What I Wore Wednesday

I feel like I haven’t joined in with What I Wore Wednesday for ages (and that’s probably because I haven’t) but anyway, it’s Wednesday, so it’s what I wore….

011

Grey blazer – H&M, white tee (underneath) – Primark, grey skull scarf – Primark, jeans – Next, jewelled ballet flats – Next, watch – Michael Kors, skull friendship bracelet – Links of London 

Blazer, jeans, ballet flats. Such a classic look. But I have to admit that I struggle to find blazers that I actually like on me. If they don’t finish in just the right place I look lumpy, or if they button in the wrong place I feel like I’m going to pop out of them, or if the cut isn’t just right they make me feel even broader in the shoulder than I already am. Fussy? Moi? But I love this blazer from H&M. It was an absolute bargain as you’d expect but it’s in a lovely tuxedo shape and I hope that it suits me.

The jeans are new from Next and they are supposed to be skinnies but they actually fit more like straight legs. I tried on and bought some other skinny jeans at the same time that fit me perfectly so I stupidly just picked up this other pair thinking that they would be of the same fit but I was wrong. It’s bad enough that sizes and styles vary so much from shop to shop but from the same shop? Is it too much to expect? Honestly! I should really have taken them back but I couldn’t be bothered. It just feels strange wearing jeans that aren’t skin tight! Oh well!

My gorgeous new skull bracelet was a birthday present from Mr Mostly and I absolutely love it. He really does have the best taste in jewellery. And women too of course *ahem* Can you believe that this weekend saw the ‘anniversary’ of our engagement? Nineteen whole years since he proposed to me and he’s still waiting for me to make an honest man of him! Ha!

  1. I love your grey blazer. I’m on lookout for something similar myself. I totally agree with you on sizes. I had a Whistles jersey blazer in black which I wear to death. I decided to get a navy one. Ordered it online and it’s loads tighter. (Or I’ve grown a bit but I’m dismissing that idea ) anyway you look über stylish as usual.

    Love the shoes. I live in ballet pumps; but I find that they don’t last very long!

    I love this outfit, you really are an inspiration to me, I have been reading your What I wore posts for over a year now!

    Love the scarf. I keep buying scarves because I like the idea of them, but when I’m wearing them I keep dipping them in the kids dinner, or their paints. Maybe I have to wait until they are less messy before I can wear them

  5. I so need you to take me shopping, you know I don’t own a scarf!!!

    Great accessorising, but I have to say that, the bracelet is an old favourite of mine :)

  7. Oh wow, looking gorgeous as ever and love the blazer on you-those jeans are so flattering and look like skinnies to me too! Happy anniversary too! Loving his taste in jewellery and women of course x
