Donning a white shirt is such a style short-cut. Cult wardrobe staple that it is, immortalised by everyone from Katherine Hepburn appropriating it for women to a monochromed Linda Evangelista shot by Peter Lindbergh for Vogue…

And just check Pinterest for a host of white shirt timeless classic inspo. This weekend I styled up a fitted poplin shirt by British shirtmakers TM Lewin (I had no idea, but they’ve been going since 1898). Best known for menswear, TM Lewin do a whole range of women’s shirts as well. I sized up for a bit of extra starched looking fabric!

In light of my current obsession with white and denim, I thought I’d contrast the shirt’s tailored lines with ragged denim cut-offs. These are a Zara pair from last summer which I’d almost forgotten about. They sit quite low and are so comfortable, perfect for these hot days. Obviously, I slipped on my shoe of the moment (of the decade) this time, in a super nerdy chocolate brown. (There’s nothing quite like a new pair of Birkenstocks, is there? I think we all get so used to wearing them hard for months we forgot how wonderful they look fresh out the box!).

I also did a little fix-up job on one of my favourite necklaces – a rose gold hand engraved piece by Annina Vogel, which Gus snapped. Added to my pile of jewellery for the menders, I rescued it and with the help of a little gold safety pin fixed it up. I’m also obsessed with this necklace by Australian jewellery designer Natalie Marie right now, plus this cat ring by Catbird – I feel a little shopping spree coming on!

I should also mention British accessories brand Iconemesis (where my Gemma Correll cat iPhone case is from) has currently got an Indiegogo campaign on the go (go), so if you like their designs – all by independent designers – then go give them some monetary support, you’ll receive a phone case in return!
