But really though, I have it in 2 colors and actually just bought it in a third (although I’m not sure I’ll keep it because maybe I should chill a little?). But whatever the case, it’s been a MAJOR hit this season – for me and with y’all too it seems from clicks, likes, and sales!
It’s the perfect throw-on when you want to look polished but not try too hard. I love that this blouse — though classic — has just the right amount of on-trend details to make it fresh and exciting. Peplum sleeves are HUGE this spring and this blouse makes it a must in your wardrobe. Since it is now a closet staple for me, I wanted to share 3 different ways I’ve worn it recently.
My favorite is wearing it with all white. Something about a crisp blouse and top to bottom white looks very chic. I love the pop of cognac to add a little color. I also shared my travel outfit (on Instagram) to Mexico a few weeks ago where I wore it almost the exact same way and you guys seemed to love it!
The second way I’ve worn this top is tucked into a simple pair of high-waisted shorts I recently picked up at Club Monaco (one of my FAVORITE stores EVER!). I love their FIT, especially when it comes to shorts, skirts, and pants. I also wore it with shorts when I took over Sole Society’s Instagram – see the full outfit here! Pairing this top with shorts is easily something you can wear to lunch with girlfriends without looking over-dressed to the occasion.
Lastly, I added a little class and went for more of a sophisticated look that could take you to a number of places/events, but I definitely had my working ladies in mind. I paired it with my (recent) favorite pair of skinny pants (those rag & bone ones I keep raving about!) and a silk, red scarf. This outfit reminded me so much of something my mother would wear! (which is a VERY good thing in my opinion)
I can definitely see this as something you can wear to a business casual luncheon, running around town, and of course to the office as well! I love the addition of the scarf – it gives the outfit a little pop of color and texture to tie it all together. Plus, I tried a few necklaces with this top and none of them really look right. But I felt like the scarf vibes went well with the peplum sleeves for some reason. This is actually the same scarf I wore in a recent post with a striped tee, boyfriend jeans, and patent leather pumps – remember that outfit? (one of my favorites!)
What do you think?!
Which one is your favorite? How would you have styled the top?! And are you as big of a fan as I am?!
