Hey look, it's me and I'm wearing hardly any black!! Following on from this post about steering away from wearing no colour, UO hooked me up with some more non-black beauties and my GOD have I been converted.
I've been trying to not buy wear-once kinda items for a while now. I've not shopped properly in Primark for well over nine months (there's nothing wrong with Primarni, just to stress - I'm tryna invest... Ya feel?!), I've got a mental list going on in my head of everything I no longer wear and want to get rid of once I'm back home for summer and I've got a second mental list of staples I'm gonna finally buy once my bank account doesn't tell me I'm -£400 (woops).
Speaking of staples, I literally can't think of anything better than this shirt dress. I've been eyeing up white shirts for longer than what would probably be considered normal now, but I know shirts aren't always my bag and sometimes they make me look a bit too frumpy. BREAKTHRU. This is the one. I'm onto a winner.
I can't do the typical 'capped' style on short sleeved shirts and long sleeves drown me. Sleeves that aren't an annoying awkward length - Check. Pockets so I can hide my hands and stash away packets of crisps (oi don't deny you do it too) - Check.
Long enough to be a dress, not too long to be a top - Check.
I'm converted, lads.
Unless I didn't eat or leave my flat for a year straight, student life means owning a Burberry trench is nigh-impossible but, I'm more than happy with this lil dupe. It's linen, so poifect for the warmer months but slightly oversized to layer up come October.
