I've mentioned before that one of the things that I think all women should have in their closet is a patterned, go-to silk shirt. This is one of those items that can be worn just as easily under a suit with heels as it can with a pair of torn up jeans and flats on the weekend. Unlike a t-shirt, a silk (or polyblend) shirt is one of those items that will really last season after season and you don't have to worry about stretching or those dreaded holes that always appear around the waistband of your favorite shirt.
I found this leopard blouse last season and week after week I find myself reaching for it in my closet. I recently threw it on for a girl's night out with skinny jeans and heels and one can never underestimate how great it is to have an outfit that looks great with absolutely zero thought put into it. When I want to dress it up a little for an event or meeting I pair the blouse with my beloved wide leg pants in what I like to call the "new" power outfit. Where a suit can sometimes feel feel stuffy or dated, this look feels fresh and young while still maintaining a professional edge. With my trusty clutch and belt that I've had for almost a decade and this outfit says I mean business but will also happily meet you at the bar after!
One look that can easily take you from day to night... that's definitely what I call power! xx
