I really wanted to get this post up last week, but unfortunately life got in the way. I then visited Donegal for a few days with the in-laws where I unwittingly entered a wifi and signal free zone. No internet does crazy things to people. Why can I not binge watch Rupaul’s Drag Race, aimlessly peruse blogs and social media and view countless random videos that provide no life sustenance whatsoever? I stepped into a time warp where Dee’s sister actually received her change in a shop through the use of a pneumatic tube system. I kid you not. There was no till.
As strange as it was with no internet, I did really relish the break and actually enjoyed talking to people rather than constantly look at my phone.
This post was shot with my lovely blogger pal Emily from Style me with love just outside her apartment by the docklands in Belfast. The perfect backdrop for local bloggers wanting a mix of old industrial texture and contemporary architecture.
I was luckily gifted this shirt from GANT as well as these Next oxblood ankle boots, which you may have already seen on my instagram and facebook. I teamed them with grey skinnies and my trusty ASOS satchel-esque handbag for a distinctly classic workwear outfit, perfect for a winter to spring transitional look.
I think a classic, crisp white shirt is so timeless and adds a bit of an androgenous, slightly masculine edge. This shirt in particular is made extremely well and the quality really stands out. The fabric is quite thick with a little bit of stretch in it and the fit is slim without being too restrictive. It’s pricey and will set you back £80, but with branded details and a little pop of blue gingham at the cuffs (I decided to roll mine up as I prefer a more casual look), I do feel that it is worth it if you want a workwear piece that will last.
I hope you all had a fab Easter holiday! Happy Friday. Xo
