Oversized Checkered Shirt

Oversized Checkered Shirt – You all know that I love my oversized clothing and it’s pretty obvious that it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing, if it makes me happy then I’ll wear it! 🙂

I’m one of those people that tends to run out and buy different clothing for the beach ranging from shorts to kimonos, dresses to bikinis but really – there isn’t any need!

All you need to do is look through your wardrobe and I’m sure you’ll find an oversized shirt of some kind – in this post I’m wearing a lovely oversized checkered shirt from Lee Official which is perfect for the summer due to it’s lightweight material and pastel blue tones.

Obviously you can team it up with a pair of shorts if you’re going for lunch or a stroll around your holiday destination but seeing as I was relaxing by the sea I’ve just thrown it over my Biba Bikini which you can see in detail in this post.

After looking through these pictures at the beautiful greek sea, I’m very tempted to get on a plane and go somewhere warm….who’s coming with me? 🙂

Who needs beachwear when you can style your oversized checkered shirt over your bikini!? 😉

Let me know what you all think – what do normally wear on the beach? Do you keep things casual or are you a little dressier with kimonos and pretty patterns?

    I love your affinity for oversized clothing, I myself am a huge fan as well. I am pretty casual when I go to the beach. I don’t even have a “cover up” I guess the tom boy in me pervades 🙂

    You’ve made a very good point – summer/beach clothing is usually already in our wardrobe if we look hard enough, there’s no need to run out to buy specific pieces! You wear this shirt perfectly and it looks so stylish worn on the beach 🙂

    Have a lovely weekend Layla!

    Ok I need to get me an oversized shirt like this, not for my beach wear as we’re welcoming autumn already but for a casual look with skinny jeans. I love how this one looks on you and I really wish I was sunning myself up on that beach right now x

    This look is so pretty! I love the blue shades with the sea too. I usually wear the same and keep it casual, I like to go more dressy in the night time. The beach is to look natural in my opinion.

    Believe it or not, I don’t own any checkered shirt and now that I’m seeing how good it looks on you and how versatile it is, I wonder why I never bothered getting one for myself. I guess it’s time for me to do some shopping.
