Adrien: Oh, right. Blouse.

I read this post on The Working Closet the other day and was all, "Oh, right. Blouse. I should. Yes. Ugh."

I don't know know why I'm like that but things that button up the front always feel gape-y and weird to me.  She's totally right, though - it makes everywhere you go somewhere nice. Also, I think we're all tired of seeing me wear that purple slub Gap tee. Anyway! I pulled out the drapey blouse I bought last fall and tucked it in and stuff:

Added a little jacket:

This is what it looks like all buttoned up (which I never actually do):

And not that anyone was concerned, but I got my black boots back and they're as good as new (though I can't say the same for my poor knees):

blouse: Old Navy (new version)
jacket: Banana Republic
skirt: Ann Taylor (similar)
necklace: J Crew locket
boots: Camper (similar)
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar)


  1. I like the blouse... and I LOVE that jacket!

    I go through whole years or two without wearing a blouse, but The Working Closet is right, once I put it on I look nice even though I'm wearing it in the same manner as a tee. Off to find my blouses...

  2. This is my favorite look of yours yet. I especially love the red skirt and gray tights combination!

  3. That jacket is KILLING me. I love it.

    Also, I am a major fan of the blouse. I have so many and continue to buy more.

  4. Aw, thanks you guys! And to think, I wasn't sure if this outfit was going to work...

  5. It works!--to lazy to sign into Google at the moment.

  6. You look so pulled together and polished! Love the blouse.

  7. This post makes me crazy happy -- your outfit is absolutely perfect, and you look so comfortable and polished. (And now I may need to have that Old Navy blouse, in the green. Thank you!)

    1. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm thinking I might buy another one too, in the crazy pink color.

  8. gee- those camper boots are swell- how is that you always find variants from my fave brands that I've never seen before? will u shop for me?!

    I adore pencil skirts and blouses. yum.

  9. Gah this is perfect! The blouse is gorgeous and I love the purple with red.
