jumping on *that blouse* bandwagon

I'm under the Insta influence.....again. You'll have no doubt spotted this gorgeous M&S blouse on some very well known bloggers and Instagrammers. I generally try to resist being tempted by the more highly publicised heroes of the season. However, I'll then go and spot it on someone styling it perfectly and looking tres cool in it, then the fashion-y cogs in my head start whirring and suddenly I find myself desperately in *need* of the said item. The grim weather has also got a part to play in my preoccupation with this top.....I am so over being cold, I want to shed some layers. I am craving some Spring-like clothing. Anyway thanks to the super stylish Jane as this little number is now hanging in my closet just begging to be worn!

It's so pretty isn't it! I had planned to do a little trying on session to show you how I would wear this but I'm going down with a cold and so I'm currently nursing a hot toddy. I do however have a fitting room selfie to share.

                                                                   M&S Indigo Blouse

I plan to style this with some customised self-cropped Gap real straight jeans, an army style shackett and some flat pumps....hopefully in the coming weeks. I reckon it will also look fab with some khaki cargo trews or a denim skirt later on!

This is my first ever M&S Indigo purchase so I've had a quick peruse of the rest of the range!

I've previously established (here) that I'm happily inviting a little more red to reside in my wardrobe. So a couple more tops from this range have caught my eye!

Love this peasant-style patterned one too!

Totally tempted by this kimono-style jacket. There is definitely a hole in my wardrobe for this style of jacket/kimono/blouse.....whatever you wish to call it!

One final must-have! I have some biker jeans from Zara that are a couple of years old that have become my go-to bottoms this A/W. I am definitely going to be investigating these instore!

Have you been tempted by the Insta-famous Indigo blouse? Or anything in the M&S Indigo range for that matter?!

A quick outfit round-up from the past few days.....anyone else feel like they are running out of cold weather options?

  1. It's a lovely blouse but would do nothing positive for me. Shame as it's so pretty.

  2. It s a lovely blouse! And I love your last picture! Those boots are stunning!
