There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired

(Great Gatsby sweater: Out of Print Clothing, Wool Skirt: Topshop Boutique, Shoes: DIY, Trench: DIY, Leather handbag: Zara, Fur Tail: Etsy, Ring: Ottoman Hands) #teenvogue

This isn't that Zara skirt... however, I see why the Zara one has shorts underneath, so many near crotch shots, I will have to pre-warn anyone in my company when I wear this skirt to keep their eyes out for a casual slip. This skirt is from Topshop, and I saw it floundering in the sale, it was actually cheaper than that Zara one and it is 100% wool. I was pretty darn happy with this bargain. It is held together with poppers though which leaves me with mixed feelings.

My lovely sister bought me this sweatshirt for my birthday and I love it. It is from Out of Print Clothing who make tees and sweats out of book covers, very original and perfect for fake book worms like me. I was stuck between this one and the Charlotte's web tee. The print quality on the items are great as are the core top. I highly recommend this website. Although, I do not recommend wearing a fleece sweat and a wool skirt so much blue on my skirt now...


With love from,

  7. Oh my gosh that jumper is amazing! I'm definitely going to check out the website. Love that skirt and i know what you mean about things attached by poppers- makes you feel a bit concious that it could get ripped open (but it never will! - unless you have cheeky friends!). Love this outfit so much!

    1. Haha, that is exactly why I am worried about popper skirts. I do have cheeky friends, although I pop all my male friends shirts that have popper closures, so maybe I am asking for it.
