Confessions of a shopaholic: I walked by this shirt several times before purchasing it. I kept asking myself, am I really going to wear this? Do you ever do that? However, this top was on sale. It was about 60% off the ticket price and I couldn’t just leave it there, right? Believe it or not it hung in my closet for 2 months before I actually wore it. I guess I was waiting for the right time. Besides, it has bright red satin cherries all over it. Where am I going to wear it?
When shopping the clearance section, it’s great to find items that can be dressed up or dressed down. This blouse is fun, lightweight and you can roll the sleeves up if it is warm or let them out if its cooler. You can pair it with leggings, jeans, slacks or even a cute pencil skirt. I decided to go with my favorite la’gence jeggings and black slip on espadrilles. I had planned on getting my hair done and meeting a friend for lunch but #momlife and a home installation kept me at home most of the day.
So my style tip this week is don’t be afraid to wear cherries or bright colors or prints that you might not usually wear. Sometimes stepping out of the box leads to great things. Not just in fashion by the way. I have to tell you that I got a bunch of compliments when I finally wore it. I actually can’t wait to wear it again. How would you rock the cherry top?
