A couple of weeks ago I blogged about finally getting my hands on the Tee and Cake Dinosaur tee from Topshop which I've wanted for ages - and here it is! I've worn it absolutely loads since I bought it, this particular occasion was a couple of weeks ago to go down to Guildford to visit my friend Kate and eat cheesy pasta and drink loads of coffee.

This is pretty much my standard weekend uniform at the moment - sturdy weather repelling boots, thick tights and one of a number of interchangeable t-shirts and skirts. It's easy, warm and comfy and I don't need to think too much about whether everything goes together because all my clothes are blue, red, black, white and grey! For the past few years most of my clothes have been some sort of variant on the French flag basically!

What's your winter uniform?

Love this t-shirt. Think I saw Effie wearing it too, from the blog Effie's make-up blog. I also purchased that blue and black stripey skirt you had on in an earlier post, love it! x

I love the t-shirt, makes me regret not buying it when I saw it! I'm also a big fan of skirts with t-shirts and throw a cardigan ove rit when it's colder, it really is so comfy.

such a good outfit! i love the mix of textures, so aesthetically pleasing. i'd definitely find myself wearing this all the time if i owned the components! xx

Sophie said...

Such a cute tee and looks so easy to wear - very suitable for these chillier days! ox

Kate said...

Oh Harriet, I love your lazy weekend outfits. They look so cool & well put-together. I need to find myself more easy-to-wear skirts like this one, I'm in a huge jeans rut & need shaking out of it!

LapindeLune said...

my absolute favourite colours here! I love the skirt so much, especially with grey tights - i have a similar skirt which I am wearing almost constantly at the moment, it just goes with everything and feels so right! I only wish i'd bought 2 of them, but sadly they are sold out now.

Love that tee so much!

Sherin said...

I've seen that t-shirt and absolutely love the print. Love how you paired it with the pretty skirt.

PinkBow said...

You can not go wrong with the French flag. Good look on you.

Hannah said...

Love this tee, I have a very similar one I am yet to blog about. I want to wear mine to the Natural History museum and see the dinosaurs cos I'm a weirdo like that haha x

LilyLipstick said...

Such a cute t-shirt! I love Hannah's idea of wearing it to the Natural History Museum! My winter uniform is a bit of a disaster..for the last couple of weeks I've been wearing denim shorts, thick tights and boots as I don't really do winter clothes. I've not been too cold but I do feel a bit silly when I see people in proper winter outfits! x

EilidhPie said...

I remember seeing this on your instgram & thinking how awesome it was! I love the skirt too :) xo

Gemma Satire said...

Your skirt is really nice, I've been looking for something similar myself! AND I always have a stack of adaptable t-shirts that I can team up with any pair of jeans or skirts. Mostly band t-shirts. My clothes too are dead dark colours and I suppose verging on the French side, I do not suit anything coloured whatsoever!

hello, pretty! love your t-shirt, it's so cute! xx

Mat said...

nice to wear something educational! my gf has that too and everyone says she looks like a 5 year old boy in it

Halal, French flag color scheme is the best to me, reliable and classy. Plus you don't have to go nuts infront of your closet to match things up!

Loving the t-shirt, that neck line never works on me but the print is so adorable, I might give it a shot, still. x

Sophie said...

I love the contrast of a smart skirt with a casual tee. Really works!

You literally described my winter uniform in this post

Emily @ Wardrobe Block said...

I'm terrified of dinosaurs (really) but I love this tee!

Winnie said...

I love the tee and those pretty heart earrings! I think my winter essentials are dresses and thick woolly tights and a scarf. Always about comfort and keeping warm!

Helen said...

I love those boots! I really need some new ones. Also adore that t-shirt, my favourite t-shirts are ones with nice designs on plain white tees.

My Hideaway said...

This is basically my summer uniform, minus the tights and boots. For me, it's easy and comfortable (at least as comfortable as you can be in the hot, humid, DC summers). Love your tee shirt! :)

Kimberlee said...

How cute! It looks like a t-shirt my nephew has, he's obsessed with dinosaurs :)

underthewillowtrees said...

Dinosaur top= love it! I tried on the Tee and Cake 'Mustaches of the world' tee yesterday, but I couldn't justify buying it as I probably couldn't get away with wearing it to work. How sad is that?! Think I need to go back and buy it...
