Easy to wear Shirt Dress

When it comes to clothes shopping, do you ever find that the items that you instantly fall in love with are the ones that barely get worn in your wardrobe? Then the items which you buy which you like (maybe not love), are the ones which you end up wearing ALL THE TIME?! This is how I felt with this In the Style paisley shirt dress. I picked it because I find shirt dresses easy to wear (knowing that I will probably have to wear shorts underneath them, but I accept that). Never did I know that this was going to be one of my favourite items of clothing this summer! I have worn it loads and I'm sure it will be coming with me on holiday. For me it is too short for an actual dress so shorts are needed whenever I wear this, but no one needs to know! This item has definitely been a grower but I love it to bits now.

There are so many ways to wear it though! Over a bikini, or with black jeans to smarten it up, or in this case I wanted to wear it with my Missguided Harness Bralet. I would never be able to wear this bralet on it's own because it is a tad too small on the cup area but I love wearing it underneath shirts. There are so many styles around but I picked this one mainly for it's strappy detail and the subtle lace. It's tempting to get it in the cream also, since it's only £18. 

I wanted to keep this outfit really casual and I have genuinely worn this whole outfit top to bottom whilst going into Oxford for the day. For out and about I do like to keep the footwear comfy and long lasting. These Adidas Gazelle trainers are so worth the price! These are my go to trainers for long days out and I have never gained a blister form wearing these. They have released loads of lush summer colours and I so tempted to buy the mint or pale pink ones but I know they won't get as much wear. I just know that black goes with everything. Massive thumbs up. 

I added some grey accessories to give the look some variation and its very rare for me to wear top to bottom black anyways! The grey bag from Lamoda looks more expensive that its price tag and its a nice quality too. I love the chain strap and it's big enough to fit my purse, phone and a couple bits of make up. It's perfect for a going out bag, or when you don't need to carry many items when out and about.
