Purple Skinny Jeans, Grey Beaded Knit, Mulberry Alexa | Vintage Printed Pencil Skirt, Wittner Heels, Chloe Marcie Bag

Here's what I wore on Sunday to go to lunch with DH and work at Church Online in the evening:

JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic pearly grey double tour bracelet
BagMulberry regular size Alexa bag in foggy grey from Reebonz sale

I purchased this jumper a while back, with the Warehouse gift voucher I won. I knew it would soon be cool enough to wear it, so glad I got a chance to this weekend. Still wearing thongs though, because after a week of heels my feet needed a break!

Last worn: purple skinny jeans, shoes, Mulberry Alexa. First time I've worn the top as it has only just gotten cool enough to wear it!

Here's what I wore to work today:

Necklace: sterling silver monogram necklace C/O
Top: Supre purple half-length sleeve top
Skirt: Vintage pencil skirt from The Thrifty Kitten
ShoesWittner 'Lumen' heel in patent leather
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted faux pearl and silver chain bracelet
BagChloe Marcie medium hobo bag in Nut

Got this skirt back from the tailor this weekend. I only wore it twice last year as the length was a little odd on me. I got it taken up so I'm more comfortable in it and will wear it more often. It's got such a lovely colourful print on it, tried to bring out the purple a little with this top. In hindsight, probably should have picked a more contrasting background to stand against for the photo though, haha!

Last worn: skirt, heels, Chloe Marcie bag. First time I've worn the top on the blog although I've had it years now. Good basic piece.

  18. I'm so in love with that pencil skirt! the length is just perfect and looks amazing on you! love the print too :)

  19. I love that last outfit soooo much Mica! Purple is one of my fave colors to wear, next to mustard and cobalt, so I would wear this outfit myself too. I have a skirt that should be taken in, as I'd like it to fall in my waist, and not low on my hips like it does now. Not sure how much it would cost though, but I'm thinking it won't be cheap! :( x

  20. I love the texture of that first sweater. It looks so cool!

  21. My oh my you have a wonderful purse collection! And I'm totally coveting that gray jumper right now.
