One of the reasons I love blogging is that it really allows me to document my style evolution. I’ve come to realize that if a piece of clothing comes in 15 different color options, you can safely bet that I’m choosing a neutral or that 9 times out of 10, I stick with what I know works. However, there is that 10% of the time that I step out the the box and try something totally different (because what fun is fashion without taking some risks?) and usually, those looks wind up being some of my favorites.
When I first saw this gingham top, I was hesitant to order it at first. The look I was envisioning in my mind was going to go one of two ways– super cute or Dolly Parton (nothing against Dolly, I just wouldn’t exactly describe her as a style icon of mine). Since I’ve been all about a statement sleeve as of late and I was in a 10% type of mood, I decided to throw caution into the wind and just go for it. I am so happy I did because I absolutely love this blouse!
The wrap-fit is really flattering and the ruched sleeves are so fun and different. You can fluff them up to make them full or smooth them down a bit. The price point is great (currently just under $45 with an extra 20% off!) and it also comes in five other colors. I think that this is such a festive look for the holidays and I plan on wearing it to a Christmas party next weekend. Just add a red lip and you’re all set to go!
I hope you were able to shop some of the great sales last weekend (so far I checked three people off my list, #progress) and if not, don’t worry…I’ll be sharing some more gift guides each week this month (hint- you might want to check back in on Friday because there may be a holiday giveaway with one of my favorite brands!). See you then 😉
