Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. My youngest son had Monday off from school so it was a nice long, four day weekend. We had a beautiful Easter Sunday with church followed by a family brunch at my home. Then of course, we were glued to the T.V. for Game of Thrones. Who else is watching?
Today I’m sharing two fabulous animal print tops that can be worn casually or styled very work friendly. They are both only $68. Plus, let’s talk about the trending jean cut for spring.
ANIMAL PRINT TOPS
I’m always on the hunt for beautiful tops and in my opinion, you do not have to spend a lot of money to get some wow pieces. When I found these chic animal print tops by Topshop from Nordstrom, I bought them both because they are unique and different and they would each provide a ton of versatility in my closet. Giraffe or Zebra? Or for $68, why not both?
These tops can be styled very casually with jeans but can also be dressed up with skirts and pants for work events or cocktail parties. If you work in an office and are heading out to dinner or drinks afterwards, these tops are the perfect answer because they would look perfectly polished in the office but ultra chic for post work cocktails.
TRENDING JEAN FOR SPRING
High rise, straight legged cropped jeans are very popular right now and I love everything about this cut of jean. High rise jeans are flattering because they elongate your legs and slim your body. Look for a rise between 9-11″. A straight leg cropped jean should hit just above the ankle bone which is the slimmest part on most every woman’s leg. Showing your ankle is not only flattering to your whole look, but it can be very sexy with a heel or even a sneaker.
Bold spots put a fun spin on this giraffe blouse. I love this blouse paired with black or white jeans and it would also look great for work worn with black slacks or a pencil skirt. Do you have any cocktail parties this spring? If so, wear this giraffe print blouse with some white, cream or black palazzo pants for a stunning and dramatic look.
For size reference I am wearing a US 6 (Topshop sizing 2-4).
I’m wearing my black Frame high waisted straight leg cropped jeans which I just purchased. Ladies, I am absolutely loving the fit of this jean and I haven’t put on one thing that I don’t love with these. This cut is so perfect with heels, wedges and sneakers. I might be a repeat offender in these all year long!
My Alexander Wang sandals were a splurge last summer in black patent and they sold out quickly with the rose gold notched accent on the heel. They are back in a gorgeous new shiny black version with a silver notch. Compliments fly every time I have these on because the heel is so interesting. If you need a new black sandal, I highly recommend these. Schutz also makes a gorgeous black patent wedge.
I get questions often about my lip shade. In the pics above I’m wearing Mac Soar Lip Liner, Chartlotte Tilbury Secret Salma (the prettiest berry shade) and a touch of the best lip gloss, Dior #785 Diorama.
This zebra top immediately caught my eye because of it’s unexpected hues of olive green and cream stripes. It adds new life to some of my basic cream pieces in my closet. I’ve had a few olive green jackets and pants that this also blends beautifully with. Don’t you just love when you find something that works back to items you already own?
While I love this blouse with a beautiful pair of cream pants or a skirt, wearing it casually with these Frame high rise cropped jeans makes me happy. The rise on these jeans is almost 11″ so they are super slimming and the raw edge hem gives them an edgy vibe.
