Begonias and marigolds










This pretty pocket blouse from the Loft is the perfect color for pairing with any staple bottom - it goes with navy, cocoa, and black slacks or skirts. The airy-ness of the fabric combined with the simple straight cut of the shirt somehow doesn't make me look boxy, making this one of my favorite wardrobe items. I layered the top with a sparkly black cardigan from the Gap that has proved season-versatile as sparkles just won't drop off of the shelves.

Cardigan: The Gap; Blouse: Ann Taylor Loft; Slacks: The Limited; Belt: H&M; Shoes: JC Penney; Pearl Necklace: bought at a maritime museum while travelling
