That Feeling When Your Favorite Blouse is Under $100! 

 Styled 3 Ways

I love it when I find a gorgeous, versatile piece… ANNNDD… it’s also affordable! It’s like the cherry on top of the sundae. (Or in my case the whipped cream since I really don’t like cherries.)  When you find something you truly love, you pretty much want to wear it ALL THE TIME (yes, I’m shouting). That is exactly how I feel about my high-neck, lace top by WAYF. I love it SO much I wanted to show you how you can wear it a couple of ways. For casual date night, glam date night, and even a casual look for errands or lunch.

Make sure you check out our full capsule wardrobe for spring/summer here.

1) Casual Date Night

If I could only choose one top in my wardrobe that I had to wear every day, it would be this one by WAYF! (Yes, I know that this hypothetical situation will never happen, but you get the point.) This lace top by WAYF is so feminine, flattering and pretty. And… it’s ONLY $89!! The lace looks VERY luxe for the price. It even comes with a built-in beige camisole so you don’t have to worry about it being see-through (you can snap the cami in and out). The puff sleeve and ruffled neck give it the perfect amount of drama. And the gold-tone buttons at the cuffs are a beautiful detail. This blouse also comes in blue, pink, and black.

For a more casual date night, throw on your favorite pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a pair of cute sandals. These Loeffler Randall sandals are gorgeous! I love the beautiful gold color and low heel. They’re comfortable and the perfect shoe to elevate a casual look or pair with a dress for a special event. I styled these shoes a bunch of ways in this video which also features more favorite spring finds!

2) Glam Date Night

I styled the same WAYF top with these classic and versatile dark wash skinny jeans and a pair of super sexy pumps by Christian Louboutin. Isn’t it amazing how by simply swapping the shoes and styling my hair in a different way, I go from casual to super sexy??? Behold the power of clothes!! These pumps are insanely UNCOMFORTABLE so I do not suggest buying them unless you just want to look at them on your shelf or have a pair of “curb-to-restaurant” heels. I would opt instead for a more functional option like the Jimmy Choo Romy pumps. You can wear this look to date night or out to dinner with friends.

3) Errands to Lunch and Beyond!

I wanted to give you an outfit option for this standout top that is a bit more casual and something you can wear for many different occasions. By pairing the WAYF blouse with a cargo jacket and swapping out my heels for mules, I created a daytime appropriate look.

I LOVE this peplum cargo jacket by Frame but it’s unfortunately sold out. This jacket is a similar option in a different color. But you could also try my favorite denim jacket.

I love the mix of masculinity and femininity with this outfit. (For more tips on mixing styles like a pro, check out this post.) On my feet, I’m wearing some comfy and chic peep-toe mules by Vince Camuto that are also sold out… but good news, I found a similar pair on sale! They’re a great neutral color, and go with everything! I finished off the look with a mini white Gucci bag! I love this one because you can carry it as a crossbody, shoulder bag, or fanny pack!

Which look is your favorite? #1? #2? or #3? Please share in the comments.

  1. Hi Erin, I love the clothes you suggest and your honesty in all that you say. Even admitting you don’t like cherries. Neither do i. Keep up the good work. We’re thinking of moving from CA to TX. So looking forward to more cold weather outfits. Is the lace blouse true to size? I’m a 4 on the bottom but not sure a small would be comfortable. Does it run larger? Thanks.

  2. Hey I just love your content and your website. Your fashion is amazing and inspiration to many people, keep up the good work. Looking forward for more amazing content from your site.
