Comfy Colorblocking

Happy Friday, everyone!!!

Today, I paired my ivory colorblocked blouse with black pants and a purple blazer for a comfortable Friday work look.

Blouse:  New York & Company (Available here)
Pants:  The Limited (Available here)
Blazer: The Limited (Similar here)
Flats:  Target

While I like today’s look, this look is an example of how the wrong fit or proportion can throw off an otherwise great outfit.  This blouse is too long.  I do like slightly longer, tunic-length tops, but they look best on shorter gals when worn with heels to help elongate the leg.

With flats, the blouse has the effect of creating a long torso and proportionately too short legs.  I will be taking this one to the tailor to get the right length.

Purse:  The Limited (Sold out on-line; may be available in stores)
Necklace:  The Limited
Alligator ring:  Target
