A Horse Coin Blouse With A Corduroy Skirt

A Horse Coin Blouse With A Corduroy Skirt

Happy Thursday! It’s really starting to feel like Spring isn’t it? I’m seeing all of the crocuses and blossoms appearing, which is exciting! After Autumn, Spring is my favourite time of year, so I can’t get enough of the beautiful blooms that will be gracing our eyes very soon – I’ve got some exciting photoshoots planned with the scenery too, so hopefully those go to plan.

For this outfit, I wore a new Topshop Horse Coin Shirt that I bought last week, which I styled with my Topshop Corduroy Beige Skirt, finished off with my Gucci GG Belt. To keep with the theme of neutral and brown/beige, I went with my Jimmy Choo Romy Heels in Brown and my Mulberry Small Darley in Oak, as I think all of these shades complement each other really well.

I wouldn’t usually wear a shirt like this as it’s designed with a neck tie to have a pussy bow at the collar, but I never wear my shirts buttoned all the way to the top as I find it to be unflattering on me, so I went for an open button with the tie hanging down, which I think gave it a much more casual appearance and I like that. The corduroy fabric of the skirt is toned down too making it even more casual, but dressing these pieces up with the accessories brings it together and makes it formal as well, giving it a more versatile vibe.

I wanted to keep this blog post a bit shorter this time as I’ve been super busy this week, especially yesterday as I was at IKEA picking up all the things I need for my room renovation, which I can’t wait to share with you either, but it might be a few weeks yet before it’s finished. Overall though, I think the outfit does the talking itself as there’s not much more I can say about it, other than the fact that I think this horse coin shirt is incredibly cool and you will be seeing it again soon! As always, what’s your opinion of this look? Do you like it? Have a wonderful weekend! Lorna xx.

    This outfit has such a vintage vibe to it – maybe it’s the style of blouse with the cord, maybe it’s the colours (the brown and cream work so nicely together) either way it’s lovely on you!

    Hope that your week is going well and you have a nice weekend ahead of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Topshop really has a lot of great things. I like their selection of bags/purses.

    Topshop has amazing pieces and this blouse is no exception! It’s a unique print and the color is beautiful. It’s a timeless one and works for any time of the year. Love those! I can’t wait to see your room renovation once it’s done. Sounds like things are underway? Happy Friday Lorna and wishing you and Adam both a fabulous weekend!

      Thank you, Maureen! They do have some amazing pieces, especially when it comes to blouses and shirts, most of my quirky printed ones are Topshop. And yep, it’s underway! Got a lot done this weekend so I should be able to share more on it next month!

    The whole look is beyond beautiful, Lorna! Love all the warm shades and colours. How gorgeous are those heels though! it’s going to be a while until I can wear a pair but they are so on my list of “treat yourself’ <3

    Such a cute shirt. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you’re right to wear it without the bow thing done up as that would make it look maybe too officey (not a real word but, hey…) to wear with that lovely skirt. This whole colour scheme suits you really well, I think. ๐Ÿ™‚

              That’s the worst, I hate them! I take magnesium now though everyday and it’s seemed to help a lot as I was getting a few a week. Do you get them often? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow Lorna, I have the feeling that you needed something like a viewer guidance disclaimer for this post: Viewing this post may cause genuine exclamations or reduce your speech abilities to using open vowels onlyโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚

    That said, I honestly think that this and the one from โ€žFaux Fur Coat with a corduroy skirtโ€œ are your best outfits so far for this year. It just looks soโ€ฆproper!!! Perfectly matching colours, stylish clothing, not a single piece that confronts the composition regarding colours or model or purpose. I have the impression that something guides my eyes starting from your hair and face down to the shirt, the skirt and the shoes. To be honest, I was wondering why the blouse is called this way until I saw the horse heads clearly on the last photo, maybe because I again was perceiving the outfit as a whole!
    You are just soooo talented, beautiful Lorna!
    Once again a big WOW! I just cannot help it!

      Oh thank you so much, Steven ๐Ÿ™‚ You really do like the brown and cream tones together don’t you? The two you liked the most are very similar in their vintage vibe with an almost identical colour palette! I’m so glad you like it all though, thank you! It’s always nice to read your comments as I can see just how much you appreciate it all. It’s a pretty cool shirt isn’t it with the horses heads inside the coins?

      • February 27, 2019 / 6:04 pm

        You are welcome Lorna and yes you totally got me, you simply hit the bullโ€™s eye. These tones are one my favourite, especially if they are combined in such a way. And your blond hair matches them very well as well. I think that too vivid colours are (or may be) somewhat distractive and may draw too much attention at the expense of the face. And I always consider the human face and the person in general as the main and most important โ€žcomponentโ€œ in such photos…clothing should only “complete” a person, not “substitute” him/her. OK, now I classified you as a component ha ha LOL! But I guess you know what I mean.
        About the horses and the shirt: I like the way they are scattered all over the fabric, gives kind of a subtle โ€žwildโ€œ feeling to it ๐Ÿ™‚ But I also like its design.
