Soft Surroundings Gauze Peasant Blouse!

March 14, 2017

You don’t actually need to be on a vacation to bring a little vacation style into your life!  Here I am wearing this beautifully embroidered cotton gauze blouse from Soft Surroundings, feeling that resort vibe even though I’m in the city!

Soft Surroundings Review

The blouse is made of 100% cotton with pretty colorful embroidered details that just pop.  I love that my Bauble Bar Piñata Earrings look perfect with it.  Those always add a bit of party vibe to a look!  I’m also wearing my favorite Old Navy cropped kick flares from last summer and they’re finally back in stock for spring. And I have on my Jambu Valentina sandals, so comfortable and cute and ready for nice weather!

I wore this outfit to the very fun Donald J. Pliner spring launch party!  I have another post coming all about the super chic DJP spring line!  In the meantime, here’s one cute shot of the San Francisco Bay Area bloggers who were there.  Don’t we all look happy with our shopping bags?!

    That is a beautiful blouse! 🙂 I’d love more embroidered peices in my wardrobe, I really cherish the few I have but want to get more when my no-shop challenge is over 🙂

    Hope you are having a great start to the week! Looks like you had fun time shopping.

    I love Soft Surroundings tops, and this one is another beauty! After several more inches of snow this week, I am daydreaming about spring vacation ! Thanks for the inspiration.
