Outfit: On Thursdays We Wear Retro

Cardigan -  Tesco | T-shirt - Primark | Skirt - Matalan
Tights - Primark | Shoes - Tesco 

On Thursday the week before last I had to go to a postgraduate skills workshop at university. This sort of outfit is fairly typical of what I wear when I have to go to something where something more vintage wouldn't necessarily be appropriate, but where I still want to remain looking somewhat 'retro' and feel comfortable with what I'm wearing. 

I've started to wear my wooly tights again since the weather is getting cold. The ones I'm wearing here are an oatmeal colour but mostly come out looking white on photos. They're very useful for the Autumn/Winter though. 

Sadly my tripod died a long overdue and fairly final death when I was taking these photos; it used to be my dad's and is around 25 years old so I reckon it's done pretty well. I will see if I can manage with it until Christmas (it still stands upright at least although it's permanently wonky and the threads have gone in enough screws that both of the handles have now fallen off it). I'm hoping to buy a DSLR in the Christmas sales so I will probably pick up a new tripod at the same time. Not long to wait now :)
