I picked this shirt up a while ago when I was in Blenheim staying with some family. I went to the Savemart there and bought this. Out of the whole of Savemart, which is a giant warehouse full of second hand clothing this is all I bought! It cost me $9.00 and is in pretty good condition. As for check shirts I am quite fond of them but I am extremely picky with what ones I buy. When shopping I try and look for ones with a limited colour pallet – so that it’s relatively easy to wear with other garments and I also like for them to be fitted. I see so many that honestly look like tents. They are huuuuge!
This shirt fits me pretty well, the only thing is that’s it’s a tiny bit too short, you can’t really tell because I am wearing a high waist skirt, but with jeans it doesn’t look so great! Also with this shirt I really love how the buttons do up all the way to the collar, in my opinion it looks cute. But then again I might have a warped perception of what’s ‘cute’. As for the outfit, I am wearing my pewter flats, $9.00 from save mart, Recycle boutique cardi $17.00, cotton skirt $10.00 and the necklace and bangles are from my mum! For jewellery there is nothing better than having a rummage through a relative’s jewellery box. I have acquired some great stuff from my mum and gran!
