Shoes: TUK (or available here on sale in black)
So close to naming this post “Cats, Boobs & Tea”. SO close. Because, boobs, amirite?
This fabulous t-shirt is available in unisex sizes, so (silly me) I sized down, and the result is… pneumatic, to say the least.
I love the design though. Love it. Cats, books and tea are three of the best things in life (along with long hugs, the smell of rain, and chocolate), so I couldn’t resist this top once I saw it. It’s been on my wishlist since last year, and when my brother gave me an Etsy gift card for my Christmas present I finally snapped it up.
It’s made of a lovely soft worn-in fabric with plenty of stretch (obviously). Despite being a unisex fit the sleeves aren’t wide and flappy, and the shoulders aren’t too wide. In retrospect I should have trusted the seller and ordered according to measurements. To be honest, I’m severely tempted to order another in the larger size.
When I first spotted the tee I knew I wanted to team it with a full black skirt, and I do really like it with this one from Target.
The shoes though… let me give you a close-up on the shoes:
Adorable cat shoes with a wearable little heel, in my favourite, plummy colour (it’s finally back in style this season, thank God).
They’re from UK brand TUK and they fit my wide foot comfortably, plus the little heel is perfect height for walking. If you’re finding the burgundy velvet just a little bit too baroque you can also find them (on sale!) in a black suede.
Should you wish to relocate this top to Diamond Beach in order to make space in your wardrobe, I can help out…
LOL, I’ll keep that in mind, Mum <3
I’m glad you ordered the smaller size tee – I actually think it’s perfect! Snug and flattering… Love the skirt, too – and oh, the shoes! The shoes!
PS What a wonderful brother – Etsy gift card such a great idea.
I know, he’s the best! I still have a bit left over too, and I’m trying to decide what to put it towards 🙂
Those shoes are AMAZING.
Thanks Jenny! Blame my sister, she has the flats version, and I thought they were TDF!
Don’t you dare size up in that shirt! You look smokin’ hot in it as it is, and that’s from a fellow (ahem) rubinesque figured gal!
Yeah – I agree! The fitted t-shirt looks good over the fullness of the skirt.
Ha, yes it’s definitely a showstopper o_O !
Even though I’m a dog person, I’m coveting your t-shirt and shoes like mad! ?
LOL, I’ll have to keep and eye out for some puppy dog shoes for you!
Im a very similar size to you tee wise, what size did you opt for if you don’t mind me asking? This t-shirt is definitely going to be in my future…thanks!
Hi Amy – I bought the size L 🙂
It was so lovely to meet you at the A+ Market the other week! As a fellow crazy cat lady, I NEED these shoes in my life! I don’t drink tea, but books and cats are my recipe for happiness.
They’re a match made in heaven, aren’t they Julie? Happiness is a cat on your lap, and a good book in your hands.
I have a full, black, skirt, too – I think I’m going to have to try wearing it with a t-shirt.
I’m with you 100% – cats, books and tea are up there on my ‘best things in life’ list. How’s Miss Suki doing anyway? Looks like she’s doing well (from what I see on your IG.) Saucy minx! <3
Thanks Stephie! Suki’s good – a cheeky monkey, as usual, but she’s got the boyfriend wrapped around her paw and she just got a new bed, so everything’s coming up Suki.
Thanks Tami 🙂
