SS17: Off-the-shoulder Shirt and Embroidered Bag

Hey everyone! Here today with an other #OOTD. Today is a smart-casual featuring a new way to wear you plain white shirt. This is a really nice spring outfit featuring some key current trends: off the shoulder and embroidery. All outfit details at the bottom.

The shirt is from Mango and is a plain white shirt which I bought slightly oversized. To create this look I buttoned it just halfway or so and wore it off the shoulders, an on-trend way to make a classic white shirt not-so-classic. Statement shirts are having a moment, whether it be ruffles, flared sleeves or something crazier like this one from Topshop which is deffo on my wishlist.

The bag is one of Accessorize's reversible bags but this side is definitely the prettiest! I love love love embroidered anything so when I saw this bag I needed it straight away. I liked it because its kind of girly but also quite cool at the same time. The inside is navy and white nautical stripes so I'll be featuring that in an outfit sometime soon too!

With the jeans I've gone for these stone wash mom jeans. I wear these soooo much theyre super comfy. The shoes are these little block heels in a kind of beigey cream nude colour to match the bag.

I took all the strength I had not to put on a choker this morning, since I'm a total choker addict. The 90s revival is very 2016, and 2017 is looking to the 80s as it's decade of choice - hence the big earrings and shoulders we're seeing everywhere. I've gone for medium hoops and a statement necklace with hints of marble in the finish to accentuate the re-worked neckline.

It's not sunny at all but I wore sunglasses anyway just because they're new and I wanted to. I liked the mirrored effect with the clean and crisp look of the white shirt.

I actually had to get the iron out for this shirt (mum will die of shock when she reads this) but I love how the outfit turned out. Thanks for reading xxxxxx
