Statement Blouse with Comfy Jeans and Kitten Heels (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

The one thing i’ve been on the hunt for this season is nice tops. Blouses in particular. I have a lot of sweaters and t-shirts (mostly stripes, last count was approx 25 striped tops, i may need a stripe intervention!) but i have hardly any nice blouses, shirts or pretty tops.

I had looked on a few sites and found nothing that i really liked, after browsing for a while i clicked on Zalando and suddenly I had a cart full of pretties that were all major contenders for purchases. I love that they have ranges that aren’t on the high street here, but equally have some favourite brands too, like this blouse. This blouse is from River Island but i hadn’t actually found it on there, or at least it hadn’t caught my eye. But on Zalando, well i loved it instantly because, well, red, lace, paisley print and pussy bow, whats not to love? Its everything i could have wanted in a top. And like i said there was more than just one top that i wanted (more on that next week!). So as well as the lovely blouse i added in these jeans with interest, the red stripe just makes these perfection don’t you think, and some on trend kitten heels which are proving to be a fab little shoe; i felt lady like yet comfy in these smart pointed shoes and i really just love that contrast between relaxed jeans and smart shoes. 

So i shall be on a mission to get a few more gorgeous tops in my wardrobe (when im not on the #NoSpendOctober) and i know exactly where i’ll be going to get them.

Do you shop at Zalando very often?

I Highly recommend if you haven’t before giving them a go.

And do you own lots of nice tops?

    I love how the red top matches the stripe on your jeans, it's a really nice pairing! 🙂

    I know what you mean about the hunt for nice tops too – sometimes my tops just feel a little too casual and I want something that's a bit dressier.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely week.

    I had never heard of that shop but it seems nice! Your top is really pretty, the lace could've been a bit too much mixed with the fun pattern but it actually looks amazing!

    I very rarely buy tops. I'm either usually in a dress or buy statement skirts and then just pair them with something rather plain and boring up top. Think I'll take a look at Zalando though and see what's on offer. Thanks for the tip x

    Rachel, this post is right up my alley! As taking account of my Fall wardrobe, I realized i didnt have a lot of blouses either. i have sweaters, jackets, but not alot of dressy tops. i lOVE the one you are wearing the deep red, the bow, and the lace details… perfect as i like special details on a blouse. Great kitten heels too!

    You look gorgeous in red. The print of this blouse is gorgeous and the flared ruffle sleeves are right on trend for fall. I love this paired with the jeans you chose and also think it'd be great with a skirt or dressy pants and a blazer for work too!

    I love your blouse, the lace sections on the sleeves are so pretty. The red stripe on the jeans go perfectly with it. I've never shopped at Zalanado, I'll have to take a look!
