After gazing longingly at my ever-increasing collection of 'spring clothes' piling up on my curtain rail (or what I like to refer to as my 'new in' rail - who needs to actually be able to see out of their window anyway?) I decided to reject this vile weather and embrace the fact that it is now officially spring by repelling the snow and brightening up the world with some pink.
This sleeveless blouse is a new addition and now, a new favourite. (Although I do feel I look a bit reminiscent of an Easter Egg with my giant head perched atop an oversized bow...)
Jacket / Shoes : ZARA. Blouse : French Connection. Faux Fur Stole / Trousers : Topshop. Gloves : River Island.
I panic-bought this blouse on Oxford Street at 10o'clock in the morning on Tuesday, when I was due to be participating in a styling challenge for 'More!' magazine at 11o'clock. For once, I cannot blame my lack of organisation and bad timekeeping, but instead I shall point my rather disappointed finger at ASOS who failed to fulfill their promise of 'next evening delivery'. Meaning 1. I spent the evening before gazing out of the window waiting for my parcel with sad puppy eyes (you may suggest I should have created a plan B... no! I reject plan B. I only settle for plan A.) and 2. I had to style an entirely new outfit on the morning of the actual event. Uh-oh. In the end though, it all went as well as it could have gone and I'm looking forward to sharing the results with you in April!
