Striped Blouse with Ruffled Sleeves


Today I decided to get this post out. Something always came in-between and I never managed to put it together. I’ve worn this top which I bought from Zara so often, that it seems old – although it’s not. I’m always on the go. I’ve made a note in my journal saying “slow down”. Well, today is the perfect day to start, as it’s pouring with rain!

This blouse is so feminine with pleated ruffled sleeves and a bow belt, which can be wrapped around the waist a few times, or tie in a large bow at the side. After I took these photos I removed some of the belt material to make it shorter.

It’s actually meant to be worn the other way around – but I prefer to wear it back-to-front, as I find it a little more playful. Despite me wearing it this way – it’s equally beautiful, worn the correct way around, especially if you are working in an office. After work – turn it around before meeting up with friends, for a night out.

Zara: blouse. I also like this one from here and here. They are very beautiful.
