Blouse: New Look
Jeggings: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: New Look


I bought this sheer floral blouse a few months ago to wear to a fancy dress party, but ended up not using it. I really liked it so I didn't return it, but I was never sure what to wear it with. Last week I got these black denim jeggings from Dorothy Perkins and I knew immediately they would look great with the blouse. They are sooo comfy and look like actual jeans, I can see myself getting lots of wear out of these jeggings!

Normally I stay away from tops which aren't fitted because I'm worried it'll make me look reeeally top-heavy, so this outfit is a little bit out of my usual comfort-zone. It's so weird not wearing a waist belt! I love this shirt though, the bow on the shoulder is a really cute detail.

I've been really busy lately so haven't had much time for blogging, oops! I've started volunteering with the National Trust which I'm loving, and I've got myself a job for next month during the Edinburgh festival. I've also started work on my dissertation for next year, and am trying to teach myself how to drive just now. Phew!

  1. The jeggings look great - I thought they were super skinny jeans at first and wanted to know where they were from :)

    Thanks for all the tips on Edinburgh, will be writing them down in my diary!!!
