I fully admit that this is a concept look for me. I don't know if I have the actual guts to walk around public in shorts and boots. But there was something about this ASOS horse blouse that was just begging me to throw my boots on. So I listened to the blouse against my better fashion sense that was saying "Giiirrrllll, what are you thinking?" because I knew that I was just going to run outside and snap some pictures to see which fashion voice was correct - the blouse or my inner sense of style? And now I can't decide because after looking at these pictures, my inner sense of style thinks that while it's a bit of a departure from my normal repertoire of late, there is still some element here that I think makes this actually work a little bit (can you sense my confident inner voice of style in that sentence?).
Regardless of whether this particular outfit works I am excited to style this ASOS blouse once it gets back to me - I had to send it back for a smaller size. I was literally swimming in it, and while I like a loose-fitting blouse, this was way too loose. So here's hoping it will make it to the UK and back quickly! Because it is the perfect marriage between my horse-obsessed younger self and my current style sensibilities.
