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?



A Walk by the River.

So, I’m still alive. It’s been a long two weeks since my last post, so I’m going to get my apologies out of the way now. I started my senior year of high school the day I posted my last post and I’ve basically been adjusting to the work load for the past two weeks. I’m really excited to get back into the swing of things and I have a lot of content I can’t wait to put up. Anyways, I decided to take a trip to the river today and happened to bring my camera along with me. I’m wearing one of my wardrobe favorites, a grey t-shirt dress, as well as my well-loved white Converse.

Black, White, and Overalls.

IMG_3943 Topshop Denim Overalls, Topshop White Blouse, Topshop Sandals, Asos Clutch.

I picked up these overalls in New York City and I can’t even begin to explain how obsessed I am with them. I paired them some black and white pieces because, let’s be honest, that is all there is in my closet. To maintain a simplistic ensemble, I wore an off-white blouse, one of my wardrobe essentials. I also wore a pair of black sandals and a black clutch to add some contrast. I finished the look with some neutral makeup and a messy ponytail.
