Los Angeles, CA.
When I had a roommate, I’d always love to go through the large bags of clothes and shoes that she’d bring home after a long day of shopping. Not only was she a great little fashionista, but I always admired a very particular shopping habit of hers: if she loved something, she’d always grab at least 2 pairs, and usually more if they had more colors. She did this with purses, shoes, jeans, dresses- EVERYTHING! I’d be like, “Hey I love that navy purse!” and with a wry little smile she’d walk back to her closet and reveal that she also had it in nude and black as well. Unfortunately, I was always too plain Jane to do that, picking just one color or print and sticking to that option. However, I’ve become wise in my older age and I’ve realized that when you find something great, it’s best to just say, “I’ll take two!” And this is especially true with a classic, timeless pieces like this double pocket blouse I’m wearing today. Similar to the much pricier version you can find at J. Crew, I got these at Loopsway and love how the change in color adds a bit of variety on the look. I tried to emphasize that by keeping all of my other accessories exactly the same. Which do you guys like better?
This look is classic, a bit preppy, and east coast with a bit of a timeless spring/summer quality. It can be dressed down for a casual summer outing (like I have done here) or you can wear this as more of a business casual look for a work event. I paired the tan searsucker shorts from ZARA with my navy stiped clutch from the GAP , a yellow statement necklace from Ruche and finished the look off with some classic chocolate wedges from Steve Madden, which I found at Marshalls for a great little steal!
With classics that are affordable and just so essential to your every day wardrobe, it’s simply best to take two!
