Anchor blouse with blue 7/8 trousers

Anchor blouse with blue trousers 2
This blouse was a real lucky find. You have seen it before with my black and white striped pencil skirt. But I actually bought it to wear in leasure time looking nice and still being comfortable. This blouse achieves that.

Of course it is not comfortable to walk around on high heels in your spare time. Let’s be honest. So I wear ballerinas to walk comfortable too. Although I hate flat shoes as many of you know.  But necessity knows no law…

Granted, not that bad, but it took me a while before I could pick some decent photos.

Below: tell me (honestly), do you prefer this combination with high heels or ballerinas?[twocol_one]Anchor blouse with blue trousers 3[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]Anchor blouse and jeans 1a[/twocol_one_last]Isn’t it strange how long my feet look when wearing ballerinas? They seem to grow 3 sizes bigger.

I bet you didn’t.

    I love the blouse, the pattern is very pretty. The look, with skinny jeans, it’s beautiful. The heels are always elegant and favor a lot, but this set is perfect with the ballerinas.

      OK. That is good to hear. Not too bad than. And nice and comfortable at the weekend.

    I really like this blouse it is so airy and delicate, that is how I feel. I like the high heels for the only reason that I am jealous that you can wear high heels and I only ballerinas. Me bad girl. And yes I noticed the difference in pants but the way you wear your jeans I think they are both stylish.

      You are always too kind for me Marianne. Thank you.

    You are the winner! ( I didn’t noticed you were wearing different pants ) . . . your ballerinas are so cute and I find you are very nice with them. Have you ever wore ballerinas with a dress? They could work as well. . .
    The blouse has a delicate print and looks confortable.
    I also have the feeling of longer feet wearing flats!

      I hate flats. Ballerinas are sort of alright but never my favourite. I would not wear them with dresses. But being comfortable at the weekend is something I can appreciate. Besides I have to be nice to my feet once in a while.

      Thank you Ann. This might become one of my favourite GoTo outfits.

    That top was a great find. So unique.

      I agree with you. And I am very happy with it. You never know in advance whether the piece you bought is going to be terrific or the opposite.

  8. 25 August 2013 / 21:22

    Honestly, I think you can pull the outfit with both.
    Glad to be back.

      Do you? How funny. Have a look around in the sale for this one. It is by Marlene Birger.

    Love your blouse. It’s fresh and adorable. And – for once – I vote for the ballerina shoes though I am usually more pumps and heels. These ballerina are perfect with your trouser.

      I am glad that another “heel girl” is voting for the ballerinas. Can’t be that bad then.

    Love that shirt! The anchors are so cute, and look fantastic styled with the ballet flats and skinny jeans. You just look comfortable and classic… and classy. Perfect outfit for brunch, lunch & just about anything!!!

      I am indeed very pleased with it. You cannot really tell in the shop whether a piece of clothing (or shoes) is going to be a hit or not. Glad you like it too.

    I love this blouse and have a couple anchor print tops as well. I like this pairing with the flats more. It just gives a more casual laid back vibe.

      Thank you Susan. Our dog is a…… Korthals Griffon, There aren’t many of them. She is called Charlie and a big love in my husband’s life. She is a sporting dog, a retriever and a pointer. But we don’t hunt so she just runs around in woods and on the beach.
