This is one of the outfits I wore over the Easter long weekend. This is my favourite top that I've ever owned; I bought it last year and posted it here. I love it because of the vibrant bright blue, the little design on the sleeves, and the statement bow which all make it very girly and unique. However, I don't actually wear it particularly often because I haven't got many plain skirts and I usually wear dresses. I think I should change this. My favourite top definitely deserves much more use!  I recently got my black skirt (and my green skirt from my last post) hemmed so I'm getting a lot more use out of them. I can't believe how many outfits I can make with those two skirts; it's opened up a whole new realm of possibilities. Another versatile item is my new bag which I bought for my birthday. I've used it every single day this week and it goes with absolutely everything. I love it so much! Also, the shoes; I love how often I'm told that they closely resemble the Marc Jacobs Daisy. As for the hair bow, I thought a touch of red would  stand out and work well; I also randomly felt like mixing spots and stripes which I'm seeing more of lately. This outfit came together by combining a number of my favourite items. For an unemployed person, I've had an extremely busy week. I believe, that after a difficult few months, my life might finally be getting better; even on the employment front things are potentially looking up. So much of it is associated with self belief; giving myself a chance, putting myself out there, taking chances, challenging myself despite extreme self doubt and realising just how much I've underestimated myself especially over the past few years. I don't want to say too much about it because I'm still in the initial stages but I should have a lot to say once everything is finalised. 

...oh and how amazing is 'Let Her Go' by Passenger. I can't stop listening to it.

Your Alannah Hill Hair Bow and the daisies on your flats enhance the very feminine look of you Forever New Zinnia Bow Top nicely. I love bows. Your black Revival Skirt pairs up well with that outfit. I'm sure you will have no trouble finding skirts that style well with your pretty blouse in the future. I think it would look wonderful paired with a wide variety of skirts in different colours such as tangerine, fuchsia, yellow, red, white, peach and more. It's a lovely top.
