It’s a down right royal shame when you own a gold skirt and just NEVER wear it. This is one of those items in my wardrobe which I just can’t part with because 1) it’s a second hand Thurley skirt and would cost more than I’m willing to part with and 2) it’s GOLD, duh?!
It sprang immediately to mind during my annual post-Christmas bargain hunting expedition when I saw this white shirt in H&M and thought the two were made for each other!
Now, as some of you may know, I abandoned the good ol’ classic white shirt years ago along with my black pants/jumpers/anything that’ll make me look even remotely bigger/ etc. For whatever stupid reason I’d decided that white shirts were on the “do not wear” list and I hadn’t given them a second thought since.
That was of course until I saw this blouse and I instantly fell in love. The little gold beaded detailing really had me questioning my former stance and I threw caution to the wind and bought it!
Not long after my purchase Beth over at Almost Posh posted about embarking on her #NeverSayNever2017 challenge and it instantly resonated with me. It’s all about trying out previously shunned items of clothing and giving them a red hot go – a la my white shirt!
Who’s joining Beth and me in breaking some personal fashion rules and saying #NeverSayNever2017 ?
Shirt: H&M // Skirt: Thurley (given to me by a VERY generous friend) // Sandals: Kmart
Love your outfit 🙂
Thank so much Maitri xo
Love the shirt and LOVE the skirt!!! You look gorgeous. My never say never would be that silver pleat skirt I’ve owned for a couple for years and never worn!
You should totally bust it out – metallic are bloody AWESOME! xo
That’s a cool idea! Some of the things on my list are really weird. Just stuff I have had an aversion to for strange reasons. Today I wore a plain tank top. No patterns on it to distract from my mid section. No words on it. No anything. And I felt good in it! I put it down to my tiny bit of weight loss. I must keep pushing on and finding even more never say never items I can try on again! x
Yay Kez! You go girl 💋 It’s the little victories like that that get us through 😘
I love it! White is such a pure clean color to add to your outfit! 🙂 xo
Thanks so much Katie! I know, I love the crispness of wearing white, but without a doubt I’ll spill something on it LOL! xo
Haha! I was thinking about that too! I wear whatever I eat! Lol! Xo

I LIKE WHITE SHIRTS…THIS ONE ROCKS. FOR SOME REASON, BUTTON-DOWNS ARE FAVE TOO THE GOLD SHE’S WEARING DOESN’T COME AT ALL CLOSE TO WHAT’S INSIDE! 🙂
Silver and gold make the world happier. so do you in this outfit! (That’s okay, isn’t it?)
Thank you Jonathan, yes that’s definitely okay 😊😊
This outfit is the absolute business! I do love the gold detail in the blouse, ties in perfectly. And yay for joining the challenge! Thanks for the shout-out 🙂
You’re welcome and thank you for reminding me that sometimes you have to go against your instincts!! 💋😊😝
You are the cutest! This look was Gold class xoxo
Awwww thanks so much DM! 🙂 xo
Lovely skirt and shirt too. I was just in H & M recently and purchased a gorgeous dress and a pair of pants and goodness me, they were so well priced… I have just spent a weekend cleaning out my wardrobe because I could never find anything to wear. Now I have rediscovered so many articles of clothing that I obviously liked when I bought them (as I don’t do impulse buying anymore) and even had some pairs of pants adjusted at the hem so I can wear them with lower heels, etc.
I can’t wait to actually go into the wardrobe in 2017 and confidently choose an outfit with aplomb!
YAAAAAAS! That is absolutely awesome! I love hearing about embracing confidence through fashion 💋
Such a great pair, indeed! I love the gold details on the blouse Rosie!
I just followed you to not miss a thing.
