...that wind...


fighting the wind



Pants: TJMaxx (similar at CR) (under $20-comes in ton of colors) (at F21)
Shoes: Michael Kors (color Slate sueded lizard)  (more sizes here in black though) (other option for less)
Bag: Oasis(cute pastel bag here) (here a smaller one)





After I saw this top on the model above I just fell in love but didn't see myself in it. Turns out I couldn't pass it up. I'm still not convinced 100% if I like it on me (but definitely like it a bit more with this neon necklace).

I haven't figured out what else to style it with (other than white pants/shorts, jeans and maybe a bright pencil skirt?)
Any suggestions?

  2. The top looks adorable on you! Love the neon necklace with it. I think it'd be cute with a bright pencil skirt....maybe in turquoise.

  3. love how you styled this! i wouldnt normally go for that type of top either, but the necklace totally makes it! (where is it from btw?)
    a bright pencil skirt would def work as well!

  4. I know I've seen you wear peach/pink skinnies before. Would they work? But I do think a bright neon pencil skirt would be AWESOME! I love paisley too.. can't get enough of it!

  6. The paisley Yakutia blouse is gorgeous on you and I don't think just anyone can pull that print and color scheme off. I agree that your other options could be just about any other brightly colored pencil skirt for this season and navy in the fall.

  7. Hahaha I meant Talitha. I'm not sure how "Yakutia" was the replacement? Hahahaha

  11. What a beautiful outfit! The necklace is gorgeous! I have a thing for necklaces as you know :) I think the top is very versatile and would look great tucked into a skirt.

  13. I work at J.Crew, and we have been styling it with our red minnie pants. I love that look, and you could also do a yellow pencil skirt, and wear with dark denim and a blazer for the fall.

  14. I really like the shoulders on this top. And the necklace with this top is GREAT! You could wear this with a lot...bright pencil skirt, jeans, a white blazer...

  15. Love the orange pop of color! I'd never think to add that color. You've encouraged me to think outside of the box now!

  16. The addition of that bright necklace totally makes this blouse even better. I have the same paisley top in the purple tone and find that pulling colors from the top makes things simpler. Other than denim, I think a teal, olive green or orange bottom would look great. And for some reason, I'm thinking a peach skirt or jeans/pants might totally work with it too.
    This outfit has me thinking I need to have my new white jeans hemmed pronto, so I can wear my paisley top again. :)

  17. Love that top - I think you chose well, the print seems elegant and versatile - I could see it with a black skirt and colorful necklace + shoes...but I'll leave the combining to you - you're WAY more creative than me :-)

    I think the top would be great paired with a coral pencil skirt or coral pants (I think you did an OOTD with some coral skinnies not long ago). Shades of pinks...teal or yellow would be fab!

  23. It is gorgeous! I think you could definitely wear any color jeans with it (like the coral color of your necklace!) I can't wait to see what you come up with :)

    Following you now, I hope you do too!

    I just did the same - bought the blue one for $27.99. Wouldn't have even taken it off the rack had I not seen it on someone first. Thanks for all your tips!

    UGH how does everything look so good on you?

    I love that top on you but it wouldn't look good on me! You're pretty!

  36. I wonder why no one has suggested your beloved black skinny jeans and some boots. Maybe this would be a little dark, but give it a try!

    By the way: I love following your blog - just to watch cour closet grow and to see you recombinding your stuff. Sadly I'm somedays a little jealous because of your extraordanary body and hair.
