If I were to describe my style, “girly” is not a word that I would use. Feminine, yes, but not girly. There’s a difference. Girly makes me think of lots of lace, scalloped edges, florals, and, of course, pink. I love all of those things – but in small doses, and never all together. This blouse is a perfect example. The eyelet material screams girly, but the silhouette – button-down with a slight peplum detail – gives it a little more structure. And when I pair it with my blue jeans, it gives it a more casual look for the day. (I love it with my white jeans, too.) To give it some pop, I’ve also paired it with these super bright Mara Hoffman shorts. I love how you can see the colors peeking through the eyelet. For a nighttime look, I’m planning to wear it with a leather jacket. It’s a fun juxtaposition and definitely dials down the sweetness. The same goes for this Isabel Marant top. Nobody makes eyelet look cooler than Ms. Marant.
