Topshop Striped Reworked Shirt With FRAME Le Boot Jeans
I named this post ‘Straight Out Of Bed’ because numerous people have commented how this Topshop Striped Reworked Shirt actually looks like a pyjama top. The more I looked at it and after seeing the photos we shot, I can see what they were saying and I do think it looks like a funky piece of sleepwear, but one that’s actually wearable outside! I actually got this shirt many months ago back in March and never showcased it on my fashion blog as I wasn’t sure how to best wear it, since it has an open back, but because I found it so beautiful and flattering to my body shape (surprisingly!) I had to keep it and figure out a way to wear it! So, a few weeks ago, that’s when I came up with this outfit here and I think it shows it off perfectly!
I paired my Topshop Striped Reworked Shirt with my FRAME Le Boot Jeans because I wanted something different to the usual skinny jeans that I wear. The off the one shoulder appearance and the uneven hemline (which looks like you buttoned it up incorrectly), coupled with the little fabric loops on the upper arms, and the contrasting colour, is really unique and I haven’t seen a top like it before! A cropped bootcut seemed like the ideal balance to even out the extra fabric on top and keep everything even. Plus, the fit of these is really nice and I adore the wash, so I thought it was the best pairing I could make. The blue denim suits the burgundy and navy on the shirt in a way that’s so complementary, and then adding in my Carvela Gorki Velvet Ankle Boots just tied that up nicely. The sapphire blue velvet is almost along the lines of the navy on the shirt, so everything matches.
As I mentioned though, this shirt does have an open back because of the split up the middle, so I decided I would be more comfortable if something was covering my back, which is why I went with my Zac Posen Eartha Reversible Backpack in Cream for my accessories. It’s big enough to cover, but it’s pretty and stylish enough to look chic, rather than like a casual backpack – it’s smart and classy instead, which is perfect. I then added in my RADO Open Heart Skeleton Watch as the rose gold and silver complemented the hardware and tones of the ensemble. You haven’t seen this watch yet as I bought it for my birthday (on finance from Earnest Jones here) and am completely in love with it. I love that you can see straight through to the inside! It was quite pricey, but not as pricey as the BVLGARI LVCEA Watch that I own. I will be doing a review on it next month though for you, but for now you can see it here!
In terms of the location, there’s always so many beautiful streets in the City of Bath, and this is one that we frequent quite often as it’s usually quiet (it’s a dead end) and it means we don’t have to keep waiting for people to move out of the shot. It’s ideal really and the fields behind it just add a nice pop of yellow and green to the red and blue that I was already wearing, which makes the photos all the more cheerful. But anyway, in terms of the outfit, I really hope you like it! I’d love to know what you think of the shirt though, is it something you would wear? Comment and let me know! Plus, happy Friday!
