Outfit Of The Day (Espoused By A Blouse!)

Why, hello there! How was your weekend? Mine was nice, thanks. Having family in town means doing lots and lots (and lots) of running around, so I’ll be back here in a bit with a more lengthy update!
On to the outfit–one of my favorite recent trends has been the silk-blouse-phenom. They are incredibly easy to dress up (and dress down) and look elegant while still being very comfortable to wear. I love the trench flaps on this grayish-greenish-brownish one by Ann Taylor; it gives the blouse a bit more of a structured shape. If you like it for yourself, however, consider sizing up as it does run really small through the chest–I actually sized up two whole sizes and I probably could have gone up two more, as I can see that the buttons are still pulling a teensy bit in these pictures.  This also has a lot to do with me eating a lot of REALLY, REALLY GOOD cupcakes at the 230328743290 weddings I’ve attended in the past 2 weeks not wearing the right bra here, either. This blouse is definitely for the non-cupcake loving flat chested.
(Fashion bloggers: they have jiggly-puff-cupcake-boob problems just like you do.)
But all in all I do really love the blouse; especially paired with a bright skirt, smart blazer, and fun necklace, even if I do have to wear it buttoned down until I de-puff from all of the recent, tasty celebrations:

Top: c/o Ann Taylor Silk Trench Shirt (buy it here) (similar style here) (and here)
Skirt: Zara (buy it here) (& a pencil skirt style here) (and here + take )
Belt: J Crew (similar style here) (and here for $21)
Jacket: J Crew Library Blazer (buy it here) (similar style here) (and here at ASOS) (and here on sale for $49.95!)
Bag: Lanvin Happy Mini Pop Python Bag (buy it here) (similar style here) (and here by Tory Burch) (and here, on sale for $35!)
Shoes: Alexander Wang (similar style here by Giuseppe Zanotti) (and here by Nine West) (and a pretty pump version here)
Necklace: Topshop Chain and Tube Necklace (buy it here)
Sunglasses: Prada Baroque Round Sunglasses (buy them here)

    Very chic – and that necklace is really interesting. The hardwood floors are looking so nice; can't wait to see it with the furniture back in place. Didn't you get your new sofa set at Z Gallerie? I was there last weekend and I think I saw it. So pretty!
