Two Teens And Their Mama: A Pattern Blouse & Shop My Closet Week 12

A Pattern Blouse & Shop My Closet Week 12


Welcome to this week's Style Perspectives!  Today we're linking up with Abbie to share a pattern blouse with neutrals.  Be sure to head to The Blended Blog to see the top two white pants looks from last week, and then link up with us below.

When I look through my closet, I see lots of stripes, some polka dots, plenty of plaid, but not a lot of pattern.  Something to add to my list when I'm done with the shopping ban!  So I went into the deep recesses and found this blouse that I purchased last spring for a style challenge.

It's got a bit of a boho vibe, so I paired it with flare jeans from Loft and some big hoop earrings.  At my house, denim is definitely a neutral!  I love the colors and pattern in this blouse - why was it hiding?



Week 12 of Shop My Closet - and I was a picture failure again.  Maybe I'll have my act together by the end of the year.




Thursday


Every year St. Patrick's Day rolls around and I realize that I don't own anything green.  My military jacket was the best I could do.

Saturday


A sort of sunny day, so time to bring the white keds out of hibernation.  Thanks for the reminder, Sarah!

Monday


Remember my not so fashionable husband?  He told me this scarf looks like I have a tarantula around my neck.  Again, this is why I never listen to him. Although, it kind of looks like a beard.  Whatever... I like it so I'm keeping it.


Wasn't everyone so pretty in their white pants last week?  I can't wait to visit everyone's blog today and check out their patterned blouses.

  2. Thank you for styling flare jeans, I need to see way more pictures before I delve back into that trend. I have forgotten how to wear them! I also wish my legs were as long as yours.

  6. Love that shirt on you friend. And yes jeans are totally a netural. And your St. Patrick's Day outfit, love it! I don't have any green either, I was going to wear my military jacket but then realized, hey I have olive pants!

    1. Oh, I forgot about my olive pants! So I have two green things!

  7. Great shirt! I didn't have a ton of pattern either, just floral and stripes. I used jeans as a neutral as well. Flares look great on you!

  9. I LOVE your colourful top. When you pop up for a visit you'll understand why. It's all the colours of my kitchen. Today it's yet another dreary, wet day and that top would be perfect for cheering me up. Interested in a loan?

    1. I will totally loan my top to you! I'm so tired of the gray days - is spring here yet?

  10. I love the color & pattern on your blouse! It looks great with the flares!

  11. Ha! Your husband cracks me up. He should consider himself an honorary member of the fashion police.

    It is so nice to see you in a bold colourful pattern. It looks great with your hair.

  12. Why didn't I keep all my flare jeans?? They look so great. I love that fun colourful print on you. I feel really drawn to Boho this spring and it may be because it's loose and comfy, but I love that look!

    1. Loose and comfy is definitely key. This is why I can never throw anything away!

  13. I have no green myself! I have no idea why. I do have a bright green jacket from my pre-pregnancy days but it doesn't quite fit anymore.
    I do love blouses with a bit of a Boho vibe.

    1. Boho and green would both look great on you!

  18. I like this whole 'vibe'. Reminds me of the first time flares became popular. You look like a flower child, a child of Mother Earth, and I love that. Those warm colors in your top are really pretty. Hope that outfit makes it into your regular circulation.

  19. Every March 17th I wonder why there is not any green clothing in my closet. And then I forget to shop for anything in that shade. Maybe this will be the year! I noticed with some envy the daffodils blooming in your patterned blouse picture. We had more snow yesterday.

    1. Our crazy daffodils have been blooming for about a month, seemingly oblivious to the cold temperatures!

  20. Hahaha!!! Your husband is wrong, because Monday's outfit is my absolute favorite! I just love the blush and purple together I think!
