Hello, friends! Happy August 1st!!! It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Summer is flying by, as usual.
Today’s outfit is a combination of fall and summer wardrobe pieces, making it a great transition outfit as we start to think ahead to fall. I absolutely love this Lush Woven V-Neck Blouse because it’s affordable, on trend, and you can wear it now and later.
I almost styled it with shorts and booties, but then I decided that while that’s a cute look, it’s probably not one I would actually wear anywhere. This outfit is more practical for the average suburban mom. Of course you can sub non-distressed jeans if these aren’t your jam.
I do love these J Brand jeans, though. They have such a great fit and the perfect amount of distressing for my taste. I personally prefer subtle rips to gaping holes. I keep hoping to find them on sale again, but so far, no dice. I’ll keep you posted!
This top isn’t see-through, but it is cut pretty low and may require a cami for some of us. I didn’t bring one with me to Maine, so I have it sitting back on my shoulders to avoid over sharing, ahem . . . But otherwise I really like it. I will probably wear a nude cami to avoid breaking up the V-neckline, but black or white would work as well.
Here’s a view from behind. This blouse is longer in the back and shorter in the front, which is a huge trend right now. Because it drapes so nicely, it doesn’t seem to add a lot of visual weight, as this style of blouse can tend to do. For size reference, I’m wearing my usual medium. I’m 5’5″ and 140-ish.
These are the Vince Camuto Feina Booties, on sale for $99 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll let you know if they get restocked. Similar styles that I like are the BP. Tandem Bootie in Khaki Suede ($79 on sale) and the Sam Edelman Rudie in Putty Suede ($99 on sale) — this is similar in color to the Feina Booties I’m wearing.
I carried my Tory Burch Convertible Crossbody, also from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I like how the color works with the Feina booties. They’re sort of a taupe, so they have grey undertones and pair well with a grey bag.
My bracelets are an Alex and Ani set, also on the #NSale. I went with larger earrings and didn’t bother with a necklace, although I think something in the neckline would be nice.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I spent most of mine getting organized. Paul and I went to Ikea on Saturday and picked up this free-standing clothing rack, and last night we got it set up and I moved all the fall stuff out of my closet.
Then I mentioned something about needing more light in our bedroom for my mirror selfies (#fashionbloggerproblems) and from there we ended up re-arranging the bedroom to make room for a bigger mirror and lighting. So today my assignment is to go shopping for a bigger mirror. I’m hoping Home Goods has something.
Have a great day!
