A hot trend this season is the boho look…easy, breezy, comfortable and casual. I didn’t think this would really be a look I would embrace but then I tried on this blouse. I just loved how comfortable it was and the way it draped. I immediately started running through outfit opportunities in my head. Generally I do that when I’m thinking of buying something, especially a trend piece. I want to make sure in my head I have a few options so I get use out of it.

Today I’m pairing it with a pair of torn jeans because it’s still cold to me! But, as we get into summer this is going to be perfect with either a pair of cut-off shorts or a simple mini skirt. Boots, booties or cool sandals will all work. These boots are perfect! I love their look and even though they have a heel, it’s not too high and it’s thick so they are really comfortable. The gold tips really sold me on them though–love something unexpected like that on a shoe. For my jewelry, I layered a brass bangle I’ve had for years with a leather and metal cuff I got form a dear friend for my birthday this year. The earrings are cascading gold bars.

As you know, after shoes, I’m all about the bag. This fringe black leather bag is beautiful. And, it finishes off this outfit perfectly. It can be used as a crossbody during the day and then tuck the strap in for a clutch by night.
