a game of cat and mouse

Burberry trench coat and scarf. Capezio boots. Hue tights. MAC lipstick.

Anthropologie blouse, H&M skirt, vintage pins.

A piece of cheese embroidered into the blouse.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and Boxing Day. I always enjoy the time between Christmas and New Year's Eve because my parents and I usually spend a lot of time together. Family time is always wonderful.
This blouse is the most adorable piece of clothing I currently own. I've wanted a printed blouse for a long time, but I always assumed it'd be horses. Yet, when I was faced with purchasing horses over mice, mice won heads down. It's such a pretty pink colour with orange mice all over. If you look closely, some mice are even in possession of pieces of cheese. How quirky! Plus, the collar isn't too close to my neck which I found is common with a lot of my blouses. I find it really hard to wear blouses buttoned up that lack much breathing room around the neck because I get a choking sensation, a reason I don't like necklaces that are too close to my neck.

Anyways, hope you're all enjoying your holiday breaks! I'm already beginning to think about going back to school and how I really should focus on trying to get ahead on some readings...but it can wait, aha.

You look so cute! I love how quirky the blouse is! I have the same problem with feeling constrained by high collars (my mom could NEVER get me to wear turtlenecks when I was younger)

I just found your blog, it's so interesting and you're right, family time is so important. Your shirt is so cute, thanks for sharing it and that's funny about the mice with pieces of cheese. Following you now,

That embroidered cheese is brilliant. I love the skirt too though. I always seems H&M sells nicer stuff abroad... weird. Anyhow, have looads and heaps of fun with your family! And I hope you're having a great new years eve (and new year!!)
