When I did my favorite purchases post I was surprised to discover that I'd only worn my Loft utility blouse in one outfit post. Consider that corrected:
How many of these blouses can I own before it becomes a problem? I currently have two and they are getting a lot of wear. I mean, I love my Everlane silk but they require hand-washing and ironing and... maybe I just learned something about myself. High maintenance doesn't work for me. Loft Utility blouses are so easy and they come in a bunch of colors and cute patterns. I currently have my eye on this tulip print and there are a couple of nice solid colors that are now $15.88. Just saying.
Because I can't resist ruining everything, I threw on my beloved and oversized Eileen Fisher cardigan. It's a workhorse and very warm and I wear it a lot. EF is expensive but easy to find on sale. This grey one looks pretty nice and I love the drape of this dark green version. And ooh, this one is nice if you wear a size small (they run rull big.) If you're looking for something less spendy, this Gap cardigan looks very cozy! On to details:
My bag is a very old MBMJ mag bag in fool's gold. They pop up on eBay* occasionally and there is a larger Faridah in fool's gold for a good price right now. In the land of new, this gold Kors bag is exactly the right color and this under $30 gold satchel is a good cheap 'n cheerful option.
Finally, my shoes. They're Chie Mihara and there is no real comparison but this pair of red mary janes is pretty dang cute and these aren't bad either. But really, Chies are the best.
