THE CASE FOR THE ESSENTIAL WHITE BLOUSE

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe we are inching our way closer to March already! This month has flown by, but I have to admit, I am excited to be done with it as our weather has been so terrible! Living in Southern California we are so spoiled with nonstop sunny and warm days, so the fact that it’s been chilly and rainy for weeks is just hard to get used to (and depressing)! I am hoping for a much nicer March.

Today I am talking about my love for a fab white blouse. Yes, totally and completely simple, but that’s what makes it such an essential piece for any wardrobe. Specifically, I am all about one paired with a great pair of jeans (which creates the most timeless and chic look). You cannot go wrong with this pairing!

I first saw  this Cinq a Sept blouse one day while shopping at Neiman’s, but left without buying it. I later spotted it on Shopbop and just could not resist. The detailing is gorgeous and the fit is just SO fun. I mean, these sleeves!!

I chose to belt it (obviously! But hey, did you guys see how many actresses belted their gowns at the Oscars? LOVE!!!) to give it more shape, but I will admit this top looks fab as is too! The white pearls on my Gucci belt just popped so fabulously with this top, I couldn’t not add it on (sorry if you are getting sick of seeing this belt….I swear it just goes with everything and also makes every look just way more fun!)

For denim, I wanted a pair that was a bit distressed and edgier since the top is so over the top girly, so I went with these from Paige. As if I need to remind you guys how much I swear by this denim line, but honestly these are probably my most favorite pair. They are regular rise, distressed at the knees and then are cropped perfectly. I love that I can wear them daytime with a wedge or flat, but that they are just as fun for night with a heel.

For bag I needed some sort of color, so I went with my red Celine nano. I have such a hard time keeping looks totally monochromatic, I just love a little fun! For shoes, I am so Spring ready, so I went with these end all wedges from Chloe. I have these from last year in tan, so I was so excited to see they are doing again this season in a few colors. It does not get any comfier than these!! These from Marc Fisher are a great lower priced option. I threw on this Iro leather jacket for fun too, just to show a fun way to layer (since it’s 100% still Winter here!)

Here are all the aspects of my look:

If you are ever in a hunch about what to wear, I can assure this combo is a winner. You can keep it so simple with just the top + denim, or you can mix it up a bit like I did with a fun belt & pop of color with an accessory. Here are a bunch of other great white tops I am loving:
Wishing you all a fab day today! I have a charity event tonight at Pelican Hill that I am looking forward to. Happy shopping and happy Tuesday!

xo, Caro

    Your style is amazing! Quick question. What size do you get your Gucci belts in? Do you have any advice for getting the right size?
