Small Pops of Colour

What:
Sheer White Blouse- Winners
White Cami- Chado
Fine Striped Pants- Rickys
Purple Shoes- Aldo
Blue Ring- Self Made

These pants appear greyish from a distance but they actually have very faint black and white stripes.  I love the rosettes on the neckline of this blouse and the little tucks. 
I don't wear this shirt often because I usually like to wear tops that fit in the waist or can be belted in...usually in fear of looking like a marshmellow or icecream cone....or pregnant.   I have major issues with fit and proportion...basically meaning that in this outfit the slightly flared leg on the pants balances out the width of the top while still keeping a slim silhouette.  If I was to wear this top with skinny jeans and flats I would look like an icecream cone...but if I wore boots over the skinny jeans instead of flats everything would balance out because of the visual weight of the boots...does that make any sence?!?  If not go watch a few episodes of What Not to Wear!!

LOL! So agree. I am so glad I have found a community where you can discuss such things at lenght and not be weird. My husband thinks I have gone to the deep end when I start explainning such things to him. LOOOOVE that top by the way. So cool details and looks great with those pants.
