Orange Crush by Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

I have an orange crush on this long sleeved blouse that I rented from Nuuly. This top was worn on Easter since wearing a dress at home didn’t feel right. Loving how it pops against the dark flared jeans.

My Orange Crush – Nora Surplice Blouse

When I saw this blouse on the Nuuly site, I thought it was red so I decided to add it to my box. What a surprise when I received it because it is orange and nowhere near red. At first I was a little disappointed but when I saw the beautiful contrast of it with the jeans, I had a change of heart.

This blouse is very flowy and voluminous so I made sure to pair it with my fitted flared jeans. The detail that makes this top work is the wrap detail at the waist. It looks like the blouse is pulled to your body so you don’t look like you are wearing a tent. I also love the flattering V neckline.

Pair this top with white skinny jeans too. That would be a wonderful day look for sure. I’m glad I accidentally ventured out of my comfort zone with this color. What are some colors that make you nervous?

Shelter in Place Update

We just found out a couple of days ago that school is out (in person) for the rest of year. I am sad that both of my boys are going to miss out on special celebrations and milestones. (One son is a senior and one is an 8th grader.) I know it’s all for the best but it really bums me out. They seem to be handling it okay. Hopefully the schools will find some way to celebrate their accomplishments. Are you facing similar things where you are with your kids?

Have a wonderful week! XO
