Happy Monday, everyone! If you’ve been following along on my NYFW adventures, you know that I definitely couldn’t wear this outfit in New York City at the moment. SO MUCH SNOW. Just looking at this outfit makes me crave the warm LA sunshine (forever a Cali girl). I got this blouse (similar here) a while ago and I couldn’t wait to style it.

The exaggerated sleeves on this blouse with my embroidered initials really made me feel like I had a power blouse. There were just so many outfit options! Since a white blouse is always an instant classic, I could do something simple like pair it with some jeans and some killer heels or I could layer it under a dress to add some dimension. But when I saw this skirt (similar here) and knew it was the winner! I loved the deep red-almost-purple wine color and how chic the blouse looked when tucked into it!

I threw on my red suede boots (like these) and my wine colored bag to round out the look and really let the blouse be the statement piece.

Would you rock exaggerated sleeves like this? Let me know down below and check back on the blog today at 2 p.m. PST to read about Chloe’s favorite educational toys!
