I am 100% of a sucker for stately clothes–especially pieces that can be worn year-round. So, when I got this AH-MAZING Kate Spade chambray bow blouse for my birthday last week, I 100% jumped for joy! Oh, y’all–I was happier than a 14 year old girl with front row tickets for a Justin Bieber concert *wink*
At first, I was a little skeptical about the bow being so close to my face because usually things that close make my face look fat/round; however, I tossed my hair up + put on some glitzy earrings and TAH DAHHH….fabulousness! The texture of this lovely chambray top is soft and not scratchy, and surprisingly, it pairs effortlessly with lots of different things in my closet! From jeans and clogs to party skirts and vintage-inspired oxfords, this Kate Spade chambray bow top has become one of my stately wardrobe staples in less than a week’s time!
*fangirl scream* I love this Kate Spade blouse SO SO SOOOOO much, and I am pretty sure I could wear it everyday, everywhere, and with anything, BUT instead, I will just do a VIP Three Ways to Wear later *wink*
Now, without further ado, take a look at the photos, outfit details, and a VIP fashion tip below!
VIP Fashion Tip For Styling Stately Pieces
When styling stately pieces for the office or brunch with friends, it is important to remember to play down the other elements of your outfit. Doing this will help you create a chic ensemble that will have everyone looking twice *wink* For accessories, go minimalistic. If you want to add a little sparkle, keep it simple like with the glitzy studs I am wearing in today’s outfit.
If you have been keeping up with me on my social media today, you already know that it is my BIRTHDAY! Ah! And for those of you who have been off social media and out shopping killer Black Friday sales…SURPRISE–it’s my birthday *wink*
So, in celebration of the wonderful day I had with my family, I am going to share a few of the highlights with y’all! :)
Whoo hoo, it’s Friday, and exactly ONE week from now…it will be my birthday! Ah! If that doesn’t call for a little online Etsy wishing…then I do not know what does *wink* So, without further ado, here are some Fabulous Friday Finds via Etsy–let’s take a look :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD–PAW RILEY!
Today is my Paw Riley’s birthday, and since I cannot be there in person this year….I decided to ship him a “Birthday Box” full of goodies + make a video so that we could celebrate together…ten hours apart. Yes, Paw Riley, this means you can NOW open your Birthday Box that arrived at your house a day early *wink*
I will admit that I teared up several times while making Paw’s birthday box–all I could think about is how much I miss him…*sniff, sniff*
Now, before I go drown my “missing Paw Riley” sorrows at Starbucks, take a moment to watch his “Birthday Box” video–I think y’all will enjoy it:)
