Have you noticed how many fashion trends from the 70’s have made their way back in style this fall?
One of those trends is the peasant top.
It can be worn tucked in or out over your pants. With jeans or a skirt. With a jacket or cardigan.
The pleats and stretch-smocked cuffs give this top an added touch of femininity.
Peasant Blouse with Wide Leg Cropped Jeans
Blouse | Jeans | Booties (similar) | Belt | Bag
For this look, I shopped my closet. I paired the peasant blouse (Large – TTS) with the Wide Leg Cropped Jeans (size 18 – size up) I bought at Walmart this summer, cheetah belt, western booties and a Kate Spade Bag.
Did I ever tell you how I got that Kate Spade bag for $29?????
I went to a blogger event at Katy Mills Mall, an outlet mall in the Houston suburbs.
The mall management gave each of us a $100 gift card to spend at the mall. I went into the Kate Spade Outlet Store where they were having a 70% off sale.
This particular bag originally retailed for $399.
$100 gift card + outlet store prices + 70% off = $29 out of pocket for me!
Peasant Blouse with Distressed, Light Wash Jeans
These Style & Co. light wash, straight leg jeans (size 18) from Macy’s are already on heavy rotation.
For this outfit, I wore a brown belt (came in the same 3 pack of belts as the cheetah), white mules and added a backpack purse.
Add a cardigan and colorful shoes
I finished the look with a cute color-block purse from Amazon. Color-blocking is a trend you’ll see a lot of this fall. And this purse (also under $30) comes in many color combinations.
The cardigan also comes in lots of colors. The large fit fine except, how do I say this – my boobs pushed the sides out farther than I liked. So I bought the XL to have a little more “closed” look. And how about that button detail on the sleeves? So cute!
New items purchased for the Fall Capsule
Light Wash Jeans
Pop of color shoes
I am feeling really good about all of these purchases because I’ve worn each of these pieces (except the cardigan because it’s still hovering around 100 here) several times already.
And with the exception of the jeans, these are not items I would have thought to purchase on my own.
The plan for now is to post the outfits I put together from my capsule wardrobe each week. I hope this gives you a little inspiration to put together some new looks from your own closet.
Which look is your favorite?
