An oversized shirt is an ideal piece for spring - it serves the same purpose as a coat but acts as a cover up without the warmth. I've had this patterned shirt for a few years now and I bought it because I loved the pattern, but at the time it was my intention to take it up to a standard length. However, I'm glad I didn't as it's been much more versatile long (as you can see here and here) - my abject laziness has served me well in this instance.
The outfit actually started with the Panama hat (bad hair day) and went from there. I knew I needed baggy jeans, flats and something with long sleeves to keep my arms warm, so this is what I ended up with. I hadn't used my Elvis & Kresse bowling bag in a while (I missed its made-from-fire-hoses smell) - I liked how the mustard yellow colour picked out the flecks in the shirt. The finishing touch was the dipped leaf earrings from Accessorize (which also come in silver) and yes, they're made from real leaves: a total impulse buy but I absolutely adore them!
A bag made from fire hoses and earrings made from real leaves - do you have any clothing or accessories made from unusual or unconventional materials? Do share in the comments, I'd love to know :)
