Inspiration: Jonathan Simkhai and Aqua

 

Trying out a new trend today - the smocked blouse! My version is smocked in the torso with a slight pouf to the sleeve, but this can also apply to smocked sleeves like my inspiration. To dress up this look, I added two statement accessories - a scarf on my bag/hair, and bold earrings. Are smocked blouses a trend youโ€™ve tried yet or are planning to?

Ps. My earrings are old but I gathered some below $10-75. I own that first pair - my all-time faves!

Top: Francescaโ€™s, $26
Jeans: Express, $48
Shoes: DSW, $50
Purse: H&M, $25 ( similar, similar, similar, similar)
Scarf: H&M, $15 (similar, similar, similar)
Earrings: J.Crew, $43 (similar below)
Approx. dates: Earrings are 2 years ago. Bag, jeans and shoes are recent. Top is new.
