This amazing vintage blouse is actually from my boyfriend’s Mom. She told me that she never wears it, so being the vintage lover I am I gladly took it into my possession. This top is very large, so I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off and make it work. Of course I gravitated towards the oversized ruffles and bold colors, but styling it was definitely a tricky task. I knew I had to pair it with something slimmed down on the bottom, so I chose skinny black jeans to balance out the top and give the look a modern vibe. I made sure to chose a pair with a high-waisted fit to give the top some shape. One of the easiest ways to style a crazy vintage blouse is with high-waisted jeans – it’s a foolproof styling tip!
I added length to my legs with purple ankle boots from NA-KD. I’m still just as obsessed with these boots now as I was when I first got them. They have definitely become my favorite pair this season, you can see them in these posts here & here. For my accessories, I went with a somewhat Summer theme (have to combat the cold somehow!) with a palm tree pin and round straw shoulder bag. I completed the look with gold earrings and statement rings.
