On Tuesday I travelled to Leicester for the Next blogging day – a fantastic experience which I’ll blog about in more detail in another post. I was lucky enough to meet some really amazing bloggers, some whose blogs I’ve been reading since I started out and others who I couldn’t wait to get to know better.
I get most of my outfit inspiration from real people so it was a treat to be surrounded by so many stylish ladies, and it was clear that one trend was a favourite. Kristabel, Jazmine, Jill and Lucy were all wearing one. When the Next designers showed us a few from their upcoming Spring 11 range, a collective ‘ooohhhh’ could be heard. The bloggers have spoken – sheer, oversized shirts (especially ones with pointy collars) are officially lovely.
Please excuse the weird orange glow on my face. It’s not badly applied bronzer, just the street light that was glaring down on me. Stupid dark mornings.

I bought this khaki shirt last summer but have never really got the hang of styling it. Loose, baggy silhouettes are my worst enemy, but belting this piece just ruins the romance. So I popped this buttoned-up cardigan on over the top to add shape (and tone down the sheerness… no one needs to see a bra at 9am) and teamed it with simple black skinnies and my new favourite shoes.
I really love this look and think the shirt (along with a few more in different colours that I plan on buying) will become a spring staple.
Who’s inspiring you today?
