pintuck and pleats

Two outfit posts within nearly a week of each other? What’s happening with the world? Remember the skirt I made? Here I am wearing it (well duh). See this white shirt? On the surface it looks like it could be the perfect white shirt. But looks can be deceiving. It’s actually a long shirt-dress type arrangement. Which is a bummer because this means it looks stupid with jeans. And the sleeves are fake sleeves. Kind of. They don’t go down to the wrist. I feel cheated. I do like the pintuck detail though. Surprisingly enough the shirt is from Temt. I bought it ages ago and then forgot about it. And found it again today. I love it when stuff like that happens.

    I love outfit posts and the skirt is amazing. I think I'd like it if one could see the end of the shirt under the skirt – but that's just me.

    I love this outfit, it's so simple and the colors are just so lovely. I know what you mean, I have heaps of clothes just stocking up in my wardrobe with still tags amongst them, until the day where they pop up in the nick of time when your struggling to find something to wear πŸ™‚

    the skirt is great! I wonder what the detail is near the hem? is it ruffles or layers or just lines?

    cute shirt, bet it was cheap too huh?

    @everyone: Thanks for the lovely comments.

    @SabinePsynopis: haha, just picture it like a reeaaallly long shirt.

    @Stace: Hi! They are pleats. Horizontal pleats. So basically layers that fold over each other. HTH.

    @avalonne: Thank you so much! I'm following your blog now too. Love it!

    @christine: Thanks! I'm thinking of setting up an etsy shop so you might just be able to get your hands on one yet! haha
