I’m currently visiting my family in Seattle and packed horribly. This was a super last minute trip because my grandpa passed away, so I literally purchased my plane ticket 2 days in advance. When we travel I typically like to plan what we are doing and therefore what I’ll wear in advance. However I had no idea what our plans were other than the funeral. It was going to be rainy and 55 degrees most of the time, so I brought a couple pairs of jeans, a sweatshirt, T-shirt, blouse, jacket and black dress. Well it turns out that this striped lace-up blouse was perfect for almost every occasion. The T-shirts and sweatshirt were way too casual for what we ended up doing.
On Friday I met up with my best friend and her husband for dinner. We went to an Italian restaurant in their neighborhood, so I wanted to dress up slightly. I tucked this top into high-waisted jeans, added a suede moto jacket and ta da! Effortless, casual-chic outfit. I also wore it to visit my grandparents at their house and to go shopping with my family at the mall. Being back in the land of Nordstrom was amazing! In Seattle there are about 5 Nordstroms within a 60-minute radius, so moving to Florida where our closest one is 5 hours away is brutal. Thank goodness for online shopping! Keep scrolling to find all outfit details under the “Shop This Post” section and you can also see how I styled this top with shorts in this post.
