As promised last week, I’m showing you the third shirt from Salamander Shirts, and it’s a beauty! This black and white cat print cotton shirt instantly appealed to me…I’ve always adored cats. I love all cat prints, but particularly black and white ones because my Henry is a handsome tuxedo cat (black with white paws, bib and whiskers).
I really felt the need to boost my mood with some bright colour, and black, white and red is one of my favourite combinations. This fabulous cat print cotton shirt has the same great design features as the duck print shirt: contrasting polka dot fabric, anti-gape button design and double back yoke. The shirt has a relaxed fit with no darts, but it is very slightly shaped for a flattering look. Another nice touch is the red on the top button, which seems to be more noticeable when teamed with the red trousers and jacket.
I’ve thrown in a bit of pattern mixing with this tartan jacket. I bought it on eBay a couple of years ago, but when it arrived it looked different from the photos. It’s not as thick as I was hoping so I packed it away and forgot about it. I rediscovered it when I was putting my Summer clothes away and was pleased to finally wear it.
These red trousers are really old – on a pay-per-wear basis they must be one of the best investments I’ve ever made! I like to wear these red ankle boots with them for a leg-lengthening effect. There’s no such thing as too much red so I topped off the outfit with a co-ordinating wide brim hat.
I continued the cat theme with my velvet cat bag, which you’ve seen many times before – another very useful purchase! Speaking of which, a great quality shirt will always be a good investment and you won’t find better value for money than Salamander Shirts. I’m really fussy about cotton shirts because some can feel too stiff and don’t tuck in well, but these are so comfortable against the skin.
