Regular readers will know that I’m a big fan of the-Bias-Cut.com (I even modelled for the website a couple of years ago). I’ve bought some of my favourite items of clothing from this fabulous online boutique, so I can’t resist treating myself to something when there’s a sale on. I absolutely love animal print and believe you can never have too much! This Scotch & Soda Safari shirt is a great addition to my wardrobe because I can also wear it as a jacket (so I guess you could call it a “shacket”).
The belt gives it structure and defines the waist; to my relief it doesn’t sit too high for my long torso. The popper fastenings are strong and secure so there’s no chance of them coming undone. I also love the positioning of the pockets; the side pockets are on an angle and also close with popper fastenings. It’s such a versatile piece and I can’t wait to style it lots of different ways. Teaming this Scotch & Soda Safari shirt and jeans with ankle boots creates a smart casual look…an outfit I might wear for shopping, going out for lunch and all those other activities that we’ve been denied recently. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can do those things again.
To keep the colour palette simple I’ve added a brown shoulder bag and gold jewellery. I bought the earrings on sale at Anthropologie recently – they’re still available here reduced even more to just £11!
SHOP THE LOOK
Isobel joined me in her own “shacket” and a skort we bought on eBay for just a few pounds. I’d quite like a skort for myself, albeit a longer one. You don’t see many of them for adults, and when you do they’re usually reserved for sporting activities. This line of thought may spark a new eBay search!
