Dressed Up and Down


Finally wearing my new H&M top before it starts getting warm again.  Do you ever have epiphany moments when planning outfits?  Like you're sitting there brushing your teeth and all of a sudden you're like, "Oh snap!  That will totally work!"  Well that's how this outfit came about.  I decided to dress down my top with the boyfriend jeans, but then dress it back up with the heels and more dramatic make up.  I liked how it turned out.

What do you think?








Blouse: H&M // Jeans: American Eagle // Heels: Payless // Clutch: DIY

Oooh, I definitely like this outfit too!
You strike the perfect balance between casual and stylish <3 Your jeans paired with everything else looks great. Sometimes I have trouble with keeping my outfits simple. Haha, I know, its ridiculous, but I have too much fun adding prints or accessories and it can be a bit much sometimes. So maybe you can try mixing prints this summer, I'll try mixing more neutrals ;)
