Floral & Leather


When I first saw this floral print at J.Crew a few months ago, I was smitten by it. The ruffle around the neckline was subtle and on-trend and there were so many pretty colors in the pattern, I knew I could style this several ways, even into fall. Last weekend in Pittsburgh, I wore the blouse with the perfect fall layering piece: a faux leather jacket






Floral Blouse: J.Crew {extra 40% off with code YESPLEASE} | Cropped Jeans: cabi c/o {similar style HERE} | Faux Leather Jacket: BLANKNYC | Flats: Sam Edelman | Statement Earrings: old {similar style HERE} | Monogrammed Clutch: Mark and Graham {on sale!} | Rings: HERE & HERE | Nameplate Bracelet: Elizabeth Cole | Lips: #31 & #205

You may remember a few weeks ago in my fall trends under $100 series where I wrote about ruffles and mentioned that I had recently purchased a ruffle top {gasp!}. Well, this is it! And I have a confession: I have been wearing this blouse constantly over the past few weekends. It was cool to wear when we were having the heat wave in September and now that the nights are turning a little chilly, I've added the jacket. I bought the blouse when it first went on sale and shockingly, it's still in stock and has been reduced even further. It is true to size and the perfect length {I am about 5'8 for reference}. 

I couldn't pass on the chance to pull the pink shade from the blouse into my accessories, and these pink suede flats and my favorite monogrammed clutch were a match. I bought these suede flats during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and they are also still available. A cute and comfortable flat that comes in a few other colors as well!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We are going to Mt. Vernon for a Virginia wine tasting on Saturday evening, which happens to be outside, so we are hoping Hurricane Matthew stays far away. Stay safe to those of you that are in it's path!
