Red Shirt with Leather trousers (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

It was love at first sight with this red blouse; Grandad style neckline, stunning red colour and a pretty floral print equals b-e-a-utiful. It was like it was the perfect option for Valentines day, for a date that didn’t quite pan out (kids+life means nothing ever goes to plan, am I the only one?). But no biggy as i still donned my outfit anyway and strutted about in it regardless, just ‘cos I bloody loved it, and that was good enough for me.
I paired the shirt with my little military blazer, my faux leather trews  and my so-worn-but-so comfy little Chelsea boots and felt put together, sassy (its the faux leather trews I tell ya, its just something about them that brings the sass), smart and yet totally comfortable.
I mentioned in my last post that I may have accidentally bought two blouses within the space of a week, well this was blouse number one, and totally different to number one you’ll agree, right?
I kinda think this one could look great with some light flared jeans and tan accessories, or one fashion step further, cropped kick flare jeans… oooohh, me likey.
Don’t you just love when a new piece really brightens up your wardrobe. I know I do.

Outfit Details:
Military Jacket
Leather trousers
Red blouse
Similar boots

Well I obviously have a shirt addiction, but I’m totally ok with that… Have you bought anything lovely lately that really make you happy?

    That is such a great shirt on you! Red is definitely your colour, the print is really nice also. It looks great between the black layers. Sorry your plans didn't work out, but at least you looked great all day πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the link up!

    OMG Rachel you look so good in leather trooz… I now "need" a military jacket because of you, hehe!! I love the red blouse being longer than the jacket, it's a look that works so well but I'd not have thought to layer long and short like that. You hair is looking the bomb btw, I just ❀️‍ it!!!!!!

    Have a lovely weekend hun, stay dry (if you can)!

    You are a sassy little minx Ms Rachel πŸ˜‰ I've always loved you with a red lip. Looking gorgeous as ever xxx

  18. February 24, 2016 / 8:56 pm

    I have to admit I've recently bought a pair of faux leather jeans myself and do feel a tad foxy in them. I think that black and red really suits your complexion and hair colour, but the icing on the cake has to be that pop of red lipstick – wonderful matching!
