Do you ever find yourself attracted to something outside of your normal style? For me it’s usually some sort of print that I can’t take my mind off of. I’m not super feminine when it comes to my fashion choices, but for whatever reason I could not stop thinking about this plaid neck tie blouse.
For one, I’ve been looking to add a few more dressier tops to my fall wardrobe. I always feel like I have plenty of casual options, but I wear the same few dressy tops over and over and need to add more variety in that part of my wardrobe.
I think the reason I like this top so much is because it’s exaggerated. The plaid is classic, but on a large scale. The bow is classic, but very exaggerated.
I also like that I can wear it with black and blue — here I have it on with black jeans, and I think it could be dressed up by being tucked into a long black skirt. I also tried it on with blue jeans and black loafers and it looked great.
While it’s completely different from the edgier items I usually wear, I was strangely drawn to it and felt like it was the perfect top to add to my wardrobe this fall. Honestly, I feel like it’s one of those tops that I could literally wear for the rest of my life. When I’m old and want to hide everything — this top is perfect. A 33-year-old can wear it, and an 80-year-old can wear it!
Switching gears, I’m obsessed with this bucket bag. This new-to-me brand, Vasic, makes some gorgeous bags. I think I’ll be a customer of their for years to come. P.S. Ignore my grandma hand. I have crazy veins.
