My Four Year Anniversary Look
I recently understood that there is a gaping hole in the chasm of my closet, and it is: fancy summer tops. I've got plenty of lace, sparkle, and shine to wear all winter long. Yet in hot weather, my selection of beautiful tops for dinner dates and glamorous events is lacking. It's been a long time since I've wanted to make a great impression on anyone (my wedding, a couple of job interviews). June just marked our four-year anniversary! I want to make a bigger fashion statement in my life on the daily then I have in the past. I'm turning 23 this week and it's a cool marker for me, want to take bigger strides toward my goals now.
I was searching for something untraditional and dynamic, very dressed up. I figured a UK-based store would have more of what I'm looking for since all the fashion bloggers that have any drama in their wardrobes seem to be from there. Riverisland hit it out of the park! Their prices are right on, and so is their quality. I love the attention to detail in this ruffled black shirt. I purchased two other "dressed up" shirts from their collection and they all fit like a glove. The sparkly ring adds some beauty in addition to the puffy sleeves, and I like the little bit of cleavage it allows with a deep v-neck.
I paired this outfit with trendy lace-up sandals and patterned tribal shorts from H&M. Blue, black, and white keep it classy. I added a lovely black bag while matching metals and held the chain in my hand to balance an accessory off with that belt buckle. Keep checking back to see me style the other two tops I purchased!
