Eyelet Black Blouse


I picked up this pretty black eyelet blouse the other day at Madewell. I tried it on in a golden yellow shade that I wanted desperately to work but that color makes me look like I’m sick with the flu or something.

The tone doesn’t do anything for my skin color!

So I went with trusty black which means I can wear it to meetings or for workdays, or even for date night. I think it would be cute with black skinny jeans and nude pumps for a date night look!

Styling notes: the blouse does have a tie on the side as well as a tiny discrete button along the center of the neckline. It requires a cami underneath and I’m wearing a nude colored one. It’s nursing friendly too.

    Yellow does the same thing to me. So disappointing because yellow is such a cheery color.

    So I’m one of those who still wears Micky Mouse t-shirts and baggy jeans because I have absolutely no idea how to dress. “Fashion” blogs freak me out (OMG ankle skinnies + half-tucked cashmere + fancy leather belt + cool jacket + heels + sunglasses AND you want MORE accessories AND it’s called “simple”?!) so this is so nice and refreshing to see simple jeans and a plain top. It feels doable for me. Thank you, on behalf of all of us basic-istas! 🙂

    You either love eyelet, or you’re wrong.

    That’s so cute! I like how you styled it more casually, but it also has the potential to be a bit more chic and fancy.

    Madewell tops are really strange for me. Like, that one looks way too short in the torso and if you zoom in seems like it collects lint and hair and stuff. I’m all Madewell all day with their jeans, but their tops are kind of meh for me. But totally cute on you!
