Hello, hello & happy Wednesday! The first week back from spring break is never an easy one, let me tell you. However, I do love routine, and I am more than ready to get back into the swing of things. Graduation is 52 days away, which absolutely blows my mind. I still can’t believe how quickly college has flown by. Boy, is it bittersweet.
This past week in Dallas, I finally got to break out three of my favorite new pieces: a purple printed blouse, white ripped jeans, and neutral espadrille wedges. I eyed this breezy blouse for weeks. I typically find myself lusting over printed shorts, dresses, and rompers- never really dying over tops. However, when I discovered the brand ‘Spell & the Gypsy’, that completely changed for me. Spell makes the most incredible printed pieces, especially blouses. I love that their prints make a statement without being too overwhelming. When I saw this top on Planet Blue (let alone at a discounted price !!), I immediately had to add it to my cart. This top is a ridiculously comfortable, and I love the thought of knotting it at the waist and pairing it with a white midi skirt or some white culottes (swoon) for summer.
For a night out in Dallas, I paired the top with my new white ripped skinny jeans and espadrille wedges. (Side note: though I love these affordable espadrille wedges, make sure that you wear a band aid on your heels the first few times you wear them out. I’ve worn them twice now, and I would highly recommend a band aid the first 2-3 times you wear them.) To keep the rest of the look laid back and beachy, I added my favorite half up/half down hairstyle and a slouchy purse (that my lovely mom let me borrow). I finished the look off with a simple gold coin necklace that I purchased last summer.
All in all, I have a new love affair with printed blouses, especially for spring. They make for the perfect transition piece that can be paired with pants and shorts alike. I’ve linked a few printed blouses below at a variety of price points.
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
