New season blouses

For someone who has lived in dresses for years, with only the occasional foray into separates, I have oddly found myself obsessed with blouses. All I seem to be looking at in shops at the moment are blouses and its variants. I keep imagining myself looking chic but with a little quirk like this photo from Garance Dore or channeling a little Jill Sander SS11 like this.

I’ve had an urge to streamline my look a little and want chic black trousers, with a loose silk blouse tucked in, a statement bracelet and maybe a bit of leopard print via my handbag...oh, and either bright red lips or nails!

However, given that I’m on the path to getting a bigger and bigger pregnancy bump, I’m not sure how ‘streamlined’ my look is going to be! But I do know that when I eventually buy a few maternity pieces, black trousers and a blouse will be on the list...perhaps even the Topshop number featured below!

Other blouses that have been catching my eye…

Zara printed blouse with bow - £22.99 

Asos pussybow blouse - £30

Topshop maternity feather print open back blouse - £36

Topshop navy sheer spot shirt - £38

Oasis parasol print blouse - £40

Warehouse animal print swing blouse - £40

Reiss military shirt - £55 (down from £110)

Whistles Ginny shirt - £95


  1. ooh I like the Asos blouse.... Good post - I'm desperate to for Spring to slightyl show it's head and to be able to wear one less layer.

  2. I like the animal print blouses - that is a good idea. I've been inspired to look for satin shirts since watching Zen on TV. The girlfriend keeps wearing pencil skirts and satin blouses to work every day. Think she must have a different one for every day of the week!

  3. I know - I cannot wait to remove a few layers! For now I may just have to try and layer a cardigan or blazer on top to keep warm. I've spotted a new favourite blouse...this swallow print number from Warehouse:
