A Day in the Library


Coat: H&M. Trousers: H&M. Shirt: Charity Shop. Jumper: Stolen from Boyfriend. Shoes: Charity Shop. Vanity Case: Gift.   

An oh so comfy outfit for an oh so tedious Saturday afternoon spent in the library. These tweed-esque trousers are a great substitute for jeans and are both smart and casual. A classic pattern like this can never go wrong and remains a firm favourite of mine along with paisley. 

My boyfriend commented that my vanity case looks like an old camera bag, which I suppose it kinda does...it makes a nice change from my usual bland granny bags anyway. 

My inspiration for this outfit is pictured below: 



Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn replicates an iconic 1950s look.

  15. I know the one you mean, King Street and George Street are the best for charity shops because they are run by old biddies who price everything cheap as chips :D haha I am the same, I often struggle to put items out in the vintage as I would happily keep them all!

    Thanks, trousers are H&M, think they still have similar ones in store x x
