Patterned blouse, pinafore dress & shiny shoes.

Back to School!
Dress: Zara Blouse: UO Coat: Greenwich Market, years ago! Bag: Cath Kidston Gloves: Christmas Present Shoes: Christmas Present/Russell and Bromley
I'm not really sure what my face/arms are doing in these pictures, and I really don't like these pictures at all! Oh well. I've only ever worn this dress once before, and it was for a job interview, so I'm always a bit worried that when I wear it I look like i'm ready for work, or school with the blouse under it! I really like that sort of school-y look, with tweed, knit jumpers, collared shirts, and plainer colours. I love how Cait of Wayward daughter dresses, especially during the colder months, with her lovely coats, tartan scarfs and berets. I don't know if it's noticeable, but my gloves are on a string! A couple of years ago, I bought some stringed gloves from Cath Kidston, they were amazing, I don't think I took them off ever, apart from when I lost them, and then never found them. I've since been on the look out for some similar ones and managed to find two pairs that I liked, the Cath Kidston ones in my last post, and these Jack Wills ones!
It's my appraisal week at Uni, which means i've only got tutor meetings this week, which also means i'm going to be spending a lot of time cooped up in my room working, which is not something I enjoy! At least my modules for this term sound interesting, one is called the Victorian Occult, so i'm going to enjoy reading up about seances, magicians and the supernatural. Hope your new term back at University/college/six form/school is going well!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
