It’s too hot to wear clothes. If I were to wear clothes, though, I imagine that this would be the outfit I’d be wearing. I received this blouse a couple of days ago and golly gosh it’s just about the best thing ever. I really love this blouse. This time, to avoid disaster, I’ve sized up to a large, and I’m pretty glad that I did. For the record, I’ve been having issues with blouses from China recently being too tight around my arms and that’s a super frustrating problem to have!
The blouse was a spur-of-the-moment purchase, and like most of my purchases of that kind, it turns out I’ve uncovered quite the gem. I can imagine wearing this blouse with several different things because of the variety of colours represented here. I can go with army greens, blues, reds, and mustard. I’ll be wearing this top often with jeans during Winter, too (it seems like it would lend itself very well to a nice dark pair of jeans). Today, however, I’ve paired this with a few other special gems in my closet and come out with quite a frugal little outfit here.
- Flag Printed Blouse – eBay, $11.50
- Brown Belt – ASOS, free with a dress
- Gold Watch – Present from Mikey
- Green, Blue, Red and Gold Bird Brooch – Unknown
- Red Vintage 100% Wool Skirt – Events, $8*
- Tan Heels with Broguing – Mollini, $4*
Total: $23.50 — Kind of a stupid estimate considering that the starred** items are op shop purchases, the belt and the watch were free/gifts, and the bird brooch I found just recently, nestled in a little metallic drawstring satchel on my back doorstep (WTF?). I’m not even kidding, I just found it sitting there like some kind of belated Christmas present from Santa Claus.
Alternatively, it could just be a migratory bird from one of the countries represented on my blouse. I’d sure like to think so!
