OOTD: Sailor Chic
So ever since I changed a new pair of permanent contact lens, I get red swollen eyes often and my eyes became super sensitive to light. The doctor said I might be allergic to the contact lens material and advised me against wearing any contact lens for 4 - 6 weeks! Horror! I didn't really like my glasses to begin with and with a small nose bridge means they slide down pretty often but what can I do when eyes are so important in my life? You'll be seeing some outfit posts in the near future being totally specky and nerdy!
I breezed into New Look
one day and found 2 completely beautiful blouses that I am in love with. The first being this New Look Striped Chiffon Shirt
. I am a little obsessed with chiffon since last year and relished the chance of getting my hands on anything sheer because it works so well for hot weather and is breezy and easy. I also managed to think up at least 3 looks from this shirt so I didn't need to reconsider how frequent I will be wearing this! I paired it up with my lovely embellished necklace from Forever21 (shown here
) because I had this major brainwave to match pink and blue that day. I was kind of pleased with myself because this year, I am trying harder to experiment with more unusual colour combinations that I normally wouldn't think of and this
being one of my first. I'm really liking them!
If you need a short review on the shirt, I am a UK size 20 - 22 and size 18 fits me just fine with some room to spare and is even more beautiful in person than the website. I immediately thought of "Sailor Chic
" when I saw it and would completely wear this with my beloved skinny jeans or with shorts. It is completely versatile!
I will also be excited to show you my next new buy from New Look soon because it was one of the things that I grabbed, raced to the fitting room only just to make sure it fits (because they are all size 18) and then I knew
I had to have it.Striped Chiffon Shirt: New Look
