Marbled



Vintage shirt from etsy, shoes from etsy, jumper from French Toast, Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in 04

Sorry for the photo quality in this post. It was cloudy this morning and the lighting wasn't great, but I couldn't wait any longer to show off this outfit! This blouse has quickly become one of my favorite items of clothing. The print is everything I could have dreamed of, and the collar is perfectly '70s. There's a very similar one here if you want to be my twin.

After seeing this post on For Show, I immediately placed an order for this jumper and a peter pan collared blouse. I got them in a size 14 (as in children's size 14) and they fit perfectly. The sizing goes up to 20, so even smallish adult-sized people can enjoy wearing children's school uniforms! I would have thrown the biggest tantrum of my life if I had been made to wear uniforms as a little girl, and now I'm willingly buying and wearing them in everyday life. Funny how that works.

My last day of classes was yesterday and the weather is starting to get warmer! All I can think about are ice cream cones, laying in the grass, walking barefoot, giving sweaty hugs, and wearing inappropriately short shorts. I've never been more ready for summer.

  10. I absolutely loved this outfit~ And wow, I would have never known that that was a school uniform jumper! I personally liked how the marbled blouse balanced out the solid black tones.
