A Printed Blazer & Classic Cap Toes

Jacket: ASOS, Shirt: H&M, Skirt: Lulu's similar here, Belt: ASOS, Sunnies: Chloe c/o Ditto, Earrings & Necklace: H&M, Bracelet: IN PINK c/o, Watch: Michael Kors, Shoes: Sole Society "Blakeley" c/o, Bag: Prada, Lipstick: Napoleon Perdis "Devine Goddess - Eros" c/o

I find that a bow blouse is like a woman's version of a neck tie. When I want to create my own bow blouse I take a scarf, or in this case a sash, and tie it around my collared shirt. Today I paired the top with a black pleated skirt and a printed blazer. I decided to add a metal plated belt just to break up the pattern a little. This skirt is one of my favorite "basics" in my wardrobe and it's always my go-to for any time that I'm stuck in a what-to-wear rut.

What are your go-to wardrobe basics?

I hope you've had a great Thursday! Thanks so much for reading!

  6. I must know...what's the best (i.e. most cost effective way) to purchase high end designer items (shoes and purses mainly)? Love the bag!

    1. You want to buy things in the off season to get the best price. ie: buy boots in the summer and strappy sandals in the winter. Classic items like this Prada bag for instance typically don't go on sale. I would recommend ebay. Make sure to shop only sellers that are guaranteed authentic and recommended by ebay. I hope this helps!
