I’m continuing with two posts per week at the moment (Tue & Thu) as I’m short on time and don’t want to burden myself to make sure I create enough content for 3 posts when it just isn’t possible. I always strive to deliver quality over quantity and hopefully by reducing the number of posts, I can maintain the same level of quality throughout.
Today’s outfit features one of my favourite white lace blouses I’ve ever owned which is a big deal. I have a lot of white lace in my collection but there’s something different about this one. First of all it’s short sleeves which is rare. Most of my others are long sleeved. Secondly, it’s a combination of lace and ruffles which is very flattering as it creates shape and adds femininity. Lastly, it pretty much goes with everything. High waist shorts, midi skirts, jeans or trousers – it always seems to be a perfect match which makes it the ideal piece for my wardrobe. Oh and it’s currently on sale for £14 so best to snap up quickly if you like it – direct link below.
On this occasion, I’ve paired with a white and blue stripe tailored blazer. I’ve had this blazer for years but for some reason I’ve only worn it once or twice. It’s such a smart blazer that it doesn’t really look right with a simple t-shirt plus being predominately white, I feel a plain white tee underneath just doesn’t work. Unless I’m straight off the plane and gloriously sun kissed in which case anything looks good but it’s one of those ones that doesn’t get the exposure it deserves.
On Friday before heading to work I had the classic ‘I have nothing to wear’ moment – don’t judge, we’ve all been there. This is the combination I decided upon. I love when those moments turn in to an outfit combination you wear again and again and even more so when it results in something that hasn’t been wore for ages, getting plenty of wear. It’s a win win situation.
Now on to the jeans which are new. I love the light wash colour, it’s so fresh for summer. I’ve been so fed up with my jeans lately, I feel like they’ve all reached the past it stage at the same time and jean shopping is actually the one type of shopping I don’t enjoy. I always feel terrible about myself trying on different size and shapes of jeans. High waist are my favourite but I can’t always get the right colour, fit, waist to hip ratio or length without having to roll them up a hundred times. I tend to avoid low cut jeans these days as I do have big hips and I just don’t feel comfortable in them anymore. Mid rise are usually fine but again getting the right ratio or colour is difficult. All in all I feel jean shopping exhausting which is probably how you’re feel reading this post if you’ve made it to this point.
The shoes and bag have been on the blog a gazillion times. Being grey, they go with everything and therefore naturally get a lot of wear.
