Don't ever doubt how I felt, about you.

- Searching for Sugarman (2012).


50 Shades of... Green?

Okay, I lied. It's actually only three shades of green, but I liked the tagline anyway.

Today's post is about this panther print shirt from Ever Ours, I've been looking a while for a shirt just like this, but not from the high street. I find all to often I'm wearing the same shirt as that girl over there... who tends to look better in it than I do. Great.

The panther print is in a brown/khaki shade and black, and I decided I wanted to team it with green rather than my usual go-to black jeans and this is what I came up with:

shirt: ever ours     belt: river island     skirt: laura ashley (charity shop)     
boots: asda     knobbly knees: aye...

This skirt is a dream, I love the deep green shade and I feel very womanly, although it used to 'caress the curves' (oooh!) now it squeezes the fat. Ugh, diet you are staring again on Monday.

skirt: river island     hat: charity shop

Ooh look at that! A blogger in a bowler! I love this maxi skirt, and its thick jersey material works in every season.

skirt: boohoo.com     bag: primark     shoes: everything5pounds.com     bow: crown&glory

This look is very much 'schoolgirl' what with the mini satchel, plaited hair and those shoes. But I love those shoes. Unfortunately I don't think this shade of green does much for my skin tone and the cut isn't all that flattering.

What do you think?

How would you wear this shirt?

ps. the title of this post is from a Sixto Rodriguez song, from the aptly named 'Searching for Sugarman' - my absolute top film of 2012. Please, check it out! It's amazing!

  5. Thank you for sharing that online store. Like you I do not like seeing people in the street wearing the same clothes as me (especially if they do look better!) I've already seen a couple of bits I like on it :)

    My first outfit is my fav :) I love that skirt, what a beautiful colour.
