velvet

DENIM JACKET - VINTAGE/BLOUSE - CHARITY SHOP/SKIRT - H&M/BELT - PRIMARK/CREEPERS - OFFICE/WATCH - CASIO (VIA AMAZON)
Another outfit featuring a couple of 'thrifted' items! I absolutely adore this blouse - it's easily one of my favourite charity shop purchases to date, and I have so many ideas of how to wear it I'm going to have to refrain from featuring it on here every week! Velvet is one of my favourite fabrics for A/W. It looks luxurious, feels luxurious, and makes an outfit look that little bit more exciting. It's also nice to mix different textures - this blouse would look great under a knitted jumper with the denim jacket layered on top.

I wore this outfit yesterday for an extremely hectic, shattering but incredibly fun day with fellow blogger Kavita (check out her blog here; love her) working on something exciting (although you can hardly call it working - we walked around, chatted and giggled all day); I'll fill you in on more details soon, I just don't want to say too much yet in case I'm not allowed! So watch this space for more of me and Kavita!

That's all for now - more soon!

I love the fact that you can take pieces from a charity shop and make it your own when you style it up.
