Alright…. confession time – I was looking for a seafoam green anything for a long time (I know, first world problems). I mean, it is such a unique color and of course when you look for something specific, you can never find it when you want it… But voila! This top showed up on Zara and I was sold on it instantly!
Not to mention that that knotted-like texture is so good on here and adds that dimension to it. I also really love the balloon sleeves but really it’s the color and the texture that are my favorite.
And so because this blouse is semi-sheer I had to really think hard about what to wear underneath and I settled on wearing just a bra but in a contrasting orange color. Do you like it? I really do like how this turned out as you can see that orange peeking through for that pop of color (what?? LOL).
Also, not a frequent thing of mine, but I decided to do a bold red lipstick to really make that contrast between the red lips and the green blouse POP! I somehow was very proud about how I managed to apply the lipstick quite well and not look like a 5 year old applied it for me haha 🙂 Because I really am so bad at applying lipstick, but guess what? The secret is in using the lipliner! I know, a no brainer for most, but not for me LOL! Just shows you that I don’t do this very often. But once I bought a matching lipliner, it was a breeze. Who knows, I might just wear lipstick more often? 🙂
You can wear this blouse with a camisole underneath if you’re not into the bra/ blouse combination. I would either do a white bra and a white camisole OR a nude (skin matching color) bra and a camisole also in nude for that seamless look. Whichever color option you would go for, I would make sure that the bra and camisole are in an IDENTICAL color.
I recently attended a blogger event in the city and a fellow blogger showed up wearing this blouse with a patent leather skirt and red boots; so good! She looked amazing and I got a confirmation that getting this blouse was the right choice 🙂 I think it’s actually a great top to wear for any holiday festivities coming up too because it’s chic and elegant and can be styled with a skirt or pants, whatever your preference may be.
