Leggings Are Not Trousers (and Leibster Award!)

Today's look is smart-casual with the combination of a tweed blazer from Camden and some leggings. I'm afraid I cannot say where I purchased these leggings - it was somewhere in London...
This tube skirt rarely gets worn, but today I thought it worked well with the rest of the outfit (I'm definitely not a fan of the 'leggings as trousers' look). Also, I love that the colours on the leggings emphasise the two-toned Zara boots.


* As you can see, I'm still having some problems with my picture layout. Hopefully I'll figure out a way to fix this issue soon.*

I love the slits in the sleeves of this River Island blouse, although they are highly impractical for carrying out everyday tasks. Oh well. I look super short in these pictures. Oh well.

Hope you like it!
