Happy Tuesday. Today I’m sharing two ways I styled a paintbox-colored blouse that’s also a floral print. Quite a shift for me but it’s so pretty that I couldn’t resist. Floral blouse outfits are outside my wheelhouse but I sure love this one.
As always, you can click the red text for more info and to shop the item.
The colors in this blouse are bright and cheery but have a soft impressionistic feel with their watercolor brushstroke print. It has bracelet sleeves with a turnback cuff and collar. I looked this up on the Nic+Zoe site and they say it’s made from recycled fabric..yay! It’s sized XS-XXL. I’m wearing a small think the medium would be better for my broad shoulders.
My high-rise slim jeans are from Banana Republic (I’m loving their things these days) and are a true ankle jean. They’re a cotton blend that also includes some recycled cotton and recycled polyester plus elasterrell and lycra. They come in short, regular, and tall sizes 24-35. I am wearing a 29.
Being a denim lover through and through, I couldn’t resist topping it with my favorite jean jacket, similar here. When I wear a denim jacket or blazer, I like to wear the blouse collar on top of the jacket, then when I pop the jacket collar, the blouse collar gets the boost too:)

I pulled out my larger pearls that I’ve owned forever. I always save them for dressier occasions but decided if not now, when? Why not wear them with jeans?
For a dressier look, I swapped out the jacket, jeans, and booties.
This simple, unlined coat is a soft heathered blue with a single button, double-breasted style. It’s available in sizes 6-16, I am wearing an 8 so I could layer a sweater underneath if I wanted. The pants are almost sold out. They’re the popular Nic+Zoe Wonderstretch straight leg pant that comes in 4 colors, in petite and regular.
My Birdies Starling slippers get a ton of wear in this plain black velvet, but just spotted these with crystal embellishment which would be so fun all through the holidays! They’re wide and cushiony so don’t push on my bunion which is always a plus. I also own them in this leopard print.
Here are some other floral blouses that caught my eye-
I’ve discovered that not all floral blouses remind me of wallpaper and many are lovely! What are your favorite prints?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
