Greetings and welcome back to 26 Days of Spring Fashion! Can you believe we’re already more than halfway through the series? Today I’m styling a green blouse two ways.
I had to laugh when Cyndi posted a green top two ways yesterday and we had styled them almost the exact same way. Great minds, and all that!
I love the details on this top — the flutter sleeves, the gathered back yoke, and the modest v-neck. It’s also the most gorgeous shade of green, and the flower branch print is really feminine and pretty.
It runs a little big, but I’m still wearing my usual small. It’s also quite long, so I did a front-tuck.
I had no idea this blouse was selling out until I went to write this post yesterday. People get cranky when I post things that are low inventory, but I swear, some of these stores (Loft is a major culprit) move their inventory so quickly, it’s almost impossible to get things out to you before the sizes start dwindling.
By the time I order something, it arrives 5 days later, I try it on, decide I like it, schedule a photo shoot, wait for my pictures to come back from my photographer, and then get a post written, things often start to sell out. I just got these pictures back from Alison on Sunday, so here we are.
The good news is, this blouse is fully stocked in petite sizes, and it runs a little big/long, so if you’re in between, you may be able to wear petite in this one. There are also a few plus sizes left, and they’re 50% off, but the other sizes are not.
Here are several other tops at Loft right now with a very similar style, and and you could wear any of them with white, black, or blue jeans. I particularly love that red one, and I think it’s exactly the same blouse, just in a different print.
And if you like the green, here are a few green blouses that would work with these looks, although they are all solids. (The first one does come in the bright green; I just couldn’t get it to show up that way in the widget.)
I styled this blouse two ways — first with white jeans and a denim jacket, and then with dark jeans and wedge sandals.
I’m absolutely in love with these gold woven mules. I got mine during the Shopbop sale, and they’re also at Amazon, Nordstrom, and Saks. They’re actually very comfortable and easy to walk in, unlike a lot of mules I’ve tried.
They’re going to go with so much this spring and summer, and the gold is a little bit glam. For size reference, I sized down half in these from my normal size 8.
This bag is also a new addition this spring. I think I shared it once already, but if you missed it, the leather is soft and luxe, and it has a nice microfiber lining. Overall, I feel this bag looks and feels more expensive than it is. You’ll be seeing a lot of this one over the next few months!
It’s available at a lot of retailers, but the best deal right now is at Lord & Taylor because they’re running a spend more, save more sale, and you can get at least 20% off.

These are those Good American jeans I got from Trunk Club a few months ago, and while I haven’t worn them a ton this winter, I think I’ll be wearing them a lot this spring.
They’re an inch longer than my AG legging ankle jeans, so they don’t work as well with ankle boots, but they do look great with pumps, flats, and sandals.
They also have a higher rise, so that plus the extra inch in the inseam visually elongates the line of the leg and creates a flattering silhouette. I’m wearing the 6, for reference, so I recommend sizing down if in between.
As far as accessories are concerned, I wore the same two necklaces and two bracelets that I wore with the black dress yesterday. In fact, these shoes and bag are the same too. The bag is old, sorry!
I also added gold double hoop earrings. I love the mix of delicates with this feminine blouse.
