OOTD - Denim Shirt!

So, technically, this isn't really an outfit of the day, it's from a couple of weeks ago when my lovely friend Roisin was moving back to (one of my favourite places in the world atm) Brighton. She is originally from there but has lived here for ten(?) years. I'm not quite sure the actual length of time but it's been quite a while. Anyway I miss her quite a bit after spending the majority of the starting months of my summer with her. Hope she's having a brilliant time, I've been awful with keeping in touch.

Roisin is on the left, the beauty and Lucy is my friend, the one on the right. I love Lucy's face in this she looks in her element, or much like this fellow..

She doesn't normally look like this AT ALL I must reiterate this fact, she is very pretty, but it's just this photo. I've probably embarrassed her loads now but I love her and she is REALLY pretty, its just the angle.

Anyway I'm using these photos as my camera is still broke, the tutorial didn't work, Ill either have to look at getting a new camera, or taking it to a better, less lazy camera shop that might be willing to actually help me rather than try and sell me a new camera just to make money. I also had to take this picture above using my laptop webcam, really sorry about the quality on that!

Mmmm noice sexy pose going on there Gem, better keep that bad boy to myself next time... NAT.

It was quite humid at the time, and I am what is known as a chronic sweater. Its not a medical condition I'm just quite sweaty. I'm sorry to tell you that disgusting fact about myself anyway. I needed a light outfit and leggins almost always comes into light outfits as I'm not a fan of the tops of my legs (but I am quite taken by my shapely calves if I do say so myself ;)) Anyway I teamed my denim shirt with a floral top and a brown belt. I wanted quite a casual laid back outfit as it was a Sunday afternoon for a pub lunch. Teamed with my trusty converse as always, which I need a new pair of after two/three years as I have a little hole where my little toe pokes out when it gets too hot, cheeky little toe.

(Thanks to Adele for taking these photos, my love!)

The denim shirt has been such a versatile look, I have worn it with everything (see my last OOTD post) and anything including (SHOCK HORROR) A DENIM SKIRT. Note: I am totally against double denim but as the two denims were different, light shirt, dark denim high waisted skirt, I THINK I avoided looking like a total 80's cowboy remixed.

I quite like the vintage retro style of oversized painters denim shirt, and have been on the look out for one on ebay. They toughen up a girly dress or add a casual edge to an otherwise pretty outfit. They're great for layering up when it gets chilly, especially now (even in August!!?) And look great tucked into denim skirts or shorts like I tried out.

How do you wear your denim shirts? Are you a loverrr of the double denim look or do you think it always will and always has been a fashion mistake!?

Thanks for reading, and commenting really apprecciate it!



  1. Girl I'm a chronic sweater too! It's embrassing to be sweating in the winter time, alas I deal with it! I finally found someone who has the same issue, yay! (Silver lining)

    Cute outfit! And I like your pose, it looks like a private joke between you and the camera man/woman & you was caught in the moment.

    Oooo I agree with you about the double denim, as long as it's two different colors or texture it' all good.

    I love your fashion book! I think I might make one of my own...

  2. i'm a chronic underarm sweater... but i'm always cold. so imagine it being really cold outside, but having pit sweat marks! grrrr.. love the outfit!

  3. Double denim always has and always will be terrible to me.. the only way it will ever work is if its pitch black denim jeans teamed with a light/white denim cropped jacket! haha.. great blog though.. i'd really appriciate it if you could check mine out?

    i only have a few posts so far.. kinda new to this thing :D x

  4. Thanks very much for the comments!
    LaCara: I know the sweating sucks but I'm a pro at hiding it now! Thanks, the pose was just mucking about like ya said :) The double denim is a brave one for me trying something new. Go for it on the book front it really helps me see what kinda things will go with certain items in my wardrobe!
    Jill: I'm not too bad underarm its just my face really when I get to hot. Thanks!
    Colour: Double denim in blues can make you look like a cowboy sometimes, great advice with the black and white, thanks aswell, checked out your blog so cute, now a follower :)
