This year the traditional work appropriate blouse got a make over. Between new cuts and colors/patterns to the addition of studs and lace, blouses have become a must have in any closet. Simply pair it up with your favorite skirt or a nice pair of jeans. We have seen this all winter, and I'm glad it's continuing into summer. Above are a few of the ones I have my eye on. 

Last week I got this blouse at Forever 21 and I couldn't wait to wear it. The color is one of my favorites and I'm obsessed with the lace collar. I originally planned on not wearing a blazer and pairing it with a skirt but I'm a little under the weather so jeans and a blazer it was.
