Birds Of A Feather

I can't believe that this is the first time I've finally managed to get some pictures of my wearing this, because I've worn it a lot since grabbing it in the sales in January.

Tunic, ASOS
Leggings, Primark
Vest top (under tunic), H&M

Leggings and my favourite riding style boots for the wet, leggings and flats for a more casual uni look, and it works really well with my leather trousers for something a touch smarter. Despite the oversize collar which I was concerned was just a bit much, it's been a solid addition to my wardrobe.

I can't remember exactly how much it was supposed to be and how much it cost, but I know the numbers are (respectively) between £20 and £25 and £9-£12. I really wasn't sure about it, but I was persuaded by my mother to keep it, and boy an I glad I did.

It's been a perfect easy throw on, particularly with boots for wetter weather and just at the moment, with my new favourite shoes.

Although it has a batwing style sleeve, I can still wear it with a cardigan so long as I wear a plenty long enough vest top underneath, and today I wore it with my leather jacket over the top, see. Simple. Easy. Still presentable.

And now, back to the books. I'm in uni solely for revision sessions and final seminars now, and my exams start just after the Jubilee Bank Holiday. Oh the joy. I'm really rather looking forward to 1210 on Friday June 22nd. There had better be a LARGE vodka tonic awaiting me.

Leggings and boots are like my uniform for rain! P.S. love the Russian Nesting dolls :)

I can't always work with them, just depends on the shape of the rest of the top....

Yup, mine too, leggings dry quicker than trousers! And thanks, I have mild obsession with Matryushkas.
