Hey guys, after a few weeks off from the blogging game, I'm back tonight with this sweet shirt. I've just recently returned from Spain, so during my travels, I took the opportunity to shoot this killer summer shirt! I think everyone needs this piece in their wardrobe this season. I shot this look last week whilst exploring the streets of Barcelona. I loved this city, I really tried to experience everything the city had to offer - which consisted of Patatas Bravas, Patatas Bravas and more Patatas Bravas!

The shirt is made by a brand called Mr Wood - a London-based clothing brand, who's highly decorative and statement motif shirt range, make for the perfect holiday statement! Their shirt collection has been inspired by the best motifs around. They stock a range of cool shirts in a variety of prints to suit every taste. Each shirt is limited edition with only 63 being made - they sure do make the ultimate statement.

The story behind the brand is something I found very relatable. I'm going to give it my best to describe how it all started for them. Mr Wood had a favourite shirt he held close to his heart, a vintage late 70's piece with a beautifully designed motif - a shirt in which you simply didn't just come across everyday. This favourite piece of his was worn all of the time, through the good and the bad until the shirt began to show signs of wear, fading and ripping at the seams. I understand how it feels to become emotionally connected to a piece of clothing, Mr Wood simply couldn't let go of all of those years, so he cut out the last surviving square panel of the shirt's fabric and still uses it as a handkerchief to this day. I found this story totally relatable - knowing full well how much one item can mean so much!

I loved so many of the motif's online, but decided to go with this one. It's like a Mexican Day Of The Dead Skull, with some of the sculls even knocking back a beer, they couldn't be more like me! The shirts colour and pattern is very cool, I've not seen a cooler skull pattern shirt this season! The yellow and red colour palette used on the shirt is something I'd not normally go for, but when you're on holiday, the bolder the better right? I think this shirt is such a cool statement to wear - especially in warmer climates!

Mr Wood's shirts come in two sizes: medium and large.
I'm near enough six foot and I normally go for a small but since this size wasn't available I rooted for the medium, as I thought wearing this shirt one size bigger would give for a cool and relaxed vibe - a look which I always sport whilst abroad. The cut of the shirt allows you to easily achieve an effortless look, especially when worn open. Paired with a simple black tee, I wanted the main focus of my outfit, to be all about that killer palm tree / skeleton / Southern American vibe!

Mr Wood London is a brand born out of one man’s obsession for pattern, and his belief that everyone should own at least one statement shirt. I know I have mine for the summer and I'm certain I'll wear it for many more summers to come!

Cheers to Mr Wood for kindly giving me this shirt -
