OOTD - Feeling a bit Fifties

Wednesday, 17 July 2013

Shirt: Dorothy Perkins via Charity Shop//
Skirt:River Island via Charity Shop//Belt:New Look//
Shoes & Sunglasses: Primark// Bow: Gifted (blog swap)
It's been rather a while since I've done an outfit post, and I've never actually taken any photo's outside, so I was really unsure overall how this one would turn out. I had hope to get these pictures during the sunshine, but by the time I'd got home from work and got sorted, most of the sunshine had gone off my garden.
I don't think I've tried black and white pictures before either, but as the outfit was black and white, I didn't think it took anything away from them. I always feel if I'm wearing something colourful I should show the colours of the outfit.
I've worn this outfit to work a few times during the hot weather. I do find dressing for work in this heat quite difficult, as there are certain policies about what is and isn't acceptable, and I've always still got to look professional, Although this skirt is perhaps a little shorter than I would like for work, as it's floaty, rather than tight it seems to work quite well. I love the tie bow front and ruffles on the shirt, and all together it feels a little fifties vintage almost, to me. I feel really comfortable and girly in this outfit - aided by the addition of the little bow on top, and some big sunglasses!


  1. I love your skirt, it looks gorgeous! And that bow in your hair is adorable. You're living up to your blog name! ;) x

  3. I love your bow, so cute. I'm finding it so annoying to keep cool and still wear work appropriate clothes..


  4. The skirt is so pretty! I love the outfit! :D
