Catty (See Jane Wear)

Zara sweater, Gianetta blouse c/o, J Brand jeans, Forever 21 necklace, Enzo Angiolini boots, Elizabeth James sunglasses, Chloe bag
I've never been a huge fan of silky, button-down shirts until the past year or so.  Although I wear them quite often, I still have a bit of a complex about them because I think they make me look a little too boyish.  I've gotten over my insecurity simply because of how versatile they've proven to be--tucked into a skirt, under sweaters, or worn as a tunic over jeans, just to name a few ways.  Plus, when a blouse has a leopard print like this one, it's impossible to feel like a pre-pubescent boy when wearing it.


So, how was your weekend?

  1. This is my favorite combo for fall right now! I keep pairing all of my sheer blouses with a chunkier knit.. such a great way to transition! Happy Monday!
     PIECE OF CAKE. PEACE OF MIND.

  18. The boots are great! They complete the look perfectly and the punch of sparkle with the necklace makes it more feminine.

  21. LOVE THIS!! I'm always a sucker for the classic sweater-over-the-button-down look, but this is a great twist on it with the leopard!

  22. There is nothing boyish about this! I've never ever thought you look boyish when wearing button down shirts-- you're way to feminine looking. And you have an elegance that boys just don't have :)

  23. I love that fun print blouse! Really cute, especially with the sweater layered over it.

  27. Ooh, Anna I LOVE this outfit! It's funny that loose button downs make you feel like a boy, I find they make me feel like an awkward business lady! Though at the same time, I do love them! The leopard is gorgeous, and I am SO in love with your sunglasses! They are perfection! xo!
