I know that technically speaking jeans on a Friday in the office mean “Dress Down Friday”, but for those that know me, jeans are not something I wear generally as I never really feel that comfortable, and therefore, to me this is dressing up! You will also note that I haven’t just worn jeans and a t-shirt….. As if I would leave it at that!
Jacket – Old (from Evans Seven Range – gives you an idea how old!) Size 24
Ankle Grazer Jeans –Evans (2011/2012) Size 20
Top – Taking Shape (available here at £25.00) Size L (UK22) I LOVE THIS TOP
Scarf – Ebay
I have been very surprised at how much I have really loved wearing this outfit today, I can see it becoming one of my many faves!
As the top is the only item that is currently available to purchase, I can tell you that I was very surprised at, again, how flattering it is, and it shows off my curves. The quality of the material is, as with all the Taking Shape items I have had the privilege to experience to date, of an extremely high quality, consisting of a thicker than your normal Tee material. If you like the look of it, check it out because you would not be disappointed!
