Welcome to a new week!
How was your weekend?
We hung out at the house most of the weekend, except for dinner out on Saturday night, but we were back by eight! Okay, we kind of did the “early bird” special. We love to sit at the bar at our favorite places but to get a spot; you have to be there early. Anyway, we came home and watched three more episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale and finished it up last night after having family over for dinner. OH, MY GOSH…the ending is crazy!!!! Today, though, I’m showing this colorfully embroidered top that has been one of my favorite tops of late and a Tropical Giveaway rafflecopter that you can sign up for at the end of this post.
Let’s talk about this Free People embroidered top.
When I saw this top (size small available here and on sale) I knew it was the perfect piece to take to Mexico with me next month. I’ve been trying to get my wardrobe together for this upcoming trip because my son is getting married and I want to make sure I have the right things. Also, I’ve been looking for pieces that have a “Mexican” flair or influence about them. That all to say that I have not saved it for the wedding week and have worn it so many times in the past month.
It is a perfect piece to take though, don’t you think?
Furthermore, I have mentioned a few times that I like to buy things that can be worn more than one season at a time. This top is one of those, that can be worn from spring through early fall. In addition, I found this dress that I showed here to wear to the rehearsal dinner (going to be in the backyard of a large casa). Honestly, I really want my clothes to reflect the culture during the wedding weekend.
So with a top like the one I am wearing, I have found that I have to wear a higher waist jean. I know that I show a lot of designer jeans (because they are usually the only ones that fit me right). But I am on a Madewell jean kick right now. They fit me and are less expensive. Also, my favorite jeans from the brand are the ones that I have on, this pair and I am about to buy these. If you haven’t tried them, they are worth trying on (they come in tall as well).
Jeans are like swimsuits in my opinion
And you have to try several on to find the ones that fit. I don’t want to contradict myself about ripped jeans. You can read this post on how I feel about ripped jeans at the knee. The reason that the pair I am wearing is okay in my world is that the holes are above the knee.
I’m off to a brunch and preview this morning for a beauty brand, that I will be showing on my Instastories. Also, I have a pretty jam-packed day and all I really want to do is clean out my closet! I hope you have a great Monday! xx
