This is the first of my series of ‘old’ outfit posts that I’m going to be posting for the next week, since lately I’ve barely been at my computer. These pictures are from two weeks ago – please excuse the cheesiness of the title but I just couldn’t resist! I bought this top in May and this was the first time I wore it, and simultaneously fell in love with it. It’s strange, I wasn’t that keen on it when I first saw it in the shop I work at, but decided to go for it six months later when spotting it in a sample sale. I don’t regret doing so, all I needed was one wear for it to grow on me!

I love the shooting star print. It’s simple and modest yet effortlessly beautiful – the effect is naturally a lot more delicate than my more-of-a-statement star pants. The top and trousers were featured together in NW3’s autumn/winter ’12 lookbook, but I doubt it’s a look I’ll ever want to try. One shooting star print at a time is enough!
It comes as no surprise that I also adore the neckline – I can’t wait to wear it underneath a jumper.
I need to bang on about this skirt – it’s proving to be my autumn/winter ’13 life saver. I’m the kind of girl who needs a go-with-everything skirt that isn’t just a plain jersey body-con one. Last year, that skirt was my Oasis pleated piece – unfortunately it’s a little big on me now, but this one is an excellent substitute.
Check out all the quilting action – another case of the matchy-matchies which on this occasion wasn’t actually intentional!
I’d like to think that these earrings are the perfect compliment to the outfit, not so much because of the monochrome detail but more so because of the pearls, femininity and overall big-yet-refined effect.
It wasn’t actually as late as it look in these pics, but I gotta say I’m pretty pleased with my camera’s performance in this kind of light. Hopefully, this will make outfit posts during winter a little easier!
