I always wanted to be Posh Spice, but I was more Baby.

Seeing how the t-shirt is now meant to be worn, reminds me of my self a good few years ago. And not in a good way! Let me tell you a story... one Christmas when I was about 13 years old, I received several gifts (as you do!) and one of those gifts was a tracksuit. Not any kind of tracksuit though...this was special (in such a bad way!). It was baby pink, and the top that came with it was meant to be worn like the brown top in the street style picture.

Of course, I was delighted! Of course, I wore the top like that, but I certainly did NOT have the cool-ness to pull it off. Of course, I had to wear some sort of shoes, but don't worry, Santa had that sorted also. Another gift was a pair of baby pink (just to carry on the theme), sparkly Sketchers. If I wasn't excited by the tracksuit, I was positively drooling over the Sketchers. OH MY GOD, I am going to look so cool in all of this (that is my deluded/ innocent 13 year old self speaking). But, of course I didn't look cool. With my untamed/ never heard of GHD hair, I looked like a very baby pink sight. I genuinely thought I looked fabulous though.

But hey, that's what the teens are for aren't they? Making Fashion mistakes.......but now I'm 22, I still make them!

But that will not stop me from wearing the t-shirt this way again. Perfect for both the Summer and the Autumn Winter Season (add more layers), the t-shirt this way is ideal. They are casual, so I decided to add a touch of Glamour with statement necklaces.

Would you wear the t-shirt this way? Don't you just love those necklaces?

Those statement necklaces are great. I have only one T-shirt I wear like that, but maybe it's because it is Winter here.

Now you've got me thinking about the Spice Girls. I'll have to listen to some of their music now.

I am not a T-shirt kind of girl so I probably won't wear it that way. This is a very interesting post. I might try it one day :)

I love all the jewelry, it's so beautiful.

I wish that I could own.

I was always Sporty Spice which is weird because I never liked her much. I should have been Posh.
