What I Wore : Mans Shirt Restyled!!

What I wore~

Headband ~ Primark

Shirt ~ Primark (mens)

Jeans ~ Calvin Klein

Shoes ~ Irregular Choice~ Patty

I am feeling very bouncy today. Yeah I managed my first long run in months yesterday, 10 miles 🙂 Just a matter of adding another 16 miles on now before April  =-0!!

When my son left for university he cleared out lots of old clothes, some worn, some very worn and some never worn at all. After clearing most out to the recycled bin I did save some of the nice ones to refashion into something lady like for me.

After walking around the shops I noticed lots of ladies checked shirts looked so much like mens shirts. So here we have it, da da no up-cycling need on this one.

What do you think? It looks great fastened with my chunky red belt and red pencil skirt too.

Don’t ya just love Irregular Choice shoes?

I am a little obsessed with them. If money was no object I would buy most all styles!! I love their designs. Here is one of my new pairs I got for Christmas. How great that they call each one a different name too… Meet Patty.

In other news, these jeans were to big before Christmas, now I managed to just squeeze into them 🙁

Eek and running feels so much harder last week but I realised on Sunday I had covered 34 miles for the week, so not all was bad. I really need to stop eating treats, one leads to another….. Bumping the miles up quickly for the weeks I missed over Christmas worked out good but tiring. I was hoping for a quick road to fitness but I guess No pain no gain!!

    That looks great. Wow – those shoes are amazing. I saw them on the Irregular Choice website a while ago and wondered whether to get them or not. How comfortable are they? I'd love to be able to splurge. 🙂

    Love a good man shirt… I used to wear them over very small hotpants or very big 50s pants and fishnet tights back in my clubbing days… not so much anymore, it has to be boyfriend jeans!! Thanks so much for linking up to the #AllAboutYou Link&Pin Party, just off to pin your post to the #AllAboutYou pinterest board now… x

    The shirt looks great – that is my summer style! I always wear a check shirt over Tshirt and jeans from April until September! Love the shoes too 🙂 34 miles in a week is pretty good. I'm struggling to run more than once a week at the moment because I'm working so hard on our new house, but I'm doing eight mile runs now ready to do 10 miles for the Team Honk relay next month 🙂

    Love the shirt undone look. Something about wearing a man's shirt always makes me feel sexy. I think it must hark back to some advert I saw with a hot woman eating cornflakes in a man's shirt or something. You rock the look with those shoes too. Fab!

      Thank you, I always think of Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan wearing a man shirt, haha all them years ago, it was my favourite film 🙂
