White collar worker

Pinafore!
vintage M&S (St Michael label) dress from the 60's
white collared shirt - Comptoir des Cotonneirs
drapey cardi - Jigsaw
boots - Camper
(merino wool leggings under ribbed brown tights)
Brrr. Am wearing Icebreaker* merino wool leggings under my tights.

*Linking because I love


I felt smart in this, but it's a bit like school uniform - pinafore dress, shirt & cardigan etc. Thankfully no Double Maths though.

Hope you are all keeping warm? (or are lucky & enjoying warm weather somewhere)

  1. I love the layers! I would feel smart in it too! I do the layering to stay warm too, it helps too if the office gets a little warm I can remove something if need be!

    1. It is all about layers - I'm even going to leave an Emergency cardigan at work, just in case of further freezing-ness!

  2. I love this because the cardi keeps it from being *too* schoolgirl; it's still grown and interesting.

    1. Thank you Gracey, I was really trying to avoid too much cuteness.

  3. I love that color blue! (As you'll find out on my birthday post ;) ) You look very sharp!

    I'm already huddled back inside, away from the cold and rain. Though like you I layered up the wool today.

    Ugh - double maths. One thing I'm grateful of - no more math!!

  4. I've always been partial to the tight-laced schoolgirl look with the top buttons buttoned. I love this style.

  5. I like the schoolgirl vibe! A little Puritan chic going on too! And it's a dress, and you know how I like dresses! Really great outfit. And NO Maths! xxxxx
