A countryside dream

heritage look with blouse and pearls

I have to share this outfit which is what I wore at the weekend. It's only been captured in selfie form because the light was too low outside (boo).

I'm wearing a dream of a country blouse which is so sweet and would be one I would wear every week if it wasn't far too big. It billows in a notably unflattering way which is a crying shame and if one day soon I'm feeling uncharacteristically optimistic I might attempt a cut-and-shut job on it. This fuchsia jumper is delightfully soft and warm, despite the cut-outs to the neckline and upper arms. It has to be layered in a thoughtful way to get the best out of it. Both these items are recent charity shop finds but look like they were made to be worn together; I'll have to make sure I wear them together again. The plastic Primark pearls were precisely the perfect partner to wear plus my ever faithful green tartan scarf.

  1. Love this combination! Could you maybe try putting some darts into the blouse to make it smaller for you?

  5. You are in every sense the country girl. Love this. The pink fuchsia is lovely and so suits your colour tone. Miss you Sophie - will be thinking of you this Christmas <3 x x x
