As much as I do love a skirt/dress, I am and always will be a pants girl. It isn’t by choice that I find myself forever in pants, but rather a lifestyle – or more specifically, my lifestyle that just appears to lend itself to a more pant-based diet.
Between the constant running around, picking things up, dropping them back off again an hour later, photo-taking, meeting-coordinating and event-hopping, I guess it really is just easier to do it all in pants. But anyways… amongst all this pant wearing, sometimes the day calls for more than just a tee or oversized shirt with my denim, and on those days, I run straight to a statement blouse. Having recently received this stunning blouse from one of my favourite Australian labels, AJE, I’ve been found guilty wearing it even on those days that don’t call for such a statement.
But either way, when I am wearing anything with a statement sleeve, crazy pop of colour/pattern or even all of the above – I always pair the item back with a simple cut jean (aka nothing too trend-driven or overdone) and simple accessories/details.
