This blouse was about £3.00 in a charity shop in Hunstanton. Thanks to its largely OAP dominated population, the charity shops are busting at the seams with amazing finds. I really love the bright sea foam green against the dark navy and think it will be a great piece to transition from Summer into Winter.
I have paired it with a slanted, pointy necklace I bought from New Look a while ago. Usually I pop a necklace under a collar but here the collar is slightly lower than what the necklace would allow so instead, its on top. I quite like the tacky/chic element the gold gives against the stripes. Worn with simple but quirky pieces I think this is perfect.
I added leather look leggings from TopShop which I think give a tough edge to the look and contrasts nicely against the blouse.
I looooooove these leggings, they are so comfy and go with so many things in my wardrobe. Definitely something I am going to repurchase when these get on their last legs. The only thing that I think let them down is I find they come up slightly short, however this is my own fault - I didn't spy them in the 'Tall' section so if you are tall like me it might be worth looking in that section first.
I really like the caged straps and think these are a nice alternative to the simpler flatforms around.
On my tootsies I am wearing a clashing neon pink by Models Own (coming up rather orangey/coral in the snap). It is a true highlighter pink and looks fabulous against all skin tones.
For accessories I chose my gold thick strap Casio watch that I am so so so so in love with. I also have the same in silver and was lucky enough to find an orange one in a charity shop in my home town for the absolute steal of £2.00. That was my life made!!!!
My clutch bag is (again) from another charity shop from sunny Hunny for like £1.00 (?!) but is originally from Clarkes. Never did I think in my older years would own anything from dreaded Clarkes. After being subjected to their shoes from a young age and dying for my mum to allow me to wear something from a 'cooler' shop, I think I vouched never to own anything from there again. And here I am with the cutest navy clutch.
The piping is a deep bottle green colour with a two tone green and navy bow. I thought it went quite well with the blouse and added a pretty touch against the leather look leggings and caged shoes, Its quite small but has plenty of room for the essentials plus a strap that is on poppers so you can wear it across the body if you want to.
