I think I'm going to call this look "pirate-vintage-boho-chic"... I've not really felt myself lately - I've been feeling in limbo, and hating the way I look - but when I threw this outfit together, that was it, I found myself a little. It's funny how making a little effort with the way you look can make you feel a teeny bit better about everything.
Ok, so, can we just take a moment to appreciate these amazing trousers? I was super disappointed when the lovely Claire from Mad Elizabeth Vintage said they were a size 14, but I'd fallen in love so I asked her to send them over anyway. Turns out they were quite small on the waist, and with a belt they fit just right.
Mad Elizabeth Vintage are based in Leeds, but you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook, & shop vintage here!
You might've seen a sneak peek of them on my antique shopping blog post the other day, but since I tripped over my own legs that day, I decided I should probably wear them rolled up! I just tacked them with a loose hand stitch, so that I can wear them full length on a day that I'm not feeling quite so clumsy!
The top and bag are two things that I rarely wear, but can't bring myself to ever get rid of! The bag is so chunky and sturdy, and just smells amazing. I got it a couple of years back when I was a finalist for the Company Casting Call! Seems like such a long time ago now...
Ok I apologise for the rambling, but I had the most exciting piece of news yesterday... plus it's Being Little's 3rd birthday today! In all the stress, changes and excitement recently, I totally forgot to mark it in any way. So this will have to do!
Here's to many more years :)
