Cardigan - Topshop
Skirt - J.W. Anderson for Topshop
Boots - Bianco
Usually I mix and match my clothes quite a lot, rarely repeating an exact combination, but this outfit is the exception to that rule. There's just something about it that I think really works. It screams sixties to me - the round neck, monochrome mini, ankle boots. I like the contrasting shades and the way the zebra print with the bright pink knit should be tacky yet somehow isn't. It's a pretty garish look, I'll give you that, but it just makes me happy to wear, and that's exactly what clothes should do.
You may have noticed that this week's posts have included a heavy dose of curls. I'm not sure quite how I feel about this curly bob I'm sporting but I am absolutely desperate for my hair to grow to Rapunzel style lengths. I think that I've finally accepted that this is never going to happen whilst I'm using heating so I'm saving it for special occasions from now on. Hopefully I'll learn to love the curls soon.
Just a short post today because, as usual, I have too many things to do before I fly home for tomorrow. I've spent most of the week watching Christmas films whilst writing an essay about Sylvia Plath, so that's been an interesting combination of mental states. The next time you hear from me, I'll be on solid English soil, hooray!
