Outfit 1.10.10: yellow, grey and green

1.10.10: yellow and green and grey

brooch

new shoes

This is what I wore last Friday. After I pretty much wore my casual Friday outfit on Thursday, I thought I’d dress vaguely prefessionally, though obviously only vaguely!

I’m not really that happy with this outfit actually. When I thought it up the night before, I thought it was going to look amazing, but then it didn’t. I still quite like it (quite in the UK sense!) but it’s not nearly as good as it was in my mind. I can’t quite put my finger on what it wrong with it. Probably just that all my clothes are getting a little tight recently! Or maybe my hair. I had straightened it that morning but then got soaked going out in my lunch break, so I put it up in a messy and not great looking way. Or maybe my make up, I don’t know.

shirt – charity shop
vest/tank top – aa

    Ooh, I actually love this! There's something so satisfyingly complimentary about the two pops of bright yellow!

    I like this Franca.
    Specially that gorgeous skirt.
    Maybe you can try layering the other way around (tank top under your blouse) – but I like it as it is 🙂
