What I Wore: The Best Silk Blouse, Ever
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?
