Day 18 – Baby blue brooch

Today I’ve gone for a mint green shirt that I bought about a month ago and haven’t worn. I have millions of silky shirts in pastel colours and they’re always really cheap in charity shops – but of course I never get round to wearing them all!

I love the shirt collar outside of jumper look, so today was no exception. For a bit of variety I added his green brooch instead of jewellery, which kept the embroidery on the sweater from being blocked by a big necklace. I did have the shirt tucked in at first but I actually really like the mint poking out the bottom, it gives the outfit a more casual feel.

Let me know what you think, and if this series has helped you get rid of any items that’ve been cluttering your wardrobe for ages. I’m building up quite a big pile now of stuff that’s going to the Find Me charity shop so I’ll do a mega post at the end of the month….

    Absolutely love this one too!! So classy and put together. Wearing a brooch on your collar is such a great idea. I was at an auction and I bought like two dozen brooches. Will have to try this look!

      Yeah I love adding brooches to things. Such a modern way to do it compared to putting it on a pocket.

    This outfit is so polished, no one would ever believe it’s all from charity shops! I find your posts very inspirational, thank you 🙂
