Spring Shirt & Shoes

Pass the gingham scrunchie and matching socks because clearly I’m living in the 90’s. I picked up this shirt from Zara a week or so ago after a meeting and was in a serious hurry. Usually I end up letting lots of little Zara gems get away – the Brighton store is totally one of those buy it or lose it types – but as I was in such a rush it was a grab (pay, obvs) and go situation.

I was a bit unsure of what I was putting together when I got ready last Saturday – it was sunny but I was unsure of how warm it would be. So on went my new shirt and trusty leigh jeans. Plus the hat for extra warmth and to assist the bad hair day I was having. I’m looking forward to pairing it with a shorts/tights combo as I think it will look more put together. Before heading out the door I slipped into my new Miss Selfridge boots – possibly the comfiest heels I’ve ever owned. They’re all new and shiney, and are made that little bit better by the gold cap.



Hat: Missguided

Shirt: Zara

Jeans: Topshop

Boots: Miss Selfridge*
