Help wanted.

Okay, I’ll get right to it: a couple of years ago, I scored this adorable blouse from the clearance rack at a local boutique (orig. $48, sale price $20! ). 


Super cute, right? The soft blush tone against the unexpected snazzy collar…

Well, I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t worn it ONCE since I bought it. Literally, the tag is still attached! It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I’ve never been able to figure out how to wear it. Like, what do I pair with it? Pants? Skirt? What kind? How long? What color? Tucked in, or loose? And for what type of occasion?

After scoring such a good deal on this top, I’m determined to wear it at least once this summer! Please, please, PLEASE comment with any and all styling advice. Do this bargain justice.

Merci  ♥  (I feel like this blouse would speak French)

    Oh that would look SO CUTE on you. Ok, you pair it with skinny pants, and heels if you are willing to wear them, otherwise ballet flats. For a date, wear a black bra underneath, for school, a black tank top is fine. Leave it un-tucked–the tightness of the pants will balance out the loose feeling. When it gets colder, put a structured jacket on top (still leaving un-tucked.) You can pin a cute brooch in the center of the collar for jewelry, or wear a pair of large studs in your ears. It’s made for you–you have the PERFECT frame for such a piece. Go lovely you!!!

    If you go the skirt route–wear something that is tight on your waist and tuck in the shirt. You can go sweet with a round skirt that has a structured waistline, or sexy with a black pencil skirt.

    how sheer is it? I’d wear a solid sleeveless minidress under it if its sheer. If not, it would look fantastic with a high waisted pencil skirt or tucked into the hem of some chino shorts!

      Hi! It’s very sheer so I’d wear a nude camisole underneath. Thanks for the suggestions! 👏🏼

    I’d rock it with skinny black pants/jeans and black heels. Wear the shirt out/not tucked in. Maybe throw on a blazer for a day time look and then take it off for the sexy night time look! Go get ’em!
