A lifetime ago

Black trousers Mossimo - Pink scallop collar sleeveless shirt
White blazer Suzy Shier - Black patent shoes Zara 
Black leather vintage bag Craft & Barrow 

There use to be a time when I wore pins or brooches every.single.day.  It was the time I wore a uniform to work, which now seems like a lifetime ago. 
This brooch is from that era, if I am not mistaken it was a gift from my grandfather who is also now long gone. The stories this brooch could tell.

I used to wear brooches quite a lot - I have several from both my grandmothers and, even though I don't regularly wear them much these days, they are definitely treasured items that I'll always hold dear.

It is a beautiful brooch too! I like pieces like this that have sentimental value. even if they aren't worn much it's good to keep them around :)

Love this outfit on you. It's the perfect mix of professional plus personality in the details! I have a lot of brooches, too, and although I am not wearing them much right now, I keep them all, because I know I will want to be able to pull the perfect one out of my collection to wear at a later time.

I have never wore a brooch, but this combination with the scallop collar is making me rethink things

Brooches are some of my favourites pieces to wear aside from scarves. Such a great accessory. I like the blazer in your outfit here. <3

It's always interesting to me how pieces drift in and out of fashion, and I think broaches are making a comeback. Love your scalloped collar!
