As I explained in my previous post, I’m *really* into florals for spring, but I’m trying to find pieces that have a unique spin on the traditional flower pattern and this bow front blouse fits the bill.
It has a really unique color palette of ivories and yellows with a babydoll fit and large bow at the waist.
It’s incredibly flattering! It also closes with 2 buttons in the back, leaving the rest of your back open to the breeze. This is an on-trend feature but wearing a bra can be tricky so I’d recommend stick-on petals for this blouse.
Unfortunately I cannot find this blouse on Forever 21’s website anymore (bummer!) BUT I was recently at my local store and saw it there. I did link a similar style with the exact same print. Shop that below!
I paired this admittedly sexy blouse with…cargo pants! Maybe not something someone would associate with a “sexy/date night” type of blouse but these pants are SO flattering and fun and a great alternative to denim. They have great details and look way pricier than they are. I linked these exact pants below!
My husband and I shot this look on the roof of our building and every time we’re up there we both agree we don’t enjoy it enough. Such a beautiful spot!
SHOP THIS LOOK:
Coming at ya with a lil instagram roundup for the last week! I guess I’m not the only one LOVING all things off the shoulder because so many of you have been asking me how to buy these 2 tops!
First off, this lemon print is everything. I can’t tell you the last time I purchased anything at Forever 21 but when I saw this top I gave it a try and I’m so glad I did (I actually purchased 4 other things, so clearly they’re doing better lately in my eyes!)
The fabric is really soft and this OTS actually stays off the shoulder…which is great.
It has a great fit and an elastic waist so you could easily wear it with more of a crop top style.
For reference I’m wearing a regular size L. Unfortunately the regular sizes don’t show up online anymore so your best bet is in the store…but if you’re my size you could totally get away with the “plus” sized version in the smallest size.
Second look of this insta roundup is arguably my husband’s favorite. It just screams “date night!” This top from Nordstrom zips up the back with a built in corset style bra. The sleeves hang dramatically off the shoulder for a unique, definitely more sexy look. A look like this typically takes me outside of my comfort zone, but it’s casual enough it can be dressed up or down. I’d LOVE this with white denim, too. I just might do that next time! I wore this to dinner on a Friday night and got a ton of compliments from strangers and my husband. 🙂
Let me know what your favorite spring trends are!
Do you love all things off shoulder like me?
Until next time!
Love & Light,
