What I Wore: Silk Blouse (Popbasic; Similar Here); Tote (Popbasic); Jeans (Similar Here), Gold Chain Necklace (Similar Here)

Suzanne asked on her eponymous blog, "What's on your Wardrobe Bucket List?" Ah, I adore her style and sass. She did say though, that if it was a "perfect white button down" you'd have no clue what a wardrobe bucket list was. But, oh, Suzanne, you have not felt this shirt. It is glorious. Do  any of you know what the word sybarite means? A dictionary definition says "someone who is self-indulgent in sensual pleasures" and boy oh boy does this shirt turn me into a such a sybarite; it is just so soft and comfortable to wear.  It is a crepe silk that is this amazingly soft thing, and so light. A big plus is that is is not very sheer- always hard with whites and creams. I got it as part of Popbasic's Kickstarter project to sell the "Best Silk Blouse, Ever."Sadly, Popbasic is going through some tough times and restructuring what/when/how they will be selling things, but this blouse certainly lives up to its name! So, I'm definitely keeping my eye on the company, because they will be sure to continue to create fantastic items for your wardrobe.

The rest of this outfit is quite simple-well, the blouse is simplicity itself as well- but that is what I love about it. When you find pieces that are truly classic, and that you really love, they can mix in a million different ways and you still get get a great look. If you've been a reader of Never Fully Dressed for any time at all, you'll know I love shorts, will have seen these mocs kicking it around, and this gold chain necklace- inherited from my grandmother when she could no longer close the clasp- is in constant rotation. The blouse, of course, is new, but I'm already dreaming up other ways to pair it and almost am bummed the school year is so far off because this is going to rock my work wardrobe. But only almost because summer is summer, of course! And, as these pictures show, one of the most beautiful times of the year in Wyoming.

What is on your wardrobe bucket list?

  1. I saw Popbasic's Kickstarter campaign for this blouse, but decided not to splurge on it. After this post, I am seriously regretting it...

  6. I have a couple blouses similar to this, and I completely agree- they are all pretty sheer! But pretty just the same. Wyoming in the Summer IS stunning. I hope you are having a lovely season so far, Kristian!

  7. I love the stark brightness of the lettering on the bag next to the overall outfit. Also, I dunno about the silk blouse. I'm sure it's amaze. I mean. Come on. Silk. However, I'm 100% certain that you have amaaaazing legs. Wow! :D

  8. Dude, I'm so happy for you on finding a shirt that you're so comfortable being in! That's the best feeling, I'm sure. :) Especially when blouses (at least for me) are generally uncomfortable. I like things to be as flowy and free as possible, even if they're a little tighter, haha.

    PS) work dem legs. WORK.
