I'm still loving the floaty, drapey-ness of this blouse, not something I normally go for in tops. Wearing black underneath it today made me realise just how much of an impact the turquoise vest had on the colours when I first wore it here. In my minds eye, the blouse is a much more vivid blue, but thats just the effect of wearing it with turquoise. Wearing it belted, with a black vest underneath, the blue of the top is actually very dark. I never thought I'd be one to wear leggings, a) because they'd be super unflattering on my less than perfect legs, and b) because they just seemed too trendy/faddy for me, popping up all over the bloody place. However, with a blouse like this, I appreciate that a clean line is needed to counteract the volume up top. I am making an effort these days to try different silhouettes than I usually go for, so its only recently that I have found leggings useful. As long as the bum bum is covered, I'm willing to wear the pesky buggers (I realise that I am about 2 or 3 years behind with the whole legging thing).
