The Perfect Summertime Blouse

With the first sign of brighter weather I was looking forward to sharing this with you……..

On a travel down to Essex to see the family, into the suitcase it went. And I have to say this blouse from FandF survived in the suitcase and came out wrinkle free, so this will be great for the holidays.This is also the first sign of the sandals on my feet, and it’s so nice not to be swaddled in socks and boots. Although can I just say, when I managed to take these pics it was bloody freezing!

I did want to share this fab find of a blouse though before it gets sold out. It ticks a lot of boxes.

1) Style. This has lace and bell sleeves, a big trend for this year,
2) It’s lightweight for summer and does not crease!
3) Colour. White will go with everything
4) Arm coverage and loose fitting, so very comfortable
5) Price £16.00 A bargain (you know I love a bargain!)

You can find it HERE

I teamed the blouse with my favourite Beige trousers and an old cross body bag.I love the lace trim running down the front and on the bottom. .
 The one thing I will say with lightweight blouses of this kind is what you wear underneath. A good fitting nude shade T shirt bra is perfect and there are no signs of what underwear I’m wearing. (I hate it when you can see all the bumps from detailed bras)

What are your favourite shades for colour this year ? I always have a fair share of beige and white in the wardrobe, It’s so easy to pair up with other colours. A bit of a habit of mine to wear these shades. I still like it but since I’ve been doing this fashion blogging it has made me think about colour a bit more…

    I saw earlier this post of yours but didn't have time to comment. I love the blouse, it looks very feminine and also your nude trousers look good.

    Such a pretty look Laurie! It's a great find. I can't imagine getting something that wrinkles, especially when I travel. I really would rather do things other than ironing hehe. xoxo Zuma

    The blouse is really pretty and super that it didn't crease in the suitcase! I can't even imagine getting the sandals out yet and I live in Portugal! It's still cold and raining!!
