Is it just me, or are the last few weeks of summer the busiest of all? Every week I find myself with more on my calendar, from events to hosting guests to impromptu trips (I’m heading to Kansas City next weekend with a few other Chicago bloggers – can’t wait to share more!). As much as I’m excited for fall, there is still so much to enjoy before then. I’m trying to take it slow and soak in every moment. I also turn 30 in November, so this is officially my last summer in my 20’s. More reason to be present and mindful!

As we’re nearing the end of the summer, I’ve been slowly introducing fall pieces back into my wardrobe. Chunky sweaters, ankle boots, and my favorite layering piece…the oversized blouse. This weekend, I paired my white blouse with a Ganni denim wrap top I purchased a couple of years on ASOS. This denim top has been worn as a beach cover, a halter with a bandeau and now as a layer over a blouse. There are just so many ways to wear it! I particularly love how the bow looks in the back.

I’m a big fan of layering over this blouse, if you haven’t noticed (I did it here and here too). An oversized white blouse is (IMO) a wardrobe necessity – it’s one of the best closet basics! If you don’t have one yet, get on it ASAP. I’ve linked to a few for you to shop below, you’ll thank me later.
