A few of my favorite things

I’ve worn this blouse about 17 times since I got it… And that was last month. You can probably see why I like it so much. It’s different! The combination of many textures and patterns make this blouse a standout piece. I’m constantly on the hunt for something that not everyone has. Something with great detail. And I found it! See the different color ways linked above.

Consistent Staples

These are pieces that I have consistently worn over the last few months. They are basics, versatile and of course, adorned with ruffles. Sadly, my skirt and tee are no longer available, but I linked some similar and just as fabulous pieces. The jacket can be paired over just about anything including dresses and athleisure. I can’t wait to wear the skirt with sweaters and boots as it gets colder. My options are endless, and your’s can be too.

Red Rover, Red Romper

As you all know, I love a good deal. I found this romper at Saks Off Fifth and decided to wear it to a wedding last month. I was surprised to find that the romper was Kendall + Kylie’s brand because I don’t necessarily align my style with theirs. I just looked online at their newest season, and I love a lot of their pieces. It is definitely worth a look.

Spring it On

The majority of the outfits I put together on a regular basis mix brands, trends, and price points. You all know I love Zara, and you’ve probably realized by now that I also love nice things – don’t we all. If you don’t feel like committing to a trend, why not try it out by getting an inexpensive version. If you’re over it before the trend has even started, have no fear – you didn’t spend an arm and a leg. This blouse is from Zara, but you can find similar more expensive options on Shopbop and Revolve.

I’ve incorporated many of my favorite trends and pieces into this look. My coveted Old Navy denim vest goes with me everywhere, on every trip. I love ruffles and feminine details which are incorporated in both the blouse and pants. Lastly, gingham is one of my favorite patterns to wear. No matter if it’s small or bold, it makes a plain outfit not so plain.
