The Perfect Summer Blouse

The Perfect Summer Blouse

If there’s one shop I have been LOVING this summer it’s got to be New Look, It’s always been somewhere I’ve liked to shop but every time I look on the ‘New In’ section online at the moment my card takes another bashing.

One thing I find it so good for is staple pieces, from jumpsuits, dresses, paperbag waist trousers, you can dress them all up or down for whatever the occasion may be. Let’s just take a minute to talk about this blouse though..

I love the buttons down the front, I have seen this style everywhere lately on dresses and skirts and it instantly catches my eye, it just adds a bit of extra detail & interest.

The fit of this top is really nice, I prefer how it looks tucked in to a nice pair of high wasted jeans or paperbag waist bottoms, it gives it a lot more shape. I wouldn’t describe it as cropped but its certainly not as long as I normally prefer my shirts to be if I’m not tucking them in, it’s been a loooong time since I’ve worn a cropped number without some high waisted trousers.

Pale pink has always been my favourite colour, its neutral enough to go with different patterns and tones so again such an easy wear. I also own 4 other versions of this top (yep no.1 fan) there are soo many colours online and some of them differ slightly in style. The mustard & navy ones I have don’t have the pocket on the front and have a v-neck rather then a collar. I’ve got an off white one which also doesn’t have the collar but is a body fit which makes it handy for tucking in and lastly my other favourite is leopard print. The leopard print (which by the way is another HUGE love of mine this summer..blog post coming soon!) one has a tie front to make it cropped but I can’t say I’ve worn it like that.

Wishlist: Bathroom Update

I’m back, it’s been a while since my first post it’s just been crazy over December and the New Year..but I’m back.

So I moved house in June last year and we got all the main rooms we wanted decorated which I’m so happy with, but me being me I’m wanting to do more! With that I’ve decided to give the bathroom a bit of an update. I’m not going to re decorate it as its a nice neutral colour and honestly I can’t be bothered right now, but I thought adding a few new accessories in there is just what it needs. I’ve put together a little board of all the things I’m thinking about getting and thought I’d share it just incase any of you need some inspiration. I’ll link below where everything is from as well.
