violet & burgundy

Since purchasing these over-the-knee boots in the spring, it has been my mission to find pieces to wear with them. I have found a few blouses and sweaters that I have been wearing with them, but this floral blouse might be my favorite yet. Today, I am sharing with you a look I wore Saturday night while we were in Pittsburgh for the Steelers game.

I first spotted this silk floral blouse in J.Crew’s new arrivals email two weeks ago and knew I had to have it. I have a few silk blouses from last year and I wore them a ton — they are easy to wear by themselves or even under a vest, and the colors are always such vibrant shades. It was between this floral blouse and the leopard {I know, right?!} and the only reason I bought the floral and not the leopard was because the floral was included in the new arrival sale and the leopard was not! Although, after receiving this floral number in the mail, I couldn’t be more happy that I was being frugal that day! The colors are even more gorgeous in person and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it — pairing it with jeans for a more casual look and styling it with a skirt for a more dressed up outfit. I will say that in last year’s silk shirts, I ordered my regular size and the fit was perfect. With this one, I was slightly concerned with the length and decided to size up. It was definitely the right call because it did seem to be a little short.
