This blouse/tunic thing is one of the pieces in my closet that gets worn a lot more than what is shown on the blog. The main reason is, of course, I style it almost the same way every time I wear it – with skinny jeans and flats, and minimal or no accessory at all because the embroidery is busy enough – so there’s not much point in taking photos. This time, I tried to do something different with a ’70s-inspired look. I’m not sure if I succeeded. I think the blouse needs to be shorter and the jeans need to be flares instead of wide-leg for a true ’70s outfit, and the whole thing is way too baggy for my liking.
Do you guys have any suggestions? If not, say goodbye to this blouse because I’ve ran out of way to style it and you’re not likely to see it on the blog much again.

This outfit is incongruous compared to the rest of the week, isn’t it? I’ve made some progress with reintroducing colors into my closet, and with this I seem to have taken a step back. But, in my defense, it was the end of the week, everything in this week’s capsule except for these jeans is in the wash, and I just got these new slip-ons, so I wanted to show them off right away. Besides, if you think this outfit is a step back into my neutral comfort zone, then wait until next week.

Round-up of this week’s outfits:
This outfit is a copy of last week’s “Blue Summer“; I just switched out the top and added a bracelet. I’m still very much in my Begin Again phase, so it’s still boxy tops, loose pants, and flats, but at least this shirt is different from what I have (i.e. it’s not blue, gray, black, or white).
That Begin Again reference actually works on more than one level – I really am beginning again and slowing adding more colors back into my closet, just like when I first started the blog. Back then, though, I used to add whatever color I could find without thinking how it fit into my style. This time I’ll try to be smarter about it.
