Hello my sweet people! How great is your week going so far?
I'm hoping to have a night free of firework displays pounding away at the first glimpse of dusk. It's been quite a year for Guy Fawkes firework displays - they've been set off relentlessly from Friday through to last night. They seem to be bigger, better and more amazing than ever before. Certainly noisier!
My house is near to many big organised fund-raising displays and I get 360° views from the windows. Fortunately, Bertie the cat is pretty cool with pyrotechnics.
But let's talk about another firecracker. My hearted 💕 berry blouse!
Here's how I've been putting it though it's paces.
The sparks have been flying off my hearted 😍 blouse from Primark, so much have I been wearing it.
A bum-covering shirt in an easy care fabric is proving to be the ideal top when wanting something for my upper end of smart casual.
Especially this time of year. This type of shirt is perfect for wearing with jeans, and this berry hearts 😘 shirt has already found its bestest friend for the winter, these berry coated leggings from Next. I cannot sing their praises enough!
My third piece here was a berry cardi, bought last winter - good call, Pout, as the restaurant on this night was a little on the chilly side, and we're not talking AC!
The white hearts 💟 design just about saves me from being one gigantic walking talking berry!
Taupe boots (Jones) claw back some of the berriness too.
On a slightly warmer day, a jumper and court shoes can be worn.
A daytime smart casual look is achieved with this uber cosy jumper from Primark as the shirt collar and tail pop out from inside the jumper.
The blouse has its edgy moments.
Or tucked in to black jeans. This is what I chose for my evening meet up, I think it worked better.
Black biker and chunky heel boots finish my granny-edgy look.
Hopefully I've given you a few ways to put together shirty outfits for this time of year. I've also found a way to use up a lot of emojees, by using one every time I mentioned 💗, which is often because that's what this blouse is all about - me wearing my 💖 on my sleeves and on my bodice too!
Do you have a recent autumn purchase that's pulling at your heart 💝 strings right now?
A la perchoine,
