Updating Your Key Wardrobe Pieces - Part III

Today's wardrobe piece we'll update is the white button-up blouse.

Floral Pencil Skirt
Take your plain blouse from blah to yeah with a floral pencil skirt. If this is too springlike for you, add some black opaque tights and boots. (H&M $29.95)

Pastel Blazer
Ditch the usual black blazer in favour for a pastel blazer. You are always pretty in pink! (Forever 21 $29.80)

Minaudière
 The small bag of the moment looks smashing with your plain blouse. Extra points for snakeskin. For those who don't know what a minaudière is, it's a jewelry case used as an evening bag with compartments, which allows storage for several items in a small space, such as a makeup compact, lipstick, watch, reading glasses, or keys. (eBay: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Taupe-Box-Case-Snake-Skin-Pattern-Evening-Clutch-Party-Pause-Snap-Bag-NEW-/120814051001?pt=US_CSA_WH_Handbags&hash=item1c21141eb9 $33.37 CDN including shipping)

Hair Jewelry
 For day wear a thin leather hairband and for night tuck a sparkly brooch behind your ear. (Clare's $5.00)

Bright Cardigan
Bright colours are a big trend right now and still will be a big thing for spring. Two must have colours are cobalt blue and tangerine. (Old Navy $29.94)

Methinks it's time for a little shopping! See ya!
