Some of you will likely doubt the advisability of wearing denim on a smokin’ hot summer day. But if it’s an adorable button-front denim bustier…I certainly don’t mind if I do!! 😉
I was ridiculously excited to finally have the chance to debut this strapless little number (another fab find from Forever 21!) after it had been languishing unworn in my closet for a solid two months post-purchase. Strapless is pointless – at least in my humble opinion – if you can’t show it off in all its bare-shouldered glory; but only in the last couple of weeks has our Vancouver weather been cooperative when comes to wearing an outfit with nary a layer required for warmth.
On the other hand, I’m not going to say I’d never wear it layered!! More and more, it’s a piece’s potential versatility that plays the biggest role (right after that initial “oh-my-gosh-I-love it!”) in my decision to bring something home when I’ve been on one of my shopping jaunts. I can totally see this bustier together with my pearl-embellished jean jacket for a “double denim” look. Or how about layered over a snug tee…or even a turtleneck?? (Not that I’m currently giving autumn-appropriate outfits any kind of serious consideration; puh-lease!!)
So for now can we just focus on how well that corset-inspired silhouette and denim fabric work with my seriously summery wrap skirt?? I’m all about the contrast of a structured top against the softness of those cute floral-patterned ruffles; plus light blue and sunny yellow are a match made in complementary colour heaven, don’t you think?? You might recall seeing the skirt here once before not all at long ago…but I’m confident I managed to give it an entirely different spin with today’s cute combination!!
I’m keeping my fingers tightly crossed that our current heat wave sticks around for a while longer, dear readers; after all, it’s exactly this kind of outfit that a “sun bunny’s” sartorial dreams are made of!! 😎
