Listen to me.
This post is super short and sweet, but it features several items that I really love. And I just know y’all will love them too. We’re going to start with a flat lay I showed you a couple of weeks ago, and then I’m going to show me wearing the outfit in the flat lay. And if you check out instastories later today, I’ll be storying the outfit as well.
Let’s get to it.
First up, this top.
You need it.
And if we’re being honest, you probably need it in several colors. Because it’s just that good. And it’s ONLY $39.
I currently own it in 2 colors: Cayenne Red and Black. And in the interest of full disclosure here….I’m thinking of getting a 3rd color too. I just can’t decide if I want to go with ivory or light mauve. It comes in 9 colors, so there’s something for everybody.
More about the top in a minute… but let’s spend some time on the leopard calf hair mules! Every year I talk about how I always think that footwear is so hard when going from season to season. Well, these babies are what my transitional shoe dreams are made of! You know that time of year, when you feel silly in flip flops or sandals, but you feel just as silly in a pair of boots? THESE LEOPARD MULES will come through for you! I’ll be showing these on my insastories today as well.
Some reviews say to size down, but my regular size 6 1/2s were perfect on me. My heel hung off just a bit with the size 6s. Click HERE for the mules.
And although I absolutely love the mules (and highly recommend them!), I understand that mules aren’t for everybody, so I wanted to give y’all some other leopard shoe options. Because whether it’s mules, flats, heels, or booties….you need to have a pair of leopard shoes in your life. (And while we are on the subject of leopard, you need a leopard print belt too.) If you see a pair of leopard shoes you like, just click on the image!
Now, let’s talk about the blouse.
This blouse is a staple that many of you already own (I have had it in black for a couple of years), but I recently added this paprika color that is officially called “Cayenne Red”. It’s flattery, flowy, and drapes beautifully. And it’s sooooo soft. I got the small (my regular size), even though some suggest to size down. As you can see, this top looks casual and cool with denim shorts, but it would also look great dressed up with work pants or a pencil skirt. It would also look awesome with a blazer thrown over it.
It really is a perfect separate for an office environment. But even though I don’t work in an office, I still think that owning 3 different colors is a rock solid idea.
Now let’s get to the other parts of the outfit. I’ve been telling you for two years that you need the denim shorts. And I think I’ve proven my point by wearing them just about every day this summer. Y’all are huge fans too, and I get messages about them several times a week! I wear my regular size 27s, but I would size down if between sizes.
And last but not least, the accessories! The necklace is mixed metal and will become a favorite for sure. The earrings are delicate and feminine, and the bottom teardrops have a beautiful patina. The clutch is cream and gold with a fun tassel. It’s lined in a striking royal blue and has 1 interior pocket. It’s gorgeous in real life. Use the code SOIDID to get 15% OFF this clutch!

Told you! SHORT and SWEET!
