BLUSH LACE-UP BACK TOP + LEOPARD CLUTCH -- UNDER $35

TOP: NORDSTROM RACK -- JEANS: VINCE -- EARRINGS: SUGARFIX -- CLUTCH: HAZEL & OLIVE BOUTIQUE -- SHOES: SAM EDELMAN -- CABLE BRACELETS: DY & DY -- CHAIN BRACELET: DY,  H BRACELET: HERMES -- POLISH: ESSIE

ONE OF MY MOST RECENT OBSESSIONS AND A GROWING TREND IS THE LACE-UP, OPEN BACK TOP, LIKE THIS ONE I’M SHARING WITH Y’ALL TODAY. WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT THIS KIND OF TOP, IS THAT YOU’RE PRACTICALLY ADDING ANOTHER “ACCESSORY” TO YOUR OUTFIT WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANY EXTRA WORK. IT IS A PRETTY DETAIL, WHICH ADDS A BIT OF SASS TO ANY OUTFIT.

I SPECIFICALLY LOVE THIS TOP I’M SHARING WITH YOU TODAY FOR MANY REASONS. FIRST OFF, IS THIS COLOR! BLUSH IS ONE OF THOSE COLORS THAT LOOKS GOOD ON ANY SKINTONE, AND IF BLUSH ISN’T YOUR FAV COLOR, THE TOP ALSO COMES IN OLIVE GREEN. NEXT IS THE PRICE AND FIT OF THE TOP. THIS TOP IS ON SALE FOR UNDER $35 (SHOP IT HERE), AND THE FIT IS GREAT. THERE IS A LITTLE ROOM TO MOVE, WITHOUT FEELING LIKE YOU’RE WEARING A POTATO SACK. THE TOP IS OPEN IN THE BACK WITH THE LACE-UP DETAIL GOING FROM THE TOP TO ABOUT HALF DOWN THE BACK. THERE IS ALSO A LAYER OF FABRIC, WHICH ALLOWS FOR THE DETAILING TO SHOW A BIT OF SKIN BEHIND THE LACE-UP, BUT WITHOUT HAVING TO SHOW FULL SKIN ALL THE WAY DOWN THE BACK. LASTLY IS THE MATERIAL. THIS TOP IS A LINEN BLEND, SO THERE IS TEXTURE TO THE MATERIAL, GIVING IT A MORE EXPENSIVE LOOK. (WHO DOESN’T LOVE THAT??)

I’M ALSO SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS FOLDOVER LEOPARD CLUTCH I FOUND. IT’S A DUPE FOR THE CLARE V. CLUTCH EVERYONE LOVES, WHICH RETAILS AT $275! THE CLUTCH IS FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEXAS BOUTIQUES (HAZEL & OLIVE), AND LIKE THE TOP, IT IS ALSO UNDER $35. FOR THAT PRICE, THIS CLUTCH IS A GREAT BUY. IT CAN BE WORN WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT OUTFITS, AND AFTERALL, LEOPARD IS A NEUTRAL RIGHT?

FOR MY OUTFIT SHOWN ABOVE, I PAIRED THE LACE-UP TOP AND LEOPARD CLUTCH WITH A SIMPLE PAIR OF WHITE SKINNY JEANS, A CHUNKY BLACK HEEL (WHICH ARE ON SALE FOR UNDER $70, SHOP THEM HERE), AND A FUN PAIR OF STATEMENT EARRINGS (WHICH ARE ON SALE FOR UNDER $7, SHOP THEM HERE)! THE WHOLE OUTFIT IS AFFORDABLE, FASHIONABLE, AND VERSITALE. YOU COULD ALSO SWITCH UP THE OUTFIT FOR DAYTIME AND WEAR THE TOP WITH JEAN OR LACE SHORTS AND FLAT SANDALS INSTEAD OF HEELS. IT WOULD ALSO BE CUTE WITH A PAIR OF LIGHTLY DISTRESSED BOYFRIEND JEANS AND SANDALS. THERE REALLY ARE SO MANY OPTIONS WITH THIS TOP AND THE CLUTCH COULD BE AN EVERYDAY GRAB AND GO CLUTCH.

ON ANOTHER NOTE, DON’T FORGET, FATHER’S DAY IS THIS SUNDAY! YOU CAN STILL SHOP MY FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE. (CLICK HERE)

HAPPY EARLY FATHER’S DAY TO ALL THE AMAZING MEN OUT THERE!
