Since I bought my first Sister Jane blouse earlier this year I’ve been regularly looking on eBay for any others that take my fancy. I bought a second one on Vinted, a few months later so made a mental note to check on there regularly too. You can “favourite” items, a bit like adding them to your watch list on eBay, except it’s not an auction. It seems that sellers expect – and welcome – offers. Likewise, they will often send offers to people who’ve “favourited” that item. I’ve scored quite a few bargains on eBay that way too, so it’s always worth “favouriting” something you like or adding it to your watch list. If you feel cheeky making a lower offer, sometimes you just need to wait and it will come to you instead!
Anyway, that’s what happened with this Sister Jane geometric print blouse. I found it on Vinted, hit the heart icon and a few hours later I received an offer. Well, it would have been rude not to accept! It was the flowers on the collar and pearl embellished tie that really hooked me. I love the mix of yellow, black, grey and brown in the print. The shirred hem and cuffs are really nice details too.
When I bought it I hadn’t really thought about what I’d wear with it. I often hear stylists say that you should envisage any new purchase being worn at least three ways. However, I’m more of an impulse buyer; if I like it I buy it and worry about the finer details later! Luckily, I didn’t have to think too hard about this combination because these yellow trousers were on the top of a pile of clothes I’d been meaning to pack away until the summer. But there’s no reason why I can’t wear yellow trousers in winter – in fact I think the dull, misty weather calls for colourful clothes to brighten up the day.
I didn’t want to wear dark coloured boots because they would have looked too heavy. When in doubt opt for metallics, they go with everything. As luck would have it, I bought these gold boots in a local boutique recently. They match my crossbody bag that I bought in Madeira perfectly. I left the black and white bag strap on as the bees compliment the yellows in the outfit. So that’s one easy way to wear this Sister Jane geometric print blouse. I think it would also look great with high waisted, wide leg jeans, as well as black, grey or brown trousers. That’s four more outfit options already!
