An Instant Wardrobe Update + WIWT - Military & Florals




Morning ladies today I thought it would be good to look at something I class as an item that's perfect for breathing new life into any wardrobe & that's the humble blouse/shirt.

For me an instant way of updating my look is by investing in a few new tops for the coming season.  Preferably ones that are a little bit different in terms of detailing or perhaps pattern that can be worn day or night - teamed with flats & jeans for a day out or equally dressed up with heels, a blazer & leather trousers of a night.  They really are my 'go to' most days & can seriously make the simplest of outfits.  Not to mention they really come into their own for nights out when you're not sure what to wear.

In fact I've already invested in some stunning blouses this season, some of which I've included in my edit from the high street above & as you can see there's lots of stunning beauties currently available to tempt us.  Just click on any of the above images for further details.  I defy you not to find at least a couple that get you wanting to 'click that button' ;-)

Back to today & I'm breaking out a maxi dress for a light lunch with hubby as we're celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary :-)  So I'm teaming this pretty floral shirt dress with an old military jacket, grey ankle boots (not sure how I've managed without these in my life!) & my stunning new red across body bag.

Off out later this evening for an anniversary dinner with the two wonderful men in my life so will post an outfit pic on Instagram later.

In the meantime I'd love to know your views on my picks above.  Which is your favourite & are there any that have got your fingers twitching?!  And do you like me find them perfect for helping you fall back in love with your wardrobe basics?  Perhaps I've missed a beauty that you think should have been included in my edit, if so I'd love to hear.

Happy 'hump' day ladies.... the weekend is in sight!

See you tomorrow.

  1. Happy anniversary, Jane! Lucky you to be able to have a few cheeky glasses of wine on a hump day. I'll raise my diet coke to you and hubby this evening.

    1. Aww thanks Mary you're very kind. It certainly makes a nice way to spend a Wednesday although think I'll be in for a shock in the morning when I get up for running at silly o'clock after a late one tonight!
