Gone with the wind

Jacket: Topshop//Mint green dress: Zara//Black top: my grandmother's(!)//Bag: Mulberry/Pin: Beautiful Clutter

I know these photos are pretty rubbish. It was one of those moments when you're walking along, come across a convenient wall to snap some outfit photos, then suddenly the wind picks up, and everything goes downhill. (and it starts to rain).
Anyway, no matter, as the real purpose of the post was to show off this gorgeous vintage school pin I won in Ellie's recent giveaway, which is from Jem's lovely Etsy shop! . This was my only chance in life to be a prefect (I think my mum has an actual Prefect one somewhere from her school days). The badge came beautifully packaged and wrapped in a page from Little Women <3

  21. I personally think a little windswept chic suits you! Breeze in your hair and ripply skirt :-) Really like your grandmother's top layered over your minty dress, so lovely!

    Also: so glad you liked the badge!!

  25. I was a prefect at school but we only got a different tie not a pin badge, which I was always gutted about! A few Christmases ago someone bought me a 'librarian' badge, I love it.

  26. I love your jacket! I was a prefect at school but we got a different shaped pin - one of those shield shaped ones. I still have it somewhere!

  28. I actually really like these photos! You look gorgeous as per, and your jacket is lovely. The pin is so cute and I LOVE that it came wrapped in a page from Little Women :')

    Thanks for the advice about photos - I really want to take more outdoors. Actually yours is one of the blogs that always makes me think 'oh god my last outfit would have looked so much better if I'd taken it outside in better lighting' haha. I'm definitely going to try taking some on a park, now it's just a matter of convincing my boyfriend to leave the confines of his cozy car long enough to take some snaps xoxo
