Bootcut jeans & polo neck tops - a no no?

I can't stop thinking that there's at least 1 person in the world that now thinks I am not to be trusted when it comes to clothes. She's probably right too..
Let me explain.
About a year ago I was asked to do a little wardrobe 'resurrection' for someone. When reviewing the contents of my customer's wardrobe, I realised it's full of polo neck jumpers & tops. I wasn't sure how to break the news (it's never easy) but I strongly expressed my view on roll necks: they are never to be worn by anyone who actually owns a neck.
I swore on my own wardrobe that any such thing would not be ever seen even near my closet.

And here we are, a year later...

What can I say. I'm sure I swore on skinnies before as well so it's only appropriate that I paired my Orla Kiely printed top for Uniqlo with a pair of bootcut jeans. It happened to be the perfect outfit for the crazy weather the day had it in for us. Neck or no, I stayed warm!

Top - Uniqlo
Jeans & waistcoat - H&M
Boots - New Look

It's in the details...

Bag - Zara
Gold ring - Chupi @ Coldlilies
Belt - Penneys

Check out this cool Google + Hangout with Orla Kiely talking about the collection for Uniqlo!
