The New Look scalloped edge blouse

Scalloped edges on clothing items resonate with me in the same way as studs on leather accessories. I see it. I have to get it.

I saw this New Look blouse during a casual pop-in to New Look and I was beside myself. It was such a perfect piece in my eyes. Scalloped collar, detail down the front, silver buttons, an ivory colour. It was just perfect.

I wore it today and I will admit, I also wore it yesterday. This is how I get about blouses like this. Especially ones that are washable :)

I think I like the prim factor of it the most - it looks quite nice all buttoned up but then you could pair it with a skirt/short shorts for a nice juxtaposition.

It is a very sheer top so I paired it with a black body. You could go for a flesh toned piece if that's more your thing. 




Shirt: New Look
Trousers: Miss Selfridge

Yesterday I went to the Grand Prix practice sessions in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi and wore it untucked....



NB: It's really hard to do outfit of the day photos when there are tons of people around!

I was never really into motor racing until I heard the cars 2 years ago. The sound is deafening and exciting and so this is my second Grand Prix. Cannot wait for the proper race tomorrow! Even though it''s a done deal for Vettel I will forever cheer on Jenson Button ;p

Here are some random snaps...

PS. Been wearing Voyage d'Hermes for the last few days and it's is just amazing. It's the grown up D&G Light Blue. The most refreshing fragrance I may have ever tried.  If you want a better review let me know!

  1. The blouse is gorgeous, would be very interested if it comes in different colours. New Look is amazing for blouses.

    I caught up on the first 2 episodes on the Five TV reality programme with Tamara Ecclestone, suddenly I'm interested in the sport!

  5. Lovely blouse. Is that a new watch? Formula 1 can be quite interesting and hypnotic to watch. So much money in it too! Crazy. The indian one was so expensive lots of the locals couldnt afford to go, which I think it sad. I guess it's liek the UK and the Olympics!

    P.s. finally got round to doing my what's in my bag video. On my blog if you want to have a look :) xx

  8. @Ghin - ah i havent seen that show yet but you bet, I have got it in mind as something to get round to watching :)

    @Patricia - ugh I had a gelish manicure and i actually hate it because she did three layers of pink smoothie and its just too bloody pink! may paint over it with some Particuliere soon.

    @AspirationsofGlam - ooh never tried that!

    @Computergirl - it's a crazy sport in terms of financial investment. Look forward to seeing your video:)
