and my love affair with Talbots Parisian collection is still going strong. school girl blouses with a feminine bow are on trend this fall. my take was a lace version with a scalloped hem and velvet bow. what a simple, yet elegant look that will pair perfectly with velvet pants come holiday season. yes, christmas is 118 days away. i know, i know, we haven’t even made it to labor day. but as we all know we’ll blink and it will be time to wrap presents.
but back to today’s ootd. many times when i sport a feminine item, i like to balance it with something masculine. so i reached for a military blazer. this one is last season from Zara. but Talbots has a gorgeous twill version this fall. the collar is piped in red, take a look here. there’s something about big brass buttons that make my heart go pitter patter.
since it’s date night, a pair of nude pumps is back in action. take a look here for a lower heel. plus, black beaded earrings for a little extra glamor. if you prefer a more casual outfit just exchange the pumps for flats the clutch for a structured bag and any old earrings you prefer. gotta love choices, ladies. isn’t it fun to tweak your style?
are you ready for tuesday? i know i am because when wednesday rolls into town, it will only be 117 days until christmas. just sayin’.
