Lets get shirty

I have to say I do love a good statement shirt. Looking though the contents of my over flowing wardrobe a lot of it is filled tops, mainly of the shirt genre. And whatever item I did find most of it was also from River Island. It's shocking how much of their stuff I own ( I'd say it's about 75% of my wardrobe!).
Shirt
Leggings
Shoes
Bag
So combining my two loves, I couldn't resist this stunning navy pin striped shirt I saw in the shop the other day. It almost has a kind of sailor/navy feel to it. The hint of maroon stripe in there also made me love this even more. When you try an item on sometimes do you just look at yourself in the mirror and go, this is just me? Well this is the moment I had( I know you probably all think I'm crazy!) but I get that quite a lot when I'm shopping in River Island. So whilst I stayed firmly in my comfort zone on my top half, I thought why not branch out on the bottom half, try something new! I own about a million pair of jeans and I really hate the fit of leggings so I found the in between! Even thought the actual product is called a legging I think they should have a different name! But anyway they do have the feel of a legging but the thickness of a jean. They are great! And instead of having a zip down then front it's at the back so it's hidden! I recommend them for those of you who fancy a change from jeans and they are a bargain at £25. Sorry if you didn't already guess yes they are from River Island.
In fact everything I'm wearing in today's post is! I paired this outfit with my trusty silver sandals and wait for it my metallic silver FRINGE bag!! I mean that is just everything I love in one item. It's perfect for dressing up any outfit. And it's a limited edition piece, so get your hands on it quick if you want it! I have linked all the items in this post under the top photo, if you fancy making a cheeky purchase.
