Although I am a very feminine woman (no one would describe me as athletic or tom boyish), I don't really like to dress girly, so I downplayed this "girly" pink top with a new pair of wide leg jeans from Mavi. I think Mavi is my favorite new jean brand. I know they're expensive, but they are so worth it, and I don't get out much, so one new pair of jeans a year is all I need.
My very expensive or "sumptuous" blouse cost me a whopping $20 at TJMaxx. I've actually showed this blouse to you before in THIS POST where I styled it with a black skirt for Valentine's Day.
It was the sleeves that really drew me to this blouse. They are 3/4 sleeve length balloon style sleeve -- so fun!
For jewelry, I chose a beaded necklace and matching drop earrings that had the same colors of my jeans and top. I also wore a multi-strand beaded bracelet.
I included this crazy picture just so you could see the detail of the sleeves.
And this photo I just included because Jackson photo bombed it. 😂. I know how some of you love seeing photos of Jackson.
Now be sure to check out what the other ladies are wearing this month. Hopefully they have more "Sumptuous Fabrics" in their closet then I do! And be sure to link up with below!
Have A Great Day! Amy

I think this is my favorite top of yours. I love everything about it. The cute details on the sleeves. The light weight flow. The color. I also think you could wear it so many different ways and from casual to very dressy. Love it Amy!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I bought it a year ago and I think this is only the second time I wore it. I really need to wear it more often.Delete
I've worn Mavi jeans in the past and love how they fit. Those look so cute on you! Your blouse is such a gorgeous color! Love the detail on the sleeves!ReplyDelete

Yes, Mavi jeans seem to fit me really well and I always feel comfortable in them. Thanks so much!Delete
Always love it when Jackson appears on your blog. So cute!!ReplyDelete
Love your outfit with this pretty feminine top! The wide leg jeans look great on you! I feel like wide leg pants swallow me up (I'm only 5'2") so slight flare jeans work better for me as long as they are fitted otherwise. So glad we have so many options with jeans nowadays!!
I know you do, that's why I included that photo. Thank you. I can totally understand why a shorter woman wouldn't want to wear wide leg pants. I'm 5'7. I don't like flares because they are tight everywhere and then flare out at the bottom and cover my shoes, but I've never tried on a slight flare. But yes, it's great that there is no longer just one style of jean that is trending and we have to wear that style whether we like it or not because it is trending.Delete
That is one pretty blouse! I really like it and that it can be worn dressed up or down.ReplyDelete
Yes, I think I haven't worn it much because I thought it could only be worn "dressy", but now that I tried it with jeans and love it, I will wear it more often.Delete
Such a pretty blouse. I love the details of the sleeves. It looks terrific worn with your jeans for a casual elegant look!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
That cracks me up that 40 degrees is too hot for a sweater. I'm wearing sweaters when it is 60 degrees, haha. But that top is absolutely lovely Amy. I can see why it works for you.ReplyDelete
Ha ha! Yes, us Wisconsinites are a tough bunch. People walk around outside in freezing cold weather without coats all the time. As soon as it hits 60 in spring the flip flops and short shorts come out.Delete
Great color on you Amy. I love the Mavi jeans too. Love that they include different lengths. I've recently discovered Lee Ultra Luxe bootcut jeans on Amazon which are super comfortable, and sumptuous!! But not in the money category ;-DReplyDelete
Thank you. Oh, I will have to check those out. I remember Lee jeans always fitting me well too.Delete
Oh I definitely think this fits the theme! That is such a lovely top and I like that sleeve detail so much.ReplyDelete
What a lovely blouse. Indeed sumptuous in my book. I was not thinking expensive fabric when I chose this prompt, but just soft, silky, pretty, feminine fabric. Something that is pleasing to the touch. And I think your blouse certainly fits the bill. The color is so soothing and pretty. I like the details on the sleeves. Great idea to pair this pretty blouse with a pair of jeans. Especially if that is most true to you!!ReplyDelete
Thank you. Oh, I know what you were thinking for the prompt, but I think you chose the word because the sound of the word sounded like what you meant rather than the actual meaning...does that make any sense? But I felt that since the word "sumptuous" was in my title, and my clothing was not "sumptuous" in the dictionary kind of way, I had better explain myself. I honestly didn't even know what the word "sumptuous" meant until I googled it the day before the challenge when I wrote the post, otherwise I would have suggested another word. Anyway, it was a good challenge, so thanks for suggesting it. Thanks so much.Delete
Beautiful blouse! This color suits you :)ReplyDelete
I think your look is perfect for this challenge because everything is open to interpretation! Your look reads as sumptuous or scrumptious because those sleeves are amazing! And, that is such a pretty color on you! I love these wide leg jeans, too! Just a fabulous look overall!ReplyDelete
Thank you Marsha!Delete

Next stop fashion week!ReplyDelete
Ha-ha! Not quite.Delete
Gorgeous! I like how you styled the pink blouse with the wide-leg jeans and a simple necklace. Great outfit! It looks soft and feminine without being overly frilly and fussy. Thank you for sharing this post in the Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 50.ReplyDelete
Thank you, that's exactly the look I was going for.Delete
This looks like such a fun challenge. I love what you are wearing that top is so pretty in this color with its statement sleeves. Good job! I wore lots of sumptuous fabrics to FW!ReplyDelete
Thank you! FW would be the best place to wear sumptuous fabrics!Delete
A fantastic top, Amy, and a great color. You look wonderful.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
What a pretty top to pull out for this post! I like that you kept it light with your shoes. I think this is a great casual look!ReplyDelete
This top is so pretty Amy! I adore the sleeves and feminine color.ReplyDelete
Amy, I love your pink top & jeans combination. I'm with you, I'm feminine but if I can get away with it, I like to pair things with jeans or leggings.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing this with Sweet Tea & Friends this month dear friend.
Thank you! I'm glad you can relate, and you're welcome!Delete
Thanks Paula. Glad to know a fellow jean/legging kinda gal!Delete
