Burgundy Blouse | 23 While I'm 23

I know you're probably sick to death of hearing about my 23 While I'm 23 list by now! However, the update posts are going to be coming in thick and fast as I have some catching up to do! I won't lie, I kind of regret making one of my 23 things 'blog about everything on this list' - I've literally been putting off writing this one for months! But the time has come.

Back in January 2018, I bagged myself a date. My first one since having Charlie. Obviously, I had nothing to wear so I dragged myself out shopping to find something. Eventually I found a cute burgundy blouse in New Look. I tried it on, loved it, bought it. But the date never happened. The blouse was banished to the back of my wardrobe, still loved but unworn.
 (I have no idea how to take photos of clothes)



Towards the end of the year I was feeling very fed up with having this blouse and never wearing it. I still thought it was really cute though, and wasn't ready to part with it yet. So, I made it a goal: wear the blouse before I turn 24.

I know, it sounds ridiculous but it worked! I wore the blouse on Christmas day with a pair of black jeans and boots and felt lovely! It always surprises me how oversized it is, considering it's a smaller size than I currently wear anyway, but it's loose without being too big. My favourite kind of top!


Now I have worn it once, I'm definitely hoping to wear it again, and find other ways to style it. I'd love to wear it in a casual just popping to town kind of way but I feel like it's too smart for that! Either way, I'd love to wear it again before my birthday. Wish me luck!
