Fly away birdy......

I'm a big fan of the bird print, I have several pieces and inspired by A Monkey Fatshionista I decided to give my most favourite bird print piece an outing.

I own several blouses, I love how they look, but I have a terrible habit of buying them, and never wearing them because I always feel terribly over dressed in them, I struggle to make them feel "casual", so this is my attempt at just that, I'm calling it "casual blouse chic" (oh dear lord, get a grip!!).

Me looking slightly demonic!!

The blouse is from Dorothy Perkins (last year), the skinny jeans are Jeffery & Paula for Simply Be, it looks as though they are not doing jeans this season, but you can find very similar from Simply Be here and the boots are La Redoute although mine are over a year old, they have them again this year, I love them so comfortable, I have them in black too.

Better view of blouse
I don't know about you but I find winter frustrating because I have an outfit all planned out, then I have to cover it with a coat!! With this particular outfit I decided on a coat with 3/4 length sleeves so you could still see the blouse, I teamed it with a coral scarf for warmth and it picks out the coral in the blouse nicely too.

Wrapped up and ready to roll!
 

These boots were made for walking
 How do you like to wrap up for the colder months, is it all about warmth or does style come into it?

  1. It's all about warmth for me at this time of year! I cover up so much - I could pass for a hobo to be fair - no style, just plenty of layers! I love the pattern on the blouse though and it is a shame to have to cover it up to keep the cold out...boo! xx
