Ripped

TOPSHOP Jeans & Tee / DOROTHY PERKINS Clutch / ASOS Heels

I know, I know, it's the white tee again. But what's a girl to do if she has fallen in love with it? Here I've worn it with a cool pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, for an easy and laid back look. I couldn't resist adding minimal heels to jazz it up a little, but it'd been just as cool with a pair of chucks or slip-ons.
Or dare I say...Birkenstocks? I'm still undecided about them, but I've seen them being rocked so well by a lot of my favourite people. What do you think of them? 

 I recently got to shoot with my lovely friend Shen. Her photography game is on point, and if I could carry her in my pocket everywhere, I honestly would. We've known each other online for years, and when she asked me if i'd be up to shoot, I was super excited. We finally met and hung out and had fun on the day. It was a little grey, but made for the perfect backdrop to shoot her photos. Make sure you click here to see more of her amazing work.

I love how versatile your style is, like one minute you'll be wearing a tailored-chic outfit and then another day ripped jeans, yet still looking glam as always.

I love this look I honestly get so motivated every time I look on your site. Your style is impeccable, I'd love to like email and chat with you about your plans and thoughts about planning your post. Motivation is something you give EVERYDAY I really want to just be you, lets just switch body parts Lol

BTW I have been searching for boyfriend jeans that fit me that way, did you get a bigger size for the "baggy" look or did you buy male jeans?

Jules Styles said...

Your gorgeous as usual and your friends photography is really good.

Lovely!

Johana... said...

You look so cute and chic. Classic Shirley :)

As for my opinions of Birks... well... Honestly, I think they are very hard to play up as I've seen many outfits with people wearing them and they always seem to make feet look clunky and awkward, no matter how pretty the pedicure is.

But hey, if you're bent on 'em, rock 'em.

I love this look. I have always been scared to try the "boyfriend" jeans but can admit that I have been drawn to the style. This pic has motivated me to go for it. Thanks Shirley :-)
