Basic Blouse

F21 blouse, Francesca's jeans, Tinley Road pumps, unknown belt, F21 bangles,
handmade earrings, Essie's 'status symbol' polish

There is something I just love about a basic blouse with jeans. I got this sheer blouse at F21 (I promise I shop other places y'all) for only $10. I just can't pass up good deals when they come my way. I mean, it was practically begging me to buy it!

I love these flare jeans but didn't realize how short they looked until I posted the pictures. When I do a flare leg pant, I love for them to be long enough that the shoes just barely peek out from beneath them. One thing I love about my blog is that I see myself, hopefully as others see me, so I can change things when they don't work. Sometimes the mirror lies to you!




Have a fabulous day!

  17. Sometimes a simple outfit is just the best and this one is definitely no exception. And I agree- sometimes I see so much better what works for an outfit after I have snapped my photos.

  25. I agree, sometimes the mirror totally lies. I've definitely taken pictures in the morning, looked at the camera, and then changed! Great color on those trouser jeans, though!

  35. Oh my gosh, how gorgeous! Love your style. It's similar to mine :) When I wear flare pants, I usually like for them to be long enough that my shoes barely show too. I'm a short person, and that style just elongates my legs! Very nice blog.

  36. This 70s-inspired look is so fun. I can't seem to get away from my skinny jeans but seeing you wear flares makes me want to give it a whirl.

  41. Thanks for stopping by my blog. My fashion these days is just jeans and a t-shirt. I just posted today about a party where I was surprised at how tall all the young girls were and then realized it was their shoes. The high heels are amazing! And fun too. That's how much I've lost touch, so I guess I will come back and visit you to stay informed at least.

    1. Thanks so much! I am always wearing heels which makes me so much taller than my husband. Of course my norm is 5 inch heels so who wouldn't be a little taller? :) Thanks for stopping by!

  45. Such a cute blouse (and $10 is a steal!!) I love how you paired it with dark jeans and a pop of red from the belt (and it would be a cute outfit for the Fourth too since it's red, white and blue!)
    I also answered your vegan question on my blog (I didn't want to bombard your page with the response, but basically it is just a plant-based diet!)
