WHAT I WORE – THE LAST GARRISON

I am writing this while in the depths of the worst food coma I’ve had in many a year. I went to Nandos tonight and I think I ate everything in the restaurant. Literally everything. Even the dessert. I look (and feel) about 8 months pregnant right now, I kinda feel like I should be demanding a baby shower and decorating the spare room. So, while I sit here and swear I will never eat this much again (until next week) I thought I’d share this outfit with you lovely lot!

I saw this top in Topshop the week before I went to London (incidentally the same day I got the shoes) and decided not to buy it and save my money for Oxford Street. Only ever since I left it in the store I literally thought about it constantly until about 2 days before I was due to head down, I couldn’t resist any longer and snapped it up online with next day delivery. I’m so glad I did. Not only is it the perfect level of sheer (read: not too see through, but see through enough to embrace the grungey trend right now) it was also the perfect length for me to wear as a dress. Now I can assure you I have a skirt on underneath which you will see in the photos below, but I will admit it doesn’t look like it in the above photo. I absolutely loved this outfit though, I felt so cool wearing it round London and the slouch, over sized fit of the top made it really comfortable for a day battling the crowds.

I seem to be massively embracing the whole grunge/90’s trend at the moment, and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s the most ‘myself’ I’ve felt in a very long time. Are there any trends you’re loving at the moment?

    hahah next time you go out to eat you should invite me- I like your style! Food comas are just the best….though sorely regretted once the tummy aches kick in. And I lvoe to play with grunge pieces every once in a while too- that flowy top is ace. I can see it being layered in 100 different ways.xo marlenMessages on a Napkin
