Can't beat 'em, join 'em!
Back in April, I had the pleasure of attending the launch of the first ever Jacamo store, and whilst there, couldn't help myself! I ended up buying this shirt:
And I'll be honest. I've not actually worn it yet!!
I've looked at it. I've pulled it on. But always changed my mind.
I don't know what was different today.
It might have been my general 'try more combinations' attitude, or the fact that I now have the perfect jeans to wear it with!
Back before Christmas, Rosie and I had a clothes swap. She had a pair of jeans she thought I should try, so I swapped her for a tunic.
These arrived and I LOVE them:
They are long (they actually are a little too long, where they're keeping most of my feet warm!), they're tight fitting (but still fit), and they're comfortable! WIN!
Now then, being a little ample in the rear department, I am often worried that I get the 'gaping' moment with the waistband - and as you can see from this picture - gape free!
I think what works with this, is the tightness of the jeans is down played by the looseness of the shirt. I could belt it, if I felt the need to, but in this case, I think the shape of the man shirt works!
So, my Joe Browns shirt, coupled with my Rosie jeans, does a happy Kathryn make. And it is a little adventurous, and away from my usual style, so what is not to like!
Have you played with men's clothing? What did you think?
Much love my lovelies,
