Ever since I saw Amy from Wolfwhistle wear this outfit, I’ve been obsessed with finding a denim shirt so I could wear a similar outfit. However, my search for a shirt that fits has been frustrating. I bought it this one from Style369 (before my Evans/Style369 year long boycott), I ordered it in a size 26 – usually plenty big enough for me – and it barely did up! Alas the bigger sizes had sold out on both sites by the time I had returned it.
I then won one on eBay. Again a 26 and again it was FAR too small! Kirsty inherited that one – you can see her wearing it here.
So when I put out the cry on Twitter lots of people came back and pointed me to Very.co.uk and this shirt. I learnt from my previous mistakes and sized up to a 28. The shirt arrived over the weekend and you know what, once again its JUST fits! What is it with denim shirts? Why do the run so small? Or is it just me??
Anyway – here is how I wore it this week:
Denim Shirt – very.co.uk
Wide legged jeans - Evans
Shoes – Dorothy Perkins
Earrings – ASOS
I don’t like the outfit. I didn’t feel comfortable in it and looking at these pictures, I look like my mum! Don’t get me wrong my mum dresses great for a 61 year old – but I’m NOT 61. The shirt is a bit too tight for me to wear with the jeans but I’m sure it’ll be better with skirts. I might have to buy a men’s XXXL shirt to get the fit I want.
Oh well – you win some you lose some.
