Scalloped blouse

My preppy loving heart was unable to resist this scallop trimmed blouse at Banana Republic. Add to the fact that it's made of silk and comes in petite, so the sleeves don't need to be cuffed and can show off every scalloped detail.

Feeling bored of my boots (already) I decided to try out Kacie's trick of layering nude tights under my jeans so I could slip on a pair of pumps without going barefoot, and they offer protection from distressed denim chills as well.

  1. If there was a blouse that could sum up your style, this would be it. The scallop detail, the black and white silk - everything about it is so perfectly you. And as for nude tights under jeans, what a brilliant idea! After thinking I had torn my nude tights and buying a new pair, I actually found my pair from last year (of course...) so now I have more than I need and I think I can definitely use one for under jeans. I tried to wear pumps yesterday with bare feet and my goodness, that was a serious mistake! It took me hours to warm up.

  2. You do find the most beautiful scalloped items! I love the feminine feel it lends to the whole outfit!

  3. This is quite lovely....and I wear hosiery under my jeans all the time. Although I do want to try the cut out socks....jodie

  4. That's definitely a smart idea with the tights! I've done it with colored tights/black ones but never thought to do it with nude ones...haha.

  5. Love the blouse! I wish I had realized it was made out of silk! I would have totally gotten one too! I love it with the leopard heels.

  8. I love the fun scallop details on that pretty blouse! I need to try that with nude tights... usually I just wear no socks and my feet just freeze (or give in to the boots). But the nude tights idea is genius!

  9. Your look is so feminine and elegant and classic! Love it!

    Hugs! Love, Mary

  10. What a great trick. You can't even tell. That was my issue with styling my jeans Sunday night. It was one of those rare nights in Georgia where the temp was below 32 and while I did wear my boots, they weren't what I wanted at all.

  11. Your scalloped blouse is so pretty, love it!

  12. Such a gorgeous top! I love the scalloped detailing!


  13. Love this blouse, this entire look is perfect!!

  14. This top is so pretty and feminine! I love it paired with distressed jeans!

  15. Love this look Lydia and how brave are you posing without your coat!

  16. I could not tell you were wearing tights. I guess it's a neat trick.
    Oh and whenever I see scalloped I think of you;) so I can only guess when you saw this shirt, you had to have it.

  17. If there's one stellar point of your outfit, it's that adorable bag. So whimsical and charming!!

  18. I saw this top in another color and loved it! The scallops are so great. Good tip about adding a nude hose under your heels.

  20. Love your outfit! So pretty!
