I’m pretty sure this top was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July, but it wasn’t until it landed in the regular sale section that it caught my eye. I have been spending so much time looking for affordable loose blouses that I can wear with jeans this fall, and happily this one fit the bill. I love the little details from the bell sleeves to the ruffles to the seaming at the waist — all of which make the blouse feel more special than its inexpensive price tag.
This time of year is my style sweet spot. There are few things I love more than being able to wear a lightweight sweater with a mini skirt or a pair of shorts, and this sweater that Garnet Hill sent over is just perfect for the transitional weather. It’s a breathable linen-cotton blend that offers just enough warmth for breezy days without being too warm when the weather heats up in the afternoon. Labor Day in Madison was on the chilly side, which made this the perfect ensemble for running errands and meandering around our new neighborhood. (I picked up this amazing brass ram on our outing. Anthro has a similar one.) The sweater runs a big large, so size down if you want a more fitted look.
