Summer Neck Tie Blouse

Hello, friends! Cheers to the weekend! This is our last weekend before school starts so I’m hoping to make the most of it. My daughter who does cyber school actually started on Wednesday, but Monday is the first day I’ll have to get the other two kids up and out the door on time, and that’s always fun. (NOT!)

I’ve never been the mom to gradually start moving their schedules up so they’re getting up earlier to prepare for going back to school. We’re more of a rip-off-the-bandaid sort of family so it will be a rude awakening for several members of our household come Monday morning, but they’ll get used to it soon enough.

ANYWAY! Today I’ve got a fun summer look featuring this gorgeous floral neck tie blouse. I actually wore this outfit to church last Sunday.

I picked up this top when I was shopping in the Lucky Brand store last week, and they’re still running a BOGO 50% off deal on most apparel!

I played around with the neck tie and decided to loop it once and let it hang in the middle. You can tie it or let both pieces hang down as shown on the website, but this way seemed to work best for me. For size reference, I’m wearing a small, so you can probably size down if you’re in between. It fits perfectly, I just hope it doesn’t shrink at all!

Inspired by the muted color palette, I paired this top with white jeans and blush peep-toe booties.

I considered wearing my grey platform espadrille wedges, which would also look great with this outfit, and I hope to try this top with grey jeans and more casual shoes sometime as well. Wouldn’t these rose suede loafer slides be cute with that combination!?! There are so many possibilities with this pretty print.

These perforated peep-toe booties with the block heel and split shaft are great with so many outfits, and I’ve worn them a ton this summer. I’m going to be sad when it’s time to put them away for the season. As has been my experience with all my Vince Camuto boots, they’re supremely comfortable for a high heel and very easy to walk in.

My pedicure is Zoya Natty, by the way. I love this shade of blue.

These are my go-to white jeans — the Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies. I love how these fit, but I definitely recommend sizing up in these. They never seem to look worn or stretch out, and I’ve been wearing them regularly for going on two years now. I even wear them through the fall and winter. Stay tuned for styling tips and some fun looks with white jeans after Labor Day!

For a similar style at a more budget-friendly price point, check out these Penny skinnies from Liverpool Jeans Company. They have almost the same measurements for inseam and leg opening as the Paige Verdugo style but with a higher rise. You can also take a look at my White Jeans Review for more white denim options.

Here’s a look at the outfit from behind. I really like the length of this top. I find it so much more flattering than the longer, more voluminous tops that have been trending for a while.

I accessorized with a mix of gold and silver jewelry. I’ve mentioned these David Yurman bracelets before. They were both gifts from my husband and I wear them often. I don’t believe in saving designer jewelry for special occasions. They’re made to be worn and enjoyed, and that’s what I do!

And these earrings are new from the Lucky Brand store. I like them because they’re big but delicate so they don’t overwhelm my outfits but are still visible under my dark hair. They also have a combination of silver, yellow gold, and rose gold metals so they go with just about anything else I’m wearing.

With summer quickly coming to an end, this is one of the last summer outfits I’ll be posting! It’s hard to believe it, but 26 Days of Fall Fashion starts one week from today on September 1st!

Cyndi and I are super excited to team up once again for our 3rd annual fall fashion challenge, where we will bring you a total of 52 new outfits for your fall style inspiration so stay tuned for that!

 

And it’s Friday, so that means linkup day! If you have a fashion blog, I’d love for you to join us. If you’re here for your weekly dose of style inspiration, you’ll find plenty of that here. Have a beautiful weekend!
