#OOTD: Floral Shirts.


Thought i'd share with you my new floral shirt find from Primark! Personally i think what a steal, and shirts / blouses are probably one of my favourites, this one is quite bold which normally i cant pull off so i was pleasantly surprised :)!






Floral Shirt - £12 Primark
Dark blue Joni Jeans - £38 Topshop
Brown moccasins (old) - Primark 

So i went on a little bit of splurge in town on Saturday, i had the day off work for once and thought what better way to spend my time than to hit the busiest shopping period (annoying people everywhere) and spend money i dont have :)! I was really happy i found this shirt in Primark, normally i find the blouses / shirts in there look great on the hanger but have an awkward fit, and usually i wouldn't go for a floral pattern so bold cause of my ultra pale skin but i think this actually works for me!!! 

There was a little collar chain / link attached across the collar tips which is quite a nice touch by primark, but may come across as slightly tacky but easily removable so i thought why not! Also i love the rolled up sleeves look, its perfect for when the sleeves are longer than elbow length but not quite long enough to reach the wrists, otherwise i think they tend to just puff out a bit, helps to give the sleeves a rounding off. Also - the Joni jeans, you just cant go wrong with these, they are so comfy and the material is so soft and stretchy. I love anything high-waisted as its best suited to my figure, i'm lucky to have a thin waist but not so lucky with my wide hips and thighs so these are just great for exaggerating my waist. 

I still have some other items i bought so keep your eyes peeled as i'm planning to have some more posts soon on my other recent purchases in the next couple of days... 

Have you found anything unusual in the shops you've laid your eyes on recently you wouldn't normally purchase? I'd love to hear.

    1. Yeah they didn't even have it In my size I just went for a size 14 cause I kinda like it baggy but still doesn't look too big I don't think. I know we don't have one - I really don't like the website though, I can't seem to find bits online like I do in the stores! xXx
