Astronomical


[Dress - H&M, Blazer - Charity Shop, Leggings - Bleached DIY, Necklace - Two chains clasped and layered together]
Edit: Sorry about how awful this last photo is with all my shopping in the background! Will get a better photo of them and pop it in a post soon! =]

I wore this for shopping and lunch at wagamama at the weekend. It was a pretty sucessful day; my food was delicious, and the boy put up with me spending (ahem) 55 minutes in the Topshop sale... Though, in my defence, the changing room queues were ridiculous and took up at least... ten minutes?! Haha

The necklace is made of two chains that I bought from a Topshop jewelery sale a year or so ago. They were down to 50p each, so naturally I bought six (!), but I'm so glad I did as there are so many ways to layer them.
I've even managed to create a body-harness out of them when messing around recently, I might wear it out sometime soon!

The leggings are just an old pair that I attacked with bleach a while back and they came out purpley/red, which was a surprise, but a fun one!
They remind me of some of the astronomical photographs that lots of bloggers have posted recently, hence the title!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a lovely week! =]

  30. drollgirl - All you need to do is buy some simple chains with clasps and mess around with two or three at a time, clasping different parts together and making the length longer and shorter and you're sure to find loads of really great different looks! =]
