Blossom Wrap Top + High Waist Skinnies
Happy Thursday, friends! I’m back today with an outfit I might wear out to dinner or to a casual fall event where dressed-up denim is appropriate. This floral wrap top is a great little transition piece for those of us who are still experiencing unusually warm fall weather.
I’ve always loved a peplum top for the way it enhances a woman’s curves, but I also struggle to find wrap tops that actually close over the girls… usually I end up having to adhere it to my body with fashion tape. When I saw this wrap top on the Loft website, I was skeptical, but I ordered it and hoped for the best.
I was super excited when it came in the mail and I discovered that it has a clever little snap placed right where you need it. (Why don’t all wrap tops and dresses have that???) It’s also right on trend with the fall floral print.
Since we’re having such a warm fall, I love the short sleeves, but you could always add a cardigan or jacket when it gets cold out.
Here’s a look at the back of the top. It has a adjustable pull-through waist ties so you can make it fit your waist perfectly, and I think the flutter sleeves are so feminine and pretty.
I paired this top with dark wash skinnies, but it would also be cute with white or pink — although that would be more of a summer look. Not that I’m opposed to wearing white jeans this time of year, but I usually pair them with heavier fabrics to make them look intentional for fall.
I added my grey suede peep-toe booties that I’ve been wearing so much this fall. They go with so many outfits and they’re really comfortable. They’re on the pricier side, but I got them during the Nordstrom sale when they were 40% off. If you like them, remember you can Favorite them from my shopping widget below, and then you’ll get notified when they go on sale!
I carried my taupe crossbody with gold hardware. I’ve been carrying the same few purses over and over and over in this fall style series… that’s real life, right??? I’ve just been going to my closet and picking out whatever I would carry if I were going somewhere in these outfits.
But I wonder, how do you guys feel about that? Would you prefer I pick up a few new bags in a wider variety of price points to add to my outfits do make them more interesting and current? Or is it better to use what I have, since that’s more realistic. I mean, nothing about these styles series are realistic. No one buys 25 new fall outfits each season… ha! So maybe I should work harder to incorporate a wider variety of bags and accessories, rather than reaching for the same ones over and over?
Speaking of accessories, I filled the neckline of the top with this 3-layer necklace, but unfortunately it’s sold out. Then I added gold hoops (also old) and a delicate cuff. I love this cuff bracelet — you’ve seen it a lot, but it is still available. I wear it a lot with my dressier looks.
