When I was debating whether or not I should purchase this blouse, I was trying to rationalize my decision and figure out how to style it differently. I don't know about you, but lately I've been trying to think about my purchases carefully so that I have multiple ways of wearing it. This way, I can get more use out of the item which in turn gives me a lot more bang for my buck!
When visiting Courtney Boutique, I was bouncing off some ideas from both Stephanie and Emilie, the assistant manager and store manager, and an idea came up to wear the top unbuttoned, like a vest. The thought was so simple, yet I did not think to style it this way on my own and owe 100% of this outfit inspiration to those girls!
That's one of the many things I love about visiting this local boutique, the girls are so helpful and are willing to provide honest feedback while you shop and try on potential purchases. Especially on days where I may not have a girlfriend with me, I like having someone I can trust when I ask for an opinion.
Not only can I wear this top like a vest, I can also button it up and style it with leggings or faux leather pants and have a completely different look!
Today, I chose to style it with some cutoff shorts, a basic high-neck white tank, some cut-out booties and my current favourite sunglasses (only $11!).
Do you have any other ideas of how you may style at top like this?
