After spending what felt like eternity in big knitted jumpers during this winter, I was in dire need for spring to arrive and drag the flowy blouses and light shirts right with it. Slight problem. I don’t have money. But I figured since I have not bought myself anything apart from food and the occasional subway ticket in the last few months, I decided I was allowed to spend a little bit on a new Spring wardrobe. Okay, a little more. But ASOS does 10% off for students, so you feel much better about spending all your money on clothes and live off pot noodles for the rest of the month. Or your life.
They are such light and flowy material. I have always had a bit of a problem wearing blouses because the sleeves and chestal area were always too tight, but if I got a bigger size it wasn’t fitted at the waist anymore and just kind of looked baggy and shapeless. And when I was younger I had a problem with sweat, which meant I was incredibly self-conscious and couldn’t wear anything with tight underarm areas. So, slowly I am getting my confidence back and pushing myself to try more fashion pieces I was always too self-conscious to wear. Go me! I actually enjoy wearing blouses and fitted shirts much more now, and I am getting really into the half casual, half professional look. Depending on the shoes and accessories I pair my blouses with, I can dress them up or down, how cool!
I also got a bit of a chunkier checkered blouse from Mango, which I sometimes wear tucked into trousers, but because it is also quite long in the back and not too fitted around the waist, I mostly wear it over a black tight mini skirt or bodycon dress.
I also saw this amazing mesh longline shirt by River Island online and.. well.., I HAD TO OWN IT! I was afraid the mesh would feel plasticy, but it is really soft and comfortable to wear. I usually wear a plain, black bodycon dress underneath it.
So, yeaaahh sure, I might be poor for the next few weeks, but at least I am ready for Spring, babyyyyy!
