#FrockSwapUK: Ranch Style


Can you believe these blue skies? Seriously wonderful here in the UK right now... not to sound like the voice of doom but apparently its going to change here back to grey and rain on Wednesday (yes i study the weather forecasts like you wouldn't believe.. i should have been a weather girl i tell you! that would have been cooool!)
So for now i am lapping up every single second of this beautiful sunshine.

This  lovely blouse and necklace are the things i received from the wonderful Erica in our first round of #FrockSwapUK. You can see Erica's original post HERE! I actually loved how Erica styled it, with the little black mini and denim jacket, and if this lovely blouse was staying with me a bit longer i would have styled it the a la Erica. But alas, this swapping malarkey is bitter-sweet as the goods have now been sent on to Donna and then they will make their way on to Debbie
I'm looking forward to seeing how the girls style it up too. 
Another parcel of goodies arrived on my doorstep this week, so i am very excited to get creative with some pieces that i probably would not have bought... It's going to be interesting!




 I like to call this look Ranch style, maybe it's the setting (which fyi isn't a ranch, just a road side lol!) Maybe its the little checked blouse tied with the dark jeans and the leather jacket, just need me some chaps and a bit of fringing and i could go rodeo style...yeehhaww! heehhee.
I have to say i am enjoying adding more blouses to my collection (more when the shopping ban ends... 31 days people!!) i just love remixing them with skirts, jeans or layered. They make for some good remixing which i am alll about right now.
I've gone from a wardrobe filled with just dresses to lots of versatile pieces.
Remixing is my new groove.
Are you a blouse/ shirt person?

  1. What a great idea! I love #frockswapUK I'd love to get involved if you're looking for more swapsters. Lilac is BIG news this spring. I love that you've taken it away from the girlie, girlie side of styling yet kept it feminine x
