Grey marl and (p)leather....

When it's grey and cold outside, I always go back to basics. Usually that would be a pretty dress or something bright but Mark bought me this grey marl t-shirt from Hobbs a while ago and I can honestly  say I have never worn a comfier t-shirt. It is the perfect slouchy fit which means it is comfortable to wear but the illustration elevates it to something a bit more special. 

T-shirt: Hobbs, pleather skirt: Topshop, tights: ASDA
I also like the fact it is long enough in the body to wear with this pleather skirt. Pleather is a bit of a contentious fabric but I think as long as you keep the rest of your outfit simple, then you can't really go wrong... it's definitely a lot more fun than denim!


This outfit is a bit of a departure from the norm for me, I wouldn't usually wear anything this slouchy (or colourless!) but it was fun to break out of my comfort zone... 


Luckily, the owl print made it much more Maria friendly! ;)


An owl in loafers and cat eye glasses is potentially quite creepy but I actually think it is pretty darn cute!

Would you wear (p)leather? What are your basics?

I love the tee! The design on it is so cute. And the faux leather skirt looks great on. I think it's time to dig my one from last summer out.

Oooh, I love this outfit on you! It's good to sometimes break away from the usual style and try something a little different.

That top is so cute! Definitely not what I'm used to seeing in you but it looks wonderful. My basics tend to be a pair of skinny jeans and a coloured t-shirt, something that is easy to throw on without any thought. I like the idea of trying to get more separates though, maybe try and mix it up a bit. That skirt, while simple, definitely makes a statement.
Have a great weekend xo

I feel this is such a me outfit, slouchy tee shirt and black skirt! I really want that tee-shirt now.. its looks like me with the glasses and loafers! I think you can pull this off just as well as pretty dresses.

I am a big fan of leather or pleather skirts, and I love how you've paired it with such a cute tee to make it more day-friendly!

Such a cute tee! :D I'd definitely wear pleather - been toying with the idea of eBaying the pleated pleather H&M skirt in fact! :)
