Woohoo! This is the first outfit post I have done this year and I have (sort of) forgotten how to ~pose~ for photos! Then I remembered that I don’t actually pose; When I’m taking outfit photos, I either stand there like a plank of wood, or move about like I’ve got ants in my pants! There’s no in-between!
Sheinside is a brand that I have seen do the rounds on blogs for a while now. Everytime I see the brand name, I always wonder how it is pronounced. Is it She-inside, or Shein-side? They are owned by the Shein Group Ltd so my brain tells me it’s the latter, but I’ve heard YouTubers prounounce it SheInside, so that’s what I’ll go with!
I spotted this black and white stripy tunic
(which, confusingly, is listed on their website as a ‘long sleeved tshirt’) but as you can see, it isn’t long sleeved, and it’s not quite the traditional t-shirt. I chose to wear this as a tunic or a smock dress (petite girls fave type of dresses because it makes us look taller. And it saves the hassle of having to alter the hem!) but this is how it is styled on the model too, she’s wearing it as a dress. The best thing about these types of websites is obviously how cheap the clothes are, and how much choice there is but the sizes can come up quite small. However, something they are really good at is stating the measurements of each and every garment, including the length – and I strongly recommend checking the measurements before you place an order with Sheinside!! None of my favourite UK fashion retailers (Topshop, Miss Selfridge, and ASOS) detail the measurements and that kind of annoys me. What’s a short girl to do!
To add a bit of fun to the monochrome, I wore my pineapple necklace
(only the best thing everrrr!). It’s made of porcelain and the length of the chain is just right. Any longer and the porcelain pendant will end up knocking in to things. Don’t want that bad boy to get damaged or worse, completely smashed! If you like quirky things, check out Ohh Deer
, I guarantee you’ll be on their website for hours!
