workwear wednesday: neutrals

Hi friends. Today I wanted to share with you my newly thrifted Halogen blouse and Old Navy polka dot cardigan that I picked up at Salvation Army over the weekend. Obviously one of my favorite things about thrift shopping is finding NEW clothes for a fraction of the price. This blouse, for example, was new with the tags still attacked – from Nordstrom – where this shirt cost a whopping $69. I only paid $5 for it. Win.

And a bit about neutrals. For the longest time I was dead set against neutral colors for clothes. Why? Because I thought they were a) boring and b) did not work with my skin color and clashed terribly. Recently, I found out how pairing neutrals with a pop of color (or not) can actually enhance my appearance instead of detracting from it. Now I love neutrals.

And another thing: These new styles of blouses that have a longer butt flap to cover your bottom – I am kinda liking it. workwear wednesday neutrals - halogen tie blouse, NYDJ leggings from ThredUp, Bernie Mev mary janes, Old navy polka dot cardigan workwear wednesday neutrals - halogen tie blouse, NYDJ leggings from ThredUp, Bernie Mev mary janes, Old navy polka dot cardigan

  1. Girlllll you look great in neutrals! I love a nice butt flap ๐Ÿ™‚ I seriously love the blouse, and I agree, it’s the best feeling ever to find something new at a thrift store price! I still think it’s hilarious we both picked tie front blouses without planning it!!! Great minds ๐Ÿ™‚ Really like the shoes, too!

  2. So cute!! I love this whole look, especially that top – it is perfect with those jeans! I have a pair of gray jeans that I often get stuck trying to figure what to wear with them – but I love the idea of a patterned top with gray in it! ๐Ÿ™‚
