In the navy

The sole reason I'm making a whole post out of this outfit is so I can use that pun in the title. I am so funny. Anyway, I picked up this striped shirt (and another) at UNIQLO while I was in London, despite the fact that I apparently already own too many striped shirts. I don't think you can own too many striped things (still debating with myself as to whether this applies to polkadots too). If you enjoy stripes as well you will probably enjoy this tumblr (look at this pile of shirts!).



Once again my favourite skirt and shoes of the moment. The cut of the shirt means it doesn't tuck in well, though.

I saw The Hunger Games on Thursday and was really good! Not as good as the book, but movies never really are. It was a solid adaptation, but I think you'd get more out of it by reading the novel first.

Obligatory I can't believe it's almost April comment. This year is going to fly by. I'm feeling a bit happier at being back at university now... I definitely had a massive bout of post-summer blues but I think I've recovered. Anyway, Easter break is right around the corner (I only get a week off though, I'm mad about that!).

  2. haha that tumblr is amazing. i just looked through my closet and realized that I don't have enough striped shirts. The thing is I can only were them around spring/summer. That gives me the perfect summer feeling, which is to be honest kind of weird.

  3. I was looking at these in UNIQLO in Westfield the other day, and I think if I did not already have my one from Jack Wills (http://www.rachelphipps.com/2012/03/spring-essentials-breton-tee.html), I would have picked them up!

  6. A WEEK OFF at Easter break? Are you kidding me?! You lucky, lucky girl! I only get the friday and monday off... so including the weekend that is just 4 days. (!!!)

    Anyhow, yay! I got the same shirt as you from Uniqlo! I, too, am a complete lunatic about stripes. Although polka dots are pretty much missing from my wardrobe...

    I really like the outfit, would definitely be something I would wear.

    I've neither read nor seen the Hunger Games but I'm certainly intrigued after all this fuss... x

  19. So crisp & classic. I love those boots on you. And I saw the Hunger Games as well, but all my friends have said that the book is far better.

  20. I remember when the striped shirts trend started a few ago, I kept thinking how when I was a kid, I had picked up a fashion magazine I wasn't supposed to from my aunts bathroom (I'm guessing it was Cosmo, since they kept telling me not. to. touch. *those*) and on one of the pages filled with "fashion advice", there was a square with stylish " " striped shirts, but the stripes were vertical, and the caption said something like "rock these stripes like they have in the runway-- but never horizontal, because that'll make you look wider, and gasp, fat!"

    Comes to show how much fashion changes so quickly!

    I wonder if vertical stripes will make a comeback.

    1. I never got into vertical stripes, and I suppose the horizontal stripes do make me look wider, but I love them so much I'm past caring, haha.

  21. I love, love, love your outfit! Striped tops are the best things ever. And oh gosh I know, no way is it April tomorrow! x
