Happy Wednesday and last day of January! This post was meant to be published yesterday but life got in the way, as it tends to do. You may recognise this lime green blouse from the Thrifty Six post a couple of weeks ago. When I bought it I thought I’d mostly wear it with some of my other pieces from The Hippie Shake, but it’s proving to be much more versatile than I anticipated.
Well, actually, I’m trying to find different ways to wear what I already own, rather than buying more. (I’m still buying a few things on Vinted because I’m addicted!) This blouse also solved a dilemma I’d had for months: what to wear with this green houndstooth jacket. I bought it from a charity shop back in the summer but I was a bit stumped when it came to styling it. The obvious choice would have been with an all black outfit, but you know I’m all about colour! The green of the blouse and the jacket are a pretty good shade match, so it seemed obvious to try them together. I like the contrast of the lime and black so I teamed them with black trousers and hat.
My earrings and bag are a slightly darker shade of green, but I don’t think it jars too much. The beaded handle helps to emphasis the black rather than the green. Instead of plain black boots, I chose these ones with a subtle leopard print that almost imitates the houndstooth check.
