The weather is weird in Massachusetts. One day it’s FREEZING outside and the next its spring. JUST PICK ONE! Though I do feel shocked and frustrated when it gets so cold and as much as I love wearing turtlenecks to keep warm, I’m also trying to have an aesthetic wardrobe. NOT THAT TURTLENECKS AREN’T AESTHETIC — just bear with me I’m trying to make a point about the blouse I’m featuring in this post. This look is not thrifted, but I’ve had each item in my closet for a very long time and decided to put them together.
I fell in love with this Victorian lace top when I found it online. The high neckline is gorgeous and unique. After receiving it in the mail, I tried to put some outfits together to wear out and felt very self-conscious. Why? Well, it’s a style that I haven’t worn, I didn’t know if it was dated, and quite honestly I was in my own head about how I looked. So, I buried it in my closet until I felt the time was right (lol).
I paired the top with this floral printed velvet cardigan, a black skirt, boots, and tights. It was really easy to put this outfit together once I got out of my head. I think it’s a cute fall look, perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. The hues in the cardigan really tie in the whole warm November feel even though it gets kinda frosty outside — on some days.
So, how can you pull off this top? First I’d say, don’t be afraid of looking dated. This is number one! My advice is to keep it simple and play up the feminity. I feel like anything Victorian screams FEMININE and you can dress it up or down.
An example of how else I would wear this top is I’d pair it with wearing some light high waisted denim and some white chelsea boots. I feel like that would look really cool for this time of year too.
Anyway, the holiday season is upon us! What does that mean? 2035847556 Google searches for Black Friday deals. If you want to recreate this look I’ve added the links to some similar items below and I’m sure the sites I’m featuring will have some fantastic sales — ASOS usually does!
I hope you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
