Double Take

Top: Many Belles Down, courtesy of High Gloss Fashion // Pants: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Ring: Courtesy of Lucky Magazine // Bracelet: Courtesy of Ann Taylor & Lucky Magazine

As I mentioned in my last post, this new floral top has become an instant favorite. For work last Friday, I paired it with crisp white bell-bottoms that I've had forever but rarely wear. I kept it office-appropriate with a red cami underneath.

Skirt: Forever 21, $5 // Shoes: LuLu*s, $29

For going out that night, I opted to show off the open-back design of the top as well as my new favorite shoes from LuLu*s.

*GASP* I love this shirt. I forgot until right now I had something similar when I was a kid and loved it then too. Must find open backed shirt STAT. Also, your 'do is my current hair-spiration. If I'm lucky (and patient), in 6 months I'll have some longer face framing layers and a sweet side swept bang.

I would never consider that top versatile...but you've changed my mind! I really like it with the camisole underneath for work, and it's certainly a lot of fun for going out. You wear such vibrant, joyful pieces--always an inspiration. :)

I love that outfit both ways, but I really love it with the white pants. And this may sound crazy but the gold bangle just makes the outfit for me!

Such good pairings and that top is fabulous

Meghan said...

that is a beautiful shirt, I love how you styled it both ways! That angry flower graffiti is adorable, too ;)

You're right, that top is totally great. The back of it is awesome. Way to keep it classy with the camisole.

hmm I have had those shoes in my shopping basket for a few weeks now. Are they AT ALL comfortable?? They sure do look awesome.

I love the outfit with the white pants!! You accessorized it perfectly. And after I get done typing this I'm going to go take a look at those shoes in the second outfit. I really want a pair of nude-y modern heels!

@TrophyBoutique -

Hey lady! The shoes are brand new, so I'm definitely still breaking them in. In terms of comfort, they are not bad at all! In my opinion, they run a little bit small. The only pain they've given me is the tightness of the straps on my feet, but I'm hoping they'll loosen a bit with time. Because of the sturdy heel and hefty platform, the height is no problem. Hope that helps!

WHOAH! Love it with those white bell bottoms! So crisp!

maryeb said...

I love the print and the color of that top. It looks great on you.
I'm curious about the sizing as I've never ordered from this company.
What size did you go with and how is the fit?

Kansas Couture said...

@maryeb -

It fits true to size. I went with my usual size of XS, and it fits just right.

I love the top (the back is amazing) and those white trousers are a great cut.

You look awesome, girl! That top looks amazing with your hair color! Work it, work ittt!! Can't wait to see you style this more in the warmer months! It is such a classic statement piece!
