Bejeweled Oxford



 J.Crew Collection Beaded Shirt | J.Crew Skirt - similar here and here | Ellen Tracy Pumps - similar save or splurge | Michael Kors Watch


Hey everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Today's outfit is a look from this past weekend, and if you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen this top and probably also noticed a trend of my latest obsession with beaded/embellished tops. I got this one pretty recently and was super excited to wear it, so I came up with this pairing. Just a small sidetrack - if you all are familiar with the collection line, you'll also know that this top comes in a light blue oxford which I think is also beautiful and maybe a little easier to dress down. I really wanted to focus the attention on the top, and I tried a couple combinations before finally settling with the mint green skirt. It's definitely a top that pops more with a light colored bottom and a simple silhouette so nothing distracts from the beautiful bead work. This also led me to my choice of a nude shoe so the eye immediately goes to my shirt instead of my shoes! What're your latest obsession for this season? Let me know in the comments below :) Thanks for reading!!

XOXO,

  2. Thanks Tiffany!!

    Totally loving the stripe trend as well. In terms of cotton-y tops, like t-shirts and casual quarter sleeve tops, I know J.Crew has a ton of striped options. Dresses and skirts are a bit more difficult. I know I'm also looking for the perfect striped skirt - maybe Ann Taylor, Loft, or Banana Republic?

  3. Such a refreshing color! Love the skirt and bejeweled top! I've seen this top, and it's caught my eyes quite a few times, but I passed since I didn't think I'd get much wear and cleaning it I would have to handle with extra care. Seeing it on makes me want to add it to my closet lol

  4. Thanks Christine! I actually haven't quite figured out how to clean this without damaging the beading...lol. I'm even afraid to bring it to the dry cleaners because I'm afraid they'll ruin it! I don't think I would've picked this up in stores since it's a bit pricey, but I scored it for a pretty good deal at the J.Crew sample sale a couple weeks ago in the city!
