How we yearn for the fresh, clean air of spring and of course the warmth and sunshine it brings. This is the time to begin thinking about the change in our wardrobes.

A great time to access our range of spring/Summer clothes, looking at what needs replacing and updating. Perhaps looking at new styles and how we can incorporate them into our lifestyles.

With that in mind I had my mind set on purchasing a white blouse. However, I didn’t want just any white blouse, the picture in my mind was, sophisticated and feminine yet elegant enough to bring the crispness of spring alive. A piece that would be timeless in my wardrobe.

Browsing, I observed several different styles of the classic white blouse It gives us the illusion of warmer days yet a great layering piece for the cooler days that are still yet to come. A true winner in every girl’s wardrobe and a clear colour to give lift to the darker hues we have perhaps been accustomed to over Winter.

I was not at all surprised to find the perfect piece from Trelise Cooper’s range, a stiff cotton collar, full tailored sleeves and a delicate French lace. Just what I had been looking for, a classy yet simplistic blouse that could be worn with jeans and brogues or matched with a stunning heel and pant, offering so much versatility.

Walking away after making a dream purchase is a true feeling of euphoria and contentment. It can only boost the way we feel, the way we look and our overall confidence.

Live it, own it, love it…. enjoy X
