I’m already really enjoying my “one-item-a-month challenge” a lot more than I thought I would.
It’s almost becoming a sport to pick the best, most suitable and reasonable piece of clothing I can find. I can only pick one, so it has to be something I really love.
Of course, I have already started canvassing the shops for my February treat. After having a good look at my wardrobe I realized I am indeed in need of another statement blouse. I have this one shirt by Levi’s that tend to be my go-to whenever I want to look nice, but fancy wearing jeans. And I feel like I have worn it a bit too often lately. So it would be lovely to have another one that I love just as much to switch my look up a bit.
A statement blouse is a great item to have since it can be worn from day to night with just a little swap of accessories. I can wear it buttoned up in the day and a bit looser at night. Add a dash of red lipstick and a couple of heels and I’m on my way to a girly dinner.
At the moment I’m leaning slightly towards the red polka-dot Michael Kors blouse (it’s on sale…), the gorgeous geo-print blouse by Y.A.S or maybe the white Anna Mason blouse in Victoriana style (this one is on sale too!)
I’m going to do my best to vary my 12 items this year. In January I picked a maxi dress by Swedish designer Filippa K (adlink). In February I’m going for a statement blouse and I will continue like this until I have a great little versatile capsule wardrobe that fits perfectly in with the rest of the items I already own. What do you think? Does it sound like a good idea?

I’m so excited that a few of you have decided to join in on my challenge. Is anyone else going for a statement blouse in February?
