OOTD: Bianka Blouse

It's the Friday before a long weekend! Woo hoo!! My husband's birthday is this weekend, so we plan on going out to eat some good food tomorrow and probably hitting up the beach with the kids on Sunday. Do any of you guys have any plans for this Labor Day weekend?

Today, I'm wearing the Bianka Blouse I got back in D.C. a month ago. It was love at first sight with this blouse! I can't wait to wear it with boots and skinny jeans when it gets cooler. Today, I'm wearing it with flared jeans and my Wishbone Wedges. I recommend sticking with your true size in this blouse. I got a size 8, and it fits great!

During my 15 minute break this morning, I got my photographer co-worker to take some more pics of me downtown. I told him that he has created a monster! LOL! I guess there is one good thing about living in a small, run-down town - lots of interesting places to take pics. All of these locations are within walking distance from my office building. The pics on the steps were taken at an old building that I've always admired. It's a popular place for the homeless to hang out. The other 2 locations are literally across the street from my office building. I love the pics in front of the old book store!

I might try to hit up Anthro on Monday. I need to take back the Speckled Egg Cardi. It just didn't work for me. So, hopefully, I'll have some reviews coming up next week! I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend!

  1. Wow, these photos are beautiful Bonnie! Your co-worker is very talented, and obviously you are a great subject as well. The Bianka is stunning on you! It just rose a little higher on my wishlist ;)

  2. It seriously took me a second when I saw the first picture to realise it was you and not a catalog shot! That top looks so great with those wedges and your hair pinned back totally nailed the look.

  3. woo hoo great pics! your hair looks so pretty against the top, what fun you must have looking for places to have your pictures taken. Have a good long weekend (I've heard lots about Labour day this week but I've no idea what it is apart from a day off...!)

  4. I am rethinking getting this after seeing your lovely pictures. Went to the site and saw a new blue colorway. Aaargh, can't decide.

  5. Great shots!! I got the blouse for my bday - love how you styled it :)

  6. Oh my goodness -- these pictures are absolutely stunning. Both you and your co-worker are to be commended. So beautiful!

  7. Anjali: Thanks! I'm glad I inspired you to move it up on your wishlist! It's a great blouse!

    Suze: I'm so happy you thought it was a catalog shot! That's what we were going for! Thanks!

    Louise: It was really fun! I don't really know what Labor Day is either, other than a day off! I'll take it! LOL!

    Marie: You really should get this top! You won't regret it! Personally, I like the print the best, but you can't go wrong with any of the colors!

    Jan Alyssa: Thanks! Happy belated birthday!

    Jamie: Thanks! My co-worker has read everyone's comments, and he really appreciates the compliments!

  8. These pictures are so pretty! You look like a model on an Anthro catalog shoot. :-)

  9. Bonnie - these pictures of you are just gorgeous! You look like an Anthropologie catalog model! I love the Biance Blouse on you and your hair with the little braid is so cute!

  10. Gorgeous pictures! Love the blouse on you! Have a wonderful weekend :)

  11. Debbie: Thanks! All my friends don't understand why I'm not looking at the camera and smiling in the photos. I'm glad you guys "get" that I was trying to go for that Anthro catalog look.

    Kim: Thank you! I'm honored that you are a follower now! #82! Woo hoo!

    Carrie: Thanks! You too!

  12. What is the color "motif" of your blouse? I have it in "blue motif" which is the more muted pattern, which I love, but I really love this pattern too :) Thanks!
