The Real Her



 Denim Shirt - Topshop/Ebay
Freedom Tee - Zara
Leggings - H&M
Converse White Leather
Jewellery - Fashionology

I've been wanting to get a denim shirt for years and years. For some reason I never felt compelled to spend the money when I've seen them, even in places like Primark, I just didn't feel I'd wear it often enough.
But finally I went ahead and bought a Topshop one on ebay, for about £12. It's a size 10 but in an oversized fit so its really baggy and boyish which I like. Its a super soft pale denim which Primark ones aren't so I'd suggest paying a bit more for better quality, and fastens with pearl poppers all the way up the front and around the cuffs. I just wore it with a loose fit tee, leggings and converse for a casual day look.
By layering up the silver jewellery I felt like Caggie Dunlop and now all I need is the accent (and the money.)

I'm looking forward to wearing it with so many other things, I think I'll even get away with doing the whole double-denim thing in the spring, dark jeans only though. If anyone has any ideas or tips I'd love to hear them.

I've been listening to Drake's latest album so much at the moment (hence the post title) which is not usually my type of music but his voice is therapeutic and so different from other artists in the same genre. My fave tracks being Shot For Me and Make Me Proud. (and Headlines) jeez its just too hard to choose!

  1. I love the casual-yet-still-put-together look!
    I was wondering.. how do you get your blog title in the middle of the page and not on the left? It's been driving me crazy because it looks so much better but I don't know how to change it!

  4. @Hannah - I just played around with the white space around my blog title in photoshop (re-sizing the image also) until it sat where I wanted it to on my blog :) It takes a bit of guess work and a few tries to get right x
