Florals and chains

Shirt - H&M 
Jeans - River Island (old)
Chain - Accessorize
Watch - Michael Kors

I'm excited but also kind of nervous about this post in particular, it's my very first OOTD post. I had quite a few responses on Twitter and Instagram about this outfit, the shirt in particular so thought I would actually share it with you guys on my blog. The main feature is clearly the shirt and of course it would be.. it's gorgeous! I picked it up from H&M just last week. It was £19.99 but I had a £5 off voucher so in fact got it for £14.99 which is a bargain for a shirt! I first saw this online a while back but set my eyes aside (I'm meant to be saving money here!) Then when I stumbled into the shop with my voucher we met again... and I couldn't resist! Nothing else in H&M caught my eye so it was meant to be.

The shirt is crisp white then has a gorgeous floral pattern down both sides of the shirt and also over the shoulders. The floral colours include red, burgundy, purple, blue, pink, mint, beige and then lighter/darker tones of all of those colours, it really is amazing! I like my shirts to be a slightly longer length than sat my t-shirts or whatever and I found this one was a lovely length and slightly dipped at the back. I did my top button up, which is great as I find some shirts can be way too tight with the top button done up and I feel as if I can't breathe! But this one was a nice loose fitting. I then chucked my gold chain over the top so that from front view of the shirt it wasn't just plain white and gave it a bit more detailing.

I paired the shirt with black skinny jeans which you can mainly see in the first picture, but nothing exciting. I didn't want to take the eyes away from the shirt. Although I think it would look great with jeans, even high waisted jeans and tuck the shirt in, a skater skirt, wet look leggings, just anything simple to keep the shirt the main detailing of the outfit. I then just flung on my tan chelsea boots which I don't have a picture of unfortunately but they are just your normal chelsea boot, in tan and I purchased them in a Dorothy Perkins sale last year for around £20, bargain!! They are so easy to style and go with pretty much ANY outfit which is why I love them so much. Although they are slightly big so I find myself having to wear thick socks so they fit ;-) ha ha.

I think that just about rounds off my first OOTD post, PLEEEEEASE let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope I didn't ramble on toooo much :-) xo
