Today's Outfit: Ready, Set, Colour

Lovely reader Petite Adventures left a comment on yesterday's post asking for more details about the blouse I wore to the CB2 grand opening party. This made me unusually happy because 1) I was planning an outfit post anyway, and 2) it made forcing poor bystanders Alicia and Danica to take outfit photos somewhat justifiable. (Thanks ladies!)

The blouse is from my last trip to Portland. As much as I love the textured blue-and-gold silk, the ruffled sleeves and the colourful pattern, I don't wear it that often. The exaggerated sleeve ruffles make it hard to wear with any sort of cardigan or blazer, and I get cold so easily that I usually need an outer layer with long sleeves to keep me toasty. An extra nude camisole and a pair of wool trousers seemed pretty effective at preventing the shivers though.

This outfit was a nod to spring with my feet firmly planted in the final months of winter--bright spring-like colours, but also quite warm. Pretty good compromise for these final transitional months, I think.


  1. I'm kicking myself for having missed this, looks like you all had such a great time! And that blouse looks amazing, but nothing beats how at home your Kate Spade looks with the decor. It has found a new home obviously :)
