Navy and White

29 Jul

White Skirt with Silky Navy Blouse

Navy and white is a classic summer combination in my book. Work attire has become a lot more frequent than weekend attire as of late, so I’ve been getting a little more dressed up than usual during the work week. I don’t know about you, but I tend to feel more confident the more dressed up I am. It just feels right. Unfortunately when I’m shopping, buying dressy clothes feels a little too right. The dress section of my closet is overflowing with cocktail dresses that I’ve purchased in the past few years (with nowhere to wear them). I’ve been focusing on purchasing more separates and less dresses lately. I mean, you can’t really mix and match a dress quite as easily as a skirt or top.

Are any of you guys familiar with the Maison Jules line? It’s an exclusive-to-Macy’s brand that features feminine, Parisian-inspired pieces. The clothes are all simple but elegant, which is the epitome of Parisian street style. I got this top a few months ago (which is now on major sale!), and I instantly knew it’d become a workwear favorite. I’m a girl who appreciates a good sleeve, be it a bell sleeve or flutter sleeve, or any sleeve for that matter. They’re especially nice in the summer, when it gets extra hot and all your arms want is some room to breathe!

I’m also pretty excited about the background today. There’s a flower park near me that is incredible during the summer. I actually didn’t know it existed until last summer when I randomly drove past it and swore I was dreaming (all I could see was tons of colorful flowers, and I was driving pretty fast). Once you start blogging, you become overly aware of “good backgrounds”. I’ve been waiting months for the flowers to bloom, and they look amazing! I love how flowers can instantly improve a bad day.
