Friday Dress Down OOTD

At last! I've been wanting to wear this outfit for a while, however it's been really warm lately here and the thought of wearing jeans in an office with no air conditioning was just a big no-no! We're talking all kinds of sweating (sorry!)

I'd spotted this outfit about three months in a magazine and had made a mental note to recreate it.  I'd been searching for the perfect shirt for months though. Something loose and made of cotton with the ability to not feel too 'crispy' if that makes any kind of sense?! I stumbled across this by accident in Topshop and it's perfect and ticking all my boxes! (FYI I also bought it in blue!) It's ridiculously soft and comfortable to wear and when the sleeves are rolled up I still have the ability to move my arms!  It's nice and baggy and looks great 'shame tucked' (we can thank Laura for introducing the world to this concept!).  I love it paired with pale denim. 

The belt is old and falling apart, I think I got it from Mango a few years ago in the sale.  It goes perfectly with the sandals - Zara from a few years ago. 

My jeans are Paige but could be easily replicated with something cheaper to be honest.  I followed the crowd and bought them because I'd spotted a few celebs wearing them - because I'm sad like that! ha! Everytime I wear them the large hole amuses my other half, but I don't care - I love them :) I really like how you can pair them with semi smart things for a dressed up look with bit of edginess. 

Can you keep a secret? I swapped the heels for Birkenstocks a little bit later on in the day! My feet were hurting - BIG time.  Side note - these are not comfortable sandals!
