Instead of just using the term OOTD, I've decided to try out some new names for blog posts. SO this is a "New In The Wardrobe" post. So even though it is an OOTD post, it encompasses something that has been newly added to my wardrobe. Make sense? Hopefully?
Anyway recently Surfdome got in touch with me asking if I would be interested in reviewing anything from their site. I'd seen a few bloggers mentioning the Surfdome brand but hadn't really looked at it before, as it truck me as a kind of surfy-snowboardy kind of site. I was actually quite wrong in thinking this, as even thought they sell this type of clothing, they also sell more "lifestyle" brands such as Joules and Bench.
Whilst browsing the site I came across the Wolf & York, which is exclusive to Surfdome, and picked out this polka dot shirt. I thought it was something I would be able to both dress up and dress down.
The shirt is good quality material. I expected it being slightly thicker than it was, perhaps more of a winter thickness, but that's not a bad thing, as often really thick shirts are quite stiff. It's not completely thin and see through either though which is a bonus. The shirt is advertised as black but I will say everyone has said its more of a very dark blue. Having worn it next to a pair of black trousers I'm inclined to agree, although I'm not sure you can really tell next to the black jumper in these pictures. The shirt also has very dark brown buttons down the front.
Paired with some dark wash skinny jeans and a pair of heels, this makes a smart enough outfit for work or for casual drinks of an evening - easy day to night wear. I added a jumper for extra warmth, which helps dress it down but without looking too casual.
I was really impressed with the quality of the shirt, and the little details, such as the logo on the seam, make it much more 'high-end'. It's also currently on sale for £17.48 which is an absolute bargain! There are some great items in the Surfdome sale, and I will be keeping my eye on the Wolf and York brand in the future!

The more eagle-eyed amongst you may also have noticed yet another change in hair colour! I decided that I wanted something much more natural looking for the wedding, and white hair, white skin and a white dress didn't work so well! This is a working progress and I'm still working on the perfect colour as I still get a lot of fade at the moment, but this is somewhere near what my natural colour used to be! I've still got another nine months to get it right though!
