elle lauri pearl collar blouse

As I am anxiously awaiting spring weather, I find I am reaching for the transitional basics in my closet to hold me over until we get some warmer weather.   I love the pearl details on the collar of this blouse and with the sheer fabric, I can wear this well into May (in New York).

As you can see, these two-tone boots are still a favorite of mine. It is amazing how a good shoe can change the entire outfit.

Can we talk about this bag?!  I had been eying the full size for so long, but I am glad I finally decided on the medium.  It is the perfect size for every day use without being too heavy.  I’m kind of obsessed.

I paired the sweet pearl details of the blouse with a little edgier accessories to mix things up.  The blouse looks more sheer in the pictures than it is in person, but you can always layer a cami to make it more work appropriate.
