I just discovered your blog and I am very happy as I have a "what to wear dilemma". I was recently gifted the beautiful Scrollwork blouse from Anthropologie, shown here . It is a beautiful purple and parchment/deep ivory shade, however I'm at a loss at what to pair it with to pull it off on an average day during the week. I normally wear only jeans, but would like to pull away from that to a more feminine wardrobe. On the website, they pair it with a pretty ivory dotted skirt...but it looks more like something I'd wear to an event as opposed to a normal day just running around town. I'm open to any suggestions. I'm 5'2" with a long torso, so I usually wear petite sizes on bottom and regular sizes on top. I hope you can help.Blouse - It would be so easy to dress this up and really show it off with a tweed skirt. Dressing down is a little trickier.
Sweater - A simple cashmere wrap from Boden still shows off the blouse.
Skirt - I have a similar gray corduroy skirt that I wear all the time. So perfect with black tights and flats for everyday. Have it tailored if it is too long.
Boots - Not cheap, but very nice and apt to last a long time. From Frye.
Tote Bag - A classic from LL Bean.
Necklace - Double branch in silver from Michelle Chang via Etsy.
Earrings - Red coral studs.
Cup - A porcelain "not a paper cup" for your tea on the go.
A very stylish way to run errands!
