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

    I love a well made blouse. Especially when you get a deal on one like you did. I just love it. It can dressed up or down. But I love how you made this casual for today.
