The Everyday Shoot: Linen shirt and denim skirt

You know I’ve never been much of a denim skirt fan24. In all my years, I honestly cannot remember the last time I owned one; if I ever did. I don’t quite know what my aversion to them has been for so long. But I’m glad I got over whatever was stopping me from wearing them. So, to explain why I’m telling you this and how this ties into the above outfit.

Read on below.

I was shopping in Zara for something completely different. I think I was grabbing something for a different shoot. While I’m walking through the busy store, two things hit me at the same time. The first is this lightly striped oversized linen shirt hanging off a stand is actually really cute. The second thought was how it would look amazing half tucked into a denim skirt. I have no idea what sparked this thought, or why it even popped into my head, but I knew I had to try it out. But Zara doesn’t really do denim skirts, so off I go to H&M who can always be trusted to have some good ones on sale.

And the end result is, I tried this outfit concept on about 20 minutes later in a H&M shop, a few doors down from the Zara and really loved it. I really wanted something akin to a luxurious bum bag to go with the outfit, but I didn’t have any and I didn’t know what brand would do a good one. So, when I came home, I tried using my Chloé Nile Minaudière as a waist-style belt. The last item for the outfit was a pair of espadrilles, which I have also never worn before. I just seem to be breaking so many unwritten personal style rules in one outfit here, I might as well go and break some more.

So, if you’d like to wear this outfit, here are some tips;

Rule 1: Make sure your shirt is long enough and that the side is cut open so you can tuck it into your skirt.

Rule 2: Go for a shorter length denim skirt, and one that has an A-line skirt. It shouldn’t sling to your legs otherwise the shirt underneath won’t look great.

Rule 3: If you’re going to use your cross-body bag as a waist bag, make sure you choose one with adjustable straps and loop the strap once under your flap. This will only work for flap-style bags.

Rule 4: The outfit is very casual, so go for casual shoes to match. I went for heeled espadrilles, which are great if you don’t want to wear flats, but still want your legs to have the nice shape from wearing heels.
