It has been way too long since I wore this blouse (last seen here two years ago). True story, this print is actually the background image on my phone. The first time I wore this blouse in an outfit I toyed with the idea of pairing it with leopard but I hadn’t quite figured out how to go about doing that. Call me crazy, but I feel like pairing this already eye-catching blouse with blue wide-leg trousers is a pretty inspired combo. Since I wanted to include leopard, but not overwhelm the eye with two busy prints, I figured making a primary piece like pants be a bold solid would help to temper things a bit.
Also, I need to talk about this bow barrette. I love over-sized and floppy it is. Now I will admit that if you wear it too high on your head it can look a little cheerleader-y, so styling is a big component to rocking this bow. But I felt up to the challenge so I bought 3 in different colors. I admit, that purchase may have gotten away from me a bit, but #noregrets.
