Denim Shirt

how to wear a denim shirt, denim shirt and black skirt


Denim Shirt Topshop / Jewellery 

You may have noticed from most of my outfit posts that I am obsessed with a pretty collars and neck ties. There are lots of blouses with neck ties in high street shops at the moment – and I WANT THEM ALL!

But for something quirky and different, how about this, from our fellow indie retailer Hero&Cape?  When they asked me to collaborate with them and design a T-Shirt for their opening collection, I jumped at the chance!

Instead of illustrating a graphic for it, we came up with a clean design that was inspired by the style that I’m really in to at the moment. A cute Peter Pan collar graphic and a neck tie! On a T-Shirt! The T-shirt comes with a black bow neck tie brooch that I made for Hero & Cape. I can’t wait to get the T-Shirt, and I hope to collaborate with them again in the future!

    think I may give in and buy your bow collar brooch and get lots of plain lacey shirts like the ones we saw πŸ™‚ looking fab as ever girl!

    I'm loving this style at the moment too! You look great! The tee is so cute as well! I'm excited to see the new things in your shop too! xx
