Necklace - Charity shop
Cardigan - Jumble sale
Silk shirt - Traid shop sale
Skirt - Gap about 4 years ago (gift)
Tights - H&M
Boots - Jumble sale about 7 years ago

This has pretty much been my uniform these past few weeks, shirt + mini skirt + cardigan + tights + boots. I like it as it makes getting dressed so easy. I have quite a weakness for printed cotton shirts and plain silk ones, so I am trying to actually wear them all. I went to a couple of jumble sales in October and stocked up on Jaeger shirts and wool jumpers to see me through this potentially very cold winter. I also found a stash of books including Joan Didion's 'Slouching towards Bethlehem' which has a note from the previous owner from 24th November 1979 about a youth hostel in Germany. I love things like that, makes reading this particular copy even better. Also reading a book that was written about the 60's in the 60's is so interesting, given that we now have some historical context on what became of the counter-cultural movement. I also went to see 'Everything is moving' at the Barbican, which was great and very interesting with quite a diverse selection of photographers represented. This outfit however was worn yesterday for a leisurely pub lunch and the fireworks at Battersea Park. A great way to spend a Saturday. Also this necklace - does anyone know what it might be made of? It's very light and I don't think it's stone. A friend suggested it's made of Antler, but have just no idea.

  3. that is what is so beautiful about print! you don't find notes from previous authors on a kindle. i haven't read that book, but i should. i've loved everything else i've read by joan didion.

  4. I can't believe you found that necklace in a charity shop, what an amazing find! I love days spent looking for jumble sale treasures...
