Cut-out Blazer

26 August 2009






I don't start school in London for about another month or so, but I know alot of other people are already back to school or about to be. If I were starting school this week, this would be my ideal 'back to school' outfit. I had yet another succesful thrifting trip and picked up this blazer. The cut-outs on the sleeves is what attracted me most.

Anyways, I hope everyone who started school this week is having a good one! Meanwhile I'll be working my soul away to save money for my studies abroad.

Wearing: thrifted bag, blazer; f21 skirt & shoes; target socks
