Thanks for joining me today on Turning heads Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and got to enjoy it outside with the family. Nothing says Spring and Summer like a detailed white blouse. With all of the beautiful styles out there in stores, I could find myself addicted to buying nothing but white blouses, but I have some control! 🙂 I have a few in my closet, a trimed tank is white lace, a white corset top, polka dot blouse, and a few more, but i am sure I will add one or two more beyond this style this year. It was love at first sight with this top… the scalloped trim and eyelet design just won me over. It is light , in cotton, and perfect for a casual or dressy look. For reference, it is a size 4, and roomy, purchased on Mango.
I knew I was due for a dress or skirt, but I thought it would pair perfectly with a pair of lighter boyfriend jeans. What else says Spring or summer to me, but espadrilles, so I am wearing a fun cognac pair by Franco Sarto I found on 6pm last year. WIthout repeating my straw circle bag. I decided upon my straw clutch- I couldn’t resist! Did you all go “crazy” with the Memorial Day Sales, or did you restrain yourself ? 🙂 I did buy 2 dresses for summer, and look forward to sharing them on the blog!
We did some “around the house’ things this weekend, having to choose colors for our Great Room, foyer, hall and stairway. I have chosen all of the colors for the house so far, so hubby wanted me to decide, and he would make his contribution. We put colors up on the darker sections of the wall, then lighter, choosing three shades of blue for the great room and two shades for the foyer etc. The great room will be a steel blue color with a chocolate brown sectional and dark brown leather coffee table- I am getting new curtains, so I am thinking navy might look beautiful. I wanted a serene color, a peaceful shade, that would make it welcoming to enter the room. Most of our house is neutrals- taupes, golden yellows, olive, a lighter blue and now sage and steel blue. Looks like I have nature in mind- browns, greens and blues. 🙂 So, I will be thrilled when the painter comes at the end of June and its done!
I know I mentioned my mom will visit the 3rd week of June, and we have already started the planning, although we get a bit ambitious and not able to do half the stuff we plan, nevertheless… If taking a boat our on Lake Norman doesn’t pan out, my sis, neice, husband and I, along with the pups will take the day in July. We have some good times planned..hopefully most outdoors!
Back to the Look
These light denim BF jeans are from LOFT, I bought them years ago and liked the baggier, boyfriend fit. The flowier top makes for a pretty, casual look and I will also be wearing this with either white trousers or white denim shorts as the weather gets hotter. I adore an all white look in the warm months. Speaking of staying cool, I wrote about Linen – Trending Now- ( have a read!) You may be seeing this top styled different ways this summer, seeing how versatile pretty white blouses are! Speaking of wardrobe staples for the warmer months, I know I will be wearing my denim skirt in the Spring/Summer- read about it in this post-Not Interested in Shorts? Wear a Denim Skirt this Summer.
Sometimes in the summer, I like to keep accessories simple. I am wearing a pair of white ball drop earrings from Target, added my straw clutch from Mango, and for a touch of color, added my favorite cuff gifted from Uncommon Goods.
Are you a fan of white blouses in the Spring/Summer? What details do you like to see on a white blouse?
