Victorian Casual | Lace Blouse and Black Blazer

Hello beautiful readers!
Today I'll be wrapping up my month-long professional outfit series with my favorite look of them all:



I got this top at soyfashion.com two years ago. It only came in one size and i was disappointed to find it was slightly too big and too long. Lucky for this blouse, I don't give up on clothes that easily - I tucked it into my jeans to create a more fitted look. To tone down the Victorian lace details and create a more formal vibe, I added my fitted blazer. Voila - an outfit perfect for a casual day in the office before Thanksgiving! :]




Sorry for the super short post. I've been busy trying to get work done before Thanksgiving. Also, don't let the smile in the photos above fool you - it was 32 degrees fahrenheit (0 degrees celsius) when these pictures were taken! Couldn't bear to be outside for too long :/

Top: Soyfashion.com top, H&M blazer
Bottoms: Delia's jeans
Accessories: vintage Prada bag, rose necklace from boutique in Spain, Lefties belt
Shoes: Nine West loafers

  2. Such a cute outfit! I love that beautiful rose necklace. 32 degrees is so cold!! I'm already whining about the cold and it's only about 45 degrees where I live.

    Now following your blog, I love it! :)

  4. Love this look! I really like the little details with the belt and necklace. I don't know how you managed to keep you composure for the pictures with the cold weather! It isn't even that cold here yet in Charleston but I'm already being such a baby with these cooler temps!

  6. I love this high-neck blouse, and what makes it even more interesting are the details that you added to make it feel more victorian (cameo necklace, rose filigree belt)! This has to be one of my favorite professional outfits; the neckline just elevates the entire look.

  29. I know what you mean, weather here in Latvia has been getting really cold as well, the the temperature tends to slip under 0C & it is hard to take outdoor photos!
    I like your outfit a lot, the blouse must be my favorite piece as it looks so beautiful and timeless! I like how you paired it with that jacket- looks really nice together! :)

  36. OOh, I totally get why this is your favorite look, I love it! You made that top work perfectly for you because it seems like it fits you like a glove. I love the high collar with the blazer. So chic. And that pendant necklace. It pairs so well with the Victorian style top. This is such a sophisticated chic outfit. : )
