Keeping It Casual - 4 (Link Up)

F21 sweater, blouse, earrings, and bangles, LOFT jeans, Steve Madden clutch, Shoedazzle heels (here), sunglasses (here)

I can't say that we have too many cold days in the South but it was bone-chilling cold the day we took these pictures. What made it worse was the constant wind. I think this was the fastest we have ever taken pictures. So I have respect for all of you up North who have made it through the winter looking fabulous!!



This blouse has been sitting in my closet for several months now and I have only worn it once. I try and wear things in my closet more than once. It just seems like a waste to not have at least three or four different ways to wear something. Of course, this sweater was hanging a mere two feet away from it for all this time and I finally noticed that it would be perfect. Do you ever do that? I've actually put together a few outfits lately with pieces that have been hanging in my closet for ages. Why does it take me so long to figure out that they go together?

I realize that heels may not be considered 'casual' but this is a laid-back look for me. And since I'm officially obsessed with these shoes, I thought I would wear them yet again. If you don't have any white heels yet, now is the time to get some! I love mine but I wouldn't mind having these as well...

Don't forget to vote for me in the Wallis Ambassador Contest here. Thanks a million! 

And don't forget to enter the Poppy Boutique giveaway here.

Linking up with Shanna at Because Shanna Said So for Random Wednesdays.

Have a great day!

  1. I LOVE that chevron print blouse!! And that mustard clutch is a great color to mix with the blues...something I wouldn't have thought to pair together. Thanks once again for hosting; I'm happy to be joining in for another week! :)

  7. I do the exact same thing, sometimes I buy something and don't wear it for months and then it's like a light bulb goes off and I can style it 100 different ways. I love that blouse paired with the sweater it's as if they were made for each other!

  11. I love that blouse and it does go perfectly with that sweater! Gorgeous look. I definitely do the same thing... leave pieces in my closet because I only wear them one way and can't find a way to remix it. I am in the process of spring cleaning my closet so I'm hoping inspiration strikes when I find great pieces that have been neglected.

  21. I love the idea of wearing a longer patterned top under a shorter sweater- sometimes if its a little short you can't wear it alone. Wearing them together just makes sense!

  30. I love that blouse! Mint and navy is one of my very favorite combinations. And I love that it is chevron. And I do not like the cold weather either. If I lived somewhere cold, I would be living in a snowsuit and be like the little brother on A Christmas Story ("I can't put my arms down!") I'm ready for spring to come and stay!

  36. I love blue and mint together! I know how you feel about the cold being from the South myself. I consider anything under 70 to be freezing lol

  37. You should definitely wear that blouse more...I love it. But I can see how you would have to take some breaks since it's such a bold print. But it looks great!

  39. That happens to me all the time- I buy something and only do I end up wearing it weeks later after I finally figure out the perfect pieces that go with it!

    Lovely post and i also just entered your Poppy Boutique giveaway :)

  43. I hate it when I only wear something once - feels like such a waste! Glad you've found a new way to style the top, and I hope you find many more!

  44. Amy! That chevron top and this look is spot on! Beautiful girl! Voted for you again in Wallis Contest!

  45. Only worn this once?! Definitely need to get more action out of it. Can see it being really cute with a pair of denim cut offs or white chino shorts, maybe? Love it layered with the sweater so you only get a peek of the blouse. Pretty!!
