Marianne: Cute From Behind.

I feel like I need to start things off by saying wow, this top is WAY cuter in person than it looks online. It's the Clara Buttondown from anthropologie and it took me forever to even find because it doesn't really look like that. All high/low hemline nonsense, no. In fact, I titled this post "cute from behind" because I bought this top based on how cute the split back is, and it looks derpy and dumb in the product shot. This top looks and feels really nice and is the perfect thing to dress up slim bootcut jeans and clogs (mine are Miz Mooz but these are a close dupe and whoa, cheap) on a spring-is-coming-but-not-quite-yet kind of day. I like the tiny bird print but it comes in some nice solid colors too, and the price isn't bad for anthro.

Here is where I should have included a picture of the back, but my fragile ego can't handle seeing that particular angle this early on a Monday morning, so instead let's talk about this awesome bracelet. This J. Crew Factory Crystal Sunburst Cuff Bracelet is inexpensive (I got it with a code for $12!) but looks super high end. I was pleased to see that the crystals are riveted on, not glued on to the lucite. I adore it.

I am constantly in need of colorful, cute blouses to dress up jeans at work, and I just love this one! Definitely worth a look. I've been wearing it with my House of Harlow locket, but I think it could be fun with a chunky, sparkly necklace too. This one's a keeper.

P.S., on my lips is Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Sultry, which I am OBSESSED with. It's so perfect, I feel the need to buy 17 more of them to hoard. Get yourself some.
