Thought I would add a little something to the usual "WAYW" threads smile

I woke up this morning feeling the need for bohemian chic in which to enjoy this beautifully warm autumnal sunshine.

Teal silk flared midi skirt (Zara via charity shop)
Teal long sleeve tee (White Stuff) layered beneath:
Pale grey slouchy short sleeve tee with sequin heart detail (from small local boutique - no label other than "made in Italy")
ASOS Aggie Boots with ankle socks and bare legs.

Same as I wear every Thursday

Wideleg jeans - Wallis
Red and navy striped top - Boden
Red fair isle Smartwool socks
Blue down gilet - Alpkit

because is it Slimming World day and I get weighed every Thursday, so I alwasys wear the same clothes. It's what I happened to be wearing when I first went. Am hoping the jeans will be too big soon enough.

I am trying something new with my hair today so wanted to wear clothes that work. Hair is more wavy and a-line shaped with a blunt fringe. Looks a bit more rocky than groomed. Cant decide if I am in mutton territory or not.

TS dark olive jegging things
H&M khaki cotton sweater
Long teal vest underneath

Long and semi-fitted chunky black and grey striped jumper - Wallis;
Very fitted charcoal vest top underneath - Primark;
Black leather a-line skirt that hits just below mid-thigh - ebay;
Black patent 14 eyelet Docs with chunky 3" heels;
Black opaque tights;
Stainless steel watch and beautifully delicate hand-made bracelet in oxidised silver which my brother bought me.

Because I'm going to a seminar later and it's really horrible outside but will be very warm in the (antiquated) building. I like this outfit a lot - it's the first time I've worn a big jumper with a miniskirt and it's a much more flattering combination than I expected (I'm slim, but short and very hourglassy so can look dumpy in skirts if the top isn't very clingy). I just wish my Tahitian pearls weren't still away being restrung, they have lovely muted green and pink highlights so I really miss them on days when I'm mostly wearing black/grey...
