Outfit: Casual 50s Inspiration

Top: H&M // Disco Pants: Glamorous // Shoes: Vans

I feel this blouse gives off a real modern day 50's look, I think it's the polka dots and small ruffled bib detail around the neckline that does it. Paired with my shiny black disco pants, I do feel a bit like an extra in Grease! 

I've actually worn this blouse to job interviews in the past, worn with a pencil skirt or smart trousers, it's such a versatile piece. However, for a sunny walk around our local park, I dressed it down with my trusty Vans, as I do with so many daytime outfits. Trainers are such an easy way to make your style more casual - these black and burgundy Vans are my all time favourite pair, but unfortunately they're on their way out now. That just means I better get some more!

Also, I can't believe it's July today - this summer is flying by!
