Strangely, or I suppose it’s just seasonable, whenever I wear this ensemble
to lunch, a snow storm would descend upon an otherwise
forecast-to-be-dry day. Sure, it’d be cold (maybe it’s punishment for my
dressing so inappropriately for the weather) but there would be no
other indications of precipitation.
But I am really tired of the snow so this ensemble will not be repeated for another year.

Crew Cashmere-lined Leather Gloves (this year’s version here) | Ann Taylor Tweed Clutch | Kate Spade New York Licorice Metallic Leather Pumps|
And I am really excited to share this Everlane silk blouse with rounded collar with you all. It is by far the best white blouse I own (and I own many) and is no worse off, quality-wise, than pricier Equipment blouses (will write a post comparing the two).
The rounded collar, of which I am an impassioned fan, is an equitable compromise between a traditional pointed collar and the more youthful peter pan collar.
blouse in white is semi-sheer but with flesh-toned undergarments,
sheerness is a nonissue (it’s probably difficult to gauge opaqueness from these pictures; I was wearing tan thermals under the blouse).
For those of you similar to me in size, the blouse in XS fit me without glaring fit issues (sleeves can stand to be shortened slightly) and
should transition work and weekend wear well.
This blouse is available with pointed collars (11 colors) and banded collars (14 colors) as well, if those styles suit you better.
And this outfit is not possible without my favorite blog friends: the reviews of trusty Jean (necklace and shoes) and Cee (clutch and blouse) and the generosity of S (while this is the skirt’s first blog feature, it has been worn repeatedly to pretty much any occasion that calls for a touch of sheen).
