Early in the Morning


As much as I hate the summer heat and humidity, I’ll be sorry when it’s over, taking the light with it. Already, the days are getting shorter and shorter. I won’t be able to take these before-work shots outdoors for long.


Blouse, Charlotte Russe. Skirt, Side x Side (thrifted, shortened, and embellished). Shoes, Miss Me. Earrings, H&M (swap).


Lots of silly dancer-y poses this morning.

All the ways I’ve worn this lovely, but difficult-to-style blouse:


It has an elasticized, drop waist that I'm always trying to obscure.

For a blouse that is difficult, I love all the ways you've found to style it!

All the different solutions you've found are really inspiring. I'm going to have to try and utilize more of my difficult to style pieces.

That is such a pretty blouse. The waist would drive me crazy. I wonder if there is some way to un-eleasticized it?

I love seeing all your past stylings of that blouse. I'm with you, though, I loathe those drop-waist elastic bottomed tops. Arg, such a pain.

Rosa said...

that skirt is absolutely darling! that blouse is very pretty too, love seeing how you've styled it previously!

Iris said...

I like the detail of the blouse but, I understand why it's so difficult to style. You have done a great job!

Sal said...

Lovely indeed - and I think this iteration of the blouse is my fave.

Love the skirt with this blouse - the blue and pink work nicely together!

I know you have longer, rougher winters than I do, so I can't help but look forward to Fall and layering season again. Of course you manage to layer successfully no matter what season it is.
