wasting my young years

skirt and top - topshop
This is a continuation of the mission to try and wear my black tulle skirt 'casually'. So I decided to go to the extremes and just shove a t-shirt on. Laziness? Maybe. At least I made the effort to iron the t-shirt.......(with my hair straighteners). I'm on the hunt for some more oversized t-shirts at the moment, it seems like nowhere sells them anymore. Trusty Urban Outfitters is no longer trusty and Topshop's all seem to have v necks?!?! I'm not ready for this drastic Simon Cowell move. If anyone's seen some baggy t-shirts recently pleeeeaaseee let me know! Anyway, for now I shall put up with this lovely floral printed one that I bought from Topshop last year, it has a giant soap stain on it from work but hopefully I'm hiding it pretty well....(fingers crossed).

now playing: i've been listening to london grammar, yep i'm slow

  7. Asos has tons of oversized shirts going on at the moment, dunno if they're for your liking:

    Otherwise the men section of H&M or primark are always a good guess, just have to look for a not too stiff fabric. :)

  13. I too am obsessed with baggy tee shirts! I recently picked a simple white one up from Brandy Melville but it's a bit cropped but I am looking for a longer one... Seriously tee shirts are life.

    Love how you styled the tulle, I don't think I would ever be brave enough to wear something like that... You look so perfect it's not fair hahaha.

  16. I got a baggy (slight) v-neck from forever 21 last year, I lived in it all summer! I know they have nice baggy shirts and t-shirts in H&M and zara :) x

  17. I love wearing a skirt and a shirt when neither are fitted...a la olsen twins :) the tulle skirt is amazing and i love that you ironed the shirt with straighteners!!

    im a huge lover of anything cozy, so i usually shop in the mens section when i want something that's looser. you get lots of weird looks and fighting for mirrors is weird, but i always find something and i'm convinced the materials are nicer! men's shirts from h&m pretty much dominate my wardrobe
