As yesterday's post evidenced, I have been trying to model some of the clothes in my Etsy shop, particularly some "hidden treasures" that I feel like are being overlooked because of dull-looking photos. So today I paired this mustard blouse with my new skater skirt and a great metal belt that I got on my thrifting expedition last week. This blouse is really lightweight and lovely — it's the perfect mustard color, and I love the pleating and the slightly puffed sleeves.
I added plum tights and my trusty black oxford pumps for a look that kind of reminded me of Steffy's Pros and Cons.
And for work, I added this gray Sasson jacket, which made the outfit feel a little more "me" and gave me another layer over this light, semi-sheer blouse. This jacket is such a perfect finishing touch to any outfit to make it look classy and polished, I'm already imagining 10 other outfits it would go great with!
I am really happy with how the look came out — it's definitely a departure from my usual style, but I feel comfortable in it and it was fun to try out something different.
