A White Blouse One More Way + Hello Monday Linkup

Recognize this shirt?  Yup, this is the third look in a row featuring this machine-washable white silk blouse.  I've worn it many more other ways already too.  I wish I found the perfect white blouse earlier.
Speaking of repeated wear, these pants and shoes are absolute workwear staples.  I have the pants in charcoal and black and wear each one probably once a week.  They look polished, but are insanely comfortable and don't stretch out at all.  It's amazing.

The DVF Find & Hello Monday Linkup

Hey Strangers!

These last couple weeks have been insane; sorry for the unannounced radio silence.  Work was very hectic there for a bit, and it caught up with me.  I got hit hard by a nasty bug and while I'm much better now, I'm definitely still recovering.  Thankfully, we had a warm weekend earlier in February, so I still have a few looks left to share.

So a few months ago, the husband and I were grabbing Raising Cane's (have I mentioned I love chicken tenders?) and it's right next to my favorite TJ Maxx in St. Louis.  Favorite TJ Maxx sounds like a funny thing, right?  But this location has such a great designer section.  So, while we were in the area, husband asked if I wanted to make any other stops before chicken tenders, and I requested we peruse TJ Maxx.  Mostly I just wanted a couple new candles, but a little looking never hurt.  Right?  Well, I fell in love with this vest AND spied this skirt, but they only had a 2, and while it narrowly zipped, buying it that small was not responsible.  
After a bit of internet sleuthing I 1) found my size available online and 2) discovered the perfect sweater produced to go with it.  The sweater however was sold out EVERYWHERE.  Miraculously, while texting Annie whining about not being able to find an orange sweater to pair with this skirt, I decided to search for the DVF style one more time and I found it brand new with tags at The RealReal!  Since I had never shopped at The RealReal, I got $25 off my purchase, so it was such a bargain!  Such a shopping victory.

The White Silk Blouse + Hello Monday Linkup

Hi Friends!

I recently scooped up what I've now deemed the best white blouse ever, so today I'm kicking off a series of 3 ways to wear a white silk blouse.  This blouse is a stretch-silk that's, wait for it, MACHINE WASHABLE.  I'm not a fan of dry cleaning, so this is a big win.  It's not too sheer, has a subtle sheen, and it the perfect longer length for layering.  I also have the style in the black crepe weave.

For the first look, I wanted to put together a look for a date or night out.  I opted for some destructed denim and rolling up the sleeves to take it a little more casual, and what I'd probably consider my sexiest sandals.  I love the barely there silhouette, and they certainly lengthen the legline.

A Little Bit of Everything + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy Monday!

These last couple weeks have been a little hectic, and a lot cold!  So formal blog photo content is a little scarce.  

That being said, I have a few work outfits to share and a few other fun odds'n'ends.

Who wore it best?

I wore this look to work a little while ago, and then posted the 'who wore it best' poll on Instagram, and it wasn't even a competition.   Ha!  Sherlock won by a landslide, as he should've.
Target scarf | A&F sweater | Ann Taylor skirt | Frye boots

Business Casual Work Wear

I also wore this outfit to work a week ago on Thursday.  I had zero meetings, and decided to see if anything bad happened if I wore jeans to the office to literally sit at my desk all day.  
Spoiler, nothing happened.  Nobody cared.
Theory blazer | J.Crew Factory cardigan | H&M neckerchief | J.Crew tee | 7 For All Mankind ankle skinny jeans | Jimmy Choo flats

Serious Shoe Decisions

I stumbled upon Margaux shoes looking for the perfect navy flats.  Then I fell in love with the navy suede heels.  I think I may pull the trigger on those this month, and if they're as amazing as I hope, add the ballet flats in cognac or pale pink next month.  What do you think?
