Wardrobe Edit: Tops & Blouses

I think if I were left to my own devices I would never stop buying white blouses.  I love them.  They're clean, they go with every kind of trouser, and they flatter every complexion.  I did, however, narrow down my white blouse assortment so that every one I own now serves a different purpose: 

  • A sleeveless silk blouse that can be worn alone or as an underpinning, dressed down with jeans, or dressed up with high waisted trousers and a boot
  • A short sleeve tomboy collared button down shirt, perfect with boyfriend jeans and sandals
  • A crisp cotton boat neck blouse with a tucked back detail, perfect with black cigarette pants, dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats
  • A boxy linen (off-white) woven tee with buttons down the back, my most comfortable hippy girl top, often worn on the weekends or to grab a pint around the corner in the evening

I also found, to my amazement, that I actually own some tops with color in them.  Although I think olive and navy are technically still neutrals.  If you find me with a red blouse in my possession, you'll know something is seriously wrong.  

  • Green oversize silk crepe collared blouse
  • Navy with ivory trefoil print silk blouse from Steven Alan that I bought forever ago and still wear and love; my favorite iteration is tucked into pencil leg denim with a belt (thanks Pinterest)
  • Navy silk collared sleeveless button down, also purchased forever ago and still worn and loved

Pretty happy with the edit.  Next stop: sweaters.
