Coat: Asos//Blouse: charity shop//leather skirt: H&M//brogues: Topshop//cameo: boot sale

These photos were taken outside the Royal Academy when we went to the Impressionists exhibition currently on there (I'm a bit of a tradionalist- give me Monet, Pissarro and Renoir over Hirst and Emin any day..). My mother has been a bit of a reluctant photographer (if you're reading this, it's true, you tutted and sighed a lot!). Consequentially the photos are a little awkward..
But anyway I wanted to share this lovely blouse I picked up in a charity shop, it's originally from Warehouse I think. There's no top button so I attached a clip on earring I found languishing on its own at a car boot sale..

  2. Haha photos with my mum taking shots are always awkward too! Anywho, this is such an appropriate outfit for a wonderful day spent at the art gallery. Give me Monet any day too I say!

  11. You look so lovely i want to weep! >_< hehe (but i won't, but that's only mostly because I'm all cried out cos I've been having a Game of Thrones marathon and am now scared to leave the house for fear of being beheaded)

    It's so sweet your momma took these photos! I am soo very bad at 'posing' for photos and mostly just burst out laughing (which is fine til i remember i look like a monster when i smile) You dont look awkward though! You seem to be a natural in front of the camera :D

    Mmmm a lot of modern art isnt to my taste O_O i went to see an art show recently a friend of mine put together and it was umm strange to say the least O_o it was kind of performance art i guess, with a lot of people running around frantically! It was a bit awkward! xoxoxoxo

  24. I'm not into modern art either - give me something traditional any day.
    Your coat is stunning & your new blouse looks great, love the print.
    Your mum did a great job, even if she was reluctant!

  25. wow, beautiful!
    i'm really not a fan of modern art - some people may think im wrong but i think it takes so much more skill to create a piece of 'classic' art.
    LOVE your outfit - amazing shirt!
