I always tell myself that instead of buying a bunch of lower priced items I'm going to save up and buy one high price item. This goal holds up for a few days, until I find myself perusing online sales or quickly running into H&M "just to look" and walking out with a few new items. I see the importance of investing in higher quality items, but a few of my most well worn and time tested items have actually come from lower cost stores. This chiffon blouse is exactly that, an item that was bought on a whim and has lasted me through many years and outfits. I love the peplum shape that is created with the soft chiffon waves, it's a summery approach to the angled shape of the thicker tops popping up. Paired with cropped jeans, simple ballet flats, feminine jewelry, and equally soft hued sunglasses, the outfit makes a warm weather look that feels great on breezy afternoons. Throw in a quick pre-dinner cocktail on the patio and the easy look appears quite feminine.
