Oh pretty blouses, why has it taken me so long to discover you? I follow a lot (seriously, it’s obscene) of OOTD blogs, instagrams and tweets and recently blouses just seem to be popping up here there and everywhere. They are being worn with the obvious shorts/skirts/trousers combos but more excitingly to me they look so great teamed with cute pinafores and under dresses. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world of blouse wearing! Plus they look just as good being worn for work as they do for play. The blouse, dear reader, is an all rounder.
I finally took the plunge into blouse world after seeing this one from Ever Ours featured by Amy from The Little Magpie blog. Once I visited the Ever Ours website I went on a bit of a blouse buying frenzy and had to have a little sit down and a cup of tea afterwards. That website is full of such lovely things!
I mean seriously, this blouse has umbrellas on it and possibly the greatest collar I’ve ever seen and it’s only £18! What’s not to love?
After all this excitement, Victoria and I went on a little blouse wearing excursion over the bank holiday weekend. It was at this point we discovered that they are the perfect thing to throw on after a long day of basking in the sunshine.
Victoria’s puuurfect blouse (sorry) is from Modcloth and she wore it with shorts from Dorothy Perkins, tights from M&S, a satchel from Florence & Fred and shoes from H&M. My heart print blouse is from Ever Ours and I wore it with a skirt from Bath based boutique Instant Vintage, an M&S satchel and shoes from Shellys.
I am now trying to track down the perfect pinafore to wear with my new purchases!
