Bottle green, navy blue and cracked brown leather...school girl chic?

Top:ASOS, skirt: ASOS, belt: vintage Laura Ashley, shoeboots: Office
Recently I have noticed that my style has become much sleeker and toned down and clothes that I wouldn't have looked at a year ago I am now being drawn to. When I first bought this skirt I wore it a lot with stripes and red tones but I think it looks equally good, completely pared down. I don't know whether preferring a more classic look is a sign of me growing up and my style evolving or just a sign of me becoming less adventurous in my old age?! 


 I really liked the earthy tones and slight schoolgirl vibe I got with the bottle green and navy together- it's just a shame that my uniform wasn't this! I have to say though, my skirts were nearly as short at school :P  These shoes always remind me of the 'sensible shoes' I had to wear for school but obviously much much nicer! I can't seem to stop wearing this belt either, it's the perfect shade of brown to match my bag and shoes and tie the outfit together and I can see this accessories combination becoming a staple throughout Autumn... 


My attempts at taking photos with the tripod seem to be improving slightly, I only took about 20 of this outfit ;) I do miss having Mark around to take my photos and now my siblings are back at school I am reliant on my tripod and a teeny tiny remote!  


Outtake of the day comes courtesy of me awkwardly trying to hide the remote as my ankle snaps off... ah well! 

Has your style evolved? What are your favourite colour combinations?

I too find my style changing with time! :) And also I'm drawn to more subtle colours, more tailored pieces- I think it must be maturity and wisdom that draws us to those pieces :)

I saw the title of this and it made me chuckle, because I had the exact same thought about something I was wearing the other day.

I actually didn't mind my school uniform, but this is very chic and just think how good we would all have looked in this for school!

Also, having shoe envy....

I love how your style is evolving and it's certainly making me more aware of what I wear. Can't wait to see where you are going in life and in style.

The blue and green are perfect together. I love the whole look. And the shoes top it off perfectly.

Fantastic look! Basics are the way forward, i seem to be buying more and more these days. Great colour combo for autumn too, i love the green!

PS I envy you getting your legs out in this chilly weather, I resigned myself to tights or socks and boots a few weeks ago, freezing! :-)

I love these colours on you. The shape of this outfit is also very flattering, I'm loving it!

My style has definitely become more sophisticated lately, I choose colours now I wouldn't have chosen a year ago! My favourite combo at the moment is wearing dusky pink with wine colours. X

I love this outfit Maria! Very swish. I've noticed that as I grow up my style gets a lot more sophisticated. Though I do still love my crazy outfits every now and then. x
