Spring Closet Staple: Chiffon Blouse

Hello spring time!! Although the weather is struggling with the adjustment, my closet and I are more than ready to welcome in the new season!

One of my favorite trends lately has been the chiffon blouses. Not only can they be worn for both formal and casual occasions, but these light weight tops can be worn all year round! Under a blazer or cardigan, a chiffon blouse does well in the fall and winter, but in the spring and summer these sheer tops are perfect on top of a cami or tank. Here in the casual office we get to wear whatever we want. Today I chose to celebrate spring with one of my favorite tops, a tan chiffon blouse from TJMaxx (possibly my favorite store in the whole world).

Since the weather hasn’t fully accepted the new season, jeans are still a necessity. Soon the shorts and skirts will come out!! But until then I will probably wear these skinny jeans multiple times a week. I’m addicted. My favorite pair of jeans in I don’t know how long. I found them at Ross, where gems are found. They are from Guess and officially my favorite. (Since I found them at Ross I don’t know how long it has been since Guess actually carried these exact jeans. Here is a pair as close and I could find)

I use to be a hard core Lucky Brand follower. I still love my Lola jeans from Lucky, and always will, but Guess has won my heart over in one fell swoop. Well done Guess, well done.

A little ruffle is nearly always a good thing : ) I find it to be a great way to add some movement and texture to an outfit.IMG_3109The color is darker because it is far away, but my shoes (Steve Madden platform pumps from DSW similar) are the same purple as my necklace (A gift from my friend Rachel that she got while spending a summer in Ecuador!).

Aside from GOLD and white, purple is my favorite color.

Chiffon blouses can be found all over the place, but I have found the most inexpensive ones at TJMaxx and the clearance racks of Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. Also, since the blouses are generally designed to be loose it is okay to buy a size larger than you normally would which provides more options for you while searching through an overwhelming clearance rack.

If you have a chiffon blouse I would LOVE to see a picture of it and maybe post it here?? : ) Or maybe on the Facebook page. If you have one please send it my way!
