A few weeks ago, I managed to get a few snaps of myself heading out in my new Grana Boxy Silk Shirt.
I picked out this top (courtesy of Grana) because I was looking for something a bit “summery” and still “smart”.
Plus I wanted something a bit “grown up” that I could wear to client meetings, but not be too boring and formal.
1) Office Outfit – Ok I don’t work in an office, but I met some newish clients and I didn’t want to look too corporate, too casual or too fashiony. So this top was perfect with a plain black pencil skirt, blazer and heels for my meeting. I was running late, so I didn’t get a photo of my outfit!
2) Fun / Dressy Outfit – I wore the shirt with a ruffle skirt (omg I love this skirt!). I tied a knot, tight under my bust and it looked super cute for the photo. Then I relaxed the knot a little when I actually wore it out (to a day time soft launch in the city).
I probably could have just worn the top in a normal way, tucked into the skirt.
3) Smart Casual Outfit – And this is me, meeting up with some girlfriends for a coffee date, with jeans and flats.
I could probably wear it over a white dress, to make it look like a skirt.
It’s a lovely, light and breezy top. It’s super versatile and easy to wear. The quality it just amazing. I love the feel of this silk crepe de chine.
I chose a pastel blue, because 1) wanted to try more colour 2) pastels are going to be on trend this spring 3) pastel blue is easier to wear than other pastel colours like yellow or purple.
Warning though: it’s a bit cropped so it’s better suited to high waisted jeans or skirts.
The good thing about it being cropped, is that it makes my legs look longer!
I’m wearing the XXS. I’m usually a AU6 or UK6.
