TOP green smocked top (wearing size 4US, but wish I’d ordered a 2US) | BAG senreve midi maestra in pebbled chestnut | SHOES caramel ballet flats (chanel, similar linked) | JEANS abercrombie skinny jeans (these are my favorite! wearing a 25 short) | EARRINGS gold and white floral dangle earrings (sold out from Liza Yates, similar here) | HEADBAND white knotted headband (old Anthropologie, similar linked)
I’ve always loved green, but lately, it’s been creeping more and more onto my radar. There’s something timeless and transient about green, and this beautiful blouse perfectly showcases why I’m crushing on this hue as of late!
The floral fabric is a lovely, crisp cotton fashioned sweetly into a smocked neckline. And you know how I feel about a puffed-sleeve… feminine through and through!
I love the attainable price point, as well. This blouse looks far more expensive than $55, and since it will work gorgeously into fall as well (just picture it with dark-wash denim and boots!), you’re really getting a wonderful piece for the price!
I typically size up to a 4US in Topshop, since the line tends to run a bit small. That’s what I ordered in this top as well, but to my surprise, it fit a little bit big. (Nothing egregious, though, I’ll still be keeping it.) So in this particular instance, my advice? Order your normal blouse size and disregard the “(fits like ___)” on the side. So, for example, I would in retrospect order a 2US.
Here are a few other pieces I’m green with envy over. Get it?
all things green
As you may have seen on Instagram, I road tripped to the beach on Friday and am so happy to be here for the week with my much-missed family! While we typically have a marathon of restaurant-visits lined up for this week, this year we’re staying in and cooking at home. While I miss our favorite spots, it’s been wonderful and so, so restful to go straight from the beach to dinner in pajamas!
I do have few fun posts planned for this week ahead, so stay tuned!
Love from the Sunshine State,
