Monday morning blues-jeans and jacket!!

It was very windy and dull this morning-hey, whats new for the beginning of August-which is why I look a bit fed up and windswept-haha!!

Due to the ever changing weather we are having, todays outfit is the blazer I bought recently-it is navy with white hearts all over it and navy heart buttons, It is by Jaeger and was £2 at the boot sale. The long line grey vest top is by Gap, about £3, from the charity shop.


The jeans are low slouch widelegged jeans by Levi's and were £5 from the charity shop. Because the weather is so up and down, I'm fed up of floral dresses and starting to think more of Autumn. I went thrifting earlier, hoping to bag something in red tartan, but nothing doing. I didn't come back empty handed as I got a black shoulder bag by Carven, a slip, a short suit (romper!) for Eastbourne next week and a silk top by Gap.
