Grown up 1

(…and new shoes!)

Something about this outfit is making me feel really grown up. I feel like it’s the sort of thing I’d wear to go to my kids’ Parents’ Evening after work or something. If I had kids. Which I don’t. So, I’m just wearing it to work and trying to use longer words than usual instead.

After all, I am indubitably a big fan of circumlocution.

Top: Oasis

Dark navy treggings: Marks & Spencer

New booties: Zara (Today is their first outing, they are surprisingly comfy thus far!)

The pattern is making me feel really spring-y! (Even though I only just noticed the bugs right this moment, looking at this photo. I thought it only had flowers on it until now!)

I actually just looked on the Oasis website and they have loads of really pretty tops that would be useful for work/post-work drinking in the sun (please let this happen soon! I am so ready!)

In keeping with my grown up vibe, I kept my jewellery simple (and matching! This never happens, I’ll try not to break my arm patting myself on the back) and wore this necklace and earring set that my Mum gave me. I think they were a freebie in a supermarket in Athens (a “spend this much on feta and pick a gift” sort of jobbie) and she gave them to me because she’s the best 🙂 (and also only really wears gold and doesn’t have pierced ears!).

In other news, I am getting up at the crack o’ dawn tomorrow for a 5 day holiday in Istanbul! I am super excited and already looking forward to blogging about it when I get back! 😀

Have a great week!

Love,

The Styletterie

Today I’m wearing:

Purple and lace top – Warehouse

Blue skirt – Vintage (my Mum’s from the 70s)

Leopard print jacket – M&S

Boots – River Island

I always find it harder to wear colour in winter, all my bright clothes seem really summery so this is an attempt to look professional (I am wearing it to work), colourful (to combat my misery as the weather turns from autumn to winter), warm (see previous point), fun (I am going out later with a friend) and comfy (we are going to eat lots of pizza).

Jewellery:

 D Nameday 2013, B2 201

Silver and gold heart earrings- my sister’s from the 80s (I hesitate to say “vintage” lest she reads this and kills me)
