Today’s outfit was a fun exercise. Last night after staring blankly into my wardrobe I asked The Man to choose a piece that I would then build an outfit around. He chose this shirt (which come to think of it is mustard!) and I went from there.

I had noticed the similarity in the print on these 2 pieces when they were both drying on the line a few weeks back and filed the potential combination in the back of my mind. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to give it a whirl.

There are a lot of my favourite elements at play here. Layers, pattern mixing, visible slip. I also like the strong shoulder that has come together here. The length of the dress sleeves paired with the shape underneath gives it a surprisingly structured silhouette.

Best of all, He loved what I did with it. We’ll definitely do it again, it was a lot of fun. Give it a try, I’d love to hear how you went.

Shirt: Thrifted
