Blues and Cream

I've had this Asos Curve blouse for ages, but have never figured out an outfit to wear it with until now.

I've tried the blouse with jeans and shorts, but nothing was high-rise enough for the short length. Finally I tried a new skirt from Autograph with it. I think it works the best.

I teamed it with a cream cardigan that I thrifted. Sorry about the slightly blurry photos, my 7 year old didn't quite get it right today. He did a great shot of my blouse further down though.

I have a few issues with this blouse, came close to culling it from my wardrobe many times. I love the colour and the pattern, but have issues with the shape. I love the material, it's a cool light cotton, but the shape of the blouse is annoying. I don't like how it hangs around the bottom. It has a tie at the front, but it doesn't make a shape like a tied at the front shirt. 

My hair dye has been in a week of washes and it holding up well. It's a dark colour with a dark wine tint, I'm quite happy with it. Not as fun as the purple, but it's more low maintenance.

  1. Love the blouse/cardigan combo! You make me wish that I had bought the ASOS blouse when I had a chance. I wasn't sure if I'd like the tie front, but it looks really nice with the skirt.

  2. Thanks! Yeah I really like it with the cardigan, though the way they made the tie front annoys me a little. I would love a dress in this pattern. :-)

  3. I love your shirt, the pattern is so pretty! I like tie tops depending on the length, sometime it seems like they are made WAY too short.
