This is a story about a shirt I almost didn’t buy.
I was recently shopping at one of my favorite casual stores in the States when I saw this pinstripe blouse. It struck me as a bit masculine, and the fact that I have numerous blouses already that I don’t wear, made me put it aside. The thing with button shirts is that most of the times they are formal, tight fitting, and not at all comfy. A little encouragement from my hubby made me try it on and still didn’t like it, but I thought I might as well buy it because of the smooth fabric.
Today it is my go to shirt for formal and informal occasions. The subdued color allows for wearing multiple times with different styling. Its loose fit doesn’t restrict my movement and doesn’t bother me in warm weather. My only regret is that I didn’t buy more in different colors!
My advice is, look for a simple blouse with neutral colors and let it be a staple in your wardrobe, its versatility will save you from many ‘I don’t know what to wear’ moments!
