Red, White & Embroidered
Happy Friday, loves! I'm officially on weekend mode as I get ready for one of my best friend's weddings tonight! With Labor Day weekend right around the corner, I thought this red, white and blue outfit was perfect to share with you!
I'm slowly jumping back into my denim as the temperatures cool down and the breeze gets a little bit cooler! I'm more than okay with it – I get all giddy thinking about fall – it's my most favorite season. This is the perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall. It's still bright and fresh with summer vibes, but place a leather jacket on and you've crossed over into autumn.
This beautiful embroidered blouse from Peridot Boutique is currently one of my favorites. I can never get enough striped button-up shirts! They've got a professional fit for a work setting, yet casual enough to act as a cover up on beach day over your favorite bikini and a pair of cutoff shorts. This one has some adorable red embroidered flowers scattered about it – you know I can't resist something with florals. It's sold out right now on their website, but don't fear, I hear there is a restock in progress!
I paired this blouse with my favorite J Brand distressed white denim jeans and a pair of light tan mules by dv. These shoes were a Target run must-have at the price of $35; I'll probably wear them a ton this fall until the rain appears. They're really comfortable, not too high of a heel, and I can just slip them on and go.
As I've mentioned multiple times, you can easily elevate any look with a little bling! I have a lot of statement necklaces that are just gold-tone with crystals so I can wear them with just about anything. Button up the entire blouse and place it over for a more professional look, or keep it unbuttoned and wear underneath for some added sexiness.
I always try to match my bouquets to my outfit – it's a fun thing for me to go to the market and custom make a bouquet that fits my mood and color palette! It's dahlia season, and I love the impact these large succulent flowers make to an arrangement. It's my dream to have a beautiful little patch of dahlias in a garden someday.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and embrace the last few days of August, can you believe that September is right around the corner?! I've got so much to share with you in the coming months here on Pike Petals, stay tuned!
