I’m a huge fan of the Victorian trend—mostly because I like to pretend that I’m the Dowager Countess in her prime, firing off Downton Maggie Smith quotes all day—but also, because Victorian silhouettes are… well, super pretty. As such, when perusing the White House Black Market spring arrivals, this blouse was screaming my name and I knew it would be just the right update to my warm weather work wardrobe.
As for the culottes, you know I’ve hardly met a culotte I didn’t like, but these?! Whew. Adding a suede pair to my collection had me so amped I nearly tackled the UPS delivery guy when he rang the doorbell. Honestly, I was shocked (but, actually) at the crazy good quality and fit of these suckers, and plan to wear them as frequently this Spring as is socially acceptable/hygenic.
Polish it all off with a classic snakeskin pump that is as immediately comfy as it is attractive, and you’ve basically got my Spring essentials in a nutshell. NOM.
