I’ve begun to realize that when you find an easy blouse you can throw on with just about anything, that’s when you’ve really hit the jackpot. It’s not a top that jumps off the rack at you – it’s a bit more subtle, a little more basic, but because of that, all the more wearable.

Case in point? This $35 little thing from Nordstrom. I first stopped because of the color (this girl is obsessed with anything deep green) and while I didn’t think much of the silhouette on the hanger, knew I’d found a gem once I got to the fitting room.

It has a chic, blousy fit that you can rock with everything from pumps to riding boots, on it’s own or layered up under a jacket. (Like this one I just bought!) Plus, it’s offered in six colors, including the staples black and white. A Vince look for a whole lot cheaper? This, my friends, is a keeper.

(Thanks for indulging me in that little poem, y’all, I was feeling rather inspired.)

Love from Texas,


P.S. The leopard pumps I’m wearing today and you’ve seen in quite a few posts this fall? I love ’em so much I just picked up this darling pair in pink. Y’all! They. are. the. best. And so comfortable. And literal Barbie shoes. I’m so excited!

  4. Love those leopard pumps! I have several leopard shoes but I think a pair of pumps in the print are my next move. That is a great price point for a Vince lookalike! Thanks for sharing!

    Is the name of the color of that shirt truly Ivy Green? It appears different than what is on the Nordstrom website. The closest I see is thyme.
