#OOTD Grown-up girl








The other day, I took a look at my wardrobe and came to the realization that I have no nice blouses… All of my tops are cotton or cotton blend. Ok well I do have a few button ups but I only wear those for work. However, I have no tops for a nice brunch, or a family gathering, or a fancy date night! So I decided it was time to take a little trip to Nordstrom’s Rack and treat myself to a fancy blouse. I usually stay away from that place for good reasons. Even though it’s “rack” it can still be a little pricey, and I’m one for finding steals at the thrift store. But I was on a mission to find a nice blouse even if it costs more than some chump change. I found this blouse as well as 2 others that I fell in love with. One good tip for buying expensive clothing; if you can leave the store without buying it and not feel sad you didn’t get it, then you don’t need it. If you know you will be sad if you left the store without it, then get it. Make sense? Basically listen to the buyers remorse feeling.

I also styled my new jewelry piece from RocksBox with my new blouse. I really like this box because it had a mix between this large statement necklace and a small dainty necklace. I like to change up my style and mix and match. For example, My outfit was a bit on the “lighter” side so I decided to slip in some edginess into the outfit. A good way to make an outfit darker is to add some dark bling and accessories so you can show off your darkness even in the dead of summer! And to lighten up a dark outfit (but why would you??) break up the darkness with a long dainty necklace.

If you haven’t checked out RocksBox, definitely take a look! My code nickiteaxoxo is still good till the end of the year and it will get you your first month’s subscription absolutely free!
