ONE ON ONE



There are few items that consistently remain as iconic as a strappy black dress. Pieces such as a classic white shirt and a pair of denim jeans for example. A personal paradigm of late, one I've continuously seen myself favouring more and more of. Regardless of hue, blue denim bottoms and a relaxed fit type shirt have become my exclusive signature staple. 

But when it comes to a white shirt, acquiring "the one" can prove to be quite challenging for me. Inconsistent sizing plays a big part, perfect in one section, far too tight in another. Or perhaps my issues lie within my broad shoulders, feeling as though many styles seem to enhance this self-perceived flaw rather than detract. It is a piece I find myself either in anticipation (which is more on the rare side) or in sheer dread when window slash online shopping as such difficulties immediately come to mind. 

That said the highlight towards pyjama type shirts has been a godsend for me. A most flattering and effortless design; one that no longer leaves me filled with trepidation over such purchases. Feathery light and opaque enough for a faint glimpse of darker undergarments this ASOS shirt has metaphorically swooped me off my feet. Much like the stages of a newly paired romantic coupling I've been searching for ways for us to remain coupled. Much like these baby blue jeans from Rosegal, a modern take on a classic with overly slashed knees, have become firm favourites. A pair I regretfully forgot to pack on my latest sojourn overseas to Portugal (more to come) and a pair I would have perpetually lived in during those two weeks abroad thanks to blissfully mild temperatures.

    1. Great to hear from you again, Sonia! Your trip must've been super awesome:) I totally know what you mean. So hard to sort through tons of pics. The only reason I had to do mine quickly is that I use the blog to update relatives and they wanted pics:) And is that show good? I'm watching Who Are You right now.

  21. A crisp white shirt is such a fashion classic and staple. You chose a fantastic one and your styling is totally effortless and on point. I don't personally own a white shirt or anything white clothing because the color white somehow always instantly turns me into a dirt magnet ;p

  22. That crisp white shirt looks fantastic on those fab jeans! You look so comfy!

  38. I think a quality white shirt is always a good choice in a woman's wardrobe. I personally used to be obsessed with different styles of white blouses. A simple look with a pyjama-style shirt can be the most stylish sometimes.

  40. Super cute outfit!! I ordered a ton of stuff from ASOS for my vacation, but a lot of the stuff I ended up returning. I always find them to be so hit or miss. But clearly I still continue to shop with them, so I must like it! Hope you had a great trip to Portugal! Just read your story about your flight home lol. That is so crappy and a million times worse than my story haha. Were you alone?? That would be even more difficult to try and figure everything out by yourself, especially when everything is Chinese (lawd). Anyway, I will be looking forward to some Portugal posts soon! Eeeee! ;)

  41. Glad to see you've found that piece - I've had a white blouse/shirt on my list for years and still haven't found one! I don't like gaping at the bust which is a problem for me.

That was my work look on Wednesday too by the way. Your shirt is cute buy your jeans though? Even cuter! I'd live in them too if they were mine. Lovely bag!

  86. It's so difficult finding the perfect white button down that fits well without making me look like a waiter or like I'm part of an orchestra. This one looks so nice, and I like how it's so easy to style in many different ways. I'm really digging how minimalist trends are coming back and how it's easy to just pair a few basics together to get a look that just works.
