OOTD T-shirts

Just two recent outfits…

I wore my new pink M&S top with M&S treggings and sparkly Converse to see Dave Chappelle at the Hammersmith Apollo last week. We were way further forward than I thought we’d be and I have never been so grateful for a lack of audience participation in my life! I think I am going to make an effort to sit near the back at comedy shows in the future… It didn’t help that my sister was wearing an even brighter top (it was neon and actually glowed under the lights) – we have never felt so vulnerable! Having said that, our cheeks hurt for hours afterwards so definitely a good show!

The top is super flowy and comfortable and has a funky pleated back, which adds interest and makes it just smart enough for work:

M&S

I’m not sure how flattering it actually is- I’m worried that it creates a slight hump-back/maternity effect- but I think that’s mostly just in photos, it’s fine in motion. And I couldn’t resist the colour!

Necklace: Sublime; ring from Monastiraki last year; bracelets are various ones ones I have accumulated over the years, I think the grey circle one is by Elle Amber.

The top kind of speaks for itself… how could I not buy it?! Anything that combines Disney with Beyoncé is alright by me! I am obsessed with Primark t-shirts actually, they are pretty much all I buy these days- I love the captions, the material and the shape. Although I can’t wait for them to get over their “half rolled up sleeves” phase.

I wore this outfit to go for dinner yesterday. The skirt is Primark, and the trainers are New Balance (410 Sonic) from Asos.

If you had told me even a year ago that I would be wearing trainers to dinner, I would have laughed in your face. (Admittedly, we only went to the local kebab place, I wouldn’t have worn them had we been going anywhere nicer.) But as I get older, I am rapidly losing tolerance for anything less than super-comfiness (another thing I never believed I’d say until recently) and so I bought these with a view to mostly just wearing them to and from work. However, what with seeing so many people (primarily bloggers) making trainers into a ‘look’, I have been venturing out in them more and more. It took me ages to find ones that I liked, as I wanted really clean, uncluttered ones that didn’t make my feet look enormous (I have realised that whenever I think a woman looks nice in trainers, it is almost always because her feet are tiny and dainty- aka my life dream) but I am really happy with these ones.

Still not as cool as my sparkly Converse though!

I don’t know what it is but I reeaaally want these shoes….. I KNOW that I will never wear them, I literally can not think of a single occasion where these shoes would be the right shoe for me, but they’re just. so. funky!

I may have to content myself with these instead…

(They’re cheaper too. And I might actually be able to walk in them.

But I’m still bummed! ;-p)

Both shoes are from Asos.

Hope you’re having a great week!

Kids: shopping online at work is BAD.  Stay in school.

 It’s nearly over!

I bought this top for the 2002 World Cup. It so perfectly encapsulated (and still does) my feelings on the subject. I used to wear it with a white trouser suit and red and white shell toes ‘coz that’s just how I rolled when I was 15….

I can never express in words how grateful I am that I was the last generation of teenagers to exist in a pre-camera phone world!

*phew*

On Saturday, I went to a bbq in Brighton. Naturally, having been beautifully hot all week, it was cold and rainy all weekend. I wore:

Floral jacket: Bershka

WTF tee: Express, in NY

Treggings: M&S

Plimsolls that need a wash: Next

Wtf,jacket

 Earrings: Topshop

Greek name necklace: gift from my parents in Athens

Mermaid tears necklace: Tally Weijl in Lisbon

Tennis bracelets: Swarovski

Rings: assorted, mostly vintage

Of course, I had my coat and scarf on all day, so the effect was somewhat ruined.

Oh well, at least there were burgers.

On Sunday, I was back in London for my friend’s British/tennis themed party to celebrate both her recent citizenship and the Wimbledon men’s final. She forced us to play tennis (something I haven’t done since I was at school. You’ll be pleased to know that my fear of flying balls and anything involving hand to eye coordination remains intact).

I wore:

Black and white dress: H&M

Trainers: Nike

Wristband: bought at Wimbledon when I went last week

Clutch: Amazon, stolen from my sister-in-law for the occasion

Unrealistic tennis posing: model’s own

Oh well, at least there was Pimms!
