Feeling a bit 70s?

I had a bit of a 70s vibe going on today! I’ve had this lacey cream top in my wardrobe for a while but I’ve never worn it – it needed a bit of moderation, so I cut a new neckline and pinned the sleeves up! I had hoped that it would be long enough to wear as a dress, but unfortunately it’s just too short, so leggings it is.

The necklace was a DIY. I found a leaf brooch in a charity shop (aah I love charity shops!) and bought a long chain to go with it. After removing the badge bit from the back, I hammered a small hole in the top of the leaf and put a little ring through which I then attached to the chain. I’m quite pleased with the result – all for a mere £1!

Lace top - Mackays
Tweed Jacket - St Michael
Necklace - Me!
Leggings - H&M
Satchel - Topshop

I can’t wait for the long weekend! (May Day bank holiday = day off on Monday!). Although I’ll mainly be sat indoors revising for my french speaking test. Eeek.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for your comment.
Was shopping in Topshop the other day and they have a cream lace dress similar to the top your wearing and the sleevs although short are pretty nice too.
You should check it out, it's time to get rid of those leggings for spring!
Love the outfit though and your hair! xx

I love this whole outfit, as well as the nautical one!
There's a necklace similar to this in Warehouse or Topshop or something like that at the moment, with a leather cord rather than a chain. I think yours is even better:)

I've linked you in my blog list! x
