Sunday Best: Prim and Proper Revisited

Tweed pair Tweed
Blouse - Fearne Cotton for Very, Skirt & Necktie - Handmade, Mac & Clogs - Topshop.

Exactly one year ago today, I posted this set. I've blogged many outfits over the past few years but this remains one of my favourites. After a long week of daily outfits I wasn't really in the mood for stepping in front of the camera again so instead, here are my favourites from the first time around plus a few that failed to make the original cut.

I'm busy putting the finishing touches to my winter collection for Wayward Daughter and this Sherlock/Fantastic Mr Fox inspired outfit has been constantly on my mind, which is really quite fitting as this post was where the whole idea began.

  21. What great work. The tie has some wit to it and a definite Mrs Sherlock Holmes sensibility to it. Tweed is the quintessential British fabric.

  30. This is pretty much my dream outfit. Everything about it is perfect! I love the prim "heritage" print and the entire silhouette. My year of living in Scotland (Glasgow instead of Edinburgh) really inspired in me a love of tween, plaid, and neutrals, and this outfit brings back all of that. Adorable!
