parisian shirt.



Hello! Sorry I've been so absent from the online world lately - Doug came to visit, then I got flu, then my girls came to stay, so I've been up to my eyeballs. 

Yesterday, whilest paralysed by anxiety (I start volunteering this week, a little late due to the flu, and I'm really really nervous about it) I decided to do something productive and alter a couple of shirts I got while in Paris last summer


I was attracted to this one's collar - or lack-of - and the extra foldy bits, however it had long sleeves that did absolutely nothing for me. I lopped them off, hemmed the edges and voila! A very versatile new shirt! I'm going to wear it to the office today with this massive jumper over the top, because it's bloomin' freezing again. Great.

  5. Great altering, it suits you so well. I must say your boots are lovely too.

    Where is it you volunteer? I volunteered last June at a charity shop and I was nervous then, but I'm naturally a nervous person and all things were running through my head. Through that I managed to get a paid job for a while so I always think the nerves will get better :) I still haven't caught a train purely by myself due to nerves, that's a goal for the year ha.

  6. You look gorgeous, your hair looks really lovely and that shirt is super cute. Paris is great for finds like that. I hope you're feeling better it sucks how much anxiety can affect you. I'm sure your volunteering will go just fine and you'll love it. It's such a worthwhile thing

  14. I do this to almost all my shirts (usually because they are stolen from my boyfriend's wardrobe and are massive).

    You look fab :)

  15. Gorgeous shirt - good find, and so lucky you can look at these things and go 'I can do that to it then it will be perfect', I really need to dig my sewing machine out and start to practise a bit! Hope the volunteering goes well, good luck!
