Style That Item: Kerry's KS blouse


Can I just commend Miss K for being able to pull off this Kate Spade print so well?  That girl has some mad taste and always looks amazing!  She was requesting some help for ways to get some good use out of this blouse after wearing it to her husband's MBA graduation.  First up, a trend that's back: the peplum look.  I kept it casual by pairing a frilly top with some dark rinse skinny jeans.  The light turquoise studs will be a lovely shock of color peeping from behind Kerry's dark and gorgeous locks.

Another casual look that Kerry can use in the spring or summer is to pair the blouse with some high-waisted shorts from Kendi's shop Bloom.  Tuck in the blouse, toss on a jean jacket or chambray shirt, and pile on the colorful accessories!  I'm pretty certain Kerry's not much of a fringe person, but I thought the boots added an extra juxtaposing detail that's not so expected.

A few months ago, Kerry entertained me to the depths of my soul with the telling of her tale, "The Hunt for Red October".  Let's bring that precious cargo out of the closet and use that baby!  Here's the KS blouse with her red blazer or a neutral twill jacket.

Lastly, February is coming up and I thought this Bloom sweater would be oh so whimsical!   It does cover up  most of the print, but how fun would it be to see some of it peeking out?  The black collar would give the sweater a vintage Peter Pan collar-esque look.

 I love seeing Kerry in her hats because I cannot pull off a hat AT ALL, so I threw in this mustard slouch hat for some warmth and color.  The pants are a bit much, but K's a print expert so she'll find a way to mix two prints together!  I'm also digging the red laces on these booties!

So fun, Isabel!

Pep it Up! & Red Octobering are my faves!! I agree with Amy on the blouse with the boyfriend jeans. Definitely an effortless vibe going on. I want that fun orange Halogen bag in the first set - such an incredible price! Great find!

And yes! I'm into those fringed booties! I actually just bought some the other day! Stay tuned... they'll be on the blog soon!

Thanks for the ideas! xoxo

Red Octobering would be my favorite pick of the looks. Love the blazer and jacket you picked to pair with the shirt! :)
