Hello everyone! Sorry I have been away from the blog this week. After a wonderful Zoom "Meet and Greet" with readers last Saturday, this week has brought some illness in my family and, frankly, I just haven't felt like blogging. Prayers for "J" appreciated!
My goal today is to share some inspiration with you for styling tops for Fall. The tops I'm sharing are some of my recent thrifting finds from ThredUp and I am so pleased with all of these purchases! This beautiful flowery top with green background by Blair fits like it was made for me. The colors are perfect for Fall but also will work beautifully in Spring and Summer. To be honest, I don't always find Blair's sizing to be consistent but this size Medium fit perfectly as it should!
Everything I'm sharing with you today, except for one top, is by Blair via ThredUp. This is actually a corduroy jacket which I thought would be black with green buttons. Instead, the jacket itself is green but in a shade I like. And how fortuitous that it will match the flowered top with green background perfectly!
So, I am actually wearing two tops here. The undershirt is a sleeveless top by Blair that is in a color I have been looking for in local stores without much success. Why is it so hard to find brown sleeveless tops? I wanted this undertop specifically to wear under brown tops and sweaters that are V-neck and need something underneath. When I saw what I was looking for on ThredUp I jumped for it! The undershirt will also be fine as a stand alone top in the summer. The outer top with jewels down the neckline also caught my eye for Fall. I always love a little bling! This top brand is First Issue-A Liz Claiborne Company. The V-neck with the jewels was very deep and I actually sewed it up a little because I don't like tops so low. However, now that I have the brown undershirt I really don't need the sewing. We'll see if I remove the stitches or not! I think the brown top(s) will also go very well with the green corduroy jacket.
So, with the three tops I've shared plus the corduroy jacket, I could create three different outfits with either tan, brown, black or olive pants. Are you inspired? Sometimes buying just a few key pieces is all you need to create a variety of interesting outfits for Fall and beyond! Go check out your closets and see what you have on hand to mix and match with. And, if you need a few key pieces, do a little thrifting either online or at your local thrift stores!
So, this post will come to most of you on Friday, but also be sure to tune in on Saturday, November 6th, when I am joining in an "Autumn On A Tray" blog hop hosted by Katherine of katherinescorner.com. There will be lots of Autumn goodness to enjoy so be sure to stop on by!
Until Next Time,
