{lookbook} wild horses









I'm back at the barn! At least this time my outfit is a bit more fitting...horses and all.
I know I'm a little late to the game, but I've been coveting the Marc Jacobs Pantera Blouse forever. Coveting.
I wasn't so interested in the price tag though, especially since I couldn't even imagine ever wearing it. 
But, I was shopping online a few months ago and thrilled to find this lovely little blouse* at F21.
It's been sitting in my closet because it's so out of the norm of what I usually wear.  But I love it so I finally decided to give it a try! And are you kidding me with those rose gold BCBG shoes?!  I just recently got them and the weather was beautiful this weekend, so it was perfect timing to bust them out.

how was your weekend?
there's lots of fun in store tomorrow!
 something totally new! 

until tomorrow,
xx

*This isn't actually a blouse, it's an open front/flyaway cardigan.
I just wrapped it and tied it with a makeshift belt/bow. Done and done.

And, I almost forgot! The winner of the Sweet Musings Paperie giveaway is Roxy from A Spot of Tea!
Random.org picked her # 39
Congrats lady, please email me with your info so I can pass it along!

Genius to tie your cardigan top closed and make it a blouse, it looks fabulous and I want one now. I love F21, a lot of careful searching but you can find gems in there!

You look great!

Hi ! So great to meet you through Monday Mingle!

I love those shoes! Rose gold is really in right now. I have seen lots of rose gold watches and jewelry, but never any shoes.

I like your entire outfit!

Roxy said...

Oh my gosh so excited!! Thank you and those shoes!!! I need them now!!! :)

Dale said...

How clever you created your own belt, i love this top and I think it's really cool how you cuffed your jeans and then added the BCBG metallic heels, they look perfect with the whole look. Wish we were getting some weather that lucky here in SF right now hehe. Great blog and you look really pretty in these photos!

Following you now

I absolutely love the cardigan (thought it was a blouse)! You did such a great job styling it and rose gold shoes?? I mean c'mon, they're beautiful.

Jackie {York Avenue} said...

I really love the blouse and how you wore it! It's a fun pattern but still sophisticated and chic.

Marionberry Style said...

Are you kidding me?! You look insanely beautiful! LOVE the horse-y print. And I know exactly which Marc Jacobs blouse you are referring to...as I am a tiny bit obsessed with the man (just ask my hubby!)

Great look Mae! :-)
XO - Marion

PS - hmmm, curious about tomorrow's news. Can't wait to hear what is in store! :-)
