Polka Dots & Bows

T.M. Lewin Shirt (℅ T.M. Lewin) / Gap Skirt (similar here)  / Banana Republic Shoes (similar here)
A/X Sunglasses (similar here) / Attwood & Sawyer Earrings (on loan from Attwood & Sawyer)
I have never shopped at T.M. Lewin before, mostly because I'm not someone who works in an environment that requires me to wear any kind of formal workwear on a regular basis - my formal meeting attire pretty much consists of the same shift in both navy and black and what I like to refer to as my "lady skirt," a simple black pencil skirt. I have however become really obsessed with great shirts and blouses that I can mix & match with my more casual separates, so when offered a shirt for review from the folks at T.M. Lewin, I hesitantly said yes hoping it would be what I expected. 

I was under the impression that T.M. Lewin was all about traditional, tailored workwear and to be honest, they're great at that, but I had no idea they also offer more fashionable pieces too. When I saw this pussy bow blouse, I must admit that visions of Charlie's Angels started dancing in my head and I had no choice but to pull out the big sunglasses and get going on the Farrah Fawcett hair. The Jane Bow Micro Diamond Shirt is so much more lovely than I expected. It fits true to size, tapers where it needs to and the puff sleeves with extra long cuffs make it so much different than other similar shirt styles. I'm really looking forward to experimenting with how I can layer this shirt under pieces this Autumn… I suspect it will be a staple in my A/W wardrobe this year!
The Jan Bow Micro Diamond Shirt is available directly from T.M. Lewin for £39.95 or as part of a multi-buy for £20. Autumn will be here before we know it… What new season staples are you hoarding?
