Flowy and fancy free

American Apparel Blouse | GAP Jeggings | Steve Madden boots (similar)

This blouse is a very uncharacteristic piece for me.
It's something I would never go for automatically, but after seeing my sister style it
I was completely hooked.
It had to be mine - it would be mine
...and I would figure out how to style it later.
Lucky for me, I had a TeamBuy coupon that I needed to use up
so I was able to take a chance.

I'm so happy I did. This piece is fantastic 
-and I've only figured out how to style it one way, using two different bottoms 
(these jeans and a pair of shiny American Apparel leggings for a nighttime feel.)
How would you go about styling this piece, or one like it?
Would you try toning down the contrast with a neutral layering underneath?


  1. I really love your style. Added you to my blogroll yesterday :)

  2. it is such a great color on you!! you could always try belting it or even tucking it into a pencil skirt, but i defiantly love what you have done here!!

  3. There are endless possibilities to style this shirt! It has such a lovely colour :) x

  4. This shirt is all kinds of gorgeous! Especially on you!

    HOW have I not been to your lovely blog before. I will most definitely be following ;)


  5. oh man, that shirt is so amazing!  we had a groupon to aa and ended up getting sweatpants....lame.  

  6. This is really lovely on you, the color is fabulous. I think it could look awesome with a vest. Or maybe some shorts + tights. And at some point you should probably wear it out with the tallest heels that you own.

  7. YAY! It's such a gorgeous blouse in such a pretty colour. I have one just like this in purple and I love to do the half-tuck in the front. I also roll up the sleeves, just because I roll up the sleeves on everything. Sometimes I put a cardigan over it too? Hahah there are some ideas for you! 

  8. Yay!  Love this blouse!  I have been on a shear kick for quite some time.  There are a lot of ways to wear it that are completely acceptable and this one is no exception.  I love the skinnies and the boots!  It would look great under a dress as well!  Or unbuttoned with a cute top underneath.  The possibilities are endless!

  9. This shirt is such a gorgeous colour! I would probably suggest tucking it in to a skirt or belting it over a dress? I look forward to it's next appearance!

  10. I would wear it with a sequin skirt for going out, or with a furry vest or oversized sweater layered over top for everyday. I love the color!

  11. Let me continue my tried and true tradition of feeling the need to comment on every single one of your posts. ;)

    I have this blouse in plaid and in sea foam green. I've worn it with skinnies, boyfriend jeans, buttoned, unbuttoned, as a beach cover-up, over shorts... I've had thoughts to style it with a midi/maxi skirt, tucked in or belted... the possibilities may be endless. ;) - And now I am going to wear it tomorrow. Tucked into skinny cords in the front! Thank you for the inspiration haha.

  12. It's such a great color...but I personally like to style bright colors with neutral colors - exactly how you did it. I think it looks great :)

  13. Would look great tucked into a high waisted pencil skirt or trouser. ;)
    I do love the way you've styled it. Super cute and comfy looking.

  14. PICK ME, PICK ME!  My hand is raised really high.  Okay my answer is, exactly like this, but in cooler temps wear a short fitted blazer and a scarf!  Did I win?  Was it a contest??

  15. Oh my goodness. This wasn't contest. You are SUCH an effin' keener though - and your stylin tip made me gasp slightly imagining how amazing that would be - that I turned it into a last minute contest in honour of your brilliance. So, congratulations, you won! 

  16. That top is gorgeous, such a great color, glad you took a chance on it :)

  17. I've decided to return to the scene of my comment and add on that I remembered I have it in floral print too. Bahaha.

  18. Love this blouse and this outfit....so cute! I would probably style it the same way you did...I always go for the boots! But that's unoriginal....so how about tucked into a brightly colored pencil skirt with some opaque tights and wedges? Just found your blog...I'm a new follower :)

  19. Oooo I'm really liking the idea of the pencil skirt and wedges... I only own summer wedges though so it looks like I get to go on a shopping spreeeeeeee

  20. Thanks!! comfy is pretty much my top priority...

  21. I definitely think this is a great minds situation. If it's not broke, don't fix it!

  22. hahah I love it! You are totally obsessed with this amazing top and it's fantastic! It makes me want to get a bunch more.

    I'm sorry I jinxed your roll though! Being frustrated with styling it the day after I posted - it's OBVIOUSLY my fault!

  23. Yeah sheesh way to go. ;)

  24. I love this and I will copy it tomorrow. 

  25. I love this blouse and the colour is stunning on you. I would probably tend to style it the way you have too. I'm really loving sheer blouses this fall. You could also try tucking it into a mini skirt or a pair of khakis with a belt.

  26. I have a shirt similar to this and every once in a while I like to wear it with just my most awesome black bra underneath. It makes me feel badass AND feminine. She-BAM!
