Wrap It Up With a Bow

 

 

A little bit boho.  A little twist on the chambray shirt.  A little bow on the side.  What more could a girl want in a blouse?  I've had this in my closet for close to two months and I can't believe I haven't shared it on here until now.  Like the kimono I styled a few weeks ago, a wrap shirt was on my spring/summer wish list (see here).  I actually stumbled upon it when I was frantically searching for a straw bag that I could order online within Canada and I found it at Zara, along with this top.  The great thing about Zara now is that you can order and ship back for free.  I instantly knew I wanted this top and ordered it in both small and medium because I often find their sizing varies. For reference I keep the medium, mostly for the length. 

 

This blouse has too many cute details.  The obvious ones being that it's a wrap shirt, the side tie-up can be done in multiple ways but I prefer a big bow.  The sleeves have a bit of the balloon shape to them, the tassel tie-ups on the sleeves add to the boho, care-free style that I love for this time of year, and also the delicate embroidery ion the sleeves.  For $50 this shirt really had it all for me.  I can wear it casually out and about, or to work.  I can't wait to pair it with some denim and white shorts in the summer as I run errands around the city, or head to the farmers market. 

 

 

 

I recently wore this when we went out to watch the Cirque Du Solei show Crystal.  It was nothing short of phenomenal.  The talent, ability, strength, story, characters, were all incredible.  I was so glad we were able to share the experience with our girls as well.  They left inspired and in awe of the performance, and of course a huge appreciation for the arts and the performers. 



What are your wish list items going into summer?

  2. Such a cute top! I think a wrap top compliments so many body shapes and is really a classic piece. I love the puffier sleeves and that it's a chambray color. It can really go with so many different types of pants!

    1. Right? Chambray is so easy to style with different bottoms but I was so tired on my one chambray shirt that I purchased probably like 3 years ago now. At least I got lots of wear out of it. :)

    1. Thanks girl. Yes, that's a great way to describe it "drama & romance" makes me think of Shakespearean times.
