This year, I’ve acquired a number of shirts: a white one this summer and for autumn/winter a pink pinstripe, a grey pinstripe and a grey linen grungy affair. I do mean shirts, not blouses. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to jump on this bandwagon, but I’ve never really had shirts before. It’s always been blouses or tops and knitwear. Now I’ve started, it seems I just have to own more! They are just so versatile for layering, and they work really well with my other current favourite thing, a gilet. The pink pinstripe one here is from Two Danes. It wasn’t cheap but it feels fantastic to wear. My others have come from M&S and Topshop (yes – the grungy one, as you probably guessed). I think I like them because the v neck is flattering for big boobs, plus you can roll the sleeves and layer a few bracelets and of course they’re not clingy. They also dress up or down so for someone like me who likes to be on the move, they serve multiple purpose on holiday. Anyone else a fan?
