Ann Taylor jacket, Club Monaco blouse, Banana Republic jeans, J.Crew boots

The last time I talked about silk button-down shirts was nearly 6 months ago, so I figured I would do an update on my new favorite piece, ever. J.Crew Blythe blouses never really fit me perfectly. If I bought them the correct size for my chest the gaped everywhere else, and often never buttoned over my hips. After much trial and error, and further encouraged by a recent sale, I purchased the Club Monaco Sawyer blouse (i’m wearing a M) in this gorgeous emerald color and am hooked. The chest fits perfectly, it is just tapered enough in the waist, and the bottom button fits over my hips. Win!


My shoulders fit perfectly in this blouse and the length on the arms is only about half an inch too long; something I can deal with. While the same price (roughly) as the J.Crew alternative, I feel like the quality here is better. The silk seems softer and I like that the pockets do not have breast flaps as well. Ringing in at $129 full price, these tops are often discounted and come in so many fun colors. This is seriously going to become a wardrobe staple.
