Veloria in Velvet

Summertime…and the living is easy

Isn’t this top so chic?  Sometimes there’s nothing better than a classic white blouse with a great print.  I can see it becoming a staple in my normal wardrobe rotation.

When Wallis Fashion asked me to style this top for summer and then transition it to fall, I thought…GENIUS!!  I love the idea of being able to utilize items from my closet year round.  It allows for creativity…but more importantly, your wallet will thank you :).

For my summer look, I paired this top with some distressed boyfriend cutoffs.  Nothing screams summer to me more than a good pair of denim shorts :).  I then added a white blazer and heels to elevate the outfit a bit….you know how I like to layer and can’t resist a good pair of heels!!  I would be so appreciative if you guys would “Like” the Wallis Fashion Facebook page here, and then vote for  my outfit(s)…the winner could win a trip to New York Fashion Week!!  And stay tuned for how I style this look for autumn!!

On another note…what do you think of these shorts?  They are my first DIY project.  Aimee from SwellMayde has an amazing tutorial here…so easy to follow!

  7. I love the print of that blouse! And since you paired it with denim shorts, it makes it more casual. (Although, still wearing the heels of course! 🙂 ) Love love love. Can’t wait to see how you style it for the fall.

  10. This is a great overall outfit! I like the choice in shoes (other than the fact they are awesome on their own!) because it plays up the graphic black and white pattern in the shirt.. xo
