You wanted all I had to give...

Look guys, I am rubbish. Sorry for my long absence. 
I have been a busy bee!

I have gotten myself a job!
A real 9 to 5 job. The boyf has also moved in and have been attempting to make the gym a very frequent part of my routine, plus getting a decent sleeping pattern sorted - no more 6 AM bedtimes for me as I now have to be up at 7 for work, so as you can imagine, I have been a little preoccupied! Don't know how the rest of you bloggers do it! 

However, for this post, I thought I would show you how I would style my seriously cool new over-sized shirt that I bought for work! 

Shirt and rucksack - Primark, Leggings - River Island, Socks - H&M, Creepers, Pasha Northampton (Now  Redbox)

So this is essentially how I wore the shirt for work, the dress code is smart casual, but that means no miniskirts, which has obviously been a bit of a problem considering that is pretty much all I wear.
So, all black, very sensible, perfect for those days when you just want to cover up and hide under something flattering, however, the sheerness of the fabric allows the wearer to add a little sexy twist to the outfit should they choose to. It also comes in cream and would make a great holiday wear, for throwing on at the beach or in the evenings with the studded belt that is included.
at £10 it is a bit of a bargain in my opinion.

Anywho. This is how I would take it from office to night out...

Leather shorts - River Island, Boots and necklace - Topshop, Vest (Under shirt) - New Look

For a night out I would just swap leggings for shorts and flats for heels.
I chose a chunky necklace as it stood out well against the black, and also matched with the cute gold buttons on the shirt.
Now these boots. These boots are my babies. They are fairly painful boots, but I love them so much that I am willing to put up with them. ( I have a black big toenail that proves my persistence, but come on... So freaking hot!)

I had been eyeing them in Topshop for about 5 months, however, at £100 they were too far out of my budget, so when they went into sale at £50 I decided to wait for a few days, then when I looked again and they still had them in my size I knew it was a sign I needed to buy them. 
Yes. NEEDED. Don't judge.

Once again, I digress, the gold detailing on the buckles also matched the buttons on the shirt so I thought they were a great combination!
I thought a blood red lip gave a slick pop of colour to the outfit, but still in keeping with my grungy style.

Now just need to find the time to go on a night out so I can actually show off this combination!

Gonna say ciao for now because I don't know when the heck I will be back.

  1. Love it,love the creepers I have the same, I need to get a white pair though and the blouse is so versatile.

  2. What a cool shirt-dress. You look amazing with and without the tights, such wonderful legs. And your hair is so beautiful as well. Congrats on the job and lovely look!


  3. I love how you've worn it for work - I cant to wear all black for works so it's always nice to get some inspiration for that!



Leave me a little something nice...
