Double Duty

June 1, 2015

Blouses like this black and white one (only $17!) that can do double duty as work and weekend wear are closet must-haves for me. I wear them constantly and thus am always on the lookout for pieces like them. I have them in all forms: long sleeve, short sleeve, and tank tops. I pair them with skirts, trousers, skinny jeans, and shorts. I layer them with blazers, under sweaters, and wear them alone. I love ones like this that are basic (white) but have fun detail like this black piping, because the milage I can get out of them is even greater. What are your double duty wardrobe pieces?

I just snagged these distressed black boyfriend shorts from Gap on a recent sale, and I am loving them! They will definitely be a summer staple (I sized down).

    You always look so elegant, even in casual items! Love the blouse and the shorts, a great alternative to the usual blue denim!

    That top was at a stealer price and it is so chic. I also really like your distressed black shorts, I bet those go with a lot of items in your closet… I need a pair!

    Really a great top. I love items that can do many duties. The shoes are fab as well, I like the thicker contrast sole.
