This look sort of defies my own set of unspoken rules about wearing tailored pieces; I usually like to pair something tailored with something loose, flowing, or distressed. I feel like it breaks-up the severity of the look and injects a little fun into it.

However, today I just felt like something a little different. I had been thinking about this Tibi blouse that I've had for a while, and wondered if it would work under a jacket. It's a very structured-looking top (even though its really lightweight silk),  so pairing it with a jacket seemed somehow a bit risky…a bit….I don't know masculine. Man-ish. Whatever. Not that the whole borrowed from the boys thing is bad, it's just not my comfort zone.

As it turns out, I like the overall effect. It's no fuss, will go just about anywhere, and with the flat Chelsea boots, it's a really easy look to get around in. If I'm honest, I probably still prefer my usual mix of shapes and textures, but for a more low key day or even a work-related affair, it's nice to know this look is there if I need it.

  1. Love the jacket - it's a little moody and fabulous. xo


  2. I like the look. I have kept all my old Amani jackets. They never seem to go out of style.

  3. Hi Kristin, this is a favourite look of mine and one that suits you very much I think. There's something so very sexy about the curves of a woman dressed in manly clothes. The masculine nature of the look just accentuates your femininity. I love it. The boots are fab - I have a brown pair of these just waiting to be shown on my blog, love 'em!

  5. The blue collar with jeans, love it! Add the black from the jacket and the birds and I'm all in - gorgeous outfit!
