Blouse: Primark
Dress/Skirt: H&M
Shoes: H&M

I seem to have a bit of an obsession with semi-sheer chiffony shirts at the moment, they seem to be all I’ve bought recently! I liked this one because of the big collar and the ruffle details at the bottom, plus it was the last one left on the rail and just happened to be in my size so I felt obliged to buy it. I never really wear white/cream clothes but I really like this blouse and I think it looks good with a monochrome outfit and bright lipstick. Although I do feel a bit like I’m wearing a school uniform or something haha, but I like this outfit anyway!

I also bought this H&M top recently and honestly it’s the best £3.99 I’ve ever spent. It’s long enough for me to wear as a dress/skirt so it’s perfect for layering under shirts or floaty tops instead of a vest top and bodycon skirt. It’s also great for more casual outfits as it covers your bum if you’re wearing leggings. Definitely think I’ll be going back to pick up another one of these, and maybe some of the other colours too.

Looking at these photos has also made me realise how long my hair is, usually I wear dark/black tops so I don’t really notice but it’s really obvious against the white! I kind of want to get it cut or change the style but I’m not really sure what I want to change it to. I’d quite like to get it cut shoulder length again but I’ve been growing it for like 3 years so I’m scared. It’s just so boring at the moment, all I ever do is straighten it. Really want to buy the Enrapture Totem styler but I’m trying to save money at the moment, boo!

Are you a fan of chiffon shirts and blouses?

  • Love the blouse Gillian you look so pretty xxx

  • You look fabulous! I typically don't wear too many white/cream/beige tops either but I really like to pair black and white, or black and white with another color. The top looks really great on you and has a flattering shape to it, I sometimes struggle with tops like these having an unflattering shape. I also have long hair and can't help but feel bored with it but I get a lot of compliments and it took a long, long time to grow it this long, it feels like the minute I cut it I will want the long locks back. On that note, I think you have really pretty hair. Oh, I meant to ask, what lipstick are you wearing here?? It is a gorgeous shade.

    I'm the same, i've been growing my hair for about seven years and all I seem to do it straighten it or tie it up in some messy look. But I dread the idea of getting it cute.

  • Rachael says:

    *cut. Darn typo.

  • Bits & Bows says:

    Your outfit is lovely. I love the idea of of the h&m dress rather than wearing bodycon skirts all the time. And the collar on that shirt is beautiful 🙂

    Such a cute blouse, love this outfit! 🙂 You're hair is lowly – mine was down to my hips lat year, then I got it chopped to just above my shoulders, I was traumatised! Haha. Why don't you try a semi-permanent dye for a wee change? Xo

  • Caroline says:

    you look lovely 🙂 i have this blouse too & am also addicted to buying pretty sheer blouses from primark! your hair is so nice, if my hair was as long as yours i'd definitely get the enrapture totem. apparently you can get them with slightly damaged packaging on ebay for £35 so i'd try to hunt one down on there xx
