Splurge v. Save + What I Wore

Silk blouses are a great staple in any wardrobe. They can be dressed up or down and have a clean and polished look. When it comes to finding the right one the J. Crew Blythe blouse is definitely a winner.

It comes in an array of colors and is moderately priced at $110. Right now you can get select colors on sale for $59.99. 

The Equipment Signature Blouse is another great option, but is on the high-end at $208. Equipment really knows how to use great textiles...so one could be worth the splurge for just the right piece.

But, if you're looking to try out the style and don't want to commit, the Old Navy Roll-Cuff blouse is a great alternative. And as low as $22.50, you really can't go wrong, even if you only wear it for one season. I recently used a 20% coupon to buy two - one in bright nite and the other in minty fresh. Here's how I wore them to work.

Do you have a favorite silk blouse?

P.S. Don't forget you have until the end of the month to save 10% at Serena Italian Imports using the code "fallcardicouture"! 


  1. Two very lovely, smart outfits- and it is great that you are getting so much use out of your wedding shoes!
