What I Wore: Here and There

In news that will surprise no one, I bought this blouse because I fell in love with its print. Florals. Of course. This particular iteration reminds me of the painting on Russian matrioshkas, which remind me of my late grandmother, which makes this a more sentimental attachment than usual. Yet, I’m torn, because I’m actually not sold on the fit of this blouse on me, specifically in the arms. The sleeves are rather puffy. My arms … don’t need help in that direction. But, oh, the print! Indecision time. I think I’ll give it time to grow on me (it is a summer top, after all), but we may have our first contender for next year’s clothing swap. Already. Let’s chalk it up to the risks of buying clothes online, on impulse.

What else? I almost forgot my necklace, probably because it blends a little too well with the blouse. I think I want something similar but with a more modern/edgy vibe and a longer chain. Suggestions, hive mind?
