Style Snippet: Illustrated Ballerinas

Wednesday, 6 January 2016
My first call in the sales is always Zara because you can find a good bargain and thats exactly what I did. I got this amazing Ballerina shirt and I'm in love.

Shirt: Zara
Scarf: Zara
Coat: Topshop 
Jeans: Topshop
Hat: New Look

I saw this shirt and I thought it looked like an artist I would've studied in year 11, ahah. I don't think I've said this before but I used to do Fine Art at GCSE and I didn't enjoy the subject but I loved finding cute artists and this shirt just reminded me of something I would've loved. It's a soft, almost sheer material which is lovely for comfort but I will say that it does crease easily. I mean, it started to have a few line after I wore it with my coat. To me this isn't a big issue because I think it gives it a more worn and laid back vibe but I know it might annoy some people.
It's a deep navy colour with contrast yellow, pinks, white and red brought in by the illustrations. I think it's so cute and has a kind of circus feeling because of the dancers and little props that they have. I love the illustrations because it's like the shirt is a one of drawn piece, when actually it's just a hughstreet shirt that you don;t have to pay loads for from Easy, hahah. 
I love the details on the shirt because it has hidden buttons, I think this just keeps all the attention on the ballerinas and it just adds a extra bit extra something to the shirt. 
I layered up with my rain coat and this huge scarf. I originally bought the scarf to bump up my order so I could get free postage but then ended up loving it more than the other things, does that happen to anyone else haha?
It's a lovely chocolate brown colour and it buries me in warmness. I absolutely love wrapping up, especially since my area has been really cold and flooding!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Whats your favourite sale buy?


  1. The shirt is so cute, I like that the pattern is quite subtle in a way and not garish or anything. I brought a lovely purse in the online sales but it still hasn't arrived xx

  2. This shirt is absolutely beautiful. I really like this navy blue color and the contrast colors of ballerina illustrations. You pared it perfectly. I'm definitely going to check out Zara. xo

    PS I really like what you did with your blog design. It's so clean and pretty. I always feel so relaxed and welcomed when I visit your blog. xx

  3. Aww what a cute shirt! I picked up a more 'mature' aka sophisticated looking coat from the Zara sales! Though I definitely didn't spend much time in the shops this year because I'm trying to stop myself from buying things I don't need haha!
