The white shirt

After my blogging break I've managed to come back with not just two whole posts so far this week, but my first outfit post in aaaages as well. I kind of went off outfit posts recently. A combination of feeling a bit too old and boring for them compared with all the young whippersnapper bloggers out there, not finding the right spot in my new neighbourhood and no new clothes meant I just haven't been in the mood.

I am still not 100% comfortable doing them again - I only managed to find one full length photo I was happy with in the million or so I took to get these (baby steps) but it is definitely something I do want to keep doing every now and again, even if this isn't strictly speaking a fashion blog any more.

Anyway, enough of that. The reason for this outfit post is the gloriously simple but perfect white shirt I am wearing which was sent to me for review by TM Lewin. When I think TM Lewin I immediately think tailoring, and not without cause. This shirt fits so perfectly. It has a longer line than most shirts, so it stays properly tucked in, and the shape is perfectly cut in the bust area. Normally I have to size up when I wear shirts, as they tend to gape, but I had no such issues with this one. It's the perfect addition to my slowly growing grown up wardrobe.

I agree, I feel very old, always nice to give it a whirl once in a while. Liking the patterned shirt with the plain white shirt.

You wore it nicely! I'm still trying to work out how to wear my white shirts without it looking like a school uniform, haha.
