Ivory and Khaki

Jacket | New Look (teens section)
Shirt | Primark
Belt | Primark (came with some trousers!)
Skirt | Matalan (teens section)
Boots | Dr Martens

   This is the studded koala print shirt I got from Primark. I have to say I'm a bit gutted with the fit - but I always seem to be with these tops. I swear all buttoned shirts and blouses are made for people with nice little boobs. Mine aren't that big really but I find that the buttons over my boobs gape (definitely not a shirt to wear with just a bra underneath!) even with the slightest movement of my arms. I picked up a 14 today to try too, but still, the gape-age continues. It also hangs rather unflatteringly too from my boobs (tent-look, yay!), unless I tuck it into something. I do really love the print though, so I'm still deciding whether to return it or not. What do you guys think?

   I should also add that I have never worn so much ivory / cream / off white shades together like this in my life. The fabrics are quite girly too - lace and chiffon - it would just feel far too girly and delicate for me of it's teamed it with a pair of flats! So I've added the right amount of grungy-ness with the jacket and boots to make it Robyn-ish (in my little head).

A very very quick, minuscule reminder that I have a Facebook page for le blog now - so click here to go to the Robyn Mayday  Facebook page, if you liked it you'd make me more delighted than my cat is when she's given a malteeser.  

   PS.    Oh Blogger, how you surprise me in the most cruel ways. Basically I'd already written this post yesterday, but Blogger decided to erase everything I wrote in the draft today. Brilliant! So from now on I'm saving every post in a Word file until I publish it! Sort it out Google nerds.

  2. Although the shirt looks so cute and appears to fit well I'd say return it if you're not 100% comfortable. If you're not going to wear i then the money is better spent on something else. Such a great look - I'm really loving this style of jacket x

  11. You look great! :)

    Really love how you've teamed the jacket and chunky boots with the more feminine blouse & skirt. It's a look I really want to try - definitely need to invest in one of these "camo" style jackets first!
