White embroidered blouses

Following Keep it Chic’s post, I did go looking for more affordable options of the embroidered white blouse. It has proved very difficult to find anything decent, most of them are quite awful (not bad, very very bad!!). I do not like “boho”, I do not like polyester and cheap. Especially in a white shirt. The fabric needs to be good and, if there is an embroidery, this must be high quality.

As I said, I couldn’t really find anything terribly exciting. I wanted a long sleeve shirt with a real embroidery, done with a thick thread. Perhaps is a bit early for it or perhaps it is not in fashion, I don’t know.

Here’s what I did find:

The only way I would wear such blouses is with a pair of jeans, pointy flats (rounded toe ones look too classic and boring I reckon), I would then add pearl earrings and a fun small handbag, like so:

So, what do you think? Will you be wearing an embroidered blouse ? (when it gets colder add a long wooly cardigan).

BTW. In the process of trying to find blouses I also found this cute dress:
