|Jacket - Hong Kong / Top - M&S / Skirt - New Look / Boots - Topshop (all old)|
So we're back to that time of year where outdoor shoots require pretending to not look freezing without a coat on. I know this look would've been better without tights but there's a chance my legs might've been blue by the end of the shoot which wouldn't have made for good pictures.
Anyway, here's a slightly grungy look that I wore to a birthday lunch. The prevalence of the 90s trends have really gotten to me - my online shopping carts are full of slip dresses right now. I like a subtle mix of prints so I thought my floral skirt and striped jacket would pair up nicely. I also really like that they're both long pieces, though being 5'2" there's always a risk of getting proportions wrong and having my frame just completely swamped. I once tried on a huge fluffy coat which I loved, but it kinda looked like I was being enveloped by some sort of monster. The highlight of this outfit has to go to the mirror details on my heels. Gotta love a small touch of gold.
