The problem with taking quick pictures before work is there's no time to check proofs, no full length mirror for adjustments, just shoot, take the memory card, and go. The belt was supposed to be hidden. While this blouse is gorgeous, it's a bit too long for me. I decided to use a belt to blouse it, and I knew the belt was hidden from view. However after hugging a child and a dog, putting things in my car, dashing back to the house to get my forgotten iPhone, the shirt shifted and the belt was in view and Karl didn't know it was to be styled in any other manner. Oh well, you can get the idea!
I ordered this top from Gwynnie Bee thinking I could wear it to Forecastle with distressed denim shorts per this post. It really is a perfect summer blouse – it looks dressy but it's that crepey fabric that doesn't cling, and it has an exposed zipper in back that really dresses it up. While I paired it with white jeans, this would also look lovely with ivory or brown trousers or traditional indigo denim. I know I wear a lot of dresses from Gwynnie Bee, but as you see they have all sorts of clothing to rent. Click this link and get a free 30-day trial to check out the program for yourself!
I'll be heading to NYC this week with Sally from Already Pretty to work on a really cool project for Foxcroft (I'll be sure to share it here on the blog when it's ready!) but I'd love to meet some of you if you're in town. We'll be at the Pig N’ Whistle on 36th at 8:00pm on Wednesday, July 24th and we'd love to hang with you!
