Raiding My Sister's Closet: Trying out the Embroidery Trend

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

I tend to avoid super trendy clothes, because they seem so fleeting.  They show up for summer, and by fall they are old news, and something new has taken their place.  Not great for someone who buys clothes pretty infrequently, and tries to get them to last as long as possible (which is why my closet is filled with black and white stripes and white button downs).  

I almost always love trendy clothes, because attractive people with amazing hair and gorgeous smiles wear them and show up all over instagram and the blogging world, making the latest trend look fabulous, so who wouldn't think they looked great?  

Despite trying to avoid them, occasionally, I fall for some trend or other, and end up with a piece or two from that season.  I was not a huge fan of embroidery until I saw this top.  I couldn't stop thinking about it, and since I had some store credit to their online shop, I had to get it.  I love it even more in person than online.

One quick amusing story about this outfit.  Janssen sent me these gorgeous gold earrings a few years ago for my birthday, and I wear them quite often and love them.  Last week, I wore them to an event with Adam, and another guest there told me they look like potato chips.  I can't stop laughing about it! 

Hope you are having a good week!

I can't wait to see what Janssen and Merrick are wearing!  You should check them out, too! 



  1. Are they Nickel and Suede earrings? They totally don't look like a potato chip, but that is really funny. I love your top.

    1. Yes, they are Nickel and Suede. I thought it was pretty funny, too! And thank you! This is totally a current favorite, and I am wearing this top all the time!
