When I bought my Preen skirt, I immediately thought of wearing if with fuchsia. This is a color I had been wanting to try for a while and it would be perfect with the Preen skirt.
I was initially thinking of a crop top. Since the skirt was so high waisted I thought it would be perfect. However, I never succeeded in finding one.
What I did find were two other blouses. I could not decide which shirt I liked best and since they were both on sale and very affordable I bought both.
I already showed you my other fuchsia blouse here. This one is very casual and can also be worn as a short tunic on the beach. Very light and breezy so perfect for the Singapore weather.
This blouse is from Ralph Lauren, a brand I have never worn before. The blouse caught my eye as it was exactly the color I wanted and I thought the stripe on it was fun. I have never been a fan of a puffed sleeve but I thought I try on the blouse anyway.
It’s definitely different from what I usually wear but I liked the look, the color and the price so I decided to take it home with me.
It actually looks pretty good with the Preen skirt too and creates a mixed prints look which is still very modern.
Today I’m wearing it with my Zara skirt and Hoegl fuchsia shoes. Together it creates a simple modern/classical look that I really enjoy.
In the evening and for events I will wear it with my fuchsia pumps but when I’m going to walk a lot I choose these comfortable flats by Tom’s.
I was tempted by them on a small street in Amsterdam as they were fun and comfortable. Turns out they are perfect to wear with my new fuchsia tops and are great for those days when I want to walk a lot.
So there you go. Who would have thought that I would wear a puffed blouse by Ralph Lauren? Sometimes you just need to try out new things and see if they work. What you see, may just surprise you!
