Jeggings And A Vest = Good?








Outfit: Karen Millen draped grey/black vest top, Mint Velvet black jeggings, New Look black platform wedges.


I just bought these today! I always get my shoes from New Look nowadays...

On a whim, I decided to wear my jeggings on their 3rd outing but with a regular top instead of a long top thus wearing them like jeans! Which I assume is their original purpose...

I'm someone who has always thought of leggings as a type of hosiery. Sure, there are people who just wear leggings as trousers but I always found it weird even if they did pull it off... So this was a big step for me!

I quite love this outfit mostly because it's so different from my usual girlie style. My colleagues and friends really liked/loved it but they couldn't stop mentioning how weird it was that I wasn't wearing a dress instead! I too couldn't stop looking at myself in our work mirrors haha! How conceited of me...

The top I'm wearing is from Karen Millen's Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. I wore this top a lot with a pale grey suit from the same season when I first bought it. I don't think I've worn it since then so it's been waiting to be worn again a good 6 months or so...

I've invested in a black crop top from ASOS to wear under dresses, etc that are too low on my cleavage:



I'm also contemplating investing in an orange shirt that has just been reduced in Karen Millen's end of season sale. I keep trying it on while it's quiet at work... I'd actually need to wear the crop top I just bought underneath it since it won't zip up all the way to my bust. Karen Millen clothes unfortunately run small on the bust area:

It's my leaving do tomorrow evening! Everyone's coming to mine for drinks then we're going out dancing! I have a few ideas on what to wear but I'm not completely sure yet... Thinking of wearing a skirt for daytime tomorrow - it's about bloody time I whipped out my skirts whether the weather is with me or not!

Thank you again and again for all your lovely comments!

Please note that I always comment back on YOUR blog not mine! (^_^)
