Blouse Hoarder

Confession I have a thing for blouses.  They are probably my favorite clothing item to buy.  Ask any of my friends who have peeked in my closet and they will tell you they are shocked at how many I own.  Here is a sneak peek in my closet.....
The whole top row is pretty much filled with blouses.



Since I love blouses so much and you know I will be adding some new ones to my wardrobe for fall. I thought I would share my top blouse picks for this fall.

This blouse is python, enough said.  It is perfect in my book.


I am obsessed with this blouse.  I own one and I want it in every color.  It is the perfect blouse with skinny jeans.  Since it is solid it is great to dress up with fun necklaces.


I am obsessed with this blouse.  I love the Cabernet and Burnished Rose colors for fall.  JCrew always makes the best blouses.

Everybody needs a tie front blouse in their wardrobe.  It is great for professional things but also looks just as chic with skinny jeans for casual wear.  I love the pattern on this one and it is a steal at less than $100.


I am dying to add a Peplum top to my wardrobe and I think this is the perfect one.  It is a great price and I always love all my Madewell pieces.  It comes in ivory and pink, both would be fab for fall.  Another great piece that could be worn for work or play.  This would look so cute under a blazer.

I love this top.  I so wish I had bought the dress version awhile back.  This is on my fall wishlist.  Not cheap but such a cool blouse.

This is such a great classic blouse to have in your closet.  It looks good with shorts, jeans, skirts, you name it.  I own it in pink and wear it all the time. A great blouse that you can dress up or down.  I am loving the green or navy for fall.  It is also under $100.

The Equipment blouse in unreal!

Dominique DeLaney said...

I love blouses too...between blouses and dresses I have a MAJOR problem! I feel a closet clean-out is in my near future!! I am loving all your picks for fall though! Buyer beware of the J.Crew burnished rose color-I order the blythe top in that color and it's not so pretty in person. It's like a weird nude...idk maybe it's just me! But just a heads up.

erica said...

Oh my goodness I want your blouse collection it's absolutely fabulous! xo

Georgine said...

You have completely converted me into a blouse lover!! They are so awesome and such a great alternative now that I've "grown" out of tight tops from my early 20's ;) I am seriously tempted by the J.Crew and Joie options. XOXO

Portuguese Prepster said...

LOVE all your picks! I too am a blouse hoarder along with oxfords. You can just throw either on with skinny jeans and be done!

I'm obsessed with blouses too. I love JCrew blouses the best! I have 3 peplum tops and I love them. I want to find a peplum sweater...

Love these! I tried on the Joie one in Neimans while in Charlotte last weekend. REALLY tempted, but I think I'm going to just wait for the next Piperlime sale to make the plunge.

I think I could spend hours in your closet. LOVING all of your beautiful blouses.

I was at the Tibi outlet in St. Simons a few weeks ago and I'm almost positivethey had that tie-back blouse in stock. I can't remember the price, but it was well under retail. You should give them a call!

Tess said...

i totally hear you on the hoarder status, though mine is for dresses...it's a sickness really. at least your style is classic so you can wear them season after season ;)

I'm really of the opinion that you can never have too many blouses (c: And I also am of the opinion that your closet looks *very* close to my version of nirvana (c: I think I might need to sell off something big and buy that J crew short sleeve number in the bordeaux color, fall perfection!!!

Pris said...
