Flowers + Leather



I swear if I find floral print skinnies I'm wearing them with this top half!



Blazer & kitten heels: Zara. (These heels get the look). Shirt: Thrift shop (found a similar one here). Embossed clutch: ASOS. Faux leather trousers: H&M (other pants here or here). Shades: Rayban Wayfarer

Getting more into mixing prints. (Like this dress post).  The shirt was found about 2 months ago. The dull faded print and transparency sold it for less than $8.  I've noticed loads of good shirts are at thrift and vintage spots.  Definitely have a look. This one posted before here is still a favourite.

Leather skinnies I love are never in my budget so I go with fauxs which are made good enough now anyway (these were a steal price wise). As for the jacket. You already know I was stalking it after this post.  I haven't found a good one in all the thrift shop visits I make so I knew I'd get this one.

As for the kitten heels. They're baaaaack.  

ps. You can follow my daily updates on products I'm picking for future blog posts here.  The blogger only site is still private invite, open for up to 200 readers max before it's officially launched.  Password: Where_Did_U_Get_ThatObsessed
