Silk two-pocket blouse by J.Crew Factory + floral


Silk two-pocket blouse in royal violet:  J.Crew Factory, other colors here
Floral skirt by Yoana Baraschi: Anthropologie, 2009
Heels:  Tahari, DSW
Monogram necklace:  The Pink Box (local boutique)
It's been a rough week!  My husband has been out of town, work has been really busy, I had to bake cupcakes for my son's class (every working mom's nightmare, right?) ...I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday! 

I have been totally hooked on J.Crew Factory lately.  The quality has vastly improved and I just love everything in there right now!  Plus the prices are so much more affordable than retail.  I bought this silk blouse on clearance at the Factory on a whim and I have already found so much in my closet to go with it.  It was less than $40 and it's identical to the retail version of the Blythe blouse.  Love a good bargain!  The skirt is old but still a favorite.  I really love items that last and look good season after season.

Do you have a monogram necklace?  They're so fun.  I am late on the trend but a local boutique custom orders them for a decent price so I finally bit.  I should have gotten a close-up, I will next time I wear it.  It came in a few days ago and I can't stop wearing it! 

I just proof-read this post and  I apologize for how utterly boring it is!  My brain is mush from this week.  Thanks for reading, and hope you didn't fall asleep! :)

  1. That blue is a ravishing color on you! I've been curious about the Factory silk blouses but haven't been brave enough to bite yet. It's good to hear that the quality is up there with the full price version.

  2. Totally agree about Factory quality. And about the cupcakes (I actually like to bake but only in low-pressure environments, cupcakes for class are one of those things it would be really bad to screw up).

    Girl, you need a drink! Tell your hub he's on duty when he gets back and head out for a girls night.

  3. I think you look fabulous and well done on the cupcakes! I always wanted to just go buy the darn things, but of course the kids wanted to make them and so we always did! I don't have a monogram necklace! do take a closeup - would love to see this one!

    1. Thanks so much! You are so right, the kids like it so much more for a mom to bake rather than buy! I don't do it often but for their birthdays I will!

  6. I love the violet-blue colour of your blouse - it looks fantastic. Glad to hear the quality is good too.

    p.s. speaking of quality, I totally agree that the style and quality of clothes are starting to slip on Mad Men, being it is the late 60s now. Just wait until Harry wears a polyester suit to work...ick! lol
