Max C - Outfit #3!


I've had a very busy week - buying the last few things for uni, getting and then recovering from tonsillitis, planning a dinner party and turning 19!! I feel so old... boo.

I didn't really want to blog when I was ill earlier in the week, but I felt well enough today to pop outside and take some photos, just before a huge storm hit my town! So this is outfit #3, incorporating a beautiful victoriana-style spotted chiffon blouse from Max C.

The blouse is a delicate little number, with dainty polkadots, ruffle details and a high collar (although I've chosen not to button it all the way up in this outfit). I've paired it with my paperbag waist shorts from H&M, which I think complement it well, although this shirt would work equally well in the office! (They do it in black and white too!).

Also - do you remember these shoes ^? Well, until a few days ago, they had brown laces... and then one of the laces snapped. So instead of replacing them with more brown laces, I decided to add some cream trainer-style laces, à la these Chloé boots that I have coveted for too long. What do you think of the effect? Yay or nay?

P.S. I'll be announcing a Max C giveaway within the next week!

That blouse is wonderful. And I really like the contrasting laces on the shoes. Don't worry, 19 isn't too bad. It's once you hit 20 and are no longer a teen that things start to get scary. Haha. I jest.... kind of.

Happy belated birthday! And hope you get shot of the last bit of tonsil trouble pronto :)

Love the cream laces on those shoes. I've gone shoe mad just recently. I keep on finding all these irresistable pairs and my brain goes pop! and disappears into the soles of my feet.. *roll eyes* Here I am, I can't find a winter coat I like although I am freezing already but I REQUIRE more shoes when I have more than enough. Go figure. :D
