Weekend Blouse

Target Merona blouse, Forever 21 denim shorts, key cocktail ring, and mesh clutch, J Crew belt, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Michael Kors wedges (last seen here)

The Forever 21 double finger key cocktail ring I mentioned here.



As I mentioned here, I've recently started converting my work blouses into weekend attire. On Sunday I paired this Target Merona blouse (that I bought five years ago) with my casual cutoff denim shorts from Forever 21 (thanks for the style tips on the cutoffs, Nikki and Carrie). I threw on my Michael Kors gold wedges, my double finger key cocktail ring, and a gold mesh clutch and felt successful in reviving a very old item that I had never worn outside the fluorescent lighting of the office. I've decided that sunlight brightens the mood of this top.
