To make the most of my time in Oxford while it’s left (sniff), I did some outfit pictures in the Bodleian library! Well, it’s where I spend most of my time these days, anyway… And it’s a beautiful piece of architecture, so even if you don’t want to look at me, there’s something of interest!
A real Primark-fest for you today – completely by accident, everything I’m wearing is from that glorious land of cheap cheap bargains. You know how sometimes in Primark you pick up something that looks lovely, but when you get it home you have no idea what to wear it with? Well, both this top and this skirt were pieces like that – and what do you know, I think they look pretty good together!
While pale pink’s not normally my colour, I really love this blush skirt, because it’s full and floaty and knee-length, which is great for keeping your dignity intact on a no-tights day. I love the burnout pattern, but the whole skirt is exceedingly see-through, even despite the inner layer. That’s nothing that can’t be solved with a bit of nude underwear… Also, a warning – this style of skirt seems to run very very small in Primark. I had to size up two sizes to get it comfortable on my waist (and nothing else in my wardrobe seems tight, so it’s not the revision snacks!). Because of the fullness of the skirt, it needs something tucked in at the top, and we all know that calls for Ubiquitous Belt, of course!
The top I bought on a total whim, because I loved the colours, but this style of silky, loose fitting tank top just doesn’t work for my shape – I need to define my waist, or I look a bit whale-like. Tucked in, though, I really like it, and think it’s a great smarter alternative to a basic vest. Purple shoes tie into the colours of the top, et voila. A good way to wear black in the spring!
