2011 seems to be the year I let go of a lot of my old fashion rules. It's been the year I started wearing trousers again after almost seven years solid in skirts and dresses... which scared me more than I thought it would, honestly.
It's also been the year I finally decided to give blonde a shot after always being convinced it wouldn't suit me - and, what do you know? It does!
It even appears to be the year I embrace yellow, aka my LEAST favourite colour: I just bought this yellow shirt at New Look this week! (I'm still reeling over this, seriously.)
I guess double denim is just the latest in a long line of rules to be broken! I've never done it before but it seems easier - aka less horrifying - in grey, doesn't it?
And this vintage cowboy shirt is really perfect: oversized in just the right way, seriously soft and full of cute deails I adore, like star studs on the back and patterned metal collar tips.
I've teamed it with my new favourite accessories: an oversized clutch (really a clipboard case, haha!) and the perfect suede Chelsea boots, both in my favourite cranberry colour. Finished off with my Gogo Philip silver cross earrings that I've been reaching for a lot recently - sometimes just one, sometimes the pair!
