Blazer, Tweed, and Chiffon Blouse







Last night, I wore this outfit during a casual dinner and library date with my boyfriend, J.  What's special to me about this outfit is where everything came from.  I acquired various pieces of this outfit during several different trips - this pleated, boucle Topshop skirt from my recent trip to London, the ring and chiffon blouse with studded collar from a business trip to Germany, and my shoes from a trip to Taiwan with Mom a few years back.  I also got my beloved Michael Kors 'Karolina' sunglasses during a trip to New York last year.  Wearing this globally acquired outfit makes me happy because it brings back wonderful memories from each trip!

I've layered a black blazer with white trim over the chiffon blouse and added a braided silver bib necklace to further play up the stud details on the collar.  I can never resist adding a pop of color, so I'm also carrying my teal envelope clutch.

*****
What I'm Wearing / Where to Shop:

Topshop Skirt from London
Chiffon Blouse by Only from Germany (similar here)
H&M Blazer (similar here)
BCBGeneration Clutch (another gorgeous pick by Tory burch)
Forever 21 Bib Necklace (another great option
Gina Tricot Ring from Germany
Fashion & Vogue Pumps from Taiwan (another white pump I'm craving with a cap toe)
