I wore this outfit both to work and to an evening girlie stitch and knit yesterday. It's one of my favourite Autumn outfits and I love it's simplicity. I never used to be big on black but I've recently grown to love charcoal....... and American Vintage are really good at it. I got the tunic after seeing my friend Bargainista Fashionista sporting a similar one she'd found in the sales a couple of years ago. It's perfect with a pair of leggings and looks great layered up with a cardi, jacket, cape or snood.
These tunics and leggings are perfect for cycling too, they're more relaxed and comfy than proper 'office wear' but also smart enough for the work I do. Plus I think they look great when I'm riding Mildred, my Pashley, I'll blog about this some more soon.
The bangle and ring are ones I made in my silversmithing classes and I'm in the porcess of making some more for the shop.....watch this space! I'm so chuffed with the ring, I've always wanted one so I thought it would be the perfect piece to make.....I couldn't stop looking at it when it was completed! It's called a spinner ring but they're often referred to as worry rings as people spin the outer rings when pondering on a dilema or two. They are so tactile, I love them, oh and they make a great noise too.
Apologies for the quality of the photos, I'd had such a busy day running around between meetings that I didn't get a change to take any half decent photos (although to be honest, between you and me, they're all geurilla photos, snapped in changing rooms, staff loos or anywhere with a full length mirror!.......as if you didn't already know!). I had to ask my friend to hold up a mirror, which she dutifully did, hiding behind it! My friends are the best!
Anywho, I hope you are enjoying these new posts. I'd love to know what you think.
Happy Wednesday my lovelies. xx
