If 2016 was all about the cold shoulder, then 2017 is all about the sleeve and it was the sleeves of this blouse that caught my eye. A simple shape, the long bell sleeves and contrast piping, not to mention the gorgeous bow detail on the back of this blouse elevate it into being something rather special and perfect for the dinner date for which I wore it.
It’s sheer but comes with a separate black shell top which could be swapped for something strappier or eliminated all together if one is feeling brave, though the near-freezing temperatures here made for an easy decision on this occasion.
My black and white hounds check shoe boots are from Lotus Shoes. The patent toe and heel add a sophisticated touch and as with all Lotus footwear, they’re beautifully made and very comfortable. I absolutely love them,
The black leather-look diamante bracelet is from the brand new range at Lizzy O. Because of the sleeve detail, I decided that one was enough, but it comes in a variety of colours which look stunning when stacked together.

I’m looking forward to styling both the blouse and the shoes differently and to using this location again for my blog photographs. It’s a nice contrast to the back garden which I’ve tended to use of late, (for convenience), and also the park or canal side. It’s difficult to find anything more “urban” in the immediate vicinity so I’m very happy with this.
And… didn’t my boyfriend do a brilliant job with the photography?
