STYLE: LONG FLOATY CHIFFON BLOUSE

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The moment I saw this long line blouse, I had to have it. It came in a few colours but surprise, surprise I settled on this duck egg blue. If you have been following this blog you will know I am partial to anything in the duck egg blue / mint green range. Obviously after buying it, I couldn’t wait to wear it. This is how I wore it on a recent night out.

This chiffon long line and hi lo blouse is from Vero Moda. I absolutely love the beading and sequins detail on the collar and shoulders.

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Because of this detail I decided not to wear a necklace, as I didn’t want anything to take away from it. I kept it simple with these earrings from Pulse Accessories. Under the chiffon blouse I wore a long line black vest top, also from Vero Moda and the leggings are from Swamp.

I didn’t wear a belt on the night because I liked the floaty feel of the look but you could easily add a belt if you wanted a little definition at the waist.

The pointed toe courts are from New Look. You’ve probably seen them in previous post and you are very likely to seen them in future ones because I am really into the pointed toe court trend at the moment.

The blazer is from boohoo.com and the clutch is a favourite of mine and its Michael Kors.

FRIDAY STYLE: CAPRI JEGGINGS, MIXING NEW WITH OLD

Last Saturday night was another beautiful warm night. I headed into town to meet a few friends and this is what I wore.

?????????????????????? ??????????????????????

The black Capri jeggings are a recent purchase from Zara (of course I bought them just before the sale).

???????????????????????????????

I have had this top for a long time and it is from a brand called Self Esteem (I don’t remember where I bought it). It just goes to show you that every now and then you should shop in your own wardrobe. Revisit some old items with a fresh perspective. It’s amazing how something old can look great with some new pieces.

These shoes are Enzo Aglioni and I picked them up recently in the sales. Pointed toe courts are everywhere at the moment and it looks like the trend will continue into the coming autumn and winter season. I suspect that they will be sticking around for quite a while as they look really classy with just about everything.

The necklace and earrings are from Pulse and I have had these for a few years also. When a local Pulse store closed, I stocked up on accessories during the closing down sale.

The jacket is from New Look. I tried a few different blazers with this outfit but none of them seemed right so I settled on the biker in the end. I carried the jacket around a bit as it was too warm for a faux leather biker but was glad I had it when it got a lot cooler later in the night.

The clutch is Michael Kors and has been in quite a few posts before like here, here and here
Did you ever find some old items in your wardrobe that look great with new purchases?
