OK, you’re going to have to trust me on this one, it really is perfect when it’s ironed. I was a bit disappointed when I saw these pictures – my shirt just doesn’t seem to appear in all its glory. Mainly due to the fact that it didn’t get a good old ironing session, but also because much to my dismay it simply doesn’t seem to be very photogenic.
I guess the above picture isn’t really blog-worthy, but at least it shows off the shirt quite nicely. Even though it doesn’t translate that amazingly into pictures, I still love this shirt to bits. The Celine and Chloe-esque lady-like blouse/shirt look has been one of my favourite trends – the high-street were (and still are) doing some great pieces and it took a lot of self-control to avoid filling up my whole wardrobe with them. I actually regret not having purchased a few more pieces, since it’s a pretty classic look that shouldn’t really date, right?
I fell for this shirt from the minute I saw it in the window display. I have actually never bought anything from Jane Norman before, but I think they nailed it with this design. The sheerness, the gold buttons, the military style… I love everything about it, and I kinda like the fact that I have to wear something underneath it – it forces me to have to be playful.

How do you make some outfit shots more cultural and therefore interesting? By posing right next to a bust at Rubenshuis, of course! Back to the frivolous, I went on a ridiculous trek for this shirt – and although I was initially unsuccessful, my story has a happy ending because I purchased it online. Here are some images from their website, they’re pretty low resolution and again my shirt doesn’t seem to be camera-friendly – I doubt I would have gone for it had I just seen the online pictures, although I quite like how it’s been styled with the leather shorts…

To finish off with a little (more) self-indulgence, the lovely Lauren from Lauren Loves has kindly featured me in her Blog Loving section, which I’m feeling pretty happy about because Lauren’s blog in itself is amazing! Her beauty reviews are addictive (I’ll soon be starting a list of all the products I want to try because of those reviews), plus she does all kinds of fashion posts, making her blog super varied and fun. So to find out what really goes on in my crazy fashion head, click here. Thanks so much Lauren!
p.s.: A big thank you to all the people who have been checking out and commenting on my blog lately – it means a lot to me and it’s nice to know that someone actually looks at the blog!
