Last week I failed to publish a Moodboard Monday. I was camping over the long weekend and didn’t have internet access. A decent excuse you might agree but I could have prepared one before I went away. But there’s an excuse for that too – I was too busy packing So I’m trying to make up for it this week by including as many items as I can possibly squeeze into the one moodboard. It’s a bumper edition. The theme? Printed shirts and blouses.
I am a huge fan of the printed shirt / blouse and it’s mainly because you can wear them across a broad spectrum of occasions. I get a bit excited when an item of clothing can be worn to work, while parenting and to the beach and the printed shirt ticks all these boxes. I like to stick to fabrics that breathe well like linen and cotton. The polyester ones tend to induce a higher level of sweating and with the heat in summer, this outcome is not ideal. I also like to go with the “ironing optional” attitude. With a printed shirt, the wrinkles are much less noticeable so don’t stress if you don’t have time or can’t be bothered.
All the shirts in this collection are UNDER $100 and would look great with a skirt, pants or shorts:
1. Volcom brawl sleeveless shirt $47.99 by Volcom at Surf Stitch; 2. Stevie shirt $55.99 by Rip Curl at Surf Stitch; 3. Destiny cotton top $49.95 by Nest Picks at Birdsnest; 4. Shay chambray yoke print shirt $39.99 by Jeanswest; 5. Floral print linen shirt $48.97 by Sussan.
