A/W Staples: The Check Shirt

19th October 2014

I think this is the first time I can say I truly am super happy with the way these photos turned out. As my brother’s back at university and I wanted to blog so badly, I’ve officially joined the “my-boyfriend-is-my-photographer” club; and I think he’s done a pretty darn good job. Thank you Adam! (:

I wanted to start something new on my blog since it was becoming pretty monotonous, and as Autumn has well and truly smacked us in the face, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you my A/W staple pieces for this year, starting with the checked shirt (or plaid/tartan, whatever tickles your fancy)!

I really do have an issue with the tartan print. I have it in leggings, scarves, shirts, tops… you name it. Everything I point out in the shops is almost always tartan, ask Adam – He thinks it’s hilarious how obsessed I am! It’s got to the point where I’ve even got Isla involved!

In saying that, I think my favourite has to be in the form of the shirt. It’s incredibly versatile; buttoned right up, or open with a black crop underneath or even your simple day to day grey t-shirt. I think it looks great tied up around your waist too, and I wish I looked good doing that, but it’s just not my style. I’m all about simple, which is exactly why I love this outfit. I don’t think anything else looks better than just chucking on a check shirt with a simple pair of jeans and some boots (Next have some PERFECT ankle boots at the moment, go check them out).

I felt like this outfit just screamed laidback but with a hint of effort; it was perfect for our day strolling around town, and would be great for a quick lunch with friends too. It’s 100% one of my go-to pieces for this year and I don’t think that’s going to be changing anytime soon.

What do you think?

  • I’m the same with checked shirts, I just can’t get enough! I have pink ones, red ones, green ones, purple ones, they just add to effortless style and they’re just so easy in the mornings when you’re not sure what to chuck on! I absolutely love big, massive ones too that can be thrown on over leggings! H&M do great long ones 🙂
    I shall have to check the boots at Next out! Never thought of looking at theirs before, so thank you 🙂
