You can thank Leeanne & Bree for this fabulous outfit, because it was during a Simons x LOULOU Magazine event in Vancouver that they spotted this fabulous macaron blouse. They rushed over "Look what we found! You have to try this!". Let's be honest, I didn't even need to try it on to know it belonged in my closet, but I gleefully threw it on to admire it in its entirety. Basically anything with macarons is a must-have in my book.
But it also got me thinking about printed blouses in general, because there are a huge amount of prints out there right now for Spring, and I think they're the perfect way to jazz up your office outfit! Of course, some workplaces are more rigid than others in terms of dress code, but if you can get a bit creative with your work outfits, then I think this would be a great way to liven them up a bit. I found this cute Mario Brothers printed blouse, this tulip blouse, this adorable flamingo blouse, and this quirky pineapple blouse all at Simons as well. So fun, right??
The easiest way to style these fun printed shirts is with solid-coloured bottoms (unless you're feeling extra adventurous!), so I pulled out this nice green pencil skirt I thrifted from Salvation Army a while back. Some solid coloured cropped work pants would look great too.
For some off-duty fun, I added this super bold pink lip - I picked up NYX's new Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Pink Lust at London Drugs and just LOVE it! Not really waterproof, but the colour is so beautiful, and it must have a slight blue tinge to it, because I find it really brightens my smile.
