Outfit: Bright Eyes, Blue Denim



Shirt: H&M
Dress: Peacocks
Leggings: New Look
Belt: H&M
Boots: Rocket Dog

I've been after a denim shirt for ages but could never find one I liked and suited me, but I was in H&M last week and found this one which I quite like. Unfortunately I don't have the body shape for button-up shirts, forever jealous of people who can button up shirts all the way to the top and not look like a complete idiot! Me and shirts just do not get on. I can't even get the top few buttons to do up (thanks boobs) but I think I like it worn open like this anyway. I can see myself wearing it a lot with summer dresses instead of a cardigan, so I don't think it'll be one of those things I think is a good idea at the time then gets shoved to the back of the wardrobe and never worn again.

Boots, leggings, a black dress/skirt and some kind of cardigan or jumper seems to be my staple outfit at the moment, it's too cold to wear anything else more exciting! I'm well jel of everyone who's had snow over the last week, there hasn't been any in Edinburgh at all. I love the snow, as long as I don't have anything important to do! Despite the lack of snow, it's still rather chilly, my phone is telling me it's -1°C just now brrrr. I wore this outfit to go to class this morning, dragging myself out of my cosy bed was certainly a challenge!

I love these boots as they're really comfy and actually quite sensible/weatherproof but they're starting to fall apart because I wear them so much. I liked them so much that I bought an identical pair in black when I saw them in the Schuh sale a while ago, so I think I'll have to switch full-time to the black pair soon! Hopefully they'll last a few more months then I can forget about boots for a while and break out the sandals and flip flops.

What have you been wearing for the winter weather?

  1. I've been looking for a denim shirt too - may resort to ebay!

  2. be thankful for your boobz, really! i would love more on my chest so i didn't look like a teenage boy.

    i feel cheated that we don't have snow either! ermm... isn't this scotland?! oh well, i'd only moan about getting into work if we did have it. x

  3. This looks so comfy and warm. Love the shirt, I also don't get on well with buttoning shirts all the way to the top though, thanks to my chest! xo

  4. Your outfit is great very simple and chic and the colours work really well :), I have been looking for some great boots like those for ages

    I hope you will follow my blog



  5. I know exactly what you mean about envying people who can buttoned shirts up to the top and look great! Forever the problem with boobs. Though I'm sure they feel the same that we can look great in dresses that were made for killer cleavage.

    I love this outfit, looks such effortless style! Great boots for the snow too xoxo

  6. Really like those boots, been looking for a winter pair for a while

  7. I've been after a denim shirt to wear over dresses for ages and have had no luck, any I've tried on either don't seem to fit right or make me look like a boy! This one looks lovely though, I'm planning a h&m visit at the weekend so will keep a lookout! :)
    I really like those boots, I relented this year and bought some sensible winter boots, better than slipping all over the place like I usually do!

  10. You are so gorgeous, I love that denim shirt but me and denim DO NOT get on unfortunately :(

  11. like this outfit ! maybe i wear my shirt like that tomorrow!

  12. I have the same problem with shirts :( would love a cute dress or blouse that buttons all the way up. Darn boobs. Love this outfit, warm, comfy and stylish. Perfect :)

  13. I love this outfit from head to toe! I love the way you tied your belt, I'm going to have to do that. And I love the denim, I'll have to try to pair my similar top to something like this. So fab!




  14. I'm also one of those people that has a hard time finding button up shirts that work for me, it is the curse of the large chested. I love this look, you look so pretty, I hope you don't think I'm weird for saying this but you have such a pretty eye color. It hasn't been very cold where I live but I've been slacking with my wardrobe anyway - lots of jeans and simple shirts.


  15. I'm absolutely hating the weather right now! Your hair is utterly perfect. I bought a denim jacket last year and it definitely never gets worn, but the shirt is such a good idea!

  16. I've been after a denim shirt for ages but they're all really overpriced- I can barely bring myself to spend £30 on an actual pair of jeans, let alone a top! I went to Manchester this weekend and packed thinking it would much warmer than Edinburgh, only to get caught out by the snow, luckily my boots turned out to be more waterproof than I expected.

  17. you look gorgoeus! I love the boots!



  18. love your boots!!


  19. I love the creasing? detail by the buttons, very pretty! Please can i steal your eyebrows? :) xxx

    1. Must say this: The layout of your blog is so nice!

  21. I've got a denim jacket like this but haven't worn it in ages. Your lovely outfit has reminded me of it - I might even wear it tomorrow! Also love your boots

  26. I need to get myself a denim shirt too instead of stealing my sisters all the time! Yours looks lovely! I'll head down to H&M now ;-). This is the perfect comfy outfit! xx

  27. I can't get up in the morning at all lately either :( spring is supposed to be on it's way now! Love those boots, I really need some new ones but I am so fussy when it comes to boots for myself for some reason.

  28. I love this look :)

    Laura xoxo
