outfit post: floral print tie-neck blouse, burgundy cardigan, tan work pants

Inspiration - What Not To Wear

I just browsed back through my outfit archives and I was really surprised to see that I've only posted two other outfits with this blouse. It's one of my favorite go-to no brainer tops that I wear to work all the time. Maybe it's the fact I wear it so much that I just assumed there were already a dozen posts with it and you'd be bored seeing it again? Who knows what my brain was up to... not me. Anywho - now that I realize my mistake - I'll try to show some of the other ways I wear it in the upcoming weeks. :)

outfit post: lilac pleated keyhole blouse, black suit pants, white belt, black pumps

Inspiration - Express

I found this blouse at Express (**update just saw it's 40% right now!) and I am in love. I am always on the lookout for easy work appropriate tops. When I first saw the shirt on the hanger I was a little concerned that the keyhole would show too much cleavage and ruin the suitability for the office. But I tried it on and found that the cutout is high enough that, even if you are larger chested like me, it's still conservative. And it's the kind of fabric that doesn't wrinkle very easily. Score.

The only issue I had was deciding which of the seven colors to buy. I finally went with lilac because I don't own many purple toned tops. And now that I have the blouse home and find myself wanting to wear it everyday - I am considering going back to get another color. :)

outfit post: floral top, purple cropped pants, cutout flats

Inspiration - H&M

I stopped by Old Navy over the weekend and saw some really pretty floral tanks - they remind me so much of this shirt I got a few years ago from Loft. I have worn this shirt so many times - just having all the colors in the floral allows for lots of cardigan matching or in this case coordination with colored pants. Love.

outfit post: black shirt dress, pointed toe black pumps

Inspiration - ideeli.com

I found this dress on the super sale rack at Loft a few years ago. It was one of those spur of the moment grabs on my way to the dressing room and I ended up loving the fit. I like it a lot but I get confused with when to wear it. Because of the weight of the fabric and the fact it's sleeveless - I feel like it should be a spring/summer dress. But the black color makes it feel more fall/winter. I guess I just need to embrace my dark side for warm weather!
