So when I found this gem of a blouse on sale at Banana Republic (while shopping for fall clothing I might add) I was like YES I need. Okay Marie really? You’re shopping for fall stuff and you want to buy a navy and white striped blouse that screams summer? Good job. Usually I have my best friend Alex to be my shopping voice of reason, but this time I had to do it myself.

Except I’m terrible at it. So naturally I bought it.
“I WILL make this work for fall” I thought as the sales associate wrapped up my purchase and handed me the bag. ” I mean it is long sleeved after all.” Okay let’s do this thing!
So true to form I added white pants (I swear I do actually wear other things) a stylish pair of leather boots, and a fun neon green scarf to ease this blouse into the fall season. I think that I did a pretty good job if you ask me! What do you think?

Have you followed me on Snap Chat yet? (mariepbd) Come join the party! I’m pretty weird and entertaining if I do say so myself.
