Essential plaid

Someone told me this outfit reminded them of a school girls uniform but I was not offended because I looked spectacular. The shirt dress is quite thin and a little short at the sides so I wore black shorts underneath just in-case. The thin sweater added warmth and the belt was the finishing touch.

The shirt dress was quite a recent purchase from tkmaxx but I’ve worn it so much already, it is definitely one of my SS15 fashion essentials. I’d love another shirt dress in a bright rich colour or with a crazy psychedelic pattern so I’m going to put that on my wishlist along with 101 other things.

Uniform

wpid-img_20150505_204156.jpgAn oversized shirt with straight jeans makes a pretty awesome outfit. I would usually have buttoned up the shirt right to the top but this time I left the top few buttons undone, just to try something different.

The outfit was a success (in my opinion) and I had a pretty good day when I wore it. Also I’m now on the hunt for more oversized shirts/blouses because I think the shirt+jeans combo might be my new uniform.

Snippets of the month: November

November has been a pretty good month for me. I feel like lots of things I’ve been worrying about are all going well for me. This post is going to be pretty long so I’ll just get on with it…

So first up at the start of the month I started volunteering again at the charity shop I volunteered at over the summer. One of the days I saw the most beautiful vintage shirt ever and it was ‘Christian Dior’ I really want it, in a major way.

I got nominated for The Versatile Blogger award I was both surprised and grateful!

I finally started wearing a coat and as I live in England and it was getting to the point where I couldn’t go out without a coat and not feel cold. Over the next week I’ll try and do a post on my winter coats which hopefully you’ll like 🙂

OUTFITS

So here are just a few outfits I wore this month, I originally intended to post my outfits regularly but I often don’t get round to snapping pics of what I’m wearing, sorry!

wpid-IMG_20131126_214557-1.jpgWhen it’s cold outside or I’m not feeling too great I get the urge to dress all in black. In this outfit I layered a really cool semi-sheer patterned tank top over what I was wearing and tucked it  into my trousers.

wpid-IMG_20131125_094947.jpgSo the jacket and sweater are both from h&m. Its a really simple outfit which I wore with skinny jeans and it always gets me compliments.

wpid-lmg-pic-0330.jpgI wore this to college and afterwards I did some volunteering which is where I am at in the photo. The boots are like ‘builder style’ they so comfortable and I wear them all the time in the colder months.
wpid-IMG_20131129_075204.jpgI really love this outfit some people might be like ‘errr what were you thinking’ with the clashing prints of the top and sweater and then the studded vest over it, but its everything I love about it. The denim vest and striped sweater are from h&m and the top is from next.

TV 

Peaky Blinders– I really love this show. Its a historical drama series on a Birmingham gang called the Peaky Blinders. Cillian Murphy plays the main character Thomas Shelby and he always looks super handsome. You might be reading this thinking ‘BORING!’ but if you click on the word ‘Peaky Blinders’ you’ll get a link to the trailer and I guarantee you’ll be blown away!

Styled to Rock US- So last year their was actually a British version of this and I loved it oh so much. I’ve been long awaiting the US version and now that Its finally here I’m hooked! The show was created by Rhianna, basically each week the contestants have to design an outfit for  celeb… —> click here for the trailer
