Boucle Jacket with Bow-Tie

Hello all! 
I'm back at long last, after a busy week of go-go-go! On Thursday I finished my first year of university for the summer, and I have absolutely no idea how I am going to even begin filling the FOUR MONTHS until September. So it's quite likely you'll be seeing a lot more of me on here! This look is sort of undeliberately Gossip Girl meets English all-girls boarding school, perhaps I am subconsciously rebelling after years of having to wear a hideous kilt as my school uniform. In fact, I was sent home to change on my first day of sixth-form because I turned up in a huge 'poofy' skirt and military-style jacket, complete with gold buttons and shoulder pads. Michael Jackson would have been proud... but apparently this was deemed inappropriate business-wear. I probably should have chosen to wear a trouser suit from M&S, what can I say? I like to live my life on the edge. (insert sarcasm here)
Jacket : ASOS. Shirt : Topshop.

I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend!

  4. This is very St.Trinian's, no doubt, but I really love it. It's so cool to realise that our styles can go from ultra edgy and quirky to super vintage or preppy. Now, that's eclectic!
