Next to Me: OOTD


For a long time now I've wanted a sheer cream shirt. I was after something 'utilitarian' and not the fitted type with a big pussy bow. Yesterday I found this shirt (Link!) in Topshop and I knew it was perfect. It's pretty sheer so I'd wear a cami (as I've done here) underneath for day-to-day wear and perhaps opt for just a bra or bandeau underneath on a night out. The shirt has a slit down the back which I absolutely love! I think it makes it stand out a little more compared to the other shirts on the high street.

I've also been obsessing over Torques (metal collar necklaces) for the longest time ever after seeing them on Morven's blog- Cats and Rocking Chairs. The gold torque I am wearing is from River Island, I also bought a silver one in a slightly different style at the same time which I love. I like to see the metal peeking out from the collar of the shirt, it adds something a little different to my outfit.

I'm wearing this with my coated Leigh jeans from Topshop. I don't think I'll ever buy another style of jeans in my life, they are so flattering! I'm also wearing my new flats from River Island. I think the weather is getting ever so slightly warmer which means I don't have to wear my boots every single day and this makes me happy. I'm also obsessed with the 'leather' and suede look on bags, shoes and everything else so I had to buy these!
As you may have noticed I'm also wearing another hat today. I can't get enough! This find was from Primark. It had little feathers tucked in the brim which I swiftly pulled out after purchasing as I didn't like the colours. The hat was priced at £5 but when I got to the till it was only £1, little things like that really make my day!
