Rixo Star And Dot Blouse With Bootcut Jeans

Rixo stars and dot blouse with bootcut jeans

Once in a while I fall in love with a brand so wholeheartedly that I feel like every single item was designed for me. Rixo is one such brand. It had me at hello about two years ago when I had my head turned by its beautifully feminine dresses and the glorious way it mixes prints. Since then, I have coveted many a piece. Therefore, when I was in London last week, staying close to “Free as a Bird” the Rixo pop-up shop in Covent Garden, I couldn’t wait to go in and try a few things on.

I came away with a blouse which I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of. In fact, I wore it the following day for my goddaughter’s 21st birthday party. I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. Dressed up with velvet trousers and killer heels and dressed down with girlfriend jeans and star trainers. And, for smart casual occasions, with bootcut jeans and high-heeled ankle boots, like I did for the party here.

A word about these bootcut jeans first though. I have to be honest and say that I’m not quite sure about them. They fit beautifully and I do aquiesce that they’re flattering by virtue of their leg-lengthening properties. However, I haven’t yet got used to seeing myself in them after wearing skinnies and boyfriend jeans for over a decade. I bought them because I knew they’d work well with the blouse and I think they do give a collective nod to the seventies, a style influence that is hot right now. But I’m just not sure. Maybe a wide-legged jean would have been better.

I adore the Rixo stars and dot blouse though and perhaps should say here that this isn’t a sponsored post and that I bought it myself. And I have a feeling it won’t be the last purchase I make from this fabulous independent brand.

I like the tie fastened in a bow, but it can be worn untied too, or draped around like a scarf.

And don’t my engagement ring and double stars ring look fab with it?

And Finally…

Here I am with my goddaughter. A young woman as intelligent as she is beautiful and I couldn’t be more proud of her.

    I really love the jeans on you Lizzy – as you say, they are so flattering! I felt the same when I first switched over from Skinny though, so I get it. What a lovely young lady your goddaughter looks. Perfect blouse for the occasion xx Maria

      Oh thank you so much. Yes, it’s funny how we get used to seeing ourselves in certain shapes and silhouettes isn’t it. And yes, my goddaughter is a wonderful young woman and I’m very proud of her xxx

    Hi Lizzie I love all of your looks, but I agree with you on the jeans. I’ve felt the same many times and tried all sorts. I’d love to see you in the wide leg or maybe even a flare. I spotted Zara models wearing lovely flares and shirt combos lately and wondered if bootcut is coming back into fashion (hope not!). I still feel they have a touch of the ‘90s about them! But maybe you can convince us all otherwise :). You have great style. Love the Rixo brand too. And finally just wanted to say congratulations to you both on your engagement. P.s. I’m new to this posting lark lol

      Hi Alex, thank you so much for the lovely comment, the compliments and the congratulations too. I agree totally about the bootcut jeans having a touch of the 90s about them! I haven’t worn them since this post- I’ve gone back to the girlfriend fit! I wonder if I’ll grow to love them??!!! Love Lizzy xxxx
