Desperate times call for desperate measures. It's time to get your head out of the dumps and your legs in the air!

Almost sold this sweater on Ebay and last minute decided I would keep it and I'm very glad I did. I love the color of it but was iffy about the fit on me (I have wide shoulders and no bust haha, I always say I've got a boyish figure..) Wore it to work and got so many compliments on it, I was definitely surprised at the feedback I got. The cut out detailing along the shoulders is what makes it special, it shows of just enough skin.




























(sweater: Topshop |skirt: Forever 21 |belt: JCrew |rings: Soixante Neuf & YSL |shoes: Dolce Vita)

I know, picture overload. I was happy that my replacement wireless remote came :)

  4. You were going to sell it!! No..its gorgeous and I think it fits you amazing..the fact that you have wide shoulders is even better for me..I think it makes you look powerful..and the color is great on you! So glad you didn´t sell it

  10. Love the skirt and love how you styled it! Loving the satchel too :)

    As for the Bonny boot, I'll check for sure what size the boots are (I want to say 38) I'm a size 7 in US shoes. The boots are absolutely comfy and they fit well (just wore them yesterday and wondered why I haven't blogged them more). As for more pics, I'd be happy to take some and send them to ya when I get home tonight :) But I think they're totally worth having! They're on sale now at All Saints too btw!

  11. That sweater is gorgeous, good call on keeping it for yourself. Loving the outfit, the colours work so well together and that skirt is amazing!

  12. Will let ya know for sure as soon as I get home. I do have room in mine and I'm a true 7 (sorrow...used to be a lovely 6 1/2) so you may be better off getting the smaller size.

  17. Oh! I own that skirt!!! I LOOOVE IT! Honestly I have to stop myself from wearing it all the time. P.S I've pulled it up and have worn it as a dress.

    Looks great on you! It's so fun to see how people experience the same items so differently. I love the way you wore this skirt and it looks completely different than the way I wore it. So neat!

    Love the sweater , you don't have a boy's figure...crazy lady.

  31. broad shoulders and a small chest isn't necessarily boyish. (i may be biased because that's my shape). and i think you look nothing but ladylike in this outfit. fantastic maxi.
