Fashion: Getting a Little Shirty.

Over the course of winter my style has been bogged down with layers of black, checks and oh, some more layers. This spring I really wanted to try some new things and widen my horizons for cute outfits and things got a little shirty.

I’d always worn shirts but as outer shirts, unbuttoned, checked and baggy, to keep warm or to feel comfy but when I came across a few more ‘girly’ shirts I had to snap them up.

After trying on this blue spotted shirt from H&M I really liked the look on me, although it’s a little baggy and not the most flattering on my figure but when the buttons were done up to the top I felt like it went really well with my short hair. It’s quite a preppy look that I’ve never really gone for before but I enjoyed it enough to go buy another shirt.

This one is waaay more daring than I would usually go for but I thought I’d try it and I actually ended up really quite liking it.  It’s super feminine and girly which isn’t normally my style but this goes great with some blue jeans and converse for a very bright and refreshing spring look, be gone black layers!

The pattern is really pretty and detailed, lots of wild flowers with the occasional bright butterfly, it goes perfectly with my new tattoo (post here)!

I also think shirts are great for spring because they still have a long sleeve that can keep you warmer on the chilly spring days but can be rolled up during the warmer days for a more casually look. I’ve been wearing these with my new white leather converse and it’s such a fun bright look that I’ve been absolutely loving. 

I’m also planning on wearing a shirt and trouser combination to my friends wedding at the start of April instead of a dress, as I think it can be quite a grown up and sophisticated look. It’s quite interesting how one new piece of clothing can open up a whole new avenue for your style, isn’t it?
What do you guys think, do you like shirts? How do you style yours?
