Outfit for a Thursday: Blue and White Wrap Blouse

When I was younger, the more funk and spunk I could infuse into an outfit, the better; while I did not emphatically and blindingly embrace trends, at all, I was more prone to transient styles as opposed to classic pieces. Since I have been working, and have prided myself in maintaining a sort of glamorous aura about my cubicle, at least as far as clothing goes, I have grown attracted to and come to rely on classical aesthetics. That being said, I still enjoy a twist, a slight bit of intrigue, an element of funk, subtly integrated into a look, especially an office look, to keep life interesting.

Blue and white striped button-down blouses are a bastion of professional garb; a veritable uniform. This particular blouse is a welcome and pleasant surprise, as it is a wrap blouse, featuring a softer collar line and an intricate sash turned bow. Though it is difficult to discern from the photographs, as I am not always the most diligent and attentive model in the early mornings, the blouse cinches at and accentuates the waist in a most flattering fashion. I am fairly certain this will be working itself into my wardrobe rotation on a regular cycle.

To pair with the new blouse, I chose a pair of wide-leg dark charcoal slacks, as well as a pair of dark gray and silver metallic heels.

I always seem to forget about particular jewelry pieces, then discover them once more, and find myself in a state of elation; this is a wonderful routine, especially as I stress and gnaw over other aspects of my life, those immaterial and emotionally weighty things. This vintage costume piece features pearls and rhinestones, a great glittering combination.
