WhatLauraWore: Calvin Klein Model

Morning Beauties <3

Have you ever felt put on a white top and instantly felt like you were in an advert for Calvin Klein?  Well I kind of had that feeling this morning when getting ready for ‘dress down’ day at work. Now clearly I dont look like a model at all but I did feel pretty from the inside out today.

Here I’m wearing the western check style shirt from New Look that I featured in a recent WhatLauraBought haul. My body shape doesnt really suit shirts as I’m much bigger around my waist than I am at my chest so if I were to buy a shirt that fitted around my chest, it wouldnt fasten around my waist and if I bought a shirt to fit my tummy it would be gaping wide at my chest so I cant win with a buttoned up shirt.  Since I love the check shirt trend, I thought I would try wearing it open and I have to say, I really love wearing the shirt like this.  Since I bought it, I’ve worn it open several times over a black cami or vest top and I love how slimming this looks.  Today though, I wanted to go for something a little more summery so I opted for a simple white vest top from George at Asda and paired it with simple turned up jeggings from Yours Clothing and floral pumps from Primark. Whilst I opted for very natural, minimal makeup, I added a little bit of my signature bling with some gorgeous gold pearl and diamante heart shaped earrings from New Look, a gold and diamante Love necklace from Primark, my Thomas Sabo charm bracelet and my DKNY rose gold watch. I took a packed lunch with me today so I needed a fair sized bag with me, I opted for a canvas and brown leather bag from Matalan.

WhatLauraLoves Top Tip!
If you love check shirts but are like me and cant find the right fit, then wear it open with a plain vest top underneath. Black and white vests look gorgeous!
