What I Wore: I Like Horses - Wear Your Wardrobe 04.

This is the fourth and final (see part one here, part two here & part three here!) outfit I have put together as part of the Wear Your Wardrobe challenge set by the team who run Most Wanted, the lifestyle magazine from Voucher Codes. It's safe to say I had the best time picking out staple items to refresh my existing wardrobe and it has definitely taught me a lot about shopping smarter!

Blouse: MatalanSkirt: Vero Moda. Cardigan: H&M.
Bag: MatalanHeart Ring: Scape Jewellery. Ruby Ring: Studio 59. Shoes: Primark.

For my last outfit I knew I wanted to find something cute that I could wear with this skirt from Vero Moda. This is one of my absolute favourite skirts, I think it's super flattering but the only way I ever wear it is with a white plain tank top and I knew there must be a much more fun way to wear such a classic piece. As I was browsing the aisles of Matalan I spotted this blouse with a super sweet horse print in the distance and I immediately knew I had to make it mine. I just couldn't resist the print, even if my boyfriend did insist on singing the I love horses jingle over and over all the way around the shop. I'm not convinced he is actually a 27 year old man, 7 years old at heart!

I adore the way this shirt fits, the double Peter Pan collar is super adorable and it has little cap sleeves making it perfect for the warm weather. I've popped on the same H&M cardigan from yesterdays post because I love the way the blue compliments the lilac and a pair of tights because even though it's June, it certainly doesn't feel like it! I like how versatile this shirt is, I'll be wearing it just as much in the autumn & winter time as I will be during the spring and summer! Lastly I added this Bright Tote Bag in a gorgeous turquoise colour also from Matalan which I really love. It's so roomy inside, I can pretty much fit in everything but the kitchen sink inside it which is perfect for me because I do like to carry around a ridiculous amount of bits and bobs! I think this will make a perfect summer bag, and for only £8 I thought it was a bit of a bargain!

How would you style this blouse? I would love to know!

  1. What a cute outfit! I like how you used the cardigan with it. And to answer your question the only change I would personally have done is probably wear a white skirt or beige.

    Have a good day! x

  20. I'm kind of in love with your hair. And the shirt skirt. The tutorials floating around Pinterest make it look so easy to make one of these, but they don't take lack of sewing skills into account. Would love to find one in the store and save the headache!
