Tie: H&M (men’s department)
Belt: KappAhl, I think

I’ve been having A Week, so I decided today was a day for my new awesome tie and my best shoes. These are some of my tallest shoes, but they are quite comfortable and pleasantly solid, and they have beautifully clean lines. The colour is fabulous, and matches the bitching elbow patches on the blazer.
I don’t wear these jeans that often, because I’m not quite sure what to do with a bootcut, but I do like the colour.

Jesus, that’s a lot of H&M in one outfit.
This is, like, a masterclass in wearing all of your clothes at once. I love pairing this blazer with the leopard print belt, for no reason I can really recognise.
Scarf: Alexander McQueen, via eBay

This is a prime example of my uniform: graphic tee, blazer, jeans, Cons. It’s probably a little sad that tucking in the shirt and adding a scarf counts as quite a radical experiment. The jeans are sort of a bronzey colour. They are sparkly and ridiculous, though sadly quite a lot of the glitter has washed off.
These shoes feature in quite a few of the outfits I’ve photographed already. They are wearable in quite a narrow range of temperatures at the moment: colder than -5 and my toes will fall off, despite hand-knit wool socks, and above +2 and the melting snow will seep through. Still, these shoes have seen a lot. The Vegas Strip, the Grand Canyon, Hollywood, London, Oxford, Cambridge, Amsterdam… They are my go-to travelling shoes, because they’re comfortable as anything and really versatile, if you dress like me. :P

Dress: Seppälä, at a guess
The dress is actually a tunic, but I’m short enough to get away with it, I think. It’s jersey, and therefore the most comfortable thing I own. The blazer is also some sort of knit material. There are also cognac-coloured faux-suede elbow patches, which are SO AWESOME.
