THE Best White Blouse Ever, I Promise

There’s nothing I love more than a good white blouse. It can be one of the most versatile pieces in your closet.

The second I saw this one from Express {y’all know I LOVE Express – shoprunner ftw}, I knew it had to be mine because it has everything I could possibly want in a white blouse. It’s legit all that and more.

Now I know you’re thinking okay, why are you so shook by this white blouse in particular?

Well – let me tell you:

For starters, it has the puff sleeve, strong 80’s power shoulder. YES.

The colour is perfect – it’s not TOO white or not too OFF white, does this make sense?

The fit is totally relaxed and easy to wear over leggings {esp leather!} or tucked into jeans or slacks. It’s totally work appropriate, btw, but flirty enough to take from the desk to drinks.

and my favourite part?? THE SLEEVES

OMG. THESE SLEEVES ARE SO GOOD AND WHAT SOLD ME.

The cuffs button up to mid arm and are super chic to wear buttoned OR UNBUTTONED.

Such a fun detail that really adds to the outfit, you know?

….& of course, if you’re a shoprunner member, you get this to your door in 2 days. SCORE.

I’m wearing it here with pants that deserve their own post, the STONE PANT from Reformation. I was recently at their grand opening in San Francisco last week and came back with these they were so good. They are slimming, super flattering, and soooo comfortable. The second I tried these on, I knew they were coming home with me.

To spice up the black and white look, I paired these with my rose gold boots {I call them my space boots}. They are from Forever 21 over a year ago so they are long gone but here are some similar {i actually like these better}. Of course, you can keep it classic with black pumps.

& of course, this look would be hella dope with some white kicks! 😉

Finally, topped it with one of my many pairs of Matrix-esque sunglasses. I am digging the whole Matrix vibe so much and might or might not be looking for the perfect black vinyl or leather Matrix trench coat if you have any reccs…

I’d also rock this with some snap away pants like these with the bottom halves unsnapped + some heels + & unbutton the sleeves. YES.

Anyways this blouse is rocking my world in a MAJOR way so I had to share – not to mention, the price is right… only $49.99 for a blouse you’ll wear all the damn time AND it comes in black. I am wearing it in Soft Ivory.

PS – the blouse is a bit sheer so I do recc a good nude bra. I really love Harper Wilde. See me in their bra here & use my discount code silver15 for 15% off! They are legit my favourite bras right now. Buy here.

Happy Tuesday! Are you as shook about a white blouse as I am? If so, let me know your favourites – would love to add to my collection! Also any fun ways to style, send it my way so I can give it a go.

Got a fun recipe coming your way tomorrow 😉

  • OMG OK IF YOU GO ANYWHERE IN AUSTIN FOR A GLASS GO HERE {ESP THIS MONTH}: @junesallday 💘
🌸
Here’s why: For November, they are celebrating Japan and it’s so dope. The drink menu is styled like a manga comic, & they have some of the coolest sakes I’ve ever had. Even though I’m just drinking wine here {@royaltokaji the oddity dry furmint if we’re being a specific, #hipster I know - dope winelist, you will love, get something craycray}, but after this glass I had this one sake that blew me away... you might have seen it in my stories: basically “rosé sake” and it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever drank... and I’ve drank lots of things in this life of mine lol 😇
🌸
Anyways, it was called AMABUKI GIN NO KIRENAI JUNMAI • @amabukishuzo_official. In the glass, it was PINK, and tasted slightly sweet & fruity. It got its colour from using ancient black rice. If you see this, you have to get it and shoot me a DM while you’re at it so I can have some sake fomo 😅🍶✨
