Good morning everyone, it is all about the RIXO Houndstooth blouse and the shrimps bag for this look. Before I get started on the ensemble here is a little bit of a backstory about RIXO. Best friends Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey started RIXO in their London living room. The brand was born from their passion for vintage, their philosophy is to evoke a wanderlust & free spirit in all their wearers. They wanted to fill the gap in the contemporary market with easy-to-wear, feminine shapes and high quality materials.
Before I get started on my ensemble, here is what has been happening in Mum Life this week. The boys have been off school for two weeks now and apart from taking them to their extra curricular activities I have trying to do some packing. Trying to decide on what we shall be taking with us to Dubai and what we will get rid off. It is not long now before we head off and there is still a ton of things that needs to get done. I am trying not to let it get me bogged down. I have made a list of things that needs sorting out and ticking them off as I go along. Which I find always helps for me as I can see what I have left to do!
First off lets begin with this Moss Mono Houndstooth RIXO blouse. This comes in a v neck, with a pussy bow fastening, the wide sleeves are long, with elasticated cuff and a straight hem. There is something about this print that always draws me in. A gorgeous blouse that can be worn with a skirt for a night out, or with a short like I have here for a daytime look. It can easily be dressed down with a pair of jeans and some trainers/sneakers should you choose to do so.
This is my third piece of clothing from the brand and I adore their prints and design. If you missed my previous post on the perfect summer midi skirt, well why not take a look HERE. RIXO are always inclusive, they create a fusion of original hand-painted prints and timeless silhouettes to flatter every woman. irrespective of age, season, size, nationality or time of day.
So here I opted to style the RIXO houndstooth blouse with my black Zara shorts. This pair is a few years old but I love a high waisted pair of shorts. These look and feel wonderful on, coming in a Paper Bag high waist. They have a side zip and tie-waist belt perfect for cinching me in at the waist. I find high waisted shorts always make my legs look longer then they actually are. Anyone else find that with their high waisted shorts?
Next I teamed my Shrimps bag in the style Willow with my RIXO houndstooth blouse. This boxy bag comes in a black and cream gingham faux pearl design, which ties in beautifully with the blouse. Willow features two beaded top handles and an inside pocket. The bag comes in the brands signature lining, which is this seasons hand drawn daffodil design. My Willow bag is currently on sale as well as a few others if you are interested.
Moving on and to my black Whistles fedora hat, this hat is perfect for wearing all year round. Whether it’s for those colder days to keep my head warm or for those sunnier days, shielding me from the sun. So it is ideal for right now and adds to my overall look. Any excuse to wear a hat in my case.
So onto my shoes and here I decided to wear my trusted black Castaner Espadrilles. These need no introduction as you would have seen me wearing them on repeat in my previous posts.
As for the finishing touches I wore my Michael Kors sunglasses. On my lips I am wearing the shade Red Velvet from Lime Crime and on my nails I wore OPI nail polish in the shade “I Believe In Manicures”. Finally to complete my look I am wearing my AUrate New York gold cylinder ring.
