You know that feeling at the beginning of a new season when you switch or rearrange your closet for warmer or cooler weather? (I suppose this won’t truly apply to you southern folks, but humor me?) It’s a wonderful feeling. It’s almost like having an entirely new wardrobe that was hidden away for months – new possibilities, new outfits, NEW LEASE ON LIFE!! You strut around like the badass babe you are for weeks on end, flaunting your style, when – as suddenly as it arrived – the season shifts and those clothes get boxed away for another day. OR DO THEY?! Let’s chat about season spanning styles: taking a piece you particularly love and making it work for as many months as possible. For starters – how about a boho blouse?
Just like everything else Pink Blush has sent me, I fell in love with this blouse from minute one. The website indicated a longer length but I was ridiculously happy to find they truly meant it – tunics are my JAM. I was also thrilled to discover that the long sleeves had an elastic band, meaning that when I wear them pushed up and out of the way of my dinner (I’m messy, get over it) they STAY up, and keep me cool at the same time.
Stepping off my soapbox now to return to the topic at hand – season spanning styles. I knew when I ordered it that I would have no problem pairing this top with distressed denim and gold slides on a breezy summer night – but as soon as it arrived, I knew I’d find a way to wear during fall too. I switched out the denim for my favorite Zella leggings and OTK Hinge boots, adding a tank underneath and this gorgeous sweater vest on top for a cooler weather alternative.
OH and that bag? Can we talk about that bag?! OBSESSED. The perfect camel color and the worn-in leather would have been enough but – see that tassel? It’s attached to a clutch. A clutch THAT YOU CAN REMOVE AND USE ON ITS OWN. GUYS ITS TWO PURSES IN ONE. BOGO ALL UP IN THIS BEYOTCH FOR ONLY $25.
I shouldn’t be allowed to use caps lock…
I’ve got so many great pieces that fall under this “season spanning styles” category that I can’t wait to share with you. Please tell me you all own olive jeans already?? Excellent. And did you catch that delicious looking drink in the photo above? Go buy some limoncello and check back soon for my new favorite cocktail ; ) #happyhour
