The Style Post: The Oversized Shirt Formulae

I don’t know about you, but for me getting dressed in the morning is a nightmare. Not only because I’m still half asleep and fall over a fair few times before I get the hang of things, but because I also stand in front of my wardrobe in a zombie-esk stance. I just have no idea what I’m doing!

Recently I decided enough was enough and I made a simple little formulae for myself on these days that goes something like this: oversized shirt + jeans + boots = done. Time spent on getting dressed is at an all time low and I’m not dressed like a scruffy boy – gold star for Suzie.

The shirt about is from Zara (as is the bag) but I’ve seen more affordable an recent versions pop up everywhere, primark, new look, H&M, they’re everywhere! Paired with my Joni jeans and mighty boots which are both from Topshop.

So the quest for the speediest wardrobe time in the morning ever is officially on, and I recently started a new project that might just get me there – in the mean time I’ll be relying on my oversized shirt formulae to keep me on track!

    I feel your pain Suzie, I get up in a morning and just want to throw on whatever's nearest. I may have to adopt your shirt, jeans and boots formula!

    A great plan! First of all because I adore all things Zara & secondly, oversize shirts are great, they're comfy, look great and also go perfectly with leggings (and most things at that) so this is a great lookxx

    I'm terrible with getting dressed early in the mornings, when I can be bothered the night before I lay my outfit out but mostly I do what you do. My formula is shorts + tights + blouse + knitwear + boots. All time laziness but I'd do anything for an extra few minutes in bed
