Ensemble message:  Well folks, you spoke and I’ve listened!  The comments I generally receive are nice, and nice is, well, nice.  But Tuesday’s post prompted comments like “I think this is my favorite outfit yet!” and “way to bring your style A-game to the office.”  Ok, so you like true office garb with a twist, got it.  Feedback is a gift people, so here I am making use of it!

This outfit uses some tailored pieces to create a laid-back menswear look.  I’ve always had an affinity for blousy button ups – after all, Krystal from This Time Tomorrow is on my style inspiration list!  But I just haven’t experimented with them much.  I saw this blouse on an impromptu thrift store visit last weekend, and for the $4 price tag, I couldn’t pass up the chance to try out the blousy button up look!  What do you guys think?

I also got some feedback from my co-workers today… mainly that I wouldn’t be able to post before I jet into the city tonight for a Devendra Barnhart show (click at your own risk... he's pretty trippy!).  I’m not really sure why this mattered since they saw what I was wearing?  But anyway, I took time out of my lunch break to schedule this post.  Take that ;)
