Fashion: Rugby Ready

I posted last week about some of my favourite moments in Rugby (though there’s now a new one to add, go Japan!). This week it’s time to showcase my lovely England shirt a bit more.

 photo 2015-09-25 17.03.44_zps55yglzyy.jpgKitbag have kindly sent me over a new England shirt so I can #WearTheRose, and I’ve discovered that wearing skinny jeans, high boots, rugby top and red lipstick is one of my favourite looks. Who knew?!

 photo 2015-09-25 17.03.10_zps4ozc6xqf.jpgI initially panicked a little bit when I opened my parcel, noting that my requested Size 10 had been mysteriously replaced with a Size 18…now either I have a mis-sized shirt or these come up veryyyy small. As it is it’s a little baggy, but I doubt I’d have squeezed into a 10. Something to bear in mind if you are ordering! Having said that, this is the first women’s rugby shirt I’ve owned as I’ve always opted for a men’s fit before. This one is nicely shaped, still relaxed and baggy and (I say very proudly) still spotlessly white.

Safe to say this won’t be coming to university with me, as I know damn well I’d wash it with my socks and it would be grey by the end of the World Cup…

I’ve also got freshly cut hair (which since it was cut wayyyy before Italy is a relief!), and you’ll be pleased to know the roots/”ombre” look has been sorted since these photos were taken.

Now all I need is a reason to go out and celebrate wearing this. Come on England!

Are you getting into the spirit of the World Cup? I have to say London was definitely buzzing for the opening weekend!


  • This looks really cute on you and like your coordinating lipstick!

    Your hair looks lovely! How odd about the sizing though? I’ve been watching the rugby but I have to say I’ve not got a clue what’s going on – am more of a football girl! x

      I know, it definitely doesn’t feel like an 18! Aha, I’m like you but the other way round, no clue about football! x

    Great to see you ‘wearing the rose’! I think I had an England shirt many, many years ago – although I can’t actually remember! I’d love another one though. I’ve also really wanted an Irish jersey for years since one of my good friends from uni always wears one when we watch Ireland games… my granny’s Irish so I think I could get away with it!
