Structured blouses paired with jeans are one of my favorite tricks to looking dressed up while still keeping it casual. I did just that with my new top from Sandro, a brand that has quickly become one of my favorites this season. This black quilted top, in particular, with short sleeves and a round neckline, makes for an easy go-to piece when in need of a basic/classic with a twist. The gathers at the shoulders bring a stylish military-like effect, adding some uniqueness–it is quite the must-have. I’m also quite smitten with my new blue suede pumps, which I purchased in Paris. They’re such a happy shade of blue (royal, I’d say), and is extremely popular for fall. I like them most when paired with jeans or trousers, but they also look great with a LBD, naturally. Royal blue is on my list of favorite colors this season, and I’m happy to incorporate it any time it’s suitable.
