Little House on the Prairie

Happy Sunday!

Today I've decided to give my new shirt an outing. I absolutely love it even though the neckline and the embroidery and two things that would usually put me right off.

Shirt and Jeans: Topshop, Birkenstock-a-likes: F&F at Tesco

I bought a size 6 in this shirt as it said it was oversized, I wasn't expecting it to be quite so big though but I really like it because it hides a multitude of sins! The fabric is really lightweight so it's wearable on sunny days without being constrictive and I can still move about as much as I want. I feel like the embroidery makes what would otherwise be a simple shirt into something quite exquisite. I really love the whole billowing feel, and the prim design, like the title of this post suggests it does feel a bit like something you'd see on Little House of the Prairie. I'm planning to pair this with some black skinnies, black boots and a trilby for my trip down to London because comfort is important to me when I have a two hour train ride!

Can I also just say how much I love these Birkenstock lookalikes from F&F at Tesco. I have so much love for the ugly sandal trend at the minute and whilst I would really love some actual Birkenstocks these are just as good as the real thing and they're metallic. They accidentally fell into my shopping trolley the other day I needed them and I think for £10 they're an absolute bargain and really, really versatile.

What do you all think of this shirt and the sandals? Would you wear something oversized or are you like me a little scared of the insinuated bulk that isn't really there but could be. I think I'm over that fear where this shirt is concerned, it's too pretty not to feel confident in!

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.

  1. I love the shirt, but I am massively into oversized tops and then fitted jeans/leggings. I like Birkenstocks too, I don't own a pair (yet) but I've got my eye on some in H&M.
