Wild One

For as much as I wish I had a wardrobe full of streamlined and simple pieces, all able to work together to create effortless outfits, the pieces I'm most drawn to are wild with color and print. Even though I feel like I've tamed things down over the years, always with the desire of 'effortless' looks, sometimes I find a print I simply cannot ignore.

Such was this jungle print blouse from J.Crew. With the design inspired by a vintage scarf, this mixture of three prints in shades of green, pink, and gold, was not meant to blend in. At least I know I'm not alone in my wild ways, as this blouse has nearly sold out. There are a few sizes left, which can be snapped up for $60 with the promo code 'family' right now.

  1. I'm all for this jungle print top! And especially love your velvet pants. The color is perfect and it would look great with a holiday outfit!


  2. I'm the same way, I do have a lot of basic pieces but I can never resist a wild print (or multiple printed) items! Such a great top!!!

  3. I am totally feeling that scarf print! Makes for such a pretty blouse!

  4. Prints always look so great on you and it's not at all surprising that you'd gravitate to them - this one is a particularly gorgeous piece!

  5. this is SUCH a gorgeous top on you, girl!!! xx

  6. What a cute fall look! I love how you mixed the prints! So fun and stylish!


  7. That is a beautiful blouse, I can see hwy it nearly sold out! Such a luxe print and it looks good with your velvet pants! I tend to gravitate towards prints too, I'm making more of an effort to pick basic block colours to add to my wardrobe recently! Can't beat a good print though!

    Hope that your week is going well :) It's a very hot one here! More like summer than spring!

  8. It's such a stunning blouse! I can see why you love it and why it's almost sold out! I love the vintage feeling of the print!

  9. This is such a gorg outfit on you! I love the colors in it xoxo sarah

  10. Oh this outfit is super cute! I love the colors and I love the bag too!

  11. There was a time when my approach to shopping was so similar to yours. And it gives me endless admiration for how you style all of your very unique and bold pieces, because my biggest frustration back then was actually putting outfits together. I had so many amazing pieces, but nothing seemed to coordinate. Clearly, I was meant to have a very simple, fuss- (and colour-free) wardrobe, while you were meant for something else entirely. I doubt I could ever pull off near head-to-toe green, but on you, it's fabulous.

  12. I can totally sympathize with your need for color and print. That's how I've felt for literal years. It wasn't until the end of this summer that I realized I was beginning to be drawn to more neutrals and pieces that mix and match easily. It takes time though. And I still have tons of wild pieces!

  13. Oh my goodness how fun is this top! Perfect colorful/printed top for fall. And pairing it this the Clare V. clutch was genius!

  15. That is a great top! Love the print and design and how it was on scarf. It looks great on you too. Oh boy I have the opposite problem and last year I went on a no black ban lol.
