wearing your dad's shirt

I didn't intend to keep this shirt when I bought it. I liked it but I just thought I didn't need it. However Missguided's terrible returns policy always catches me out and I had to keep it. When it's not their terrible delivery service (Not entirely their faulty, but GOD YODEL IS TERRIBLE) something always seems to go wrong with my order. I always end up having to keep whatever I order from there as a two week return policy just isn't enough for me. I always forget (despite living around the corner) to take things back. I must remember in future just to order one item at a time. But Im a sucker for free postage so I always have to make it up to the minimum for free "next day" delivery. Anyway enough whinging about my poor time management skills, the outfit. The shirt itself is actually really lovely. I picked it in a 14 to give it that oversized boyfriend feel. It actually reminds me of something that my dad would wear, hence the name of the outfit. And I'm not entirely sure if thats a good or a bad thing! I paired it with leather trousers, a neon clutch (my Xara bag had to be thrown away because it was covered in blood after my fall at the weekend!) and my new favourite shoes, Topshop Wink's. I talked about my love for my new shoes over the weekend and my love is still going strong. Shoes just make me happy!

  49. Love your paisley top. I don't think it looks bad at all. .. Good thing you kept it. I really dislike stores with a short return period as well, I always forget to send it back right away.
