No, I didn't need another shirt but upon seeing this Zara checked number in a charity shop I felt it would get good use. I suppose checked shirts go best with jeans or walking trousers, neither of which I wear all that often but also make for good layering and an alternative to a jumper in the warmer months.
Tank tops haven't featured much over the past couple of winters but often they are hidden under a jumper or coat, so I do pop them on quite often. 

Not that helpful but Kezzie did request a close up on my boots. I polished them at the start of the season and must remember to do so frequently, else they won't last as well as they should. Polishing footwear is such a bother, does anyone else do this voluntarily any more? With more plastic shoes than leather ones sold, I suppose not but a leather upper is always going to demand some care and attention to keep it healthy.
I didn't realise the extent of the impact the huge front pockets of the shirt would make to how my top sits. Massive pockety shapes to my whole front, oops. Won't make that mistake again.

Take care,

  1. You can never have too many shirts. I made a similar mistake with a shirt under a jumper. It had tiny breast pockets that made my boobs look weirdly shaped, and lumpy under my jumper! Sadly I didn't realise until after I'd been wandering around town (which shows how long ago it happened). Lesson learned.
    I can't remember the last time I polished a pair of shoes or boots, although I do know I have a polishing kit somewhere (probably covered in dust and cobwebs).

  2. I would have bought that shirt too! It looks great under the tank! Ah, I missed the Sophie tanks!
    Thanks for the close up! It's good to get ideas for walking boots! I have two pairs which are synthetic. I do polish my boots periodically, but not regularly- they do need it though as they get dreadfully scuffed on my bike pedals! I recently took my red Mary Jane shoes to the cobbler for a new strap and he did a proper polish on them for me too.
