Button Up

vogue-sunglasses-street-style-nataie-joos-australian-fashion-week-clementinebayYesterday marked the first day of fall, although at 80 degrees it feels more like the middle of August. I’m not quite ready to read, research or write about sweaters at the moment, but I am ready to transition out of sandals and tanks and into more of a sophisticated fall like wardrobe.

Blouses, for me, are a great transition and hold piece. There’s not one item sexier or more classic than a great blouse. Completely versatile and worn dressed up or down, a blouse brings individual style up a notch. From high end vintage to a more modest H&M find, a great cut blouse is easily accessible and affordable by everyone. As we move into a more sophisticated time of the year, button up and start reaching for those feminine touches. Have a great weekend.  xoxo

Not Your Grandmother’s Blouse

tumblr_mcznnvtAud1ribnzto1_500New York fashion week is just days away.  The week of shows, parties and overall chaos is a love hate relationship, but the one constant that follows us is “what are you wearing.”  We’re still technically in summer and although New York seems to be cooling off some, the heat and humidity is always a fashion don’t.  Wearing comfortable, functional clothing is my goal when dressing.  Whether a night out or a marathon day of work, being comfortable and stylish is the goal.

Blouses have been on the scene for a while now and they have become a go to staple in my closet.  From YSL vintage to any pattern and color of the rainbow, blouses have left grandma status and they’ve become a fashionable friend.

Opening the blouses and wearing them buttoned down to the sternum is my favorite way in sexing up a conservative blouse.  Depending on your bust size coming up a bit higher may be a necessity, but that’s why they invented double sided tape.  In any case, whether you’re dealing with humidity or just a case of fashion burn out, go back to basics and bring back the lady within.  xoxo
