June 23, Swiss Dot Blouse

All my house guests have left (sniff) and I am spending the day in my grubby clothes cleaning and doing laundry. Instead of showing you that, I am showing what I wore last night to a friend’s grad party.

I decided to go with a classic, simple look of black and white. I chose my white jeans, this time I went with the un-distressed pair (is that even a word?) and a black sleeveless top. On the left I show a tank- which I really love, but it’s very simple and plain. To make my outfit a little more dressy I wore a cute J Crew Swiss dot blouse with a ruffle collar- see below.

To complete the look, I added a blue and black necklace and wore peep toe block heel shoes instead of my black Birkenstocks. I was actually a little chilly, so I threw on my denim jacket- (not pictured). A denim jacket is probably my #1 staple item- it goes with everything! If you don’t have one, I suggest buying one. Mine is from Target!

Jeans- Gap

Blouse- J Crew (but found at Nordstrom Rack!)

Shoes- TJ Maxx

March 21st, Soft and Sweet

Today’s outfit isn’t earth shattering, but come to think of it- none of mine are! 🙂

But it’s a simple outfit that I think looks soft and sweet.

I think it’s because of this silk top with the ruffle neckline. It seems very dainty and ladylike to me!

The color is a muted blush pink, and paired with this soft grey boyfriend cardigan I think it makes for a simple, but cute look.

On the right you can see my original outfit- instead of the boyfriend cardigan I tried this cropped one.

While I do love this sweater, in my opinion, this outfit looks out of proportion. With the skinny jeans, I think I need the longer sweater to help provide some balance.

On my feet I have on my Tory Burch flats. These are a great pair of neutral flats- the snakeskin goes with everything.

To finish the look, I’ve added a necklace. I seem to do this almost every day- and believe me, a year ago I never wore necklaces! EVER!

However, I’ve accumulated quite a collection over the past year and I store them on a belt rack in my closet- so I can see them all at once. It makes it so much easier to just grab one and throw it on when they are easily accessible!

Don’t forget, it’s Wednesday, so be sure to check out the Pleated Poppy for more ideas!

Such a simple, yet easy outfit.
