Don't be fooled by the amount of them I own, but the truth is, blouses are not really an item of clothing I go for very often.  I don't know why, but I just find them really hard to style and layer with, so when I received this blouse I was a little bit at a loss as to what to put it together with.  Turns out that it's actually a really versatile piece of clothing!  Because it's sleeveless and made of a lighter, cotton fabric, it can be styled casually with some denim shorts and pastel accents, or a little more dressy and monochrome like I've done so here.  I love the print too, if you look closely it looks like quaint old cottages, I think they look like illustrations from an old storybook, and I think the subtle frills on the front add an extra, flattering detail.  Lastly, I topped the look off with some adorable little moon collar clips from Ladybird Likes which I think are so cute, and although the blouse is printed so you can't see them at first, I think the blue tones compliment the black and white of the blouse.  Zoe also makes a ton of other, lovely collar clips, necklaces, brooches and more, all for under £14 so I would definitely check out her Etsy store here!

So I'm glad to inform you all that I (finally) announced the winners of the Native Feathers giveaway and they are Lucy Cole and Christina Marie!  Congratulations and I hope you enjoy your goodies!
