Something Borrowed: Floral Silk Blouse and Flouncy Skirt

Lately, I've been on the hunt for silk blouses.  They're a lot more feminine and pretty than the usual button down dress shirts I wear to the office and can easily be dressed up or down for the weekend with the right skirt and accessories.




Vintage Silk Blouse and Gold Necklaces - Both Borrowed from Mom, Forever 21 Skirt (similar here) and Bracelets, Gina Tricot Ring, Jessica Simpson Shoes (similar here and here), Michael Kors Sunglasses, Chanel Purse

*****

I borrowed this pretty silk blouse and these gold necklaces from my mom's closet during a weekend trip back to visit my family in Texas last month.  For a casual weekend outfit, I've paired them with a flouncy black skirt, gold heels, my favorite Chanel 2.55 classic flap purse (a semi-recent splurge from earlier this year), a ring I bought during my recent trip to Germany, and matching bangle bracelets.  

Do you also like borrowing from Mom's closet?

  29. How gloriously girly is this look? ...which pretty much describes the rest of your looks, haha. :) I definitely find myself taking a bunch of things from my mother's closet, and thus that comprises about 80% of my vintage finds. Digging your blouse and that classic Chanel bag!
