WIWW: Blousy Top + Flared Trousers

July 11, 2012 by Trina 19 Comments

I have a treat for you today at the end of the post!  Here’s a hint, you’re getting TWO for the price of ONE today…But don’t scroll down just yet!   First, the outfit inspiration.  I spotted this outfit on Pinterest the other day and knew I could put together a similar look with what I had in my closet already.

{I have no idea where this photo originally came from, Pinterest lead to tumblr which lead back to Pinterest…so weird.  Anyway, if you know please clue me in so I can give proper link credit!}

So this is my take.  I love this blousy top from Express.  I picked it up in three colors but would love to have more!  They are perfect with skinnies, shorts, skirts and trousers :)

Blouse: Express {now on clearance}, Trousers: Kasil from a Hautelook sale, Necklace: Belk clearance rack {similar}, Shoes: Dolce Vita for Target {similar}, Ring: Ebay, Clutch: Wet Seal, Polish: Julep’s Rose

I tried a few belts thinking I’d like that look better, but nothing was working.  So I just took the inspiration photo’s lead and went beltless!  I wore this to church, then to a housewarming party afterwards, then to the grocery store.

Ok so for today’s treat!  Rayna was known as Ms. Skinny Jeans at school last year because that was literally all she wore.  When she saw me wear the flared trousers on Sunday she begged me for some flares of her own.  So Monday after VBS the kids and I went and scoured the thrift store for some flares and also collared shirts for Xander.  We hit the jackpot on both.

Rayna wanted to show off her “new” jeans “for the blog” and she put together this outfit.  She was so cute asking me if I could take a full shot, then one of her shoes and “put them all together just like you do on yours momma”.  She knows the way to her momma’s heart, haha!

Peplum tank: Old Navy, Flares: Old Navy thrifted, Flats: Target, Hair: Braided “headband” by yours truly ;)
