Utility Shirt and Maxi Skirt

I love utility shirts. I like the versatility they give, you can go serious and wear them tucked into a pencil skirt or sashay around town with them tucked into a pleated skirt with the sleeves rolled up. For a casual look, wear them untucked with your fave skinnies or leggings and a pair of flats (don't forget to roll up the sleeves to complete the casual look).

Woke up Friday morning and as usual I couldn't make up my mind what to wear.  I'd brought out this shirt days before to wear with a peach coloured ankle grazing trousers but wasn't sure the colours would go together,  I decided to make the shirt the focal point of my entire outfit and build everything else around it.  

I paired it with my trusty black pleated maxi skirt, black belt and wrapped my hair in a mini turban (bad hair weave day).

Tying the turban wasn't an easy feat I tell you, it kept coming undone and my hair just refused to stay under the scarf.  After a 15 minute battle, I won and with a flourish secured the front knot with a booby pin.

Love my colourful butterfly earrings, I'm drawn to butterflies for reasons I'm yet to fathom.

Love the look?  Think I should have added something or gone without another?  Well go ahead and drop a comment then!
