It's A Man's World...

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:

Similar here
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,

  1. I love the print, I often looking the mens department, in fact I've just blogged about a jumper I got in Primark mens xx

  2. OMG, I *love* the shirt! Bright colours and prints are the best :) x

  3. I love this shirt, but would probably chop the sleeves so they are three quarter length :-)

  4. Love that shirt and now off to look in Jacamo to see what goodies I can find.
