Please ignore the bizarre white glove I am wearing in these pics. Don’t worry it’s not a random tribute to Michael Jackson. I badly burned myself a few days ago and have been going back and forth to the burns unit at my local hospital all week. Since my job involves handling chemicals the doctors think I will be more prone to infections and therefore I have to wear this rather attractive medical glove over my bandages.
It’s not been a great week for me so I was thrilled last night to find that my boyfriend and I had the house to ourselves for a night. Living in a shared house can get a bit stressful at times so I like to make the most of it when everyone else goes away for a weekend. We decided to stay in and cook together then watched DVDs all night. It was lovely to have some chill out time after the week I have had.
I wore this outfit because it was casual and comfortable. I’ve had this ‘Ohio life’ jersey for a few weeks now but I have to admit I find it really hard to style. I have been meaning to buy an American sports jersey for a few months. I’ve seen loads of bloggers wearing them as dresses and they all look fab. I tried this shirt as a dress but it is huge! It swamps me! I wonder if I should have bought it a size smaller than my actual size? When I tried wearing it as a dress I just felt like a slob, it looked like a night shirt! So instead I have put it with some denim shorts and I am wearing it in a kind of half-tuck style. I decided to play on the American theme and wore my dollar print shorts with some horrendously cheap looking earrings I picked up in Primark especially to go with the shorts.
I’m still not 100% comfortable wearing this jersey. I may continue to try and find a way to style it that suits me or I may have to admit that this trend just isn’t for me.
What do you think of this look? Any suggestions on how I could wear it better?
