I'm so excited to share this post with you guys, because today is my first foray into fashion blogging! I'm by no means a model or a seasoned fashionista but I do l.o.v.e. to get dressed up whenever I go out so this was a lot of fun for me and I hope to do more posts like it very soon!
CHOiES.com is an online fashion retailer that sells trendy and affordable clothing, accessories, jewelry and more. They gave me $80.00 to spend and I got two great pieces. The first thing I chose was this fabulous striped blouse, because an item this versatile never goes out of style.
It's timeless, chic and slimming which makes it a fabulous wardrobe staple to have on hand for any occasion. Simply switching up the accessories will allow this outfit to transition seamlessly from casual to formal, or even professional. I'll show you four other ways to wear this blouse at the end of the post but for now, here's how I styled it.
CHOiES.com | Striped Wrap Blouse ($36.99)
Here you can see some of the detailing of the blouse. Because this is a wrap blouse (meaning no buttons, clasps, zippers, etc) with a very, very deep neckline you absolutely must wear something underneath. I chose a black sequin tank, but any basic camisole will do just fine. There's also a faux pocket flap on the left breast but no actual pockets anywhere, so be sure to style this with a cute clutch to carry all your necessities in.
H&M | Blue Skinny Jeans ($12.95)
Since Springtime in Canada is basically "Winter: The Sequel", I wore this out with long pants and a Military pea coat to keep warm but you can style this shirt almost any way you want.
Here are some other ways you might want to wear it. Which one is your favorite?
There's literally no limit to the ways that you can wear this blouse! Dress it up, dress it down, wear it with pants, shorts, skirts, layer it over pieces and under pieces, your style options are limitless. Every girl needs a shirt this versatile in her closet! Not to mention, stripes were all over the Spring '13 runways which means this shirt is totally on trend for the coming months.
