Ribbed.

IMG_2Topshop Sweatshirt, Topshop Black Jeans, Asos Chelsea Boots.

One of my favorite things about fall clothing is the texture. Recently I have loved the look of ribbed pieces. It is still texture, but it gives the usual cable-knit a break. I found this sweater while I was in Chicago, and I have already gotten so much wear out of it. I paired it with my staple black jeans that seem to go with every outfit. On my feet I wore my absolute favorite black chelsea boots. This outfit is definitely very simple, but it is one of my go-to’s for this season.

A New Addition.

IMG_41692Topshop Jacket.

While I was in Chicago this weekend, I was on a hunt for the perfect jacket. It’s that time of year around here that I definitely need a jacket, but I’m not ready to bring out a huge winter coat. I saw this one in Topshop, and I fell in love with it. It’s thick enough to keep me warm, but thin enough to add lots of layers underneath. I absolutely love the color and the fit is perfect. If you are looking for the perfect jacket this fall, definitely check out this one.

Getting Cozy.

IMG_4031Thrifted Knit Sweater, Asos Jeans, Steve Madden Booties.

   It’s finally that time of year where I love the outfits I wear, but I struggle to create blog posts about them as it is about 40 degrees outside. This outfit is one of my favorites. My closet is stockpiled with cable-knit sweaters similar to this one, as they are an  necessity. I styled it with one of my absolute favorite jeans. These are my first pair of Asos jeans, and I adore them. I’ve never been an “I’m going to pay an extra $30 to buy jeans with holes in them” kind of girl, but I love the look of torn knees recently. Finally, if you’ve been on my Instagram recently, I’m sure you will have seen these amazing black booties. They are perfect.

   I also wanted to add very quickly that I am doing a senior project as a graduation requirement at my high school. We get to pick any topic, and I chose to do mine on social media’s influence on trends and, specifically, personal style blogging. It’s a pretty big deal to me that I am doing this, as I have yet to inform any of my peers of this little online existence. I just wanted to let you know that I need your help. One of my visuals is a video of bloggers saying what makes them a trendsetter. I have received several of these about 30 second videos and am still looking for more. If you are looking to spread your blog to the student body of a little, rural high school, send a video to lindsey@blousesandblush.com. Thank you!

On My Wish List.

Wishlist

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

On my recent online store browses, I have found a few pieces that I thought I might as well share with you. I saw the “so much internet to do” sweater on The Reformation’s Instagram and I absolutely fell in love with it. Another piece that I have been eyeing recently has been any cigarette-style trousers. This is just a basic pair, but I am still on the hunt for the perfect pair of pinstriped trousers. I also stumbled across this grid print dress on Topshop’s website and it immediately caught my attention because, well, anything monochrome belongs in my closet. And some other basics that I found to be quite nice were these black patent loafers and a vintage-style denim jacket. What pieces have you put on your wish list recently?
