|My 'Vintage Cream Blue & Pink Pure Silk Blouse'|
After six days of gazing longingly out of the window at my postie's van, my pink parcel sent by Sarah-Jane of Vintage Magpies has arrived! And all the way from France! Not long ago now, I arranged with Sarah that I would help to advertise her vintage e-store, Vintage Magpies. It deserves all the attention and credit it can get for its authentic and characterful pieces! Sarah asked me whether I would like to be sent a product from Vintage Magpies to style up and feature on my blog, and of course, I said "Yes please!"

|Blouse: Vintage Magpies, Shorts, Sunglasses and Bucket Bag: Primark, |
Floral Headband: Reading Festival '12 Pop-Up Stall, Boots: New Look.
To coordinate with the turquoise, fuchsia and orange tones in the blouse, I wore this multi-hued floral headband which I bought from a pop-up stall at Reading Festival last summer. Denim shorts are always a must for a statement, summery blouse; being comfortable, practical and letting print do the talking! As I only yesterday bought these tan, cut-out, buckle boots and fell in love with them, I teamed them with my blouse to elongate my legs and add a kind of western-bohemian feel, though nude pumps or a cute pair of brogues would work for day too! My mini, studded bucket bag adds a slightly modern twist- as an update on the adventurer's backpack. It's just the right size for holding those essentials while you're out and about. Lastly, a fabulous pair of sunglasses always lifts an outfit- tortoise shell frames are my idea of classic.I took these pictures in and around my back garden, and also up the field where we keep our horse and Shetland pony! Florence the immobile caravan (pictured below) is a much-loved member of our family, and she looked too adorable with her posh, personalised number plate to leave out! I hope you like the pictures, and of course my blouse which I will now treasure and move to a special place in my wardrobe! Head to www.shopvintagemagpies.co.uk asap to treat yourself to another of their charming, one-off finds.
