A blouse obsession …

A blouse obsession …

Spring is here, or so I’m told!
The nights are definitely getting lighter and, although I’m no where near ready to pack away my winter coats, I am swapping the turtle necks for something a little more breezy.
Every spring I go through a transition period; exchanging black tights for nude, closed toe courts for peep toes and sandals, and I fall in love with blouses.

 I don’t know why spring always calls for a pretty blouse but this year this ASOS Curve kimono blouse ticks every obsession of mine – it’s floral, white, belted at the waist and as versatile as hell.

Priced at £32, this isn’t one of the cheaper blouses on the market but the subtle structuring of the piece make it worthwhile.  There are soft pleats across the chest so its designed to accommodate the fuller figure and the belted waist is enough to define your silhouette without restricting.
As you can see, the deep v-neck falls very low so I’ve worn a cami underneath to prevent over-spilling boobies.  The deep v does have a purpose though – it balances the kimono sleeves and creates a very flattering long and lean silhouette.
The blouse is fairly long in length which is perfect for hiding the muffin top above my jeans.
The material is fairly light weight which means it will be perfect with shorts come the summer months.  It is also fairly translucent, but this doesn’t bother me as the low neckline necessitate the wearing of cami beneath anyway.
I bought this piece in a size 18 and would say it comes up fairly true to size.  I’ve paired the top with my indigo skinny jeans from Next and my new blue points from Dune.
The shoes are my latest pride and joy, and although they don’t look overly comfortable they’re actually quite slipper like.
Do you have a spring obsession that crops up year after year?  I’d love to hear all about it!

    Aren't they great … now I just have to learn to trot in them (I've already learnt to walk but trotting is a whole other level of mastership).
