Floral Top + Skinny Jeans Under $100

Good morning! Whew, this has been a day already. I didn’t think I was going to get a post up, but then I remembered I had these pictures.

This is probably the last summer outfit I’ll be posting because Cyndi and I start 25 Days of Fall Fashion next Saturday!!!

I’m a big fan of florals right now, which is a nice departure from my obsession with stripes. Don’t worry, I’m not giving up on stripes, but for today I’m styling this floral top from Loft.

I like how it has a v-neck but it’s not super low, and the ruffle straps are cute. It’s kind of voluminous, but the front tuck helps it not be too overwhelming.

Honestly, I think this top would be more flattering on someone who is smaller up top, but it’s fun for a change. I styled it with black shorts and black sandals to take my daughter to her middle school open house last week.

These jeans are under $100, and I really like the fit. They’re by BlankNYC. The wash is almost an acid-wash, but not quite. The 80s are back, y’all!

In this shot, you can see the material on both the top and jeans a little better.

I’m wearing blush espadrille wedges, and I carried a taupe bag.

Since the top is so busy, I didn’t bother with a necklace, but I did add these double hoop earrings. I’m wearing these a lot lately, I just love the bold but delicate statement.

Hope y’all enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Oh I hear ya when it comes to exercising . I find unless I get it done first thing in the morning at night I’m sitting on the coach feeling guilty about it so I go upstairs and get on the treadmill.( it’s been way too hot this summer to exercise outside ) unless I’m out there before 7 and that ain’t happening… I try to commit to 5 days a week taking the weekends off… BUT if I miss a week day then I try to fit it in on the weekend… everything takes time and some days there’s just not enough unless you feel like the energizer bunny ha!! Love the blouse and that’s my favorite color for denim. I’ve never been a dark denim girl. Really looking forward to more pics of the House. Those squares look yummy.., may have to try those 😉 on a day I’m exercising though …
    Have a great weekend 

  2. I saw the fall trends for 2018 on Blogtrottr yesterday. Lots of “Not going there!”. Acid wash of the 90s was one of them. 
    What are Scotcheroos? Cookies, I assume. 
    Will we get a sneak peek at your office tomorrow? 

  3. Cute outfit! I like the acid wash but not thinking it is my thing as a slight pear shaped. Loft always has cute tops. I have had good luck at my Loft Outlet too. SO looking forward to fall outfits. Hoping we actually have a fall in Atlanta area this year! Yes, would love to see more of your house! 

  4. Hi Jo-Lynne! I  Love the whole outfit  and like the others, I’m enjoying all the house updates .  I’m sorry to post this here, but can’t find your email from earlier in the week . You showed a V Camuto denim jacket in one of your posts and  i’m wondering if you have a small or a medium ?  They are out of the smalls but I didn’t want to purchase the medium if it stretches out easily .  Any thoughts ?  Thank you !

    1. Hi Pam, I am so sorry I’m just getting back to you on this! I have the small, I don’t know about it stretching, but I had a Vince Camuto denim vest once, and I had to get the small b/c the medium was too big.

  5. That is a very pretty top!  Keep your upper arms toned, so that as you age, you will still be able to wear sleeveless tops and like what you see in the mirror.  I don’t do sleeveless or sleeves that are too short.  The summer heat and humidity are returning here, unfortunately!  I can’t wait to read your comments on the college marching bands performance!

  6. Cute outfit.  I’ve been realizing I need some outing tops with a black base.  Somehow all mine go with blue or white but my favorite (non jean) summer pants are black.  There’s always something!!

    Scotcheroos sound good.  I haven’t had those in years.  : )

    Enjoy watching the marching band and seeing your son!!

  7. So cute on you.  I love Loft tops. They are quality and last and their sales can’t be beat.  I clicked on the link to see what you made to take to your son.  He’ll love those. Have a great time…….well, I’m commenting so late, you probably already had your great time. 🙂 LOL   Today we look like Fall….we’ve had such hot weather forever, I’m enjoying today.  Looking forward to your new Fall Series.
