River Island Wrap Blouse and Strappy Boots.

I love this outfit! I've wanted a wrap blouse for a few weeks now and this baby (£30) by River Island ticks all the right boxes. It comes in 3 colours, (scary) lime, nude and black. I'm definitely planning on ordering the nude soon! This one is a size 8 and has the perfect fit, loose but not baggy, and longer at the back.

Blouse: River Island at ASOS - Jeans: Meltin' Pot - Boots: Next - Fedora: Accessorize - Necklaces: Blue Bayer NYC + Regal Rose

I wore it with an old pair of Meltin' Pot jeans, my new strappy leather boots from the Next sale and the navy fedora I had for my birthday. This blouse was destined to be worn with long necklaces so I threw on some of my faves and added a bit of finger candy.

I adore these boots. I ordered a 6.5 so they are a little big (I'm always a 6 in Next shoes) but I can deal with the unnecessary toe room because at £30 they were an absolute bargain. In other news, I'm having a miniature wardrobe crisis at the moment because I've gone down a jeans size. I'm now wearing all my skinny 'skinny jeans' haha. It's a pretty good excuse to shop but I can't wear 80% of my jeans wardrobe without them looking baggy in a bad way! I'm a girl who loves premium denim so I'm on the lookout for ridiculously crazy denim sales. Holla at me if you know of any!

Are you a fan of ballet wrap blouses? Do you like this look?
