’ve ever been to (and will ever see). Professor Brian Cox was appearing in a touring science show… now if I say this man is a particle physicist and very attractive to boot you may not believe me. But believe me, he is (very attractive, I mean). Not only that, the evening was incredibly entertaining as well as informative, though some of it made my head hurt(!)

Anyway I decided to go reasonably smart but with a twist – I LOVE my monochrome Topshop blouse paired with the yellow polkadots. I also wore my geek glasses without a thought about it being a show about science, and then when I got there I felt as if I’d worn them to look intelligent.

I didn’t, honest…!

    I love your trousers. I've been on the hunt for wide buckle, high waist trousers for a while now and I'm yet to find some that I love! Great outfit:)

    Smashing! right down to the "geek" glasses!
    I do so enjoy your blog! I actually did the sweater over the untucked shirt today. Not sure if it's really me. But it worked!
