Don’t these pictures look warm and sunny? Well truth be told, it was actually bloody freezing when Amy took these shots of me in Hyde Park. I always look at the weather report before I leave early each morning for work but on this day it was meant to be sunny and 18 degrees?!!
Anyway bitching about the weather aside, I actually had these shots taken as I was really keen to show off this totally uber cute blouse from H&M. I saw it just hanging there on a recent shopping trip and knew it was the one for me. Normally because I’m top heavy (30 HH), I would never go for something like this as there is a lot of focus on the general boob area and it’s not really a slimming shape. Having said that, I just fell for it’s shoulder frills, sweet look and the colour is SO Hamptons housewife!
When you try a shape you normally shy away from, I think it’s a good idea to work out what would balance out each item and compare colours that work too. As I’m curvy on top, I opted for a short culottes that balance out the blouse and made me more proportioned. Anything body-con would just look odd and make anyone appear more busty then they are.
I also used some denim to give it a more modern twist and I love how this whole outfit looks with a carousel in the background accompanied by lush grass and trees.
