Ruffles and Red

Blouse, Jeans, Shoes: TOPSHOP
In this period of unpredictable weather, a blouse is the perfect go-to staple to pair with some jeans and a pair of comfy pumps, throw in a light-weight jacket and you're prepared come rain or shine!

I always fall victim to a beaut blouse and this Topshop statement blouse really caught my eye with its oversized ruffle detail, as well as the oh so on-trend wrap tie waist adding a sense of Japanese kimono style (teamed with origami-like ruffles), which I also think is fabulous in poplin FYI. I mean, it would be rude to not to wear white in my post-holiday tanned state so resistance to purchase was not apparent on this occasion!

To add a touch of Kansas' darling Dorothy to proceedings, I styled the look with some 100% leather red patent pumps, also from Topshop (note these are available in size 3 and 8 online but I picked up my pair in the Oxford Circus store so get hunting!). Gucci is abso' killing it this season, and the gold dainty buckle detail as well as slim fit really reminded me of Gucci's infamous "Jordaans" (if only I could afford the real deal at the splurge price of £540!). I'm ordinarily not one to opt for patent accessories but red and patent tend to go hand-in-hand so it was an inevitable "why not?" situation when it came to paying at the till point. Oh, and at the bargain price of £20 (£45 reduced to £25 and then 20% off sale- which is still on btw!), it would have been rude not to! 

In beauty related chatter, I teamed the red patent pumps with a red lip and rent nails (the Shellac is still in tact post-holiday, hoorah for Shellac!). Oh, and also not forgetting my go-to silver jewellery, including my Cluse watch, COS bangle (now £15 in the sale reduced from £29) and Pandora rings.
