A step in the right direction

xx X
Jacket: Vintage
Shirt: Monsoon
Jeans: River Island

I love this shirt, it's so easy to wear with most pieces of clothing and as the colour is just off-white it goes with everything. Was a recent(ish) purchase that mumsy bought for me to try cheer me up as she knows how low i've been - Cutie isn't she? I tend not to wear jeans as i just don't find them flattering on me whatsoever and this is now the only pair i own, i'm still not to keen if i'm honest. (yes i know i'm way too critical on myself), but a shirt or blouse always look lovely with a pair of jeans. The jacket was something of my Grandma's and i think it brings the outfit together nicely with it's dogtooth print. I love dogtooth print in black & white, it just adds a touch of class to whatever is being worn.

This is one of the first outfit posts i've done in a long time. I've been really struggling with my anxiety, depression, my insecurities, self-esteem and confidence. Even leaving the house is a struggle nowadays, and i don't unless it's for a hospital appointment. So yeah, hello the beginning of recovering from this major anxiety problem which has been controlling my life. It just appeared out of nowhere and took a grip hence why COURTZMELV was on major hold for a while. But this is a start and a step forward for me. :)
