Shirt that will send you Packing

If you caught my “A Little Slice of Heaven” blog, you will have read my story about my new love of Oliver Bonas.

In that blog, I spoke about how they went above and beyond with their customer service. I talked about how they found me the sold out item. So here it is…


This shirt proved to be a big hit on the Oliver Bonas website and I typically arrived a little late to the party. By the time I had fallen in love, it was sold out and even disappeared off the website!

You may now be wondering why I am sharing the story of a sold out shirt that you can no longer get hold of… Keep with me. Firstly, I wanted to share it because of the fantastic customer care I received. Richmond managed to not only find one, but order to the store, so I didn’t have to go to any other store to pick it up. Secondly, this means that you can do the same. So if you, like me, have fallen in love with this shirt just call Oliver Bonas and ask where has this style available in your size. This shirt is still available but you just need to work a little harder to get your hands on it – for me it was worth it!

The Vacation shirt is definitely not my usual style, but I’m all for trying new things. That’s what I adore about fashion!

I really loved this design and I pictured how I would style it with my wardrobe. It is the epitome of summer and VAY-CAY, so I wanted to pair it with crisp white jeans!

When coming up with a pun title, I called in some help and the lovely John mentioned that it was quite Miami Vice. I couldn’t agree more and it makes me love it even more – time to book my flight!

This shirt could also be worn as a cover up, with the right swimwear and this thrown over the top…

If you like the idea of this shirt, but this one isn’t for you… I have saved you the hard work and found you some alternatives.

ASOS Yellow Floral

ASOS Frill Detail

Rails Pastel

ZARA Pearls

Rails Colourful Silk

Topshop Flamingo

So after doing my research it seems the lairy shirt is in! It also seems I have fallen in love with another one. The Topshop Flamingo is so pretty! Browsing for you guys always ends in disaster for me!

So what do you think? Is the Miami Vice style shirt for you or are you staying conservative this summer?

Love Life,
