How to Take Your Favorite Floral Blouse From Work to Weekend

Once March hits, it’s hard (for me at least) to want to wear anything other than florals. And, since this dress was such a favorite for all of us last year, I was super excited to see the style come back in a blouse one year later. The best part? At $51, it’s totally affordable–even more so if you score it on sale.

How to Wear It On the Weekend

I love the way this heavy pair of black jeans pairs against the lightweight cotton of this floral blouse. And, in Pittsburgh at springtime, there’s no leaving the house without a trench coat to protect against some inevitable showers. Being so short but wanting to wear flat shoes for comfort, I always find the best option to be a nude color, able to blend in with the natural line of my leg. It’s the simplest way to elongate a shorter leg.

How to Wear It To The Office

Swapping out your weekend pieces to transition to an office-friendly look takes only a minute. Change your jeans for a pair of black trousers, and your flats for a classic pump (bonus if you print-mix with leopard!). If you’re commute is like mine, you’ll need a bag big enough to fit your lunch and a (of course) your daily planner. And honestly–that. is. it. It doesn’t take much when you’ve got a really great staple, versatile enough for just about anything.

I was honestly thrilled when I saw this blouse and, after purchasing the dress last year, was familiar enough with the fit. I must say that–for petite ladies–it runs long in the arms. That said, I think it’s absolutely adorable, and rolling the sleeves is a quick fix to making it work for a smaller frame. Let me know if you love it as much as I do in your comments below!
