Lace Trim Peasant Blouse with Bootcut Jeans
Hello, friends. Happy Tuesday! Today I’m getting my boho on with a peasant blouse and bootcut jeans. This is one of those outfits that I’m not sure it really flatters me, but I really love it for some reason.
I fell in love with this Bellange lace blouse when it arrived from Trunk Club a few weeks ago. The price point is up there, but Joie makes a gorgeous blouse. I absolutely adore this lace. Fortunately it was on sale (although it is on a better sale now, boo) so I decided to splurge on it because I felt like it would be a great piece to bring to the fashion blogging conference I’m attending in a few weeks.
For size reference, i’m wearing the medium. I initially thought it was too big, but when I tried the small, it didn’t lay right in the shoulders, so I stuck with the medium. I didn’t wear an under layer, but you may want one because parts of it are sort of see-through. The way the lace is placed, it’s fairly modest, but it’s up to your personal comfort level. For me, it will depend on where I am and who I’m with. I find that a cami will sometimes stick to my top and make it look awkward, so I avoid them when I can.
Since this blouse has a bit of a boho vibe going on, I paired it with bootcut jeans and espadrille wedges, but I also love it with skinny jeans. I can’t decide which is my favorite, so I’ll try to style differently for a future post so you can see it both ways. I like that I have a few options. It will also be really pretty with my mint skinnies.
My shoes are from last season, and they’re 50% off at 6pm.com, but this color is almost sold out. The adobe is gorgeous too! I also love these and these, and these are really cute for a more budget-friendly option. I actually have a pair of Steve Madden that are similar to those.
I thought these chandelier earrings were the perfect compliment to this outfit. I wanted something that stands out but doesn’t necessarily compete with the top.
I also added some of my Alex and Ani wire bangles. Since the sleeves are 3/4-length, they don’t get lost in the cuffs, and I thought I needed some bling on the arms.
My saddle bag is from last season as well, but there are lots of similar options if you’re in the market for one. I’m a huge fan of the Rebecca Minkoff small vanity saddle bag, and Sole Society has a similar one for under $100.
In this outfit, I’m totally ready for a casual night out on the town or a dinner date with my honey. I also think it will be perfect for one of the daytime events at the conference I’m headed to next month, although I might go with skinny jeans and a lower heel for that.
