Check-ing it out

For those of you who don't know, I love a check shirt. I've lost count of how many I actually own, yet I still can't stop myself buying more and more. Last week was no exception, after popping into town for a bit of retail therapy with my mum I ended up raiding the sale rails, which appeared to be gracing every single shop I went in to.

I picked this check shirt up in Miss Selfridge for a mere £10, a fraction of its original price tag of £28. The cool colours are perfect for the dull weather at the moment and, when it does finally get warmer, I can wear it buttoned up with cut-off shorts or even as a cover-up for the beach - for those who are lucky enough to be going on holiday this summer. Today I've styled it with ankle grazer jeans from Topshop, which are the perfect fit for my stumpy pins - part of the reason I never shop anywhere else for jeans. I've also worn my long sleeved turtle neck underneath for extra warmth and my gorgeous navy boucle style jacket from Primark, another babe of a bargain at £7, reduced from £25 (can you believe it?!).

 I am also struggling through life in these shoes today. Yes, they're flats but I accidently picked up a size too small and consequently have to covered my battered tootsies in plasters to wear these lovelies. Just too pretty not to wear though. No pain no gain, right?!
