Work and Play

Blazer:  Aritzia (old, great alternative here), Top:  Anthropologie, Jeans:  Forever 21, Bag:  Anthropologie (similar here), Shoes:  Valentino, Bracelet:  Nordstrom, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban, Earrings:  Anthropologie 
I picked up this blouse the other day at Anthropologie and immediately started thinking of the many different ways I was going to wear it.  I love the crocheted collar detail and the way the blouse looks fabulous both untucked with jeans and tucked tightly into a high waisted skirt.  It is yet another piece that will be easy to transition to warmer weather.
Cardigan:  J.Crew, Skirt:  Bebe (very old, similar here), Laptop tote:  Target, Shoes:  Christian Louboutin, Bangle:  Forever 21 ~ stack of 7 for under $9!!!
P.S.  My new solution for the winter blues is to just ignore them and hope they go away.  The spots you see in the picture above are flurries.  That's right ~ bare legs and flurries.  I'm pretending that I'm not freezing cold and hoping by ignoring winter, it will just come to an end!
I'm sure by now that you are sick of seeing me wearing my Valentino rockstud pumps.  I do wear them a TON which is good because I'm trying to get my money's worth ~ plus ~ I haven't had a pedi since Thanksgiving so I'm sticking to close-toed until further notice!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this blouse! Looks great with each look!!


  2. Love the lace collar detailing on this blouse - and both ways you've styled it here are perfect! :)

  3. Hi Margo. I am Ada. Nice to "meet" you. I found your blog through one of the link-ups and I am glad I did. You have incredible, chic, elegant style. You are definitely a very stylish teacher. I am really loving today's outfit - both of its versions. So cool & unique. The top is so pretty & girly and I do love those heels.

    I am going to follow your blog from now on and I hope you stop by mine and support me too, by following. I just want to let you know that I run a Weekly Feature and here is something for you to check out:

    Thanks, Ada.
