Bows & Chevron

5 Sep

Bow Blouse Chevron Shorts

You may remember these high waisted chevron shorts from this post earlier this summer. Today I decided to pair them with this bow blouse from Forever 21. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but this blouse might be one of my best purchases from Forever 21. I got it my senior year of college, and love that I can wear it year round. Since it was only $20, I’d definitely say I’ve gotten my money’s worth!

It’s hard to see in these pictures, but I picked up this L’Oreal metallic gold nail polish the other day, and I’m really liking it! I think I’ll wear it a lot in the fall, especially with darker clothes. The metallic will be a good contrast to an all-black outfit.

    Just adorable!! I have one or two things from Forever 21 that somehow have lasted me years too! I wish I had snagged that top 😉

      Thanks, Christy! Same here! You’d think their stuff would not last long, but some of those gems last forever!

    Love the outfit!!! I bet the flowyness (not a word I know!) would look cute tucked in the high waist shorts also!

      Thank you, Jesse! Apparently “flowy” isn’t a word either, because every time I type it it’s underlined in red! I use that word so much, so that’s embarrassing. But it would look good tucked in!

    Gold nails? LOVE! And that shirt was a pretty epic forever 21 pick up. It reminds me I need to stop in there more often, just to see if the items I like online are keepers in real life.

      Thank you, Katie! I really like the gold, and might get a silver metallic too! I haven’t been in awhile, but I always find random things that are so nice!

    I loved these shorts last time! I think these lighter chiffon/sheer tops are my fave! So easy to layer under jackets/coats when it gets cool!

    • Baubles to Bubbles September 5, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

      Thank you! Yeah I prefer this look, too. It will be good to wear with a blazer when it gets cooler!

    This is such an adorably unique outfit! I love everything about it!:)

    I love those pieces that have withstood time. For me, they are usually in the form of coats and leather boots.

    This is too cute! I’m in love

    Cute bow blouse! It’s always so nice to find reasonably priced/sale items that end up being favorites!
