Howdy party people! Long time, no post. I've been insanely busy with work and haven't been able to match free times with a photographer, but after a long hiatus, I'm finally posting again.
I've been super into silky fabrics lately and usually I only stick to solid colors with silky things, but the floral print on this blouse is absolutely stunning and the muted color of the silk balances out the brightness of the flowers. A lot of places, especially Zara, have been making Asian inspired silk blouses and dresses lately, so silk with floral print is everywhere. I also really love the fact that this is a wrap blouse because the tie on the side cinches in the waist and is very flattering for a lot of body types. Also the fact that the V on this isn't super low is a bonus because cleavage can be my nemesis with a lot of V-neck tops, but this doesn't make me feel like I'm displaying too much.
I paired this with wide-leg cropped pants because I thought why not pair volume with volume? Because the blouse is cinched, the outfit ends up looking balanced even with a flowy top and bottom. Honestly, I think everyone should own a pair of black wide-leg cropped pants. They are literally so versatile--you can wear them with sneakers and a plain white tee and look super casual or with heels, a nice blouse, and bold necklace and be ready for an art gallery opening.
I decided to go with sneakers for this look. It balances the top half with the bottom. The shirt is super chic and dressy, the pants are versatile (so in-between), and the shoes are very casual. So all together they create a semi-nice, semi-casual look. Sleek but edgy.
Let me know what you guys think! Do you like the asian-inspired trend? Do you like the sneakers with this?
P.S. I've been experimenting with Lightroom filters and this was the first one I kinda liked. What do you think? Like it? Hate it? Any suggestions?
