pug life

Me (as always), stands in front of a black wardrobe with a mint green button up shirt, black skirt, heels and a mint green bag. I have one hand on my hip

Shirt: ASOS Curve
Skirt: ASOS Curve
Bag: ASOS
Necklace: Primark
Shoes: New Look
Glasses: London Retro*

I appear to be regressing fast in 2013, which is scary when I think about just how old I’m going to be in a couple of months (29! Wahhh!) – and as soon as I saw this adorable shirt emblazoned with cute little pups I had to order straight away. I was a bit sad that Klee pointed our that it’s actually a print of French Bulldogs, not pugs – naughty ASOS! – but the gorgeous colour and style is enough for me to absolutely love it anyway.

The bunny bag is another favourite of mine. I always forget to photograph my bags but I think this one is lovely. Although, it’s really bulky and so I have developed a bad habit of knocking into walls and tourists as I make my way to and from work. Oops.

A word on the fit: I’m not particularly well endowed in the bosom area, and even I have found the shirt gaping at the bust a little. It’s also a bit snug around the hips but because I’m tucking it into a skirt, this doesn’t really matter. Hope that helps!

Me as before, in a slightly different pose and a wee smile on my face. I’ve also ditched the bag.

Just wanted to add another photo to prove that I do smile, honest guv! It’s quite funny how I’m always looking serious in my blog posts – if you meet me in real life, you know I’m anything but.

Hope you’re all well, my dears!

    Absolutely fantastic outfit! I love the shirt and I’ve wanted that bag for ages.

  • Rachel

    Gorgeous look, I love this shade of blue paired with black. You look so adorable and stylish, I am sitting about in my very un-stylish pajamas as always haha. This is the cutest purse too by the way, I don’t think I’d mind being accidentally whacked with a purse this cute.

    This outfit is so perfect and you look fabulous! That shirt is AMAZING… I think I need it. Your comment about the sizing is really helpful as I find shirts a bit tricky sometimes and I’ve been wanting one of the animal patterned shirts for monthx. Oh, and I love that bag, too! :)

    How have I managed to miss this shirt on ASOS? It’s gorgeous, love the colour and although I’m not a dog fan (could get stoned for saying that I’m sure), I do love animal themed prints on things. It doesn’t look nearly as sheer on you as it does on the model (I realise you are wearing something underneath, but even the sleeves look quite opaque).

      I would say it is pretty sheer – the ASOS site photos are probably more accurate in that respect. In fact I want to wear it to work, but it’s too bleedin’ cold! x

    That bag is just beautiful!

      Thank you so much, and I absolutely love your blog and hair! x

    I love this look! It’s office-wear without looking stuffy. How can adorable French Bulldogs be stuffy? And that purse…wow! Love the color and the bunny emblem. It has an Alice in Wonderland vibe to it. It’s another element that keeps the outfit fresh and fun!
