A Power Shirt and Passion4Fashion Linkup

Lately i have become found of what i have affectionately named, 'The Power Blouse'.
And what is a 'Power Blouse' i hear you ask.
Well, lately i have been finding the simplistic outfits the best outfits.
Take a beautiful blouse for instance, it is the easiest thing to just throw on and go and feel pretty good about it too.
Great for the office, day-wear or a night out, a workhorse of a blouse is why i've aptly named it 'The Power Blouse'.
And there's nothing like pairing your Power Blouse with a pair of faux leather trousers for added sass. Another current favourite.
I picked up this shirt when there were discount codes flying around, i kinda just fell for its dalmatian-esque print, which falls nicely in to my monochromatic love of late.
I added in a little sparkle with my favourite clutch and necklace, some berry coloured heels and lipstick and it was easy-peasy dressing.

Faux leather trousers: New look (Love these)
Berry Shoes: Primark

Do you own any 'Power Blouses'?

Shop the look:



  1. Your polka dot shirt is lovely and I like the statement clutch and necklace with it :)

  2. I love the color combinations in this outfit! That top looks so chic! :)

    I love these friday link-ups. I love looking at everyone's style!


  3. Hi Rachel! I've been looking forward to your link up all week! I'm not kidding. I had just a weird one. I couldn't find my groove all week long. Posting was slow, so I didn't have anything to link up until today. I hope you don't mind that I linked up four posts: three collabs with a theme and one DIY. Anyway, my family all returns to town today. I think I was thrown for a loop being solo. School trips were this past week.

    Anyway, on to you and this fabulous outfit! I love the polka dots. I have a similar top but my dots are smaller. I also really like your faux leggings--perfectly tight! I can't find mine, soooo, I'm off to remedy that.

    Thanks for the link up Rachel. I'm serious. I've been looking forward to it all week long!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

  10. Rachel knocks it out of the park yet again not just with a polka dot blouse, but with a dalmatian print POWER blouse!!!! I honestly don't think I've seen dalmatian print before (have I been under a rock?!), but I know I love it. The red lips, red heels and accessories all make this outfit soooo Rachel-perfect. =sigh=

    Have a fantastic weekend (you "doing" Halloween?) - thank you for hosting, oh gorgeous one!
