Friday Flashback!

Volume 2: White Jeans + Blouse

Happy day, reader dear!

Welcome to the second in the Friday Flashback series I’m running this summer, wherein I look back at an outfit I wore the same week last year, (probably a little) more objectively than I could then, and restyle it for this year. This outfit turned out to be one of my favorites from last summer, and even for all of 2018. It felt happy, fresh, light, feminine, and easy. That’s pretty darned near perfect in my book! What adjectives would describe your perfect summer look? (Not that I actually believe in perfect, mind you… There is no perfect this side of eternity.)

This week last year…

Happy Blogiversary to me!

What’s still in my wardrobe?

Everything! Here’s a few different ways I’ve styled these pieces recently:

It may be hard to tell, but those are the pink sandals with the shorts outfit…

How would I style it today?

Not much differently! I’d be perfectly happy to wear it just as it is, but if I were to tweak it a bit, I’d probably go with something like this…

No balloons… Sigh.

I’ll keep the same jeans and blouse, but want to go with the soft, simple, drama vibe that is my Style Touchstone again this summer. The silver shoes are definitely drama; the huge hoops help balance them. The colors are soft, and there’s no added fluff to this outfit: so simple. I could have grabbed my big pink tote, but wanted the pop of blue in the crossbody bag. I couldn’t quite figure out why that felt more familiar, until I noticed the blue balloon! Ahhhhh…

What do you see when you look at last year’s pictures? Are you growing and changing in your style? Are you happier with what you see now? Or then? Do tell in the comments below!

Stylishly yours,
