    There seems to be a disconnect between the “I’m going to a party” blouse and the “I’m going to work” pants. I wouldn’t wear the blouse because that’s not a good color on me and the last thing my broad shoulders need are fluffy puffed sleeves. The pants don’t fit into into my casual lifestyle.

    Just not my style! The fru-fru of the blouse is too out there for me. I am generally not interested in statement blouses, but I don’t think that color would flatter me. I would never wear the two pieces together, but think plain black is a better choice with that blouse. Definitely a no.

    Color and print are nice, but I look silly in puffy sleeves since my shoulders are square. I’m not a fan of that blouse with those pants. They seem too structured for that blouse.

    I have two gifts left to wrap & then I’m ready for Christmas! I did a lot in advance this year because I had a cancer treatment at the end of November and wasn’t sure how that would leave me feeling. As it turns out, I bounced back very quickly. The only problem is that being ready so far in advance, I keep thinking that I must have forgotten to do something really important! lol

    I wouldn’t wear that blouse as I don’t think the puffy shoulders would be flattering on me. I’m not huge in the shoulders, but big enough without adding anything more. Also, I don’t care for a flared crop pant.

    My Home Ec teacher Mrs. Haver would give me a big fat F if I had left those big puffy shoulders! LOL! I remember using so many pins to keep from have any “puff’s” in the shoulder seams. Love the color but I would leave this one on the hanger!

    This combo is a no for me. 1) I don’t add visually to my shoulders and chest area, already too large in the bust department, so I look for ways to minimize the look of weight there. 2) Crop pants don’t look appealing on me.

    I would walk right past this. Don’t like brights. Don’t like gimmicky sleeves (too limiting with layering). If I was dressing the mannequin I would use basic black pants. The blouse looks dressy, the pants office-y.
