Modern Classic Style

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

After days of being sick, I am finally joining the land of the living again (hence, the lack of blogging this week!). 

Anyway, there are SO MANY Labor Day sales going on right now. The one I'll be talking about is at
LOFT- 30% off select new fall arrivals and an extra 50% off summer sale styles! 

In today's post, I'm wearing the LOFT utility blouse. This lightweight blouse is perfect for fall and comes in many colors and patterns (some currently on sale, some not)! I love the roll tab sleeves that put a modern flare on a classic button down shirt. The color of this utility blouse is misty sage (love this color for fall). I've seen it recently in stores in all sizes and it is available online in petite sizes. I have found that I can fit petite sizes in LOFT if I size up. For example, if I fit a regular small, I would get a petite medium. ALSO, it's part of the 50% off sale, bringing it down to $22.50! Woohoo! Head to LOFT this weekend to grab this blouse and other great sales!

I styled this shirt with my leopard heels, gold jewelry and a black crossbody bag. I chose casual skinny jeans for this look, but I would pair it with dress pants for a more professional or dressed up outfit (work, church, etc.). 

You can also style this shirt in a more casual way by keeping it untucked and paired with ankle booties. These brown Vince Camuto boots are from last season and will continue to get plenty of wear this fall and winter! Here is a similar pair on sale at Macy's (in cognac).

Let's not forget to talk about this adorable (and affordable!!!) black crossbody bag from Nordstrom (free shipping!). If you are in the market for a small bag this fall, I definitely recommend this one. I love the gold detailing and it's a nice size for all the essentials! PLUS, it comes in a cognac color, too! 

One last thing... when linking my Fossil watch, I discovered that it is 40% off right now on Amazon! If you are looking for a good quality two-tone watch, check this one out. It's gold, silver, and some bling all in one.

Thanks for reading and have a great Labor Day!

  1. I LOVE this. The way you turned up your jeans is perfect. And you know I love me some leopard flats. :-)

    1. Thanks, Jo-Lynne! And yes, we both love some leopard shoes right now! LOL

  2. I love the necklace with that shirt, great outfit!

  3. So cute and simple and I love it all! Come linkup at Whatcha Wearing Wednesday!

  4. Love the utility blouse! Because I'm short, I'm always looking for blouses made from soft material. Even though this is a solid color, it's got additional details to make it interesting.
