For this week's fashion post, I am sharing a top that will be "new" to you because I haven't shown it on my blog yet, but actually it's "old" because it has been hanging in my closet for almost a year. I bought this top when our local "Younkers" was going out of business. I only spent a few dollars on it, and I haven't worn it much because it kind of has a boxy fit. It does have lots of other redeeming values like the beautiful embroidery and the pretty flutter sleeves, so I keep it around for those cool/warm transitional days.
I've always been a fan of camel, red, and leopard print together so I thought this new/old top would work well with that color print combo.
A classic pea coat can be a great investment because they never go out of style. I bought mine years ago at JCPenney. I don't wear it much because our winters are too cold for pea coats (we really need long down-filled parkas here) but it's nice to have around for when the temperatures are a bit warmer. It was in the 40's the day we took these pictures! That's a heat wave for us in Wisconsin!
The pants are by Style and Co. from Macy's. I turned the cuff in so I'd have a shorter length to wear with flats: that is a trick one of my readers taught me and it has been a lifesaver. If you just cuff your pants the usual way (to the outside) it makes your legs look shorter and heavier, but if you cuff the pants to the inside, it does not. They really do stay up and do not come undone. A shorter, ankle length pants looks so much more flattering with flats than a longer leg length; so if you wear flats, I highly recommend cuffing the pants to make them shorter.
The top is a thin knit and is see-through so I wear a beige camisole with it. It's longer in back than it is in front and it has a slit on the sides. I love the length of this top.
The embroidery is just beautiful in this top and I love the unique flutter sleeves. It's a great top to wear during the transitional months.
My earrings were a Christmas gift from my daughter. I had them on my Amazon wish list and I will link them below. They are so well made and very inexpensive. What I love about them is that they are as light as a feather so they don't pull my ear lobe down like a lot of other heavy statement earrings. You also get several different styles with your order!
My leopard flats are super old, I purchased them from Target. The bag is also a new Christmas gift (from my son) off of my Amazon wish list, and I linked it up below.
