OOTD: black and white striped shirt


Black and white striped shirt - Urban Outfitters Vintage
Shorts - Levi's (DIY frayed and studded)
Bracelet - Urban Outfitters

I picked up this black and white striped chiffon shirt from Urban Outfitters on Saturday when I went for a wander round the shops in central with Sean. I absolutely fell in love with a sleeveless River Island blouse in this striped pattern a while ago but after finally deciding to buy it, it was sold out everywhere! So when I saw this hanging on its own on one of the vintage rails I knew it was meant to be. It's quite a bold piece which makes a nice change from the other blouses I have in my wardrobe. It's longer at the back too which is nice as it means I can wear it with leggings. I think it'll look awesome with my AA Disco Pants who's first outing I'm saving for a special occasion, maybe the ZOMG Blogger Bash at the end of the month! (which i am STOKEDDDDD for!)

This week is dedicated to the horrendous task that I'm sure loads of you are familiar with, the hunt for my first internship. I'm not 100% sure exactly what field I want to get involved with, but I know it needs to involve writing, and either fashion or beauty, so I guess that helps. If any of you are well experienced experts at the old internship malarky and could offer me some tips on how to apply/what my CV should look like/any good starting points, that would be REALLY appreciated.

Also if you could like my LUCYBOOTS facebook page that'd be smashing.

  3. Ooh I really like that shirt and your bracelet! Might have to pop to UO this week! Good luck with your internship hunt, I've had a fair bit of experience... I'd just recommend to structure your CV with skills/interests first, then education and work (: And don't forget to really tailor each covering letter specifically to the company!
