I debated whether or not I should even write this post. It seems strange to be talking about blouses for spring while there is so much sadness in the world right now. And most of us aren’t leaving the house for the foreseeable future. It still feels weird to even write that. At the same time, many of us are still working (from home) and/or just craving some sense of normalcy. For some of us that means putting makeup on in the morning, for others it means getting dressed for the day or doing a workout. Whatever your “normal” is, allow yourself to do the things that give you that feeling, however simple that is. I’d love to know what those things are for you too, let me know in the comments, and tell me how you’re doing.
A friend and I were chatting over the weekend about how we’re processing things right now, and I put it into three categories: optimism, escapism, and realism. I think many of us go through different phases of this regularly, and that’s ok. We all need to feel things differently and process them in a way that helps us survive what is a completely unprecedented moment in time.
So today, I want to talk about blouses for spring because that makes me happy, and I could use a little optimism and escapism today. Looking forward to the days I can get dressed and take Marin for a walk around town, pop into some of my favorite shops and grab a coffee. I might even switch out my wardrobe this week and put away my winter clothes for good. The sun is shining today and it’s going to be in the 60s. I’m going to put on one of my favorite spring blouses and take Marin outside for a little lunch date on our porch. That is certainly a gift.
My Favorite Blouses for Spring
I love a good classic button down. The linen button down I got from Solid & Striped pictured above is so nice for spring and summer. I’m wearing it now with jeans and will most certainly be wearing it with my favorite denim shorts and as a coverup at the beach. The tortoise buttons are such a chic touch. I have it in a small.
This striped button down from Sezane is made with 100% organic cotton and it’s such a great wardrobe staple. I have it in a US size 2 which fits true to size, not too tight not too loose. It looks great with a blazer and white chinos or boyfriend jeans.
I love the feminine details on this short sleeve button down from & Other Stories. I’m a sucker for anything with eyelet and embroidery and I especially love the frilly collar.
I got this shirt last year for our trip to Florida and it’s still one of my all time favorites (I also have it in the striped version). It’s lightweight, soft and breezy. I have it in a small and recommend going a size up for a slightly drapey fit. The perfect style to get you in the spirit for summer.
If polka dots are more your speed this v neck blouse from Reformation is a super cute style for spring. With a button front and 3/4 puff sleeves it’s perfect to dress up or wear casual with jeans.
I just got this organic linen top and it’s incredibly versatile for spring and summer. I’ll be wearing it with jeans or my favorite chinos. It runs big so size down at least one size (I have xxs).
This fun springy blouse also comes in white and has shirred puff sleeves with embroidery detail. I love that you can dress this one up or down.
