Bag Lady.

This silk blouse makes me smile every time I wear it. Thrifting is the best way to find silk tops for unbelievable prices and the print on this one makes it an absolute gem. I'm really into wearing shirts like this all the way buttoned up, emphasizing the prim collar. When I was little, wearing shirts buttoned up was something I avoided at all costs...funny how things change! 
These photos are from a day spent in downtown Montrose, where they have the cutest boutiques and restaurants, including a vintage toy store.

I am on a mission for some new silk blouses.... and this one is adorable-- the key though is your styling of it. You kept it both youthful and fun....

The Key To Chic said...

Awesome find! I adore the fun print. I'm such a big fan of thrifting, because you never know what you may find.

I've always loved button ups as a kid but now I avoid them! It is funny how things change! I love your boots, they are a great colour and I like how they are a little mis matched! xx

What a crazy print - love it! Particularly love the fact that someone designed that in all seriousness first time round.

Kat said...

That top was a great find and I love the quirky (in a good way!) print. I'm loving the buttoned-up, prim-and-proper style these days too but was disappointed to see how many shirts I own weren't actually designed to be buttoned all the way up! You have a great collection of shorts too.
