covered button blouse

maje coat {sold out / similar} . j. crew shirt {on sale} . vince pants {old / in blue}. sorel boots . mulberry handbag . dogeared necklace . catbird + virginie millefiori rings . essie polish in 'wicked'

I bought this top on sale back in November and have worn it many times since then, however I hadn't managed to photograph it until yesterday. It's funny how that happens. Typical sweater and skinny pants = tons of time for photos. If I'm dressed in anything the slightest bit nicer it's either dark out or one of us (me, it's usually me) is running late. This simple white top has become one of my "go to" pieces for date nights / evenings. The collarless neckline and covered buttons make it a little different than your stand white shirt, while the longer length gives it a bit more versatility. You can wear it with just about anything - skirts, pants, shorts I'd imagine in warmer weather... - as well as year round.

Yesterday I wore it to work with my favorite non black pants (these are seriously comfortable - nice and stretchy) and snow boots because like I said yesterday, mystery puddles. I made the mistake of wearing my regular ankle boots on Tuesday and ended up covered in little speckles of dirty slush water by the time I got to my office. It was gross. As jealous as I am of people wearing regular footwear, I think I'll be sticking with snow boots for the foreseeable future. Is anyone else having this problem? Really, it can't just be me.

On a more pleasant note, don't forget to enter the giveaway here.

  8. Oh I love your blouse, I have a similar one and agree that it feels much more special than a regular blouse. I'm also right with you on ankle booties, I think they have to be retired until spring :(
