Cut outs and Chelsea boots

Outfit - Glamorous shirt, River Island jeans, ASOS boots

When it comes to transitional dressing, I’m the worst. Obviously this doesn’t bode well for someone living in a country that mostly experiences a between-seasons kind-of climate – Britain tries it’s hardest to show us some sun but can’t quite get there, bless it.

As a result my staple uniform is shirt + jeans + ballet pumps/brogues + statement necklace. It just always works. So when Manchester-based (♥!) Glamorous offered to send me a piece I was immediately drawn to this top; old habits die hard but the polka dot print and cut-out collar add interest!

I spent ages browsing the site before making my choice so I’m happy to say I really love this shirt! It was ideal for shopping yesterday, first rummaging outdoors in Camden Passage before moving inside to Westfield Stratford, and I was approached twice in Topshop by girls asking if I worked there – surely an official seal of approval from the fashion masses?! What do you think?

What I wore:

Shirt: Glamorous* (also found on Facebook and @ukglamorous)

Jeans: River Island (hella old)

Boots: ASOS

Belt: Next (stolen borrowed from Mum)

Bag: Edina Ronay via TK Maxx

Sunglasses: Ray Ban Wayfarers via

Lips: No7 Wild Volume lipstick in Forever Cherry

    I don’t normally feel flattered when people mistake me for staff…

      I *always* do when it’s in Topshop – the staff always look so cool! Just me though…?

  • Stephanie / FAIIINT

    Love the shirt! I was exactly the same when they asked to send me something too, I must have spent hours looking & deciding! Ended up going for basically the black dress version of this shirt, I seem to be obsessed with cut out detailing at the moment! I’m really loving those boots though, I’ve been looking for a similar pair for ages & just can never find any I like enough to buy, the shape of these is perfect though & the double zips are such a nice detail!
